Default Alternachicks Exercise Thread

Hey everyone , I hope you're having a good day today! Well anyway I wanted to start a new kind of thread that would bring us all together. My brother and my mom do this on the 300+ club and I figured, why not us try it? The whole concept is to make a goal of how many minutes exercising you want to do this month and eventually we all tally up into a group total for the year.

For example my goal for January is 750 minutes of exercise. So everytime I workout or whatever I choose to do I will post it and add it to my personal goal and a group total! Since this is my first time doing this lets make a goal for 100,000 minutes by the end of the year!

This is an actual post and an example of what we can all do every month, week, day, or whenever you want!
I had done 487 minutes so far this month, so my personal tally was 487/750

Today I did 45 minutes of Yoga so I would post this:
Group Total: 487+45=532

So I kick off our group total with 532 minutes.

And we keep adding on until we acheive our goal. So Alternachicks are we up to it?

I walked for about 30 minutes today. I went at least a mile or more. I don't really know what I'd want for a goal...

migotokokoro-Great job! thats some much needed minutes to our group! Walking is one of the best exercises you can do, plus its simple! I really didn't know what I wanted for a goal at first either. Just pick a number (probably in the hundreds region) and work toward that. You don't have to start out drasticlly big, work with what youcan do. All this is really about us getting up and doing something to change ourselves for the better.

So migo with your 30min
Group total 618+30= 648! Thanks to you migo!

Cool

Thanks Wabe! I have found that in my own exercise routine music keeps you upbeat and going! I love listening to Elvis when doing cardio, it really gets me pumped up. Now you might not listen to the king, but whatever works for you! Just let me know how you're doing! Keep up the good work!

Whew! I just did 15 miles of bike time in 60 minutes! The only part I really hate about biking indoors is that your butt gets really numb after like a half-an-hour. That always blows, but its great exercise! Had to add 600 minutes to my monthly goal, otherwise I would have finished today. Thats a major no no

Personal Goal- 677/1350 (That looked better in my head )

Group total 648+60=708

Thanks ladies for your minutes and time! Keep adding! Lets try to acheive a goal of 1000 minutes by Sunday night!

I walked about 20-25 minutes, part of it was up-hill. I also did a full run to the bus stop today which was about a block long. I caught the bus! :P lol Just though I'd throw that in there. It's only afternoon so more might be added. I even ate perfect yesterday and so far today. No sweets or anything. I've eaten a small meal every three hours. Hopefully I can successfully keep this up.

Well migo I'm glad you caught the bus! For next time I just want to let you know you can post your minutes added to the groups. I only want the group to always have an accurate total due to my sometimes weird math, forgetfulness, and days like these . haha

Group Total: 708+25=733

For your extra effort I added 25! Nothing wrong with a little running, see you caught the bus!

Is it alright if I call you migo or would you prefer another name?

It's fine if you call me Migo. Sadly I didn't work out more today. It's only 6:30pm here though... I will probably take 10 minutes to do at least 50 situps. I used to to 100 really quickly, but I'm bigger than I was last time I lost weight. I could do 100, it'll just take me longer. I am so tired from waking up at 6am this morning. I just want to pass out because I went to sleep at about midnight... -_-;; I ate good at least, ALL DAY!!! ^_^ lol

Good Luck Everyone!

6 in the am? Ouch! Well its okay that you didn't workout later, at least you did workout. wow 100 situps, I'm so jealous.

Eating good is also a good way to sustain weight, plus it makes you feel better!

Just finished my last exercise of the day
57 minutes cardio & 37 minutes samba dancing

Personal Goal-771/1350

Group Total-827

Lets keep it going!
