Get Outside - It's October! - Exercise Challenge - EVERYONE WELCOME!

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. (I've changed the colors for the Fall!)

At 10%, you'll be green
When you reach 25%, you'll be yellow
When you reach 50%, you'll be orange
When you reach 75%, you'll be darkred
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!

(Final Update 11/4/13 - Congrats to all!)

I'm in! Thank you for hosting this challenge!

I am challenging myself to 1200 minutes.

I walked 30 minutes today to and from court, in heels, with a briefcase. LOL!

So, I am at 30/1200.

OK! Way to start off the beautiful month of October

Those of you with fall colors in your neighborhoods or on your runs, POST A PIC! We're still hovering around the 90s in central Texas, so not much color (other than drought brown) to speak of yet.

Hoping each of us achieves our goals (exercise and otherwise) this month.

I did not meet my goal of 1000 last month. But I know that I can do that and better. I think the key for me is consistency.

goal - 1,100 minutes

a lunch time run and some evening ab. work = 43 minutes

43/1100 = 1057 left

Thank you so much for hosting! And, I love the change to fall colors

After a disappointing September, I'm in again this month. My goal is 900 minutes. I went on a 34 minute walk today.

Total=34/900
