I may not be leading the pack, but I think I have solidified my place as a solid middle of the road girl, and I'll take it. Here are the points for Saturday the 26th of November until Friday, December 2nd:
Saturday: Cycled 6 miles easy, 40 minutes of yoga, 40 minutes of core and upper body, veggies (7 pts.)
Sunday: Rode 15 miles easy, veggies (6 pts.)
Monday: 1 hour of yoga, veggies (4 pts.)
Tuesday: 80 minutes spin, veggies (9 pts.)
Wednesday: 12 miles of easy cycling, 20 minutes of yoga, 20 minutes of upper body/core, walked 1 mile, veggies (8 pts.)
Thursday: Walked 2 miles, 50 minutes of spin, veggies (8 pts.)
Friday: Upper body strength and core for 30 minutes, 50 minutes of spin, veggies (7.5 pts.)
Total points: 49.5
I'm so pleased - my goal was for 40 points, so this is great. I also just realized that you can count your points from stretching and foam rolling! I haven't been keeping track but I will start that now. It will probably add up to a couple of extra points each week.
As you may guessed, I'm just a little bit competitive. And by a little bit, I mean once you start a game of Monopoly we play until the bitter end or you forfeit and I am queen of all. I found this game last week in Target and I so desperately wanted to buy it:
But ultimately I had to put it back. I have a reputation ( I swear I've only done it once....or maybe twice) for throwing the pieces and messing up the board if I lose. And you just can't do that with chocolate.
Do you stretch or foam roll regularly?
Oh yes. I've always stretched after any workout, so it's just a habit now. Nothing crazy - usually 5 minutes at most. I foam roll less, but whenever I can remember. Lately I have been because I'm discovering new muscles that hurt from biking.
Are you maybe just a little too competitive when it comes to board games?
Tim and I used to play our travel Scrabble all the time, along with iPod games like Jeopardy and Trivia Pursuit, but that slowed down when I had temper tantrums about the results. If I win, the game is awesome. If I lose, the game is dumb/stupid/broken/someone obviously cheated.
