    Hello! I'd like to try this month too. I think I'm going to go for 1500. I'm worried I won't be as disciplined with the kids home, but I need to have something to push for, so there ya go :thumbsup2

    Thank you!!

    I would like to join the challenge for June. I usually walk for exercise. What activities count towards the goal?

    My goal will be 1350

    My morning exercise today:

    This portion with my wife:
    5 minute warm-up walk
    2.25 mile jog - 30:09
    10 minute cool-down walk
    Really proud of my wife - this was the longest run w/o walking in her life.

    This portion by myself, after the portion with my wife:
    4 mile run - 41:52
    10 minute cool-down walk

    Total - 97 minutes - a solid start.

    97/2500

    Updated through post 25. :)

    :wave:

    Got it! :)

    So exciting! We were so active on our trip in May--and I still gained 3 pounds! Hopefully you will have better results! It probably did not help that they took very good care of us at Olivia's at OKW--extra desserts, mimosas for our anniversary. And all g-f! It was awesome and worth every calorie!:love: Have a super trip!

    Welcome! :)
    Welcome!:)
    I don't know if we are the "in" crowd--but we are definitely the mov"in" crowd.:thumbsup2

    :wave:

    Everyone defines their activity differently. For this challenge, I consider anything I do that is purposeful exercise as activity. I wear a pedometer, and when I am traveling, I will count active minutes as well--which are minutes of activity over 135 steps per minute--this is a brisk walk. So basically, whatever you feel comfortable considering as exercise. Hope that helps!

    Great start! And congrats to your DW. But, just don't tell her that what she is doing is "jogging". My DH is much faster than me and if he said when he was running with me that it was jogging--let's just say it would be ugly, ugly, ugly.:rotfl2:

    ****
    Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!

    Hi! I've been reading and lurking on the Dis Boards for months but I have never posted. I decided my first post would be to sign up once the June exercise thread was started. Please sign me up for 1500!

    Is that the way you want us to do it, Rose?

    I did my 2-mile Walk Away The Pounds this morning, which is 30 minutes.

    Planning to work in the garden today too, so hopefully another 30 minutes will be added later today. :)

    Thanks Rose for hosting this month. Please put me down for 1500 again this month.

    I just completed the 8k portion of my race today and will do the half marathon tomorrow. Hopefully with DH if his back holds up. We were real slow today trying to take it easy but at least we finished it.

    Alright I'm in.

    I tanked in May, I worked out 3 days out of 31. Not good, not good at all.

    Kids have school for 3 more weeks so I can get at least 30 a day when they aren't home.
    My goal is 900 minutes
