Can you believe that we are already at an end of our second week in December? Where has the time gone? Christmas is 11 days away! Well, it’s the end of our second week of the December Challenge, lets see how the four challengers fared this week. Also, I asked the girls to pick one favorite item for working out or running.
Challenger 1: Julie Chartrand
After a slow first week, Julie vowed to make it up this week for the challenge, She definitely lived up to this promise, She did 45 minutes of yoga, had 4 runs, a 6.5 Km (40 min), 5.25 km (35 min), 7.5 km (48 min) and a 5.5 km (35 min), walked the dog 4 times for a total of 80 minutes and took her son public skating on Saturday night for 1 hours. Wow, Julie, what a come back, that’s a total of 5 hours and 43 minutes. I’m very impressed! She’s raising the bar! I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next week. Her total for the month so far is 7 hours and 30 minutes of activity.
Julie’s favorite pick includes her iPhone apps for running and working out. These apps are Ideal Weight, Nike Running, Adidas miCoach, MyFitnessPal and Nike Training Club.
Challenger 2: Nancy Cote
Rain, shine or wind, Nancy does her walk in to work and back to her car Monday through Friday (20 min round trip). On Monday, she did 30 min on the elliptical and 30 min of free weights, On Tuesday, she did 30 min of walking around the block with the kids pulling each other on the sleigh to look at the Christmas lights in the neighbourhood, followed by her usual volley ball game (2.5 hrs). On Wednesday she went to the gym (1 hour) and again the same routine at the gym on Saturday morning, followed by 30 minutes of skating with her daughter. That’s 9 hours and 10 min of activity. I know Nancy, and this is pretty much her regular lifestyle. Nancy is leading the way in this challenge with a total of 15 hrs and 30 min.
Nancy’s tip: She bought an e-reader last year and enjoys using it on the elliptical since the pages don’t fly all over because of the fans at the gym.
Nancy’s pick for her favorite item is her sunglasses. Nancy say “… I always have my sunglasses, whether I work out or not”, Nancy is wearing those sunglasses in the image above.
Challenger 3: Cindy Fowler
Challenger 4: Lucie Palka
My pick for favorite workout or running gear is the Avantree Trackpouch. It’s an armband to put my iPhone in. It’s great since it fits my iPhone 6, as well as other items I want to carry such as cards, keys, lip balm or tissues.
So that’s the update for this week. I still can’t believe we are already have way through December! Enjoy your week everyone! Keep up the great work ladies.
