Dedicated December Exercise Thread

Dedicated December Exercise Challenge

I chose this as our theme for the month because:
1. December is the hardest month for me to be motivated to exercise so it takes dedication
2. We are all dedicated to our love of Disney!

So...with that in mind:

The challenge for December is ON! The goal of this thread? To make a commitment to exercise for a specific number of minutes this month (you choose the goal that works for YOU).

A goal of 30 minutes a day will be 900 minutes for the month

A goal of 1440 minutes for the month is 24 hours (a full day!) of working to improve your health

So set a goal and join in!

When you achieve:

10% of your goal, your color will change to Blue
25% will bump you up to Orange
at 50%, we'll celebrate by turning you Purple
at 75%, you will become a Great Gray Go-Getter!!
In keeping with tradition, you be Red at 90% (cuz you're on fire!)
and you'll be Wish Green upon achieving your goal.

Whether you've joined this journey in the past or if you're a newbie - WELCOME!

Here's who's joining us so far!

2TxAgs: Goal - 1200 minutes – Progress 642/1200 = 53.5%

I forgot to post mine! I was going to go for less than November but decided to keep it the same which just means I need to be more dedicated at the beginning of the month!

1575 for me

I just finished a 30 minute walk. It was icy which is very rare here (snowed on Friday and stayed which is even rarer!) so it was slow going.

I'll update the thread with everyone's goals later on today when I'm at work. Have a great day everyone!

I'd like in for 600 minutes. So 5 days of 30 minute walks a week. Very doable for starting out again. I didn't start a goal in November because I knew my brother was having surgery. He'll be working on walking too for his recovery from back surgery. We will start going to the park trail/path and he'll do some fishing. I'll just keep walking or relax by the little man made lake.

We walked 40 minutes Saturday night. Doesn't count for this challenge goal though. It was a nice walk. We will go this evening so we can see all the new Christmas lights in the neighborhood.
