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)

I always forget that!  I've thought about it in the past.

My brother and his wife do CrossFit, and love it.  In fact, everyone I know that's tried it loves it.  Someday I'll have the time and money!  LOL  Once school is over, and I'm working as a nurse, I think I'll be able to do it.  Of course, soon after that we'll likely be TTC.

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

For real yoga is expensive. Im very fortunate to have a box a few miles away. CrossFit posts each WOD online and has video explanations of everything so you can try it at home too.

Quoting musicpisces:

The nearest one is 30 mintues away, and I have to jockey for my workouts as it is.  Then once school starts, it'll be all downhill from there.  In this hippie town, you can't throw a stone without hitting a yoga studio.  They're just expensive.  I should try getting a punchcard at one.  A nurse I worked with in clinicals was in the process of buying one nearby, so I might see how that went!

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

I think everyone has the potential to love CrossFit. I know most boxes do a free week, try it :)



Quoting musicpisces:

Sounds like heaven to me!  I wish I could.  I really miss yoga, and I know I'd love Crossfit.  Never used that darn groupon.

Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

Lmao! I start with yoga, crossfit and reward myself with a hike





Quoting musicpisces:


Quoting Hunnybadgerkins:

Im going a little higher than in the past... 5000.

Wimp.  Pffft.  LOL

Geez, how do you do it??

Oh I haven't even touched Pinterest.  LOL

I'm sure I'd be obsessed!  I tried this new DVD today, absolute crap.  SOOO boring.  I think Crossfit would be right up my alley!

The only dvds I do at home now are les mills. I really like it. But I really can't wait until you can try CrossFit.
