Default Exercise 250 hours in 2012 or 21 hours in May - Come on in!

Welcome all... People are always welcome to join. If you join in May, you can jump in for the remaining 167 hours of 2012 or you can join us now for just the month of May which would be about 21 hours.

You can count in hours or minutes - whatever you prefer. 21 hours is 1260 minutes for May. 188 hours is 10,020 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 May!

Hey all - I still need to finish up my total hours for April, but I was a bit short, but not so short as to not be able to catch up.

Shoulder injury seems to be getting better and better. I'm tring bodypump tonight to 'see'. And body step.

Okay, I think I'll jump into May, not sure how long I can carry this on, but if May is a success, then I'll definitely keep going.

5/1: .75 hour walk
5/2: .75 hour walk

So far 1.5 hours

Total for May - 90 mins

I probably won't be getting any training in today and tomorrow due to work demands.

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!

Here's my May so far:
5/1: 1 hr Pilates
5/2: 1 hr Zumba, 1 hr yoga
5/6: 3 hrs of mall walking
5/7: 1 hr Zumba - this class was different than the first - more of a boot-camp feel with boxing moves and big off-the ground jumps. I just kept up the best I could. Major butt kick
