As usual commit to as few or as many minutes of exercise as you wish to challenge yourself to do. Please post here something like "I'm at 21/400" or just 310/1000. That way I don't have to search to add up all your numbers.

I'll update as I get the chance. This month I will be scoring again most of the month, then in May I will be scoring online from home up to 50 hours/week. Busy, busy.....

10% - Getting Started!
25% - On your way!
50% - Half-way there!
75% - You CAN do it!
90% - Just a little bit more!
100% - You DID it!
Over the top!

I have just a minute to come on and say that I am committing to 1500 minutes again this month. I would have bumped it up, since I went over my goal for April, but I will be away for 4 days and don't plan on doing any formal exercise during those days. I'll try to BBL to catch up...........P

not sure how this works...do we update daily? I'll figure it out, I guess!

Y'all's numbers are intimidating to me, but I need some exercise accountability.

So...May goal 500 minutes (blush)

I know how you feel but don't be intimidated - no one is comparing or judging, do what's best for you. I felt that way too and I started at 360 minutes, 30 minutes 3 times per week. I almost didn't start on here because I felt my numbers were too low...kind of crazy looking back at my thinking that. I really like posting here though, I like seeing my numbers go up and the pretty colors Julie makes them. :goodvibes Congrats on your first 15 for May!!!

79 yesterday...still walking because of my back but I'm moving...:)

Spent five hours rolling myself around the zoo today! I know it can't count one for one, but I figure that probably equates to about 90 minutes of actual exercise time based on the fatigue my arms are feeling. So that makes me 110/500!

Off to update.

I am supposed to begin online training for scoring standardized tests at home today, but can't login & the people in Iowa aren't in until 8, so quickly getting on here. I need to score 150 hours between now & the 28th.

I'm usually a SAHM to DS24, DS20 & DD18, but March - May I score standardized tests at a scoring center & this year can continue some at home....if it works! So going to be a super busy month.

My activity will drop this month, I'm sure, & my numbers are so high because I use what my BodyBugg counts as 'moderate activity'.....burning 3+cal/min.

I love my Bugg, but am BAD with food and stress...oh well, someday I will get to goal......

Welcome to all!!
