A Challenge

So yesterday I mentioned I was starting a new 3-week challenge.  Let me explain what I'm doing a little more thoroughly. 

Someone important somewhere once said it takes you three weeks to turn a behavior into a habit.  Using that line of reasoning, I have decided to trick myself into forming positive habits.  I lost my first 50 pounds or so by adhering to several 3-week challenges.  I challenged myself to exercise every day.  I challenged myself to log my food every day.  I challenged myself to drink the right 8 eight-ounce glasses of water every day. 

Here's the new one.  I'm challenging myself to log my intake on the Weight-Watchers website and to exercise every day.  I've done one or the other and treaded water the last year, so I figure if I combine both, I'll have great success.

So for the next three weeks, I'll be busting my ever-shrinking ass at the gym and log everything I eat. 

You can follow along on twitter by following me @100_Pounds or you can search the hash tag #3weekchallenge.  Feel free to contribute!

Anyone want to join me?  What's your 3-week challenge?
