Let's start 2013 off right!  1000+ minutes of activity in January!  Track your minutes here!  Feel free to set a 500 minute goal, or 2000!  1000 minutes breaks down to just 32 minutes per day (which allows for rest days with higher activity minutes on other days).  500 minutes would be about 30-35 minutes every other day.

Obviously exercise counts (running, workout DVDs, lifting, elliptical, etc, etc, etc), but you can decide what other stuff you include (going for walks, heavy cleaning, gardening, etc, etc, etc).  I'd probably count that stuff btw.

Everyone reply  to this post daily or weekly or however you want on how you're doing with your fitness minutes.  I usually reply daily with my minutes for the day :)  

Who is in this month?  WE CAN DO IT!  :0)

2 - rest
3 - 20 minutes
4 - 20 minutes
5 - 20 minutes
6 - rest
7 - 40 minutes

9 - 40 minutes
10 - rest (or rather, slacker day)
11 - 40 minutes
12 - 20 minutes
13 - 132 minutes
14 - rest
15 - 45 minutes
16 - 40 minutes
17 - 20 minutes
18 - 30 minutes
19 - 50 minutes
20 - 170 minutes

Well, I'm going back into the gym in a week ( gotta wait until the monkey faces are back in school since I did not pay for childcare) so I'm in! 

I'll shoot for 3000 minutes this month..That is 96 minutes per day... I can do that easily. :-) 

ETA- 

Current time as of 1/17- 1296 minutes... I need 1704 more minutes of activity for the month to make my goal...that is about 121 minutes per day ...gotta step it up some!
