December or January?

I have a long (2-week) stay coming up for business that I plan to use for the Hyatt Diamond Challenge which I can schedule in either early December or early January .

Completing in December gets it done sooner but doesn't seem to make any other real difference since I get the 60-day window of status just for being on the challenge. Is there any difference between that status and "earned" status? For example can I do the MLife status match based on challenge status? Would like to have the MLife Plat for CES in January.

The biggest reason to complete in January seems to be that the 12+ nights will then ALSO count against the 2014 qualification leaving me only around 10 nights short for the rest of the year to re-qualify as Diamond - am I doing that math correctly?

Any insight is appreciated - thanks.
