1000 minutes challenge! (January)

Posted by   + Show Post

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)

Ok I wasn't active in the group at the beginning so I wasn't aware of the challenge.  But I just added up what I've done so far for the month and I'm currently at 775. I'm only counting hours that are specifically devoted to exercise, gym, walking, etc. I hope I make it.  Setting a goal to do a little more each month would be cool.

I haven't been very active in this group for awhile and have never stuck with doing one of these, but I'm going to really try this month! I'll update my minutes later on once I upload my workout from my bodybugg! Lucky for me, I'll be off to a good start since my workout today was LONG!!! My goal will be 1,000.
