Spring into spring with your exercise goals!

Everyone is welcome to post fitness and exercise goals for March 2011 in this thread and then track them through the month. Log your workouts, your minutes, the times you take the steps instead of the elevators, anything that gets you moving more whether the goal is big or small.

State your goal in a post. I will add your goal to the goal list. When you reach your goal, it gets turned Red.

We have a sister thread March Weight Loss Thread (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chicks-up-challenge/226776-march-weight-loss-thread.html) for weight loss goals. Join in one thread or both! We'd love to have you with us.

Thanks for setting up this challenge again, gardenerjoy!

My fitness goals for the month of March are:
1. Buy running equipment (good running shoes, a decent sports bra, and an arm strap or something similar for my iphone)
2. Get through the first two weeks of the C25K program
3. Exercise 22/31 days (gym or C25K outside)

Good luck to everyone this month! :)

Hi my goals for this month are to do SOMETHING every single day, and to do C25K every other day without fail. I'd also like to log my strength training, and hope to see an improvement in my abilities by the end of the month.

I'm allowing myself three nothing days in the month, but only want to use them if I'm in too much pain to exercise, not just if I'm being lazy!

1 15 mins walking (to supermarket and back) 60min Davina workout DVD TOTAL = 75mins
(Davina progress tracker - warm up 100% completed - legs and bums - finally mastered lunges! All squats completed, marched through 3rd fat burning interval - upper body -completed all, minus weights for now! Didn't do first fat burning interval as it followed straight on from last on upper body and I was knackered! (didn't do chair part as I had no chair in the room, substituted it with wall press ups! abs-did all of the fat burning intervals, and tried my best to do the exercises, but found this section the toughest, couldn't keep up with all the reps, need more work on abs!

All in all, happy that I'm making progress from the last time I did this a couple of weeks ago, when I couldn't complete any of the intervals the whole way through, cardio defo on the up :)

2 Horrible bad foot meant no c25k tonight. Hoping it'll be better enough to do it tomorrow. Did some arm strength training for about 20mins

3 NOTHING achieved. Major hangover and super dooper sore legs from Tuesday's workout saw me slack already :(

4 C25k week three day two, plus an extra six min run in the end. And half an hour strength training using my resistance band and focusing on my arms.

5 C25K week4 day1, 20 min walk too and from supermarket, Davina 30 min cardio box. Completed everything bar the 'bouncing' in the boxing intervals (trying to save my knees). Impressed at how much easier the cardio intervals have got now. Next thing to work on is my rhythm! Best exercise day of this journey to date, and it's a Saturday!

6 Swam 8 lengths at the pool, walked around a lot (how I miss my car!)

7 C25K Week 4 Day 2

8 Biggest loser 30 day kick start DVD, was so unmotivated, hot and tired, did 40 mins of the 60. Taking this one of my repertoire it's just so dull, I need music to workout too!

9 C25k Week 4 Day 3 (added an extra three mins onto the final run to make it up to 8 mins)

10 Self made 50 min strength plan with cardio intervals. Mainly focused on arm exercises using resistance band, also did some exercise ball stuff working my abs and a little bit of thigh work. Last ten mins I jogged (non stop) a mile away from a few weeks ago when I could barely jog one minute intervals :)

11 C25K Week 5 Day 1

12 Nothing :(

13 Swam 12 lengths

Alright so I made my gaol in february lets see if I can maintain this momentum in March!!

I have switched back to my resistance/speed programs for miles, last night I did 1.5miles in 65 minutes & burned 1089cals if I'm remembering correctly. I was burning more calories doing the programs, I am keeping up with the Biggest Looser 2 dvd & adding Just Dance 2 for an extra boost on "days off":D

GOAL for march is 28 miles & 570minutes strength/cardio

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE :D COME ON SPRING!!!!:D

My goal for March is 1600 mintues. I'm going to continue marking with a * the days that I do a different exercise than the day before, because variety really reduces my aches and pains.

I'll post our collective goals as a list tomorrow.

Hi strength! (great username) You'll want to post this goal under our sister thread -- March Weight Loss Thread (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chicks-up-challenge/226776-march-weight-loss-thread.html). Do you have an exercise plan to help you reach your weight loss goal? That's what we'll keep track of here.

My very first Goal is to be under 200 IBS!!

March 2 - 35 minutes on the treadmill
March 3 - strength/functional training w/ trainer @ 7 or 8pm

I didn't make it to the gym early enough tonight to do more than 35 minutes on the threadmill before the gym closed. It's funny though - I remember when getting through 35 minutes felt like a struggle. Now it feels too short.

I'm in soooo much pain, after my workout on Tuesday evening, I woke up yesterday in a bit of pain, but still managed a few reps of stretching exercises and squats in the morning, but then went and bruised the sole of my foot (How?!) in the afternoon, so couldn't run my c25k last night.

And now today, I'm in agony! My thighs are burning up and soooo sore, my back and shoulders and tummy muscles hurt too, but my thighs, wow, I can barely walk and stairs literally kill me! Is this a delayed reaction from Tuesday's workout?

I've massaged and rubbed my thighs with tiger balm, which feels so good, but I can't do a lot with them tonight. SO, I"m going to have to stick to a basic arm workout and then move my c25k to Fri and Sun.

Disapointed to not be able to do more, but, I've got to listen to my body today :(

I've slightly altered my goal, so I'm not already failing it on the 3rd! I've added three days in the month (one used up yesterday!) that, if I'm in too much pain from working out too hard, I'm allowed to miss a workout. But, I'm not allowed to use these goals for laziness.

Two more left this month, hoping now I can still stick to my goals!

I had an amazing workout tonight! I managed to not only complete c25k but complete it with ease, and ended up adding a 6 min run onto the end, when the intervals at the moment are only three. I feel like I could have gone longer, but am trying to save my legs given the agony I was in yesterday and really wanting to get a workout in tomorrow too. When I did the exact same routine on Monday, I just about did it, but it nearly killed me, there was NO WAY I was adding 6 mins to the end, I love seeing progress :) Moving onto week 5 this weekend, bring it on!

I also did a new resistance band regime, 15 reps of each exercise and managed 2 sets. The exercises were, squats, bent over rows, chest presses, wood chops, triceps extensions, lateral rows and bicep curls.

This time next week I want to be posting with my 8th consecutive day of doing something on the exercise front. I've learnt the hard way not to go at it TOO hard, and I'll certainly not be drinking between now n then, so, bring it on!

I had a super-lazy first week in March. I was very tired and had headaches every day. I still do, so it's time to man up and push through it because I can't keep sitting on my ***. I decided it might help to post my goal routine so I edited my original post to include my intended workouts for each day for the rest of the month. Back in January I was doing C25K 3 days a week and doing spin 2x a week. My plan is to resume that, while also bringing in weight training 3x a week and 1 long walk per week.

Someone please kick me into shape and tell me that I MUST do abs every time I go to the gym, not just on strength training days, and that all my excuses are just excuses. It's pure laziness, pure I-just-don't-want-to. I forced myself to do them today, but every time I'm going in for a cardio day I think about skipping the ab workout.

Chickadee-I'm trying to do abs EVERY time I work out too. Even if it's 50 reps, it really helps and I think I feel my abs strengthening quicker than other muscle groups.

It's so worth it, I agree, and I keep trying to tell myself that building more muscle just helps my body burn more calories even when I'm not working out - which is true! But my inner voice keeps whining, "I don't wanna......" :lol:

Well, tried to repeat W1D1 of C25K, outside this time instead of the treadmill, and it didn't go very well. :( Not sure at this point whether I'll try it again on the treadmill or outside, but if it's outside it's going to take me a while to get past week 1. Maybe I'll just keep working with the W1 workouts for the next few weeks, and then start W2 with the other ladies here in the second week of April.

HI all, I'm doing pretty well on the exercise front, and a million times better than the nothing I did for so long :)

I used up one of my nothing days on Saturday, so only one left to get me to the end of the month, hope I can make it! (I can still have easy days when I don't go all out and run or spend an hour doing a workout DVD, but I have to be active in someway not to use a nothing day)

I'm about to move my C25K outdoors today, after doing the first 5 weeks in the comfort of my own home in front of the tele! I'm actually pretty excited about it, just hope I can run outside too lol

Chickadee, good for you for sticking at the programme even though it's tough right now. I think your idea of a couple of extra weeks on week one sounds good, with perseverance, you will get there :)

Have fun active weeks everyone :)

I did C25K outside today rather than on the treadmill at the gym. As it turns out, the middle school nearby does not have an outdoor track, but does have a relatively flat path that runs around the baseball and football fields in a ~1/3 mile loop. So that's where I walked/ran, and it went pretty well. Definitely harder on my lungs running outside because my pace is faster, but easier on my legs than running on the treadmill where my gait feels unnatural. All in all, I'm happy with how it went. I'd like to be able to make it to the school during daylight hours once per week to do C25K there... we'll see how often I can make that happen.

Made it through the first day of Week 2 of C25K today, woohoo! :carrot: Though I was struggling through the last two run intervals, I definitely liked the fewer, longer run intervals better than the shorter, more frequent run intervals. I'm pretty certain I'll fall apart when I have to jog for 3 minutes straight next week, but at least now I know I can make it through Week 2 and so meet that goal for March. :)

I'm kind of slacking the last little while :( Knees were really sore last week so I took a big break more then I should have, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Plan on getting a lot of workouts in for the weekend to play catch up a bit probably wont make both goals but hopefully I cab at least get in miles...

bummer, I got busy (and lazy!) and stopped posting on this thread, no way I can remember back and fill it in now, but I know I've done more exercise this month than any other in my adult life!

Will fill it in for the last few days and then try to remember next month!

I was so beat today, and went into the gym thinking there was no way I was going to be able to get through W2D2... but I fought my way through every one of the run intervals. Happy I did it, but tired, and my shins are hurting some. Glad I was already planning to take tomorrow off.

I've decided to stop doing C25K, as it's just not working well for me right now. It's too hard on my legs, and I don't enjoy it at all. I was so happy to be back to my walking on the treadmill today -- and I burned way more calories that way without the excess strain on my body.

chickadee32: I also had to give up running. For me, it was due to iliotibial band syndrome. I hoped it might go away when I lost the weight, but it hasn't happened yet. Fortunately, there are wonderful ways to get in shape that don't involve running! In some ways, I think I've been more open to variety and, therefore, reduced my incidence of overuse injuries, by being forced to look to other activities.

gardenerjoy: Ouch! I hadn't heard of that condition, but read up on it a little and it sounds very painful. I'm sorry that it has persisted despite the weight loss... is it a constant problem for you, or only when you do specific activities? I keep thinking that I should do some other cardio activities besides the treadmill, but haven't gotten around to any others yet. The rowing maching has been looking kind of appealing though... I may have to give it a try one day soon. Boxing also seems like it would kind of fun :)

I didn't want to give up the study time yesterday and so didn't make it to the gym, but I passed my exam today (yay!) and felt great, and so went and had a nice, long workout.

How is everyone doing on your March goals? Let me know if you meet them so I can put it in the summary post. I'll start an April thread now because I may be too busy tomorrow (DH's birthday).

chickadee32: The ITBS isn't a constant problem, fortunately. It flares up sometimes usually in response to an activity like running, but sometimes sitting too long in the wrong position will do it, too. Congrats on passing your exam!

I SO wanted to meet my exercise goal this month, but I fell one day short. :( I was just exhausted yesterday, and regardless didn't leave work early enough to get to the gym before it closed at 11pm. I'm disappointed with myself, but oh well. Looking forward to April. :)

March was not so good I didn't meet either of my goals :(
Ended with 22 miles and 395 minutes strength/cardio got really busy in March and I wasn't organized enough to get in workouts. April is a new month I am going to try and get myself organized :)
April here I come!!
