The Details:

You are given 3 points per day.  Each item, piece, glass, spoonful, bite or crumb that is not on your list costs you a point.  There are no negative points. The lowest possible points for the day is zero.  You are responsible for keeping track of you food and your points for that day in your success journal.  Be prepared for random checks from any coach.  No success journal costs you 1 point.  You will need to turn in your total points for the week each Sunday through email to your coach.  Point totals for each team will be posted to the website each Monday Night.

Winnings:

The wining team will receive a combination of cash and prizes.  The winning team will be determined through total percentage of improvement in all areas (WOD, measurements, pictures) and total points.  So remember that if you lose a point you are losing a point for your team as well.
