Finally feeling well enough to attempt w5d3, which is supposed to be a 2-mile run. Unfortunately I had to take a break in the middle to feed a hungry baby, but I ran more as soon as I finished, so I ended up running around 2.5 miles, just in two parts. I'm gonna count it as complete.

4/01: c25k w5d1 - 20m walk, (6m run, 3m walk) x 3, 20m walk
4/02: zumba
4/03: c25k w5d2 - 20m walk, (9m run, 5m walk) x 2, 20m walk
4/04: more zumba
4/05: nothing, I'm sick
4/06: see above
4/07: see above
4/08: c25k w5d3 sort of - 1/4 mile walk, 1 1/2 mile run, breastfeeding break, 1 mile run, ~20 minutes walk

I'm going to start slow this month so I can actually reach a fitness goal and then I'll reevaluate next month.

April goal: 600 minutes of exercise

April 9th: Chalean Extreme: Week 2, Burn Circuit 1- 30 minutes 30/600
April 16th: 30 minutes yoga. 60/600 It's finals week for my first semester in grad school, between tests and papers it's been hard to find time to work out but, I'm still trying!

Hello! I hope you don't mind joining you in the middle of the challenge. I just finished the Forming new habits in 21 days thread and now I'll continue it here - a little less strict.
My april goal is to excercise 25 out of 30 days. So far I used one pause day, so it's more like 17 out of 21 days now. For excercise to count it has to last at least 20 minutes.

1. 20min cycling
2. 20min cycling
3. 20min cycling, 30min running
4. Pause day
5. 30min running (+walking while shopping)
6. 30min walking
7. 60min cycling
8. 30min cycling
9. 20min cycling

April 7: 30 Day Shred Level 1
April 8: OFF
April 9: OFF
April 10:NROL Stage 1 workout A with cardio interval

Katie816 and RVAscreenwriter: I'm reading a new book called The Diet Fix by Yoni Freedhoff and he advocates exactly what you're doing -- starting small and re-evaluating periodically to see if you want to bump it up a bit. That's how I did it.

1: 45 walk; 45/1500
2: 30 walk, 20 abs & stretch; 95/1500
3: 35 legs & stretch; 130/1500
4: 30 walk, 20 arms & stretch; 180/1500
5: 75 walk; 255/1500
6: 50 yardwork; 305/1500
7: 30 walk, 20 stretch; 355/1500

8: 30 walk; 385/1500
9: 30 walk, 20 abs & stretch; 435/1500
