For challenge week 4, Team Emma (my team) came in 2nd.  That is 2 weeks of 1st and 2 weeks at 2nd…. we’re pretty damn great!
Challenge # 5

You unsteadily climb to your feet and shuffle toward the sounds. When you get to the end of the block you are excited to see several cars and motorcycles heading out of town. But that’s not really what gets you excited — it’s the pack of people you see following the procession of vehicles that’s got your stomach grumbling. They are like a juicy herd of cattle just waiting for you. You have no idea where they are all going but it doesn’t matter. You are so starving your stomach feels like it’s going to eat itself.

You stumble out onto the road, limping after the group. A discarded tire in the middle of the road almost trips you but you manage to jump over it, kicking your butt with both heels. The hop was a little too much for your decaying muscles and you find yourself sinking, lunging to one knee. But you push yourself back up to a standing position and continue limping toward the group.

Several people at the rear of the pack suddenly fall behind as they get involved in an intense conversation. You are only a few feet away — the group is so engrossed in their argument that they don’t even notice you approaching. One of the guys in the group suddenly stops and bends down to fiddle with something on his shoe. The people are still arguing — so much so that they don’t realize that their friend is no longer with them.

Choice 1: Immediately jump on the guy to satisfy your hunger.
Choice 2: Wait until the others are farther away before you attack.

Food: Keep your calories in the “green” every day this week!
Water: Drink 8 cups of water a day.
Cardio: 175 min/week (I recommend 35 min/day, 5 days a week)
Strength: 225 Cross Lunges (right lunge, left lunge = 1 rep)
Agility: 225 Double Leg Butt Kicks (Do one leg at a time if too hard)

Sorry I’ve been so slack about updating the challenge on Monday’s when I start them. I’ve been seriously busy! hardly have time to fit m y workouts in, and I’ll choose a workout over blogging most days, even though I really miss blogging when I do!
I have been loving this zombie challenge.  I’ve found it so motivating.  I will finally be updating my before and after photos the last week of March.  I feel soooo much better with all the running, strength/agility and paying closer attention to my calorie intake.
I finished “The Walking Dead” that was on netflicks so now I’m hoping they put the next season up soon! I do usually watch so  much TV alone and get into a series like that so I need to find a new series to watch while on the treadmill as I wont be running outside much for a while.  It is DEADLY icy.  I attempted a run a few days ago on paths that should be cleared by the city… no such luck, it was so icy I could hardly walk.  Home I went to the treadmill.
Any suggestions for netflicks TV series I should get into??  Right now we have the Canadian version.  Hoping to switch that soon.
