    Hey all, I was looking for a new challenge to get stuck into as the May Day challenge is almost over, and I thought I would steal the name from a very old Radio One annual competition where they gave away amazing prizes each day in May.

    Instead of giving things away I thought perhaps we could do something different and new each day in May? I would like the challenges to help give us a healthy mind and body, to help keep us on track and motivated throughout May.

    May 1st - Save £'s as you lose lbs, buy or find yourself a piggy bank
    May 2nd - Find your local park and take family or friends for a walk
    May 3rd - List 10 things you love about SW and 10 things that you wouldn't be able to do without it
    May 4th - Make a playlist for your mp3 player or a CD of ten songs that make you want to shake your booty
    May 5th - Compliment at least 5 different people today on their appearance


    Some ideas I had were:
    • Drink nothing but water today, and make sure you drink at least 8 glasses.
    • Compliment at least 5 different people today on their appearance
    • Use at least 1 Free/Superfree food that you have never tasted before in a meal you will be eating today
    • List 10 things you love about SW and 10 things that you wouldn't be able to do without it
    • Get off the bus a stop earlier, or if you drive, park in the furthest space from the shop you want! (thx eilidhsmummy)
    • Dance around your living for half hour (thx tinkerbellsmum)
    • Using the stairs instead of lifts (thx chubbyemma)
    • Find your local park and take family or friends for a walk (thx Kizzib)
    • Save £'s as you lose lbs, buy or find yourself a piggy bank (thx Kizzib)
    • Drink 5 cups of Green Tea (thx Kizzib)
    • Do the housework you've been putting off (thx Kizzib)
    • Try a recipe you have never attempted before (thx Eternalflame)
    • Work up a sweat with three work outs (ths Eternalflame)
    • How about writing something positive about yourself in regards to weight loss and stick it on your fridge (thx miss_williams)
    • Make a playlist for your mp3 player or a CD of ten songs that make you want to shake your booty

    Although I would like us to make a target and track the weight losses over the period perhaps we can do so in our signatures and keep this thread to do a daily update of how we get on with the day's task.

    Would anyone else care to join me or am I just talking nonsense?

    **hugs**

    I'll sign up for this!

    How about go for a nice family walk in the park?
    put money in a piggy bank and spend it on yourself at the end of the month? eg 50p for 1/2 lb lost, £1 for each pound...I do this!
    drink 5 cups of green tea a day (it works!)
    do your housework (stops you from being lazy! get the hoover out!)

    Thx for those Eternalflame, I have adapted them to be daily challenges, although wasn't sure about the swimming as not all of us are confident enough to squish our excess pounds into a swimsuit :(

    1st of May Challenge

    Okay I won't have access to a computer until tomorrow evening so I am going to post the first challenge which is **drumrolls**

    Save £'s as you lose lbs, buy or find yourself a piggy bank!

    When you find your piggy bank you can put it in a place that you'll see it everyday and then deposit 50 pence for every half a pound you lose. Save up for a treat you when you hit target... and No you cannot remove money when you have a gain :p

    Good luck people :)

    Wow, this is a fab idea Cobweb - I will definitely sign up for this! :)

    I have a piggy bank somewhere in a box upstairs gathering dust (actually I think it's a "Finding Nemo" fish bank lol) so I will be on track with challenge number one tomorrow!

    How about writing something positive about yourself in regards to weight loss and stick it on your fridge.
    How many lbs/stones you have lost?
    How many dress sizes you have dropped?
