You pick and choose as you like, aim for 30 to 60 minutes a day. Walk, run, box, yoga, do cartwheels, dance, at home, at classes, with dvd's...as you please.

Check in daily and report in how stronger/sleeker/faster/calmer/healthier you're getting.

Hi, everyone! Looks like you have all gotten off to a great start this month. I'd love to join this challenge. :)


April 1: Walked 3.2 miles
(Really enjoyed it, it was a beautiful afternoon & the walk seemed to go by fast.)
April 2: Walked 3.2 miles
(So didn't want to go on a walk but my fiance talked me into it & I'm glad I did. Been walking this distance most days for about a week now & kind of feel like I should be doing more at this point, but hard to motivate myself to kick it up a notch ...)
