BLC week 1 challenge

Thursday, April 14, 2011

We are having a CHALLENGE-WIDE CHALLENGE this weekend. This means that ALL of the BLC teams will be working on the same challenge.

B - BLOG/JOURNAL - Sit down every day of this Challenge and either make your plan or analyze your day/progress. Keep your FOCUS and decide what you deserve a pat on the back for, and what still might need a little tweaking. 5 pts per day

L - LIST YOUR CALORIES - If you bite it, you write it; If you sip it, script it; Every nibble, be sure to scribble...lol, you get the idea. We all can get dieters amnesia. Though when we write it down, we cannot forget...and it will help to hold us accountable...It will give us an idea of our food patterns and areas that we may be able to improve upon. It lets us know where we stand on the day. 5 pts per day

C - CARDIO/STRENGTH - Choose either or do both...Why not do both at the same time...This is YOUR challenge...Do what YOU can. Work at your own fitness level...but think of this wonderful new challenge and WHY you are on this journey and work it out...5 pts for every 20 minutes up to 15 pts per day

+ Bonus 5 pts for completing all three levels. You do NOT have to max out the "C" to get the bonus.
Perfect Score 30 per day MAX

This challenge will run Friday (4/15) through Monday (4/18). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Saturday, my plan is to let my body rest from all the cardio I have been doing lately. My body aches! But I still want to get in my 60 minutes for the challenge, so I plan to do (and actually did do!) 6 of Coach Nicole's workouts from her Fit, Firm, and Fired Up DVD.

Sunday, April 17 - Points: __30___ (30 max/day)
For Sunday, I started out by going to the local farmer's market. The problem is that they only sell locally-grown stuff, so all there was is greens, apples, oranges, strawberries, and onions. I want more fruit and different veggies. Oh well. I had a few samples (apple, almon, raisins) and dutifully tracked them in the nutrition tracker! I also went to the local library looking for different workout videos but all they had were shelves of yoga and pilate videos so I didn't get anything. I did go to on-demand TV and did some different exercise videos that I found there.
