You can choose which level you want so sign up for, and I chose Advanced. Keep in mind at the time I was running 40 mile weeks getting ready for my marathon. Now...not so much. As in, 2 weeks, zero running miles logged. I'm still counting spinning, yoga, stretching, weights and pilates, along with points for eating 7 servings of produce each day. But I don't think I'll be winning any awards among the Advanced kiddos.
|See those last 2 empty bubbles? Yeah.....|
The HBBC started on a Saturday, the 19th of November, so here's my progress for that week:
Saturday: Nothing. Not a great start, I'll admit. But I got my produce in! (1 point)
Sunday: At home workout, 45 minutes of pilates and resistance training, plus veggies! (3.25 points)
Monday: Nothing - not even all my fruits and veggies! Whoops. (0 points)
Tuesday: 1 hour of yoga, 15 min. pilates, 15 min. upper body, and my produce! (5.5 points)
Wednesday: Spin workout at home for 55 minutes and all my veggies (6.5 points)
Thursday: Spin for 35 minutes, upper body and abs for 30 minutes, veggies! (6 points)
Friday: One hour of spin and veggies (7 points)
Total points: 29.25
Well, I'm not going to win the whole thing, but I love how HBBC will keep me on track over the holidays. Now that I have a viable cardio option (bike) I can try to make up some more points as well. Next week's goal: 40 points! And you better believe I'll be aiming for my 7 servings of fruits and veggies every day.
Anyone else doing Amanda's Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge? How do you like it?
I love that it's holding me accountable, but of course my competitive self wishes I was still marathon training to rack up those points!
Do you find it a challenge to eat 7 servings of fruits/veggies each day?
Some days I do. Without tracking, I can be all over the place - some days 7 or 8 without trying, other times 2-3! This forces me to keep track and include some at each meal/snack, which I love.
