I gladly accepted the challenge today. A nice hike of almost 7 miles. for almost 2.5 hrs, My moving avg speed was 2.7 mph. Which is not bad for some rough country. Now what is on the agenda tomorrow.

Week 8 Challenge

Increase your activity again

At this point in the challenge, some people will say they have reached a plateau in their progress. Perhaps weight loss has slowed or stopped all together. Your body gets used to and accommodates to routines, so to get your metabolism moving again, try some new things. Experts say you should change your workout routine every 4-8 weeks to keep your body guessing.
Below are some suggestions from Spark People.com.

o Change the type of exercise you usually do. The possibilities of aerobic exercise are endless. If you walk, try cycling. If you take kickboxing, try the elliptical. Consider adding some of these possibilities to your routine: running, jogging, walking, elliptical machine, swimming, cycling, indoor exercise, outdoor exercise, hiking, fitness videos/DVDS, group fitness classes like kickboxing, aerobics, spinning, stair steppers, etc.—anything, just change it up!
o Change the duration of your workouts. Try to increase your minutes as you become fitter, and occasionally, try a shorter (but more intense) workout. Add some strength training if you have not been doing it.
o Change the intensity of your workouts. . This includes working at an incline or harder level, sprint work, distance work, maintaining intensity, or interval work
