Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge Week 3 Recap

Hey, everyone!  Man, it seems like the weekends just fly by, don't they?  Can't complain much, though, since there are only 9 school days until a two-week break.  I'll take it!

It's that time of the week where I recap how the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge went!
Activity-After Joe and I went to church, I made it to the gym for a 45-minute CXWORX class.

CXWORX is Les Mills fitness class devoted to the core.  While the class is usually a 30-minute class, my gym offers it for 45 minutes on Sundays.  This may seem like a short amount of time, but I was feeling sore in muscles I didn't even know I had the next day!  Great workout. (3 points)
I also earned my water and Facebook points for the day.  Total-5 points.

Activity-The Les Mills classes continued for me as I made it to BodyPump after work.
I love BodyPump, and it was great to get back in to it after so long!  It's great to work every muscle group in an hour! (4 points)
I also earned my water, fruits+veggies, and Facebook points.  Total-7 points.

Activity-After leaving work a little late, I didn't really want to go to the gym.  I texted Joe, and he convinced that I would feel better once I went.  I'm glad I took his advice, because he was right!  I did a 3-mile tempo run on the treadmill (brining back Treadmill Tuesday this week, too!) with a warm-up/cool down in there also.  (3.56 points)
Also, I earned points for water, fruits+veggies, and Facebook today.  Total-6.56

Today was a planned rest day, as my muscles were sore from the previous three days.  I did get in all of my water, fruits and veggies, and participated on Facebook.  Total-3 points

I originally planned on hitting the gym, but I just didn't.  I also didn't earn any other points today, either.  Total-0 points.

Planned rest day, but I earned water and fruits+veggies points.  Total-2 points.

Activity-I ran the Ed Root Memorial 10K in the morning.  I love this route, and I got 3rd place in my age group!  Full recap to come this week.  (7.2 points including stretching before/after the race)
I certainly got in my water points (Facebook, too!).  Total-9.2 points.

Weekly Total-32.76 points
Total for the Challenge (3 weeks)-88.7 points

I'm pleased that I earned more points this week than in the previous two weeks.  As long as I continue to improve that total, I'll be pleased!

Question for you: Do you like Les Mills classes?  How did you do this week with your health-related goals?


  1. you make me want to join a gym so I have fun crazy classes to try!!

    1. Group exercise classes are my favorite :)

  2. Way to go!! Also, I'm so jealous that you have a 45 minute CXWorks class! That is one of my favorites, but I've never seen it longer than 30 minutes before!

    1. The instructor does a spin class at 2:15, so she makes it go until 2:00! Convenient :)
