Monday Motivation -- HBBC Week Two Wrap up

Week Two of the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge is finished and accounted for. I did not complete my weekly goals but I did much better than Week One and I'm ready to kick off Week Three on the right foot.

My goals for the week were to run three times and to try a new vegetable recipe. For various scheduling and "life" reasons, those just did not happen. However, I ran twice, I did two ab workouts, and I did Jillian Michaels' 30-Day Shred; I ate seven to eight servings of fruits and vegetables every day; and I had outdoor play time with Muffin nearly every day. Overall it was a pretty healthy week for the family (because when I'm eating fruits and vegetables, everyone's eating fruits and vegetables). I also checked in at the Facebook group every day for a bonus point. On Thursday, rather than earning bonus points, participants wagered points on completing a specific healthy activity. I wagered my veggie point on keeping myself to only three cups of coffee or tea. Yeah, I drink a lot of caffeine. Cutting down to three cups for the day had me ready for bed by about five o'clock in the afternoon. But I did it so I got to keep my well-earned veggie point. My total points for the week: 22.6.

Outdoor Play
This week my goal is again to run three times and to keep myself to three cups of coffee or tea every day. (It's 7:15 Monday morning and I'm already done with one cup. It's going to be a long week.) Three cups means one cup in the morning, a small at the coffee shop, and one cup later OR one cup in the morning and a large at the coffee shop, with none later in the day.

Here's to a Week Three!

Somehow I missed the wagering. Hope week 3 is going well for you!
