A few weeks ago I signed up for Amanda's Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge. It started last Saturday. It's pretty easy really, just track how many miles you walk, run, or bike or time spent doing weights or cardio. You get points for pretty much everything you do and then you can stay in shape over the holidays and compete against others for some great prizes. You can still sign up - just click on the link above.
It happens to be a bonus for me that I'm in the late stages of marathon training right now....so yeah...I can earn quite a few points. And it didn't hurt that I had my first ever 19 mile run the day after the challenge began.
Last week stacked up like this:
Miles Walked/Ran - 45 miles = 45 points (1 point for each mile)
Miles Bike - 21 Miles = 7 points (1 point for each 3 miles biked)
Hours Strength Training - 1 hour = 3 points (1 point for every 20 minutes)
Total Points - 55 - Woot!! Woot!!
You can also get points for 7 servings of fruits and veggies everyday. I didn't really track this but doubt (sadly) that I met that most days. So this week I have something new to focus on.
Hope you are all staying fit and active through the Holidays! I know I ate enough this weekend for 3 people.....NOT GOOD!! I wish I could say I feel fat and happy, but really I just feel fat!
What are you doing to stay in shape this holiday season????
