Default Exercise 250 hours in 2012: February hours (aprox. 20 hours)

Welcome all... People are always welcome to join. If you join In February, you can jump in for the whole 250 hours (making up approximately 21 hours) or you can join us now to do 230 hours from now until the remainder of the year.

If you count minutes, that is 150000 minutes for 250 hours, or 13750 minutes from February 1st until the rest of the year for approx. 230 hours.

You decide what exercise you want to do. There is no passing judgement on what people consider exercise as movement is movement in my book!

Good luck and welcome leap year February!

I somehow managed to get my hours for January despite the slow start. Doing a bike ride today and the double express class of strength training and step. I love that combo!

This morning I did a Power Aerobics class. It should have been for 60 mins, but the instructor turned up late and only gave us 48 mins. I made up the other 12 though...

Summary

Power Aerobics - 48 mins
Stairmaster - 5 mins
Elliptical - 7 mins

Total - 60 mins

I really should make 250 hours of exercise my goal. I've been seeing the thread all throughout January. I think I can talk myself into exercising in *fun* ways more easily! I should have a few hours from January to start, I just need to count them up.

So I'm taking the plunge. I *will* exercise more regularly and get 250 hours in this year!

You are much stronger willed than I am. I would have skipped the 12 minutes and promised to do something more later and probably wouldn't manage to do it. Good for you!

I'm going to jump in for at least February. I should try to get 250 hours in for the year though.

Today I did 1 hr of weight training and 10 mins on the eliptical (warm up). I'm walking a 1/2 marathon on Sunday so that will be a good 3+ hrs.

Yay! So glad to see new people joining in! It's never to late to start on healthier habits. I like the 250 hours/15000 minutes, because it seems moderate and achievable.

That equals out to be. Exercising 5 days a week for 50 weeks of the year, so there is wiggle room for around holidays, if you get sick, vacation, etc. that is what we should strive for for life, not even just for weight loss.

So, if you all new folks want to shoot for the whole 250 hours, go for it, but don't burn out trying to get there either... It's much better to do some consistently than a lot here and there inconsistently.

Ok.... Off to go walk to my son's school for volunteering... That 15 minutes and one mile right there - squeezing in exercise in normal, every day life. Gorgeous day here in Maryland.

OK. 20 hours, 1,200 minutes...I'm in for the whole year; focusing on the 20 hours in Feb. I'm behind for the year, but that may catch up naturally as I get more and more fit. And I'll count it as minutes instead of hours to encourage me to start doing little bits throughout the day and not only think of it as an 'everything or nothing' thing.

Hi all!

I'm adding 90 minutes to my running total today, 60 minutes of pump and 30 minutes walking with my friend and her baby, I even offered to push the pram up the hills, that wouldn't have happened previously!

1290 minutes done to date

Keep moving everyone

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!

I'd like to try and join this . I think I'd like to just try the 20 hours in February first though cos if I plan too much at once I get disheartened at how much I have to go and give up.
