Default 300+ Freezing but Fabulous February Exercise Thread

WELCOME



to the February 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!

In 2007 the 300+ club exercised 205,352 minutes. Let’s break that record!

To keep track, just add your minutes to the existing group’s minutes. If you’re new, look at what other people are doing – it’s pretty easy to figure out! To help everyone keep things straight, please note the OLD minutes and the number of NEW minutes you are adding, such as
Group total ~ 500 + 50 = 550 minutes

We've made a great start in January (19,474 min!), let's try to get in 15,000 minutes for February!!!

I know my February is going to be very busy... and a few days shorter than January, so I'm going to set 900 minutes as my goal.

I'm going to stick with 1000 minutes including 20 miles for February - considering it is a shorter month and there is a week of vacation in there. I will exercise every day on vacation and keep track of the minutes - what a change!

Even though there are only 28 days in February, I am going to set myself a goal of 1200 minutes. :]

Roll on February!

I'm not setting a goal for this month. I logged 2,220 minutes in January - that was 60-90 minutes every single day! I have ONE planned day off in Feb due to a biz trip. Other than that I will be hitting the gym every day!

Today I spent 45 min on the elliptical and 20 minutes doing abs, stretching and trying out the punching bag.

Personal Total: 65

Group Total: 250 + 65 = 315
