BOOTY BUSTER RECAP OF WEEK ONE:
I've been participating in the Holiday Booty Buster Challenge from RuntotheFinish and I'm so impressed with what a great idea it is! It's great to have that extra incentive on days when I'm thinking "Oh, maybe I'll just skip the gym tonight". Plus, it gets me thinking about eating more veggies and rethinking my snack items for work (ie: skip the power bar, bring the orange)
Mon Nov 23: Short run, 3 miles on treadmill at 9 minute pace plus 30 minute lifting (chest and back). Did NOT make the 7 servings of fruits and veggies today. (4 points)
Tue Nov 24: Middle distance run, 6 miles. Again on the treadmill, since its dark by the time I get out of work. 30 minutes of weights (shoulders and arms). DID make the 7 servings of fruit and veggies. (8 points)
Wed Nov 25: Twelve miles on exercise bike. No lifting, but DID make the veggies! (5 points)
Thur Nov 26: The gym was open today! Did 30 minutes of weights (legs and abs) and 3 mile run outside at 9 minute pace. Totally got 7 servings of fruit and veggies today! Love Thanksgiving! (6 points)
Friday Nov 27: Twelve mile bike ride plus fruits and veggies. (4 points)
Sat Nov 28: 30 min pilates, 15 mile bike ride, fruit and veggies ( 7 points)
Sun Nov 29: Long run on the canal. 12 miles plus fruits and veggies (13 points)
WEEKLY TOTAL: 47 POINTS!
Goals for next week: fruits and veggies every day. Try to get workout in every day, which will be a challenge, since I am in a class in Connecticut this weekend.
