August Exercise Challenge...Everyone Welcome!
 
The end of summer is here! But let's not get complacent thinking about our warm cozy sweaters. You still want to feel great about yourself, so get moving!! I'll help you keep track this month!

-------
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 Get Moving!


Post as frequently as you like and I will update the list throughout the month. Please tell me how many minutes you have completed along with your goal for the challenge. 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 here we go! Post your self-challenge and I will add you to the list!:goodvibes

I'm in for 2000 again. After 2 walks today I am at 72/2000. I overslept and missed my class at the Y so will have to do some of that workout later today, plus need to get back to lifting weights more often! Don't think once a month is doing me too much good! :rolleyes1

Desiree 08-01-2013 11:43 AM

Thank you for doing this again! We appreciate it! :worship:

I surpassed my goal in July so I'm considering just bumping my goal up just a bit. So I think I'll go for 1600 this month.

DisneyBelle99 08-01-2013 12:22 PM

Thanks for the double hosting!princess::flower3:

Please put me down for 1250 this month. Took me 3 months to make 1200, so time to step it up now!:thumbsup2

BuckeyeBama 08-01-2013 12:23 PM

Thank you for hosting again! I am in for another 3000 minutes in August.

Today's exercise - 111 minutes

With my wife:
Warmup walk - 5 minutes
Ran 3.5 miles (ran strides) - 45 minutes
Cooldown walk - 10 minutes

By myself:
Warmup walk - 5 minutes
Ran 3.5 miles - 36 minutes (was supposed to run 5 miles, but got up a bit late)
Cooldown walk - 10 minutes

August tally - 111/3000

roannamb 08-01-2013 12:41 PM

I'm in again for 1500 - and this time I WILL make it. I'll be down in Disney on the 31st and I want to enjoy the dining without guilt!

Raenstoirm 08-01-2013 12:50 PM

Hmm, I am not sure how to do this. I dont think of exercise by minutes completed. I am training for my first half marathon, so I am looking at distance, not time. I guess 1400 should work as a starting point. And if I manage to keep up posting on here for the whole month, I will alter it for September once I figure out how long my runs actually take each week.

Tinkerboy00 08-01-2013 01:39 PM

Im going to shoot for 2000 (roughly just over 60 minutes a day for the month).

Today I got 90 minutes (60 of Yoga, and 30 of weights)

njcarita 08-01-2013 02:31 PM

1200 minutes

KateB 08-01-2013 02:41 PM

I'm in for 950

An hour today and I'm off to
60/950

roannamb 08-01-2013 05:05 PM

mrsdrake625 08-01-2013 05:10 PM

Thanks for hosting again! :banana:

2TxAgs 08-01-2013 06:12 PM

Thanks for hosting again Linda!

In the 100s all week here - it's like walking in an oven in the evenings. LOW temps in the morning are 80! I'm lining up my excuses for fewer minutes this month. :rotfl:

Let's try 1100 again, with 43 completed this morning.

Desiree 08-01-2013 06:18 PM

65 minutes on the elliptical today

65/1600

Rose&Mike 08-01-2013 07:06 PM

2000 for me this month.

Thank you so much for hosting again Linda! :)
