Smile March Exercise Challenge.

Okay here's the drill. Calculate the number of minutes that you will exercise for the full month of March, post them here, then each day or week you take your remaining balance, subtract the minutes that you exercised and post your new balance. (ex 210-30=180 next day start with 180-30=150) Simple but it's a great tool for keeping us on track. All are welcome, so come on and give it a try.


To all of our gals that stayed with it the entire month of February! Even if the total minutes weren't met we are still winners because we didn't give up. Sometimes things happen and we fall, but just dust yourself off and jump right back in. No one here will ever be disappointed in you, because this is a challenge for you by you.

My pledge is 910 minutes for March. 31 days, less five Mondays (my day off) times 35 minutes per day, equals 910 total.

OK Semo I am so shamed by your amazing consistancy that I got my butt to the gym today. I will pledge 1480 for the month for me.

3 days at 60 minutes of weights and cardio and 3 days of cardio only. Sunday off. Gotta start somewhere.

3/1: 1480-60=1420 to go

P.S. while I was being a slug I managed not to gain and not to lose.

DNW: I knew you would be back when you were ready!

Didn't exercise Saturday, because I didn't feel well, so I'll use that as my day off. Sunday, March 2nd 40 min

910 - 40 = 870

Alright Miss KitKat, you just stay ahead of me then. You go girl!

Im just starting out with all this excercise stuff..plus i have a job and school to interfere with my weight loss goals.. so Im going to say my number for March is 680, I worked out 30 minutes today so my number now is 650.

btw this is a very clever idea

I finished February with 830 minutes so I'm going to try (again) for 1000 in March. March is a bit longer so I should be able to do it.

Sat, Mar 1 - 45 min brisk walk
Sun, Mar 2 - 60 min. aerobics

1000 - 105 = 895

Good Monday Morning to All!

Welcome Kitty, glad that you are joining us. I think that most of us work full time but you have the added stress of going to school. Would that be college or high school? At any rate glad that you are here.

Monday, March 3rd

870 - 40 = 830

Thank you

I work in a bakery. blah. yeah high school, college next year though, which will just make it that much harder, im sure
its good if i create good habits while i still can though.

well i walked on the treadmill 20 minutes, ran 10 so thats another 30 down, so 620 to go.

does anyone know if working out at night had bad side effects? my mother said I shouldnt do it, but was very vague about the whole thing. any ideas?

*shrug*

Wednesday, March 5th

790-40=750

KitKat, I made it to day 30 on the Power90!

Kitty, I'm no expert but I don't know why you wouldn't be able to exercise at night unless you are unable to go to sleep afterwards. Just allow yourself some down time before going to bed and I think you will be find.

Hello everyone!
It is already the 7th of March, so I will set an exercise goal for the rest of the month, starting today:
850 minutes is my goal for the rest of the month...about 35 minutes a day-my exercise varies per day, because I have an hour dance class each week, my strength training days average about 45 minutes, and my cardio or yoga days last about 30 minutes...hopefully this will average them out and I will meet goal!
