Not a great start

I signed up to the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge organised by Amanda at RunToTheFinish blog:


The basic gist is that you earn points for exercise, along with bonus points for eating healthily, and as a result hopefully survive the holiday season in a fit and healthy state. Sound like a good idea?! I thought so.

So, the challenge started on Saturday, where I visited a friend in the afternoon and had a lazy afternoon. Then there was Sunday, which we mostly spent running errands and trying to sort out the clutter in our not-exactly-tidy house. So two days in and I've not earned any points at all! Rubbish.

The plan is to continue in the same pattern that I've been in for the last few weeks:
Tuesday - run
Thursday - karate
weekend - one of the following: parkrun, rollerskating in London, hiking or something else active!

So I plan to start accruing points soon!

I think I need to have set days for exercise to make me do it.

Don't worry about it. Looks like you have a good plan starting tomorrow. I only have 3 points so far but plan to kick it into high gear tomorrow.

@hiker mom - 3 points?! I can only dream of 3 points! But like you say, I will be on it tomorrow :) another 4 mile run here I come!

Lots of time to log some points... it is a long challenge!
