Plateau Buster Challenge - End of Week One

Monday, April 12, 2010

Week One:
The challenge was to incorporate new cardio routines one or two times this week. Monday, I went and walked the stairs for an hour. Friday, we introduced speed training to our running schedule.
For the week ending Sunday, April 11th, I lost 0.8 kg.

Week 2:
This challenge begins on Sunday, April 10th.
This week's challenge is to aim for a wider variety of foods and mix up your calories at least three times a week. Instead of eating at the bottom of your range all the time (or the middle, or the top), try a few days at the lower end, a few days in the middle and a few days at the top. www.sparkpeople.com/mysp

This week should be a real challenge as I'm already having issues staying within my range for calories. Bleah. I don't like food challenges.... yet

    Suezette, the stairs that I did during that week were just training stairs ... On the 17th, though, I climbed the Calgary Tower in support of the Alberta Wilderness Assoc.
    GOOD TIMES!

    Under "Healthy Lifestyle" in the start page bar there's a choice called "Motivation". After you click on that, there's a picture of a group of four people and the words "Challenge Central". Click on that. The "Plateau Buster" challenge is on-going but there's another in May called: SparkPeople's Official Healthy Habits Challenge. I've also joined that one (following Nancy's lead).
    I'm going to do the Climb this weekend. It's not optional, I'm determined to climb those dang stairs.
    The snow is not gone... it was.. and then it started to snow again today. I'm seriously considering moving to Arizona LOL

    Where are you getting these challenges from? Are you just making them up for yourself? What have you decided about the C4W challenge? Is your snow all gone yet? We were supposed to get rain today, and I even washed my car to try to insure it, but no such luck. It was all cloudy and gloomy this morning, looked promising, then the darn wind came up and blew all the clouds away.

    Keep us posted on how this works, since I'm on a killer plateau myself I might have to give it a try, although I also don't like food/calorie challenges.
