300+ March Madness Exercise Thread

to the March exercise thread! We're making exercise a habit, giving ourselves some accountability, and getting healthier in the process!

In this thread, we track the number of MINUTES we exercise for the month -- whether it's walking or swimming or sweaty housework! Most of us set goals for ourselves (I personally will not exercise much without a goal). If you are a goal-setter, early in the month set your own goal! If you're just getting started, feel free to start with a smaller number of minutes (I did!), maybe just a few hundred. It seems easier for many of us to build on the habit rather than meet a very high goal right away. However, you can also just jump right in without a goal, and you can join us anytime in the month!

In 2007 the 300+ club exercised 205,352 minutes. Let’s break that record!

To keep track, just add your minutes to the existing group’s minutes. If you’re new, look at what other people are doing – it’s pretty easy to figure out! To help everyone keep things straight, please note the OLD minutes and the number of NEW minutes you are adding, such as
Group total ~ 500 + 50 = 550 minutes

We've made a great start and I'd love to see us get close to 20K minutes for March!!! What do you say chicks and roosters??

Minutes so far:
19,474 January
12,537 February

32,011 min thru Feb

It's a short month, and I forgot to get this thread started!

I'm shooting for 1100 min this month. Hubby and I are actually BOTH working on the same goal.

Let's see if we can turn it up as the weather warms!

March Madness is right!! I got close to 2000 but I still haven't been able to get to it in one month, so my goal for March is 2000!! Yes!!!

I'm going to try and aim for 1800 minutes this month! I aimed to do 1200 minutes of exercise for February but I went way past the goal so 1800 seems a bit sensible to fit into my busy lifestyle!

Wow...March already!?!!? I just posted on the Feb thread and then realized I was in the wrong month. I'm not setting a minute goal for this month, but I will do something every single day! Last month I put in 35 hours! :D

Today was 60 minutes - elliptical/abs/stretching.

Personal Total: 60

Group Total: 165 + 60 = 225 :carrot:
