another challenge ....

| 3 Comments

It's challenge time again!

I love a challenge ... well ... unless it's the Ab Challenge with the smiley happy model, that just makes me want to stick hot pokers in eyes.

Chandra has put together The March Boot Buster Challenge!

What I like about this type of challenge are the points. You get points for everything. Well almost everything, all the good things that we should be doing. Exercise, eating well, drinking water, even stretching.

Here's the point system:

Exercise Points:
1 point per mile walked/ran
1 point per 15 minutes of "other" cardio (ie spinning, kickboxing, step, etc...)
1 point per 15 minutes weight training or pilates
1 point per 30 minutes of yoga or stretching or abs

Healthy Eating Points:
1 point for every 3 servings of fruit/vegetable eaten
1 point per 24oz water drank (max of 16oz can come from tea/coffee)

Yesterday I racked up 13 points. I love obsessing about the points. I've already calculated what I could potentially earn today and the rest of the week, then I re-calculate my total points if I drank the equivalent to a small lake of water, and ate nothing but vegetables.

I realize this makes me appear slightly unstable. Don't worry I am completely aware of the new level of insanity I have reached. As long as your are aware you aren't really crazy ... right?

It's 11am, I've been playing with my point spreadsheet, downloading the cycle schedule and checking my mileage for way too long. I wonder how long my enthusiasm for points and my status as employed will last?

I'm in too! The winter version I did really got me on track, so this should help keep me going!

That's what the crazies down at the cuckoo's nest tell me.

Holy cow, your feed hasn't been updating. I resubscribed you. I've missed so much.

I LOVE the new banner. And guess what, we have matching hair now.
