Default March Exercise Challenge

Already the time has come to start a new exercise challenge!!! I hope to see everyone from the February Exercise challenge as well as some new faces. All you need to do is set an exercise goal for the month, post it, then keep coming back here to keep yourself accountable!!!

For myself I feel that I can't control how fast my body drops the weight, but I can control how much exercise I can do.

To keep yourself accountable you can either hit the edit button and fill in your exercise for the day, or just add to the thread.

Good luck everyone!!!

LaBonita - Capoeira is pronounced: “KAH-POO-AIR-AH” and is an Afro-Brazilian martial art, which has dance-like movements and is known by some as the origin of breakdancing due to the floor movements. Unlike other martial arts, there is a lot more culture that is still intact… the commands given are still in Brazilian-Portuguese and there is a musical background included in the art form as well… songs are sung in Brazilian-Portuguese while playing berimbau (a bow like one-stringed instrument hit with a stick aka baquetta, and it changes pitch by placing a stone/coin aka dobrao on or taking it away from the string). Other accompanying instruments include atabaque (similar to a conga drum) and pandero (tambourine). The majority of songs they sing are a verse - chorus - verse - chorus that continues and keeps the energy up while people play one-on-one in the center of the roda (said: HO-DAH) which is a circle including musicians, singers and other players. The game is played one-on-one and people can buy in to play with one of the current players.
The art form consists of offensive and defensive movements consisting of acrobatics, kicks and floor movements. The floor movements use a great deal of upper body strength and the kicks are trained so you can respond quickly.
The berimbau (the instrument mentioned above) is said to be the soul of capoeira… it sets the tone for what kind of game will be played and how fast or slow the capoeiristas play.
You can find some clips on utube.com which I find shows a vast spread of the art form. You will see some groups emphasize the floor movements more than others but that’s the beauty of it. I hope I was able to help shed some light on what it is…

Hi ladies I look forward to this new month. I lost 9 lbs. last month and went a pant size down! So I am ready, I found myself pushing a lot last month to complete my goals but it was well worth it and it really helped me mentally!

My plan for this month, will be basically the same as last month except that I will add 60 minutes of toning per week ( some stretching included in time for flexiblility). I will also incorporate at least 2 more aerobic sessions per month (ankle withstanding aerobics). My shedule will look as follows:

goal 1 - walking ( 4x per week at 40 min. OR a min. of 160 min. per week)
goal 2 - aerobics (10x this month, approx. 30 min. sessions)
goal 3 - upper body s.t (3x per week, approx 12-15 min)
goal 4 - toning and stretching (2x per week, approx. 30 minute sessions)

Last monts minutes equated to 1,065 and with this months current additions, I will be adding approx. 300 minutes. Good luck everyone let's get ready for nice weather! p.s- I need to break up my workouts by the week at this point.

3/1 40 minutes walk
3/2 not feeling well
3/3 30 minutes, walk
15 min. (upper bod toning)
3/4 30 min. (aerobics)
3/5
3/6
3/7

3/8
3/9
