This is my first fitness challenge I've ever done. I figure, why not!
I'm still new to dieting and exercising so I'm going to keep my goal low and attainable. Hopefully I can exceed that goal!
My goal is to walk/jog 30 minutes every other day, which is 465 minutes by the end of the month.
Easy, I know...


Goal in minutes: 465
Current: 50

May 1: 50 min. walk

May 15: 43min
May 16: ---
May 17: ---
May 18: ---

May 20: 43min. if moving and packing boxes counts then ive been working out everyday. i cant wait for this move to be over..
May 21: packed the truck. i have no idea.
May 22: started driving. we landed somewhere in the south of Illinois.
May 23: ended in texarkana texas. yee haw!
May 24: dallas. sleep.
May 25: packed my stuff. slept again.
May 26: el paso for the night. this is the never-ending drive
May 27: phoenix. finally.
May 28: move in. what a riot.
May 29: started unpacking. thats even more of a riot..
May 30: new apartment, new state, new home, new everything. i got in 35mins on the elliptical machine.
