Thumbs up November Exercise Challenge

Everyone is welcome to post fitness and exercise goals for November here and then track them through the month. Track your workouts, your minutes, the times you take the steps instead of the elevators, anything that gets you moving more whether the goal is big or small.

We have a sister thread November Weight Loss Challenge for weight loss goals. Join in one thread or both! We'd love to have you with us.

2feelbetter You can list minutes, miles, steps, episondes, exercise programs whatever your goal is then you can keep track of your progess here. It is really a helpful tool. If you want some other ideas of goals, you could look back at the october or september exercise thread. Good luck to you

*My goals are gonna be 1000 minutes of Intentional exercise, OMG that is a lot more than I have been getting lateley, So here goes! Good luck to everyone!

I'm writing a novel this month (NaNoWriMo) so I'm taking my exercise goal down a notch to something I'm sure that I will really do: 1350 minutes for November.

Ok, here goes. I want to do 30 minutes/day, 5 days per week, which I think equals a goal of 600 minutes for the month. Doesn't sound like much, but is way more than what I'm getting now
