Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge Begins

Time to get your arse self in gear the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge is ready to roll! I have sent out an email to all those who provided an email address with access to the Google Doc spreadsheet. For those needing a quick tutorial…click the link and plug in your numbers each week… you’re done!

An email was sent TODAY with a link to the spreadsheet. I had some invalid email addresses and a number of you who have not sent me your email. So if you did NOT receive the email yesterday make sure to leave me your email address below or email me…and put your email in the body it’s much easier.

BUDDIES
A number of people thought having buddies or teams might help to give them extra motivation. It makes sure that when you start to whine that you are so busy with wrapping and family in town that you can’t possibly take time for exercise, they will give you a virtual slap or encouragement to say “Hey, I made my family take a walk when they came to visit and everyone said how refreshing it was.” or “If you don’t make a few minutes for your own health you know you’ll get even more stressed, so go now!”

I’ve created groups rather than just twosomes in case not everyone wants to participate:

HBBC RULES RECAP
Challenge will run from Nov 23 to Jan 8…this helps to cover you for the major holidays!

HBBC Points
1 Point per mile (run/walk/snowshoe)
1 Point per 3 miles biked
1 Point per 30 minutes of weight lifting, Pilates, yoga, stretching or abs
1 Point per 15 minutes of another form of cardio (i.e. kick boxing, aerobics, swimming, elliptical)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies

RUNNING
Back to Miami for my long run this week…it was exciting and fresh after all the traveling. I busted out of the gates running much faster than in previous weeks…uh the result being I only ran 14 instead of 18 miles. BUT they were a lovely and wonderful 14 miles. We are now 2 weeks from the race…HOLY STINKERS how did this happen?

POTM has made me wayyy to ambitious with all my running and walking lately. I mean it’s great but my poor little legs are exhausted because I keep finding more reasons to take walks so I can get in the miles. Seriously I am a challenge freako.

Pictures tomorrow from my fun times working in Vegas (seriously it was fun) and other randomness! Hope everyone is living it up this weekend, we only get one go round!

  3. Quick question for the challenge: I take a 1 hour bootcamp style class 3 times a week. How would I do points for this? It's a circuit type workout - sprints, stairs, pushups, etc...

  16. Your awesome but forgot me I'll email you :) 14 miles sounds great! I ran 10 here in KC and realized that there are few running options on the MO side. EEK We got into some hairy situations. I am hoping to do well on the Challenge I need it. I have been bad about eating 3 meals a day lately and just grazing so this should help!

  51. You have a lot of last minute additions to your challenge. I was hoping, if not too much trouble if I can add myself as well. dancincuty at aol dot com. It it's too late, no problem. I just couldn't decide if I was up to trying this again this year. Last year was a bust for me but I am hoping for better this time.

  56. One quick question... an hour of Spin class... would that fall under miles biked or other cardio... since I have no idea how many miles I do in there, and it's certainly not easy like your avg bike ride....
