Hmmm...so to do this challenge, we need to list what we are going to do or what we have done? I feel like a total slacker in this group...you guys work out a lot! Wow! :bravo:

My current goal is to do 20 mins of elliptical machine and ten minutes of weights on May 7, 10, 12, and 14, etc. (every M-W-F).

I feel like a slacker! I just started the diet and everything yesterday though, so not too bad. I plan on doing the elliptical for 30 minutes tomorrow, maybe hit up the racquetball courts! (i still don't know how to play the game, but it's fun to hit the ball around!)

Ugh, I would fail this months challenge due to finals coming up. SO instead I will live vicariously through whomever is doing the most exercise :lol:

I have a lot of catching up to do in the excersing department but I have been doing a lot of renovations of my house lately and I feel like that is a lot of bending and stretching and going up and down the stairs. Finally done this weekend. New shed in back, new kitchen floor, new patio set (had to be assembled), painted daughters bedroom. Took all furniture out, new carpeting, put all furniture back, hand new shades. The mess will be done this weekend and now for the garden. Bending and stretching again. I think I meet your challenge.
