Default The South Beach February Take Care of Your Heart Exercise Challenge

We all know that exercise is good for our hearts. There's nothing like a little cardio to get
the heart pumping. It's also great for our overall sense of well-being, something many of us up
here in the northern areas can use a boost with through the long, gray winter days.



It's only 28 days, what's your goal this month? Whether you are starting out with 10 minutes
a day or are a fitness fan set a goal and join us in the monthly challenge. It's great to have exercise
buddies, supporting one another and being accountable. If you are a Beacher join us this month!

My goal is to keep up with C25K and my pushups and kettlebell exercises. I'd like to be sure I get in three sets of each during each week.

Hopefully I'll be over my cold by the time February gets here!

I intend to stick to my three times a week sessions at the gym except for a week I'll be away. Even then, I'll be doing a lot of walking.

My goal is to workout 3x a week. Currently I'm doing none, so I figure this is a good, modest place to start. If I get the first two weeks in, I'd also like to try C25K, but I wanna get in a habit first.

This is me too. I downloaded the C25K app for my iphone and it was great. I did one run and nearly died! (I blamed the stroller for the extra exertion. HA.)

My goal is 90 minutes/week. Starting from zero, this is big for me.

I remember when I used to do 90 minutes per day!

This is great. I love fresh starts to new months. I just finished week one of P1 and am feeling terrific...and not as low-energy as I did years go while on P1 (must be the beans!).

I used to run marathons and half marathons but it's been months since I've done any real exercise and a YEAR probably, if you can believe it, since I've been in any sort of regular exercising routine. I say "real" exercise because of course i still walk places but I don't count that since I don't sweat from it.

For the month of February my goal is to do at least 60 min/week of strength-training-type exercise, or about 10 min most days, even if it's just bedtime yoga, or an at-home strength-training routine. In addition to that, I want to make it to Zumba and/or spin classes at least 2x a week. This seems pretty reasonable to me, moving from the bottom rung of NO exercise.


Goal: 240 minutes ST; 8 hours of fitness classes (cardio)
Month so far: 80/240 ST; 3.75/8 cardio

1- 10 min morning wake-up yoga; 10 min uphill brisk walk
2
3
4 - 1 hour Zumba class
5

6 - 20 min ST - Sparkpeople 28-day bootcamp videos, days 2 & 3 (lower & upper body 10 min each)
7
8
9 - 1/2 hour Zumba cardio (i got the DVDs so can do it at home now! yay)
10
11 - 1/2 hour Zumba cardio
12 - 1 hour Zumba cardio; 30 min ST (wooo!)

13
14 - 20 min ST video
15
16 - 45 min Zumba cardio
17
18
19

20
21
22
23
24
25
26

27
28

Edit/update: Wow, I totally failed at this month. Partly because I went out of town and then got the flu and have been sick for the last week. Can we please start the March thread soon??

Well, being one of the individuals with a heart problem, I just can't pass on this challenge so here I go again. Last November I committed to a goal of 600 minutes, then in December I increased that to 800 and in January I again increased my goal to 1,000 minutes and have met each one even though when I started I could only walk for about ten minutes max. This month I don't think I'm ready for another increase so will keep my goal at 1,000. Good luck to us all in meeting this month's goal!

Goal = 1,000 minutes
Actual = 262 minutes

1 = 45 A new challenge, a new day and a new start! The gun has sounded so let's go!
2 thru 17 - couldn't because of health problem
18 = 25 It feels good to be back! Gonna take a while to get back to where I was though.
19 = 37
20 = took the day off to rest
21 = 35
22 = 40
23 = 40
24 = 40
