Default Exercise 250 hours in 2012 OR approx 21 hours in March!

Welcome all... People are always welcome to join. If you join In March, you can jump in for the remaining 210 hours of 2012 that remain or you can join us now for just the month of March which would be about 21 hours.

You can count in hours or minutes - whatever you prefer. 21 hours is 1860 minutes for March. 210 hours is 12600 minutes for what remains for the rest of the year.

If you add that up, exercising 250 hours for the year works out to exercising 5 hours a week for 50 weeks of the year. Not too much, but not too little either.

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 to March!

Well, I am on track. How I don't know as I feel I haven't been doing as much as I should. I guess it's because last year I was doing more than what I am doing now so that it feels like what I'm doing now is not enough.

March 1 - nothing
March 2 - one hour of BodyStep

Whooop, glad this challenge is still here to keep me going

Melissa, you're doing really well, and keeping very active, don't feel bad for not doing enough!

1460 is my target for March to keep me on track for the year, which I'm following on my ticker.

So far this month

March 1st - 45 min spin
March 2nd - 45 min hydro jog
March 3rd - 60 min Body Pump

150/1460 = 1310 to go!

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!

Oops! 90 hrs total, not 100 just yet.

Yeah my 2 hrs on the treadmill (or usually 3 on the wii fit) keep me sane. LOL

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good day. I'm watching Joel Fuhrman on channel 13 here. His ETL program is excellent, but a big change from the SAD. I keep going on and off it . . .

March 1: walking
March 2: yoga
March 3: walking
March 4: nothing - I'm tired today.

54 hours in feb, 3 till yesterday, 2 today for a total of 59 hrs so far!!!
In addition to this, I took up a challenge to commit to doing pushups vryday. I found another thread somewhere on this site for creative ways to get motivated! So, I put up(copied from this site!) on my status on fb that I will do 5 pushups for each like every day for a week!! 22 people liked it (friends find happiness in your misery!!)and I did 120 pushups each day... And to begin with... I hated doing even a single pushup!!
At least this got me into a routine!! Good luck to all for march!!
