I didn't do horribly in April, considering I was waylaid by a knee issue and the flu and distracted by spring break. But I want to do better this month.

My goals for May are to complete weeks 4-7 of C25k and work out 22 out of 31 days.

I'm going to join the 1500 min club, plus do arms 3 x a week, don't want to lose my teeny muscles :lol:

1500 mins + arms 3x/week

Thanks Joy, this challenge really makes me focus on getting in my exercise on those days I feel like skipping!

:sunny:

berryblondeboys 04-30-2014 12:33 PM

Hmm.... maybe if I hold myself accountable to someone other than myself, maybe I'll get my butt moving more. This cold, wet spring has been hurting me in the exercise department!

Goal for May is just to do something EVERY day - no matter how big or small - just to promise to do SOMETHING! Unlike today where I'm acting like a slug! I will keep track with my body media fit. Steps and activity minutes. Aiming for minimum 8000 and 45 minutes.


Steps. Active movement time.
1. 8,303, 1:01
2. 16,403, 2:07
3. 8,064, 0:45 (It didn't count my 1.5 hours of yard debris pickup as exercise - I beg to differ!)
4. 8,107, 0:43 (only because I promised to do something every day did I actually go out and take a walk after being gone most of the day).
5. 10,167, 1:19 (mowing super tall grass)
6. 3,758, 0:14 (So much for doing something every day. I had a lot of online work to do)
7. 8,025, 0:57 (made myself take a walk in the evening!)
8. 5,688, 0:18 (errands all day, but no time for a walk! Grrr!)
9. 7,884, 0:40 (a short walk and errands)
10. 3,436, 0:00 ( was standing ALL day for an art project, but not walking).
11. 10,104, 1:09 ( teaching and a walk)
12. 4,090, 0:19 (laundry doesn't make you take many steps!)
13. 10,560, 1:14
14. 5,506, 0:35 (was on a school field trip with the kids - baseball game. LOTS of sitting)
15. 5,696, 0:30 (errands)
16. 6,184, 0:39 (short walk and housework)
17. 6,928, 0:43 (walk)
18. 4,338, 0:19 (nothing)
19. 8,916, 0:59 (walk)
20. 10,840, 0:43 (gardening for over 7 hours, but gizmo didn't count much of it)
21.
22.
23.
24.
25.
26.
27.
28.
29.
30.
31.

I will just update this first post daily, not tack on a new post daily - unless I do something I'm especially proud of!
