Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge

After Pile On the Miles, I can definitely see how a challenge is the right way to get all of us going over the holidays... and keep off the unwanted pounds while also increasing our fitness!! So in that vein I am reaching out to see who is interested in .....

Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge

This challenge will run from Dec 8 - Jan 4 thus getting us through the majority of the holiday parties, sweets, treats and festivals. Please leave a note below by this Friday if you would like to join... I'm still working on prizes so that info will have to come later!

HBBC Rules
1 Point per mile (run or walk or snowshoe)
1 Point per 15 minutes of weight lifting or pilates
1 Point per 15 minutes of another form of cardio (i.e. kick boxing, elliptical)
1 Point per 30 minutes of stretching or yoga or abs

Keep track of your points through whatever means you'd like...be honest.

Report your total points by Jan 5 to my email amandacbrooks at yahoo.

Each week I'll have everyone at least post how they are doing to keep us all motivated... assuming that is you are up for the challenge???
-----------------------------------
Gratitude Journal: Debating how I want to continue this...so for today I'll start over with December.
Dec 1: I am grateful for all the yummy holiday recipes I have found this week.

    I am a reader but would love to do this challenge! I wanted to do the POTM challenge, but after suffering an overuse, running-related injury this past summer, I cannot run over 15 to 20 miles a week. This is great, b/c you can include other forms of fitness!!! Hooray, i'm so excited! Keep us posted and count me in.

  32. Sounds great - I'm in!

    How many points does snow shoeing get?

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is perfect. I didn't actually lose weight in last year's challenge, but I didn't gain any either, and that is half the battle. I did gain some this year, and I'm hovering below one of those "don't cross me" numbers on the scale.

    Thanks for posting in the old challenge forum!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'll give it a shot. I found your blog from POM. Thanks for the friendly competition/challenge to keep everyone motivated. I'm excited!

  47. What a great idea. I thoroughly enjoyed POTM. I am not sure I can keep track of this, but I will try my best.

    Oh and I didn’t read Skinny Bitch, but I’ve heard about and my sister read it. I recently cut out splenda and am using much less sweet stuff in general. Maybe one day, I’ll just stop altogether.

    I don't know how we do this, but sign me up!

    I got to your site yesterday from POM and read all about your crazy wedding. That is nuts! I haven't been married nor am I engaged but I have nightmares about botched weddings all of the time. Hope by now it is an endearing memory and I hope that woman is out of business!

  82. Hey there. You may not know me, but my name is Matt and my wife is Bobbi (nhershoes) and she told me about your challenge and wants me to participate. Of course, I probably won't beat her, but at least we can finally see really how much exercise that I really do get. Thanks!
