Thumbs up January Exercise Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone!

This is our monthly exercise challenge thread. Use it throughout 2013 to see a real difference in your fitness. All our welcome, whether your goal is to walk ten minutes a day or train for a marathon.

State your goal and track it throughout the month with a supportive group encouraging each other to meet our goals. We'll compile our exercise goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

For weight loss goals, see our sister thread: January Weightloss Challenge
