Back in May I set a goal to wear my Polar Watch to every workout for the entire week and burn at least 500+ calories each workout. Total burn for the week = 3,533! I said it will be definitely something I do again. It was very motivating and fun to push myself.
Thanksgiving is this week and what a great week to do the 500 calorie challenge! Which means I have committed to workouts on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday…(Shopping burns calories right? So it totally counts ;))
Join in on this challenge with me! I picked 500 calories because I know I had a good workout when I burn 500+. Remember height, weight, and your current condition affect this number. Someone shorter than me, lighter than me etc, will have a different burn. Maybe a 300-400 burn is your challenge. You know what a great calorie burn is for you, REACH IT!! If you don't have a heart rate monitor, put it on your XMAS list. For the challenge, those without a monitor be sure to push yourself more than you normally would in a workout. Make this week really count
***Did you know according to studies, the average Thanksgiving dinner can carry around 3,000+ calories?! That is with turkey and all the trimmings. That is equal to: 12 Turkey sandwiches, 15 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, 29 Reeses PB cups, 15 KIND bars, 17 servings of Guac, 11 Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks, or 18 Tacos from Taco Bell…..Who's Hungry?
