This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

Kathy - My challenge plan

My main plan of attack is the Josh Hillis 21-day kettlebell swing challenge.  Josh assures me that kettlebell swings are more effective than boot camp, aerobics or spinning, that, in fact, they burn 20.2 calories a minutes as opposed to the 8 or 9 calories the above mentioned exercises burn.  While this sounds really great, what this information really means is that I am going to die.  So for the next 21 days, in a row, I will be doing kettlebell swings - I may not be doing any typing....just saying. 

Anyway, while I can still type, the rest of my plan includes the following:
1)  Dog walks 4-5 times a week.  This involves walking up and down hills for about a mile and takes 30-35 minutes. 
2)  Yoga 2-3 times a week.
3)  Vegetables only for supper.
4)  Plenty of water - drink 48 ounces at work plus another 16 or so at home. 

Well, there it is, the part that is set in stone.  May refine as I go along.

PS:  If you haven't posted yet but still want to the do the challenge just weigh tomorrow and begin!
