Default Exercise 250 hours in 2012 or 21 hours in April - no April's Fools!

Welcome all... People are always welcome to join. If you join In April, you can jump in for the remaining 188 hours of 2012 or you can join us now for just the month of April which would be about 21 hours.

You can count in hours or minutes - whatever you prefer. 21 hours is 1260 minutes for April. 188 hours is 11,280 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 April!

Hello,
My name is Jan. I need motivation. I'm developing arthritis in my hips and so I need to get off a good 20 lbs and strengthen. Tired of my grown children teasing me about how I "USED'" to be hot! They are going to eat those words!

Thanks for the challenge once again Melissa, I love having it here to keep me on my toes!

Welcome chocolots

I'm in again 1260 minutes for April (nearly had a heart attack when I saw your 1860 suggestion Melissa, think there's a typo ) After getting back on track last month and catching up for not doing all of my minutes in Jan and Feb I'm hoping not having to play catch up will make this easier this month!

I'm hoping this month it'll be easier to get in my minutes too because I'm in training for my first 5Km at the end of May, eeeeekkkkk! I've NEVER been a distance runner, but I hope I can make myself one!

Good luck everyone

April 1st - 45 minute spinning class
April 2nd - 60 minute Pump class

105/1260 = 1155 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!

1. 75 minutes
2. 100 minutes

When the kids (teens) go to bed I am planning to put the DVRd Dancing with the Stars on and do a little more walking, marching, dancing, whatever.

* ETA minutes from DWTS. That show has a lot of fluff!! I FF and watched the dances and maybe 2 or 3 of the judges comments. 40 minutes instead of 2 hours. Now, I am watching the fluff while surfing.

April 1st - 45 minute spinning class
April 2nd - 60 minute Pump class
April 3rd - 30 minutes c25k w4d1 + 15 mins mega brisk walking in the rain

150/1260 = 1110 to go

Maybe I should try for 1860 and then I can pretty much take next month off?!?!

Hoping the snow doesn't settle tonight and then I can do some more jogging in the park tomorrow, to mix it up from my c25k road route. But, after doing my scheduled run in the rain this morning, there is no way I'm doing my extras in the snow, not my idea of fun! It's weather like this that makes me wish I wasn't so anti treadmill! But, at the end of the day, it could well be blowing a gale on race day, so it's all good practise!
