    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!

    Woo-hoo!!!!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    So happy to see our challenge participant list growing! :goodvibes

    I've added names in the first post for anyone who has their name in their post. If you don't want it there, let me know. If I haven't put it there and you want it listed, let me know. I just love when everyone encourages each other and especially by name (like friends or something.) However, even though I know many of your names from real life or other fitness websites, I have not listed it without your permission.

    Looking forward to us all being stronger and more fit at the end of October. :cool1:
