Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge – Week 1

If you follow my blog, you may have noticed the new widget along the bottom: HBBC.  This stands for the 2011 Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge!  This challenge was designed by Run to the Finish to help inspire us to keep fit during the upcoming Holidays (November 19, 2011  – January 6, 2012)!  There are 3 groups you can assign yourself to – Builders, Doers, or Advanced – and rack up “points” for activities that you complete.  These points are accumulated and then you can be entered into drawings for prizes, such as clothing, books, gift cards, workout gear, etc.

1 Point per mile (run/walk)
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, water aerobics, snow shoeing)
1 Point per 10 minutes of high impact cardio (i.e.spinning, kickboxing, lap swimming)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies (here are details on what is a serving)

Go ahead and sign-up if you are looking for a challenge to keep you active during the upcoming Holidays!
