Default 300+ Yule Love Exercise in December

WELCOME!

to the December exercise thread! We're making exercise a habit, giving ourselves some accountability, and getting healthier in the process!

In this thread, we track the number of MINUTES we exercise for the month -- whether it's walking or swimming or sweaty housework! Most of us set goals for ourselves (I personally will not exercise much without a goal). If you are a goal-setter, early in the month set your own goal! If you're just getting started, feel free to start with a smaller number of minutes (I did!), maybe just a few hundred. It seems easier for many of us to build on the habit rather than meet a very high goal right away. However, you can also just jump right in without a goal, and you can join us anytime in the month!

I've had it. I let my food habits slide months ago, and so began a slow creep of weight. Now I've let my exercise slide too! That's IT! December goal: 1200 min. Who's with me?

I am with you Heather. I am going for 1000 minutes, and I even have a "stretch" goal of 1200 minutes. I really really really want to lose 12 pounds in December, and it's going to take some exercise!

I'm with you on the goal. November was a disaster (for me), with little exercise, a couple of off plan days, and a cold that dragged on for ages. It left me with a 4 pound loss, and that's unacceptable. I've got a week of school left, then exams, although I'm finishing up my last project today. I'm still going to do a maintenance week (food-wise) during my exams, but I wasn't planning on doing a rest week (exercise-wise), so I'll commit to: 1200 mins in December!

Last year I did 18,000 minutes in exercise. I so want to beat that this year even by a few minutes. I am at 17,522 personal exercise minutes this year as of Nov. 30th. I am in this to win it. So, for December I will commit to at least 1500 minutes.
