Count me in
I just want to be accountable for some form of exercising at least 3 times a week.

March 1~4 hours of walking, raking, digging,amending soil and stooping.
(this should count for something)

Default Ooh - me too!

Time to 'fess up to the goose-eggs...or "rest days" as us runners like to call them!

3/1 (Mon): "rest day"
3/2: 60 minutes strength training (weights/machines/abs) + 60 minutes elliptical
3/3: 35 min running + 90 minutes yoga
3/4: 45 min step video + 45 min toning and abs + 90 min volleyball
3/5: none
3/6: 30 minutes aerobic + tone DVD + 15 minutes arms/legs/abs
3/7: 95 minutes running
3/8 (Mon): 40 minutes Power Yoga + 20 minutes abs
3/9: 60 minutes strength training + 50 minutes running
3/10: 60 minutes of fumfering through a new step DVD
3/11: 40 minutes of step DVD from yesterday (I think I get most of it!) + 60 minutes volleyball
3/12: 45 minute run + 20 minutes Abs + 50 minutes step - I got it!
3/13: 85 minute run + 20 minutes Abs
3/14: "resting"
3/15 (Mon): 50 minute run + 60 minute step/tone class
3/16: 60 minutes strength training + 50 minutes running
3/17: 50 minute step DVD + 45 minute kickbox DVD
3/18: 60 minute step DVD + 25 minute weights + abs + 80 minutes volleyball
3/19: 60 minutes running
3/20: 45 minutes yoga DVD
3/21 (my birthday!) 60 minutes running - came in 3rd in my age group in a 10K!
3/22 (Mon): 50 minutes step DVD
3/23: 60 minutes strength training + 50 minutes running
3/24: 60 minutes running + 45 minute yoga DVD
3/25: 50 minutes strength training + 90 minutes volleyball
3/26: 30 minutes running
3/27: 90 minutes running
3/28: 60 minutes walking
3/29 (Mon): 60 minutes running
3/30: 60 minutes training + 15 minutes running sprints + 30 minutes bike
3/31: 60 minutes running + 90 minutes yoga

Good idea!: March total (if I added correctly) = 2615 minutes

This is really helping me fight that urge to skip the workout...and I highly recommend getting workout videos or DVDs - I find that when I just can't face the trek to the gym or a run in the cold - I'm almost always able to pop one in and get going.
