Default 300+ March Madness Exercise Thread

WELCOME



to the March 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 and I'd love to see us get close to 20K minutes for March!!! What do you say chicks and roosters??

Minutes so far:
19,474 January
12,537 February

32,011 min thru Feb

It's a short month, and I forgot to get this thread started!

I'm shooting for 1100 min this month. Hubby and I are actually BOTH working on the same goal.

Let's see if we can turn it up as the weather warms!

I'm going to try and aim for 1800 minutes this month! I aimed to do 1200 minutes of exercise for February but I went way past the goal so 1800 seems a bit sensible to fit into my busy lifestyle!

Wow...March already!?!!? I just posted on the Feb thread and then realized I was in the wrong month. I'm not setting a minute goal for this month, but I will do something every single day! Last month I put in 35 hours!

Today was 60 minutes - elliptical/abs/stretching.

Personal Total: 60

Group Total: 165 + 60 = 225
