I'm in. This thread always makes me feel guilty :D. My goal is work outs 3-5x/week, core stuff too.

1 - 3.0 mi run, 0.5 mi walk = 3.5 mi (41 min total)
2 - 40 min bike
3 - off
4 - 40 min treadmill
5- off
6 - 3 mi snow/ice run! (36 min with warm up, etc)
7 - off
8 - 30 min treadmill. I hurt my leg a bit on 1/6 , not sure how. Well, just made it a whole lot worse today :(. I just don't have the body for a runner....
9 - rest
10 - 45 min bike. Doesn't hurt the leg, guess I'll do this longer....

I have a fitbit (which I adore). My goal for January is 10,000 steps EACH day. I typically get about 12k 6 days a week, and about 8k 1 day a week. I want to get at least 10k each day. My steps are partly from walking, (an hour every other day) and partly from running (30-40 minutes every other day), with 1 rest day. I want to get 10k on that day as well.

I am still working on getting exercise to be a regular part of my life, but at least I got on the right track in December.

I do yoga regularly (average 3x/week) and have been going through the Couch to 5K program again, so I am walk/jogging ("wogging" :)) 3x/week as well. I would like to resume walking more... and someday I'd like to begin an actual strength-training program, one that works well with yoga.

I guess my goal is to have every day with *some* kind of exercise.

UPDATE: Well, I certainly missed my goal of EVERY day... fell off the yoga wagon for a bit because honestly I hate doing yoga when I feel really fat - I can't do certain things because of a huge belly roll and my clothes ride up and dig in uncomfortably... boo hoo, poor me. But I AM successfully making my way through the Couch to 5K program.

Jan 1 - nothing (haha already missed my goal)
Jan 2 - Couch to 5K Week5Day2, 1 hour yoga.
Jan 3 - one small freakin' walk - such small goals I have :p
[Jan 4 - 12 too much work, not enough planning to follow through on exercise BOO]
Jan 13 - Couch to 5K Week5Day2 AGAIN (afraid to move ahead after a week+ lapse)
Jan 17 - Couch to 5K 8' run + 10' run (18 minutes running/~30 minutes total)
Jan 20 - Couch to 5K 10' run + 8' run (18 minutes running/~30 minutes total)
Jan 22 - Couch to 5K 10' run + 10' run (20 minutes running/~30 minutes total)
Jan 24 - Couch to 5K 15' run + 5' run (20 minutes running/~30 minutes total)
Jan 27 - Couch to 5K 20' run without stopping WOO HOO
Jan 28 - Yoga class, 1 hour
Jan 29 - Couch to 5K 20' run without stopping + 1'
Jan 31 - Couch to 5K 22' run without stopping

VERDICT for JANUARY: Meh, could have been better
Missed a LOT of yoga classes - BUT kept up with C25K so hallelujah for that!
:encore:
