Default Red Team Week #1 Challenge

Pick an amount of minutes you want to be active this week - for instance 30 minutes a day of cardio times 5 days a week = 150 minutes of activity. Let's set a goal that we all think we can attain with our busy schedules. You get 1 point for every minute you go OVER you activity minutes goal. So if you pick 150 minutes and do 200 minutes then you get 50 points!

Challenge starts Monday the 5th and goes through Sunday the 11th. Keep track of your minutes on this thread, just edit you original post so I don't have to go through a million pages

Don't be a "Vicky" and pick a low number to start out with

Ha!

I'm going to work out for 300 minutes this week (updated my goal on 1/5).

1/5 - 70 minutes (cardio in the gym)
1/6 - 0 minutes
1/7 - 40 minutes (BL workouts)
1/8 - 60 minutes (40 cardio, 20 weights in gym)
1/9 - 20 minutes (walking)
1/10 - 40 minutes (cardio in gym)
1/11 - 30 minutes (walking)

270/300 minutes

Well, I should have stuck with 250 instead of changing my goal the next day to 300

I am choosing to be active 30 minutes a day 7 days out of the next week. So I am aiming for 210 minutes. *edit* changed my weekly total to 7 days instead of 6!

230/210 minutes

1/5 Did 40 minutes on the TM
1/6 Did 30 minutes on the TM, then swam 1/2 mile in 15 mins - 45 min total
1/7 35 minutes in the house (jogging and walking) 15 minutes weights - 45 min total
1/8 35 minutes on the track, 20 minute swim - 55 mins total
1/9 35 minutes on the TM, 10 mins abs - 45 total

I am shooting for four days at 30 minutes a day. I would love to go for more, but I have to be careful as I am still healing an injury.

165/120

1/5 ~~ 35 minutes hard hitting low impact cardio with weights.

1/6 ~~ 40 minutes hard hitting low impact cardio with weights.

1/7 ~~ 45 minutes walking.

1/10 ~~ 45 minutes cardio.

45 minutes over.


Okay... I know it looks as if I pulled a Vicky. But I really didn't. I was able to go a little longer than I thought I was going to be able to. If we do this challenge again, next week I think that I can shoot for a higher number.
************************************************** *****
************************************************** *****
************************************************** *****

Week Two:

Goal: 180 minutes.

90/180

1/12 ~~ 40 minutes cardio.

1/14 ~~ 50 minutes cardio.

S/C/G: 172/165

Height: 5'2

I had no idea what to pick so I just averaged the first 6 people's amounts - It was exactly 175.

Jan 5 - 0
Jan 6 - 25 mins of DDR (250 cal)
Jan 7 - 0
Jan 8 - 60 mins on Treadmill (390 cal)
Jan 9 - 60 mins on recumbent bike (420 cal)
Jan 10 - 60 mins on Treadmill (410 cal)
Jan 11 - 30 mins of DDR (400 cal)

235/175 (+60 mins)

I'm sure I could do more but then again, I've worked out approximately 45 minutes in the last two weeks! So 175 in a week will probably be a feat.

Update 1: Ugh, my energy and willpower is in the negative numbers! My grand idea to hit the gym 20-30 minutes a day + 30 Day Shred has apparently still not taken off after 2 days. I'm working half-days (I'm a teacher) but instead of being the assistant, I'm now the main teacher and my workload has like, quadrupled. My energy is sapped. I need to push myself with exercise.

Update 2: Ah, I see so many people are raising their numbers! My goal is to go to the gym an hour Friday & Saturday plus do some exercise on Sunday (gym closed). I'm not the best at following goals but I'll be thrilled if my motivated side beats out my lazy side.

Update 3: Wow, I can't believe some of you are over 300 minutes already! No wonder it takes me four months to lose 5 lbs!

Update 4: I can see we are pushing ourselves hard! Maybe we could do it BL-style and have the same challenge next week and see who can improve by the most?

Put me down for 180 (6 days x 30 minutes). Is it cheating that it's already the 5th today, and I did a 66 minute jog/walk this morning?

Actually I think I just answered my own question. Make it 200 then - I'm up for the challenge!

5/1 - 66 minutes.
6/1 - None - worked a 12 hour shift.
7/1 - 52 minutes.
8/1 - None - day between two 12 hour night shifts. Sleeping!
9/1 - 61 minutes.
10/1 -
11/1 -

179/200 minutes
