The hubby and I have always gone through the weight loss fitness journey. We’ve done so many exercise and diet plans from hiking, biking, heavy weight lifting, p90x, intermittent fasting but this year we thought we would try something different… virtual races.
Having a new baby doesn’t leave a lot of time to do an intense workout for 3 hours a day. It’s just too much for us so, we had to come up with something that we could do as a family. We love walking and found The Conqueror Challenges where a prefect fit to loosing our COVID weight gain.
The benefits of the challenges:
You can do it at your own pace with whatever exercise you choose. We decided walking is best for us. It gets us out of the house which is great since we’ve become hermits during the pandemic. Walking is easy for us to do with a 1 year old, all we need is the stroller and some good walking shoes.
The exercise is easy to track. We’ve linked our exercise app (under armor mapmyfitness) to the Conqueror app. Sometimes it takes about a day for the apps to update but it’s an easy press play and go tracker.
The Conqueror Challenges allow for teams to contribute to the overall goal. This brings us accountability and camaraderie.
You get stuff! Depending on the package you buy, you get… Entry into the challenge, Stunning finishers medal, Virtual postcards along the way,
Plant 5 real trees, and/or a T-shirt. This is highly motivating and the minimum package cost is about $30 which at least comes with a medal.
Again, going back to exercise, the best type is the one YOU will do consistently.
In the last 4 weeks, the hubby has lost about 14lbs and I’ve lost 5lbs. We just completed The Inca Trail Challenge which was 26 miles.
We plan to do The Romantic Trail which is 268 miles. The medal is a little beer stein which is perfect to bring on our reward trip.
As a reward for our hard work over the next 13 weeks, we are planning a trip to Busch Gardens Williamsburg on September 4, 2021. We intend to drive down on Friday September 3, 2021 and arrive in time to have a nice dinner and relaxing night. We will have a full day at Busch Gardens on Saturday September 4, 2021 and then travel back home on Sunday September 5, 2021.
