I so want to kick some butt this month but have no idea what I will be able to do with my darn shoulder the way it is. Unless I hear great news soon, I will probably sit another month out from the challenge but I will still be doing what I can to work out. Sigh.

:carrot::bravo::broc:


Karen- FWIW, how about setting a smallish goal, like 500 minutes? That way even if your shoulder really limits you there will still be walking or other lower body, low impact exercise. I know that I can really start to feel sorry for myself when I have limitations (I am so not good with limitations!) and that can lead to no exercise and comfort eating. Just a thought :)

2 - garden cleanup at Fairgrounds and village walk with Disney
3 - walked down for groceries
4 - walked to Church and then down to pond at the farm with the dogs
5 - 20 mins treadmill
6 - loaded several batches of firewood into Moel's tractor trailer
7 - 90 minutes at teh gym

Your goal sounds reasonable, Ruth, and much more suitable for me, too. I've been pretty consistent with working out every day with the wii and my bike, but now that the weather is warming up, I'd like to move outdoors with my exercise and include gardening and other activities. So my exercise goal is to perform some type of physical activity at least 60 minutes, 5 days a week.

April 1 - 60 minutes (wii aerobics, bike, gardening)

My goal is to do something physical 5 days a week, I'm currently doing three, if I work out more, that's great.
