October Exercise Challenge -- Let's get fit together! (34 participants so far!)
Ted has done such a great job the past several months that his shoes will be very big to fill. :goodvibes I don't have his mad skills with excel either, so please feel free to correct my bad math or failure to make color changes.

Thank you again, Ted! :hug:


The challenge is on. And it's a challenge by you to you! Challenge yourself to do "x" number of minutes of exercise this month and then JUST DO IT!

Post here as frequently as you like and I will start a list in this post and keep it updated as frequently as I can throughout the month. As you post, please tell me how many minutes you have through that date and what your total challenged number is. For example "I did 60 minutes on the treadmill yesterday, and am now at 60/1200".

As you reach milestones for the month, your name and total will change color in this post.
At 10%, you'll be bright pink
When you reach 25%, you'll be orange
When you reach 50%, you'll be purple
When you reach 75%, you'll be turquoise
At 90%, you'll be red (because you are on fire!)
When you hit 100%, you'll be WISH green!

So, let's go, everyone! Post your self-challenge, and I'll make the list here, and then let's watch the list change color!

I'm in. I'll go with a modest 600 minutes for now, but I reserve the right to change it if things pan out.
Cross Country season hits it climax in October so hopefully I will be able to squeeze in a bit of me time.

bellaally 09-23-2012 10:52 PM

I joined September group and I am doing so good. I really want to test myself for October ......2,000 minutes and I will also be trying to do 30 miles of jogging, running,walking. Woohoo so excited 41 lbs down.........50lbs to go!!!!

debbieandroo 09-23-2012 11:49 PM

Great job on the weight loss, BellaAlly!

And, thank you, Cam, for hosting this month. Ted has done a wonderful job with a fun but time-intensive task.

I'll try 2000 again. The cooler weather seems to be re-energizing me.

Macca1111 09-24-2012 01:06 AM

I'll go for another 1500 this coming month - see if I can keep up the level of activity after the ToT 10-miler.

fitgirl36 09-24-2012 06:17 AM

I'm in. I'll go for 700 for October. However one week, I'll be in Disney...I do love jogging around cresent lake early in the morning though! So hopefully I can make my goal!:goodvibes

disneymom2one 09-24-2012 06:47 AM

I'm in. I'll go 3600 this month.

indygirl99 09-24-2012 01:46 PM

I'm in again. I will stay at 1200 for this month. Hopefull the rains will put out the wildfires and my asthma will retreat along with them.

minniebeth 09-24-2012 04:29 PM

I'll try for 1600 again in October~ need to start training for the WDW 1/2 in January after the ToT 10 miler next week!

Thank you so much Ted for the past few months!
Thanks keenercam for doing October!
You are both very much appreciated!

Way to go on the weight loss, bellaally! keep it up! :yay:

jillbur 09-24-2012 07:23 PM

I'm in again. I'll shoot for 1200 minutes again. Thanks!

NYUBwayBaby 09-24-2012 10:44 PM

Ooh, I'll join. I'll aim for 2000 minutes. Marathon training and personal trainer sessions should really help with that.

Chicago262 09-26-2012 12:29 AM

I'm in for 2000 minutes for October!! pixiedust:

mom2cgj 09-26-2012 09:52 AM

I'm in! I'll try for 1200 in October. Thanks for hosting!

acename 09-26-2012 11:31 AM

I'm in again for October. I'll bump my minutes up a bit to 1000. It might be tough for me with our vacation at the beginning of the month and getting ready for moving at the end of it, but I'm trying to aim high (for me) and hopefully come close. Good luck everyone.

C_leen 09-26-2012 03:27 PM

October Challenge

I'd like to be in for 800.
