Thumbs up April Exercise Challenge

It's starting to look like spring where I live -- a great time for ramping up our exercise goals!

This is our monthly exercise challenge thread. All are 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: April Weight Loss Challenge.

Tabbycat here.

I'm tied up evenings for a full week doing a musical, and I am signed up for two 5K races in April, so I am going to shorten this month's goal. My goal in April is to run 24 miles.

My goal is pathetic compared to all of you, but as of right now I don't formally exercise at all. I want to start slow and steady, trying to build good and regular habits.

My goal is to exercise three times a week, a total of 60 minutes per week. By the end of April I want to have 250 minutes of exercise under my belt.

I can do this!

@Crow: I will be having a small goal It's better to start slow!

My objective is also small, but I plan to increase it for next month. As of this month (after 4 months or so of inactivity), I want to exercise twice a week, 60 minutes each time, reaching 480 minutes by the end of April. I will be trying to go for three times a week every time I can, though.

Can I join in? Am in week 31 of exercising, lost the weight without exercise, and am maintaining with exercise. My goal is 3 times per week for an hour each time. When I'm on vacation I like to exercise every day, but can't manage it once back at work.

Back again after a looong plateau and scale is starting drop again so I need the motivation to continue my journey. I have never stuck very long to exercise so I will go for doing a exercise video 3 times a week.

Apr 01 - Extreme Makeover "The Workout"
Let's add 45 mins of fast housework before work and before family arrives on Wednesday. Wheww!!
That was harder than the workout DVD lol

So busy running with family. No time with family here, but am wearing slacks that were tight and now they are loose.
