Holiday Booty Buster Challenge: Are You In?
Amanda at Run to the Finish is hosting her fourth annual Holiday Booty Buster Challenge. Since I am new to her blog, I decided to jump in with both feet and give it a try. The plan is simple and will hopefully keep me mindful of those dreaded pounds that find their way to my hips and thighs between Halloween Candy, Thanksgiving sweet potato pie, and Christmas everything.
Go check the HBBC out. First you select whether you are a Builder (beginner), Doer (Intermediate/Regular Exerciser) or Advanced (you know, fanatic). It's based on the following point system:
1 Point per mile (run/walk/snowshoe)
1 Point per 3 miles biked
1 Point per 20 minutes of weight lifting, Pilates, yoga, stretching or abs
1 Point per 15 minutes of low impact cardio (i.e. low impact aerobics, easy biking, skiing, skating)
1 Point per 10 minutes of high impact cardio (i.e.spinning, kickboxing)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies
These are all the things we should be doing regularly. So how cool to score points for it and have a chance to win some awesome schwag.
So are you in? Head over to Amanda's and sign up. And good luck!
