Be it just waking up a little early and doing just a little something for your body, to running around the block or taking a walk 3x a week, to x many minutes, to weight lifting. Heck even if you just want to make a habit of parking your car farther out in the parking lot, post it here! Everybody has to start somewhere, start here with us!

Exercise goals will be listed here, while weight loss goals, etc. will be listed in our sister thread, "August Weight Loss Challenge". (Stole that from Tummy Girl )

I need to do this!! My exercise goals will be 90 minutes a week, so 360 for the whole month. I have not been exercising like I should and REALLY need to just get started with the exercise part of my goals...

carosmith14
07-31-2010, 05:30 PM
I haven't joined any of these exercise/weight loss challenges before, so here's my first!

I am starting my whole life-style change on Monday, 2 August 2010...and since I am just beginning, I'm going to set my goal to be pretty basic, moderate, and do-able ( I don't want to set myself up for failure from the get-go!!).

So, here's what I'm thinking. PLEASE let me know if you think that I am being over zealous! I want to do this right! Any suggestions would be great! Thanks so much!

My Stats:
21 years old
200 pounds


Overall, this is what my weeks will look like:
45 minutes of exercise a day/7 days a week = 315 minutes/week
315 min/week x 4 weeks =1,260 total minutes of exercise this month!

Again, since I'm just starting out, I want to start slow and eventually build up to a lot more minutes/month.

And, if I don't exercise one day, I'll double up another day :)

Sound good? Any suggestions for exactly what to do for workouts?

energie
07-31-2010, 05:54 PM
I want to be running 30-40 minutes straight this month and power walk 20-30 minutes for a total of 1 hour of cardio a day. For example, if I run 35 mins then I will walk for 25 mins.... or if I run for 40 mins I will walk for 20 mins. My goal is to try to get out there and exercise as many days as I can.

gardenerjoy
07-31-2010, 06:46 PM
My August goal is the same as July, crossing my fingers that I get some exercise time in when we go out of town.

August goal: 1800 minutes

Thanks for getting us going, MeowMix!

Yay everyone for setting great goals!

carosmith14: are you currently doing any exercise? Going from 0 to 45 with no rest days is a pretty fast start. But, I don't want to discourage you. The hardest thing, for me, is the time commitment. So, my suggestion is to keep the 1260 minutes number, but be prepared to do lots of different exercises if you get tired -- beginning strength training can be a nice balance to aerobic activity. A slow walk outside is always great. I count yoga and stretching in my exercise minutes if I need to make sure that I'm not overdoing it. Have fun!

Hey..
Yes, I do already exercise. I'm not an every-day exerciser, but I can get on the treadmill and run a mile 1/2 pretty easily (and walk indefinitely). I used to work out ALL THE TIME...but school became overwhelming and I found other "priorities."

Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely keep my 1260 minutes number..and I know there are going to be days that I don't get to work out. I'll adjust accordingly :)

Thanks!!

I caught up on recording my July Minutes today...oops! I'm going to continue to shoot for following my marathon training which is 4 days/week running and 1 day/week cross training (swim, bike, or lately gardening). Here's to a more organized August. July was a jumble and I want to get back on track with purpose this month.

I just found this thread and I would love to keep tack of my goal! My goal right now is to walk an average of 10,000 steps a day and 5 days of weights (started on 8/6.)

8/1 - 3915
Week 1
8/2 - 9275
8/3 - 10256
8/4 - 11004
8/5 - 13312
8/6 - 10274 - 1 circuit of weights
8/7 - 11983 - 1 circuit of weights
8/8 - 6765 - 1 circuit of weights
Total = 10410 average for week 1
8/9 -10500
8/10 - 10211 - 2 circuits of weights
8/11 - 10000 (Pedometer battery died today so I did what I did on 8/10) -30 minutes on Bike

In case you didn't catch it in the weight loss thread, I'm on improvised exercise now due to leg injury and chiro's orders. So, my goal will be tweaked to exchange elliptical or swimming for some running days.

8/2: Rest day
8/3: 34 min run
8/4: 72 min run

Yep, too busy on the weekend to post, but I'm hoping that'll get better as the year goes on. I've been doing more extensive gardening/landscaping/yardwork on my "Rest days", so I'm certainly burning good calories...just need to take in less!

My goal is to do at least 3 and half days a week:carrot:. It is so hard to get out of this rut. I really need to work out five days to reach my goal but I need to figure out a way to make myself love exercising. Or at least figure out a plan to ease back into physical activity. I lost some weight and then hit a plateau and sorta just gave up for lack of a better word. Now Im climbing out of this hole and it a little hard and I don't want ot make excuses.

Wow great job everyone!! I haven't been as good about tracking and exercising this month :( I've got some life things going on and I don't see next month being much better.

I'd like to ask if anyone would like to take over this thread? Since I haven't been a good little thread leader as of late and I doubt I'll be much better next month. So if anyone would like to take it over please do so! You guys are awesome!

Hooey, I was terrible about checking in this month. Perhaps that explains my terrible success at achieving my weightloss goal this month. I would call this month's exercise a success though, especially considering all the traveling and special events I had.

8.9: 40 min. circuit training (I'm able to avoid the exercises that hurt and still get in a good workout).
8.10: 15 min. circuit training (trying to take it really easy today--it's helping)
8.11: 40 min. circuit training
8.12: 70 min. zumba (trying to go a little easy because of my achilles tendon. It feels pretty good today, so I'm very happy).
8.13: 60 min. zumba
8.14: all day on my feet working a beer fest

8.15: 40 min. zumba
8.16: 40 min. circuit training, 35 min. zumba
8.17: 60 min. zumba
8.18: hackey sack 35 min.
8.19: travel--lots of walking but no intentional exercise
8.20: 60 min. zumba
8.21: walking walking walking

8.22: 75 min. hike

8.24: travel day, lots of walking, may get some exercise in yet!
