This post is probably two days too late as technically I should explain the challenge before the commencement of the challenge.
So without further ado, here is what the cardio challenge involves:
(a) 30 days of cardio everyday (including the days I am travelling for work). Cardio on the travel days is going to be the hardest part of this challenge.
(b) Cardio in the morning and evening except the days on which I am travelling when it can be done either in the morning or evening.
(c) Steps requirements (Fitbit) for all days (except travel days):
- Days 1 to 5: minimum 10,750 steps
- Days 6 to 10: minimum 11,000 steps
- Days 10 to 15: minimum 11,250 steps
- Days 16 to 20: minimum 11,500 steps
- Days 20 to 25: minimum 11,750 steps
- Days 25 to 30: minimum 12,000
(d) Steps requirements (Fitbit) for travel days: minimum 5,000 steps.
The reason I am using the Fitbit steps count and not the Ozeri steps count is because I tend to forget that I need to wear Ozeri a lot. The Fitbit step count is usually lower than in the Ozeri step count so it allows enough margin for any difference between the actual and calculated steps to be corrected
Also, Fitbit syncs with other apps, which makes it easier for me to monitor progress and calorie intake, etc.
