I need to get serious with my exercise also.

I guess my goal for january is 300 minutes of some form of exercise. I figure since I've become so fixated on this separation with my boyfriend that I'll make myself walk whenever I start to get down/sad. THat will kick start things I think.

GOAL 300 minutes

Sounds like a nice way to keep track of what we are doing. I am in.

My goal is 1 mile walking/arobic video in the morning about ( 15 min ), 2 mile walking/arobic video in the evening about ( 30 min) Monday thru Friday. Saturday I food shop for at least 2 hours so I do tons of walking then. I have been told the body needs one day off a week so Sunday will be my day off. Plus resistance training Monday, Wednesday and Friday about ( 40 min each time ). Takes me that long to do the resistance exercises depending on what routine I am doing lol.

1 Mile Video About 15 Min Monday - Friday ( 345 min )
2 Mile Video About 30 Min Monday - Friday ( 690 min )
Resistance Training About 40 min Mon/Wed/Fri ( 520 )

Total Min 1555
Min So far 1704
