Thumbs up April Exercise Challenge

It's spring! An excellent time to sprout new exercise goals. On this thread, we set exercise goals for the month and track them together. See our sister thread, April Weight Loss Challenge for tracking the non-exercise goals that lead to weight loss.

I'll post a list of our goals as we set them at the beginning of the month. When you meet a goal, it gets turned red in our list.

Want some ideas for goals to set? Take a look at what we did in the March Exercise Challenge!

I'm back after a couple of weeks rest following my accident. Three cracked ribs which will take six weeks to heal but I've been gradually re adding activities. Cardio is ok but resistance is a problem. Anyway, I'm gona try for 1200 this month and see how I get on!

I added up my exercise minutes from last month, and I was at 1000. So, my goal for April will be 1200 minutes. I also really am going to get new shoes and the arm strap for my iphone this month, I swear!

I lost track of my exercise last month, so my first goal this month is to track it! I'm also going to set a time related goal of 1000 mins this month, see how easy/hard that is to achieve and then I can make my May goal more challenging/realistic. A lot going on this month, so I don't want to set a challenge too high.

1) Log exercise for the whole month on here
2) 1000 minutes

Taking a break from the scale, but BACK WITH A BANG! When I'm back in the UK in April 2013 I hope to be lower than 168, which is from July 2012ish and the lowest I got before some regaining. Until then, it's all about good food and exercise and no obsessing over numbers!

My goals are simple:
1. Do C25K with my son (he wants to start running with me, so I agreed to train him) 3 days/wk
2. Add some kind of strength activity 1 day/wk

April 1 - 55 minutes on the treadmill

Total: 55/1200 minutes

I finally bought the arm band for my iphone! Edit: And I'm going to return it, lol. I don't like the way it makes my arm fat look! And it will get in the way when I'm doing certain exercises (not sure why I didn't think of that before). I'll have to find a different solution.

April 1st and 2nd - 0 minutes. Not good enough, but at least I'm tracking it! Feeling poo with TOM and (hopefully not!) a cold brewing, HAVE to get onto it tomorrow.

0/1000

takingcontrol: I got a big fat 0 for April 1, too. Oh well, we have a whole month to make up for it! Time to get moving.

The * means I did a different workout than the previous day
4/1: 0*
