Last year the inaugural Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge roped in almost 100 participants for a rip roaring competition that helped us all to enjoy the holiday season without packing on any lbs!! For those not worried about the weight, it was still a great motivator to maintain fitness and make sure you are putting some time for yourself on the crazy holiday calendar.
The challenge is back this year and I will be out gathering prizes for our winners (think Headsweats visor, ProBars, towels, gym bags, energy gel)…due to a little controversy over last years winner… who we all still think was probably blowing smoke… I am keeping the point system the same, but possibly switching up how the winners are selected. I want to reward the person with the most points, but we’re going to need some validation that you actually earned those points if it comes in to question.
Challenge will run from Nov 23 to Jan 8…this helps to cover you for the major holidays!
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 elliptical)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies
Because I am all about taking care of your entire mind, body, soul connection there will be additional posts/questions where you can earn points throughout the challenge.
Keep track of your points through whatever means you'd like...just be honest. I will put it to a vote as to how you would like to report points:
A. Enter them yourselves in to a Google Doc. Means you can see at any time how others are doing, so long as they are updating the sheet.
B. Send them to me weekly, so that you have to wonder all week long if you are beating the competition or not.
Which point option is more motivating to you? Leave your choice below when you say HEY I’M IN!
This was great motivation for everyone who participated last year and of course there is a new and improved Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge button for your website which will earn you an extra point if you post it and help gather some friends to the challenge.
So that’s the game folks…whose up for the challenge??? Sign up by leaving your name below and a link to your blog if you’d like it to appear on the list of participants.
