Default 300+ No Excuses in November Exercise Thread

Welcome!!

to the November 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 2010 the 300+ club broke our 2009 record and exercised for over 250,000 minutes. I don't know if we'll break that record, but I do know exercise is a great way to keep on plan.

We invite you to join us!

To keep track, just add your minutes to the existing groupís minutes. If youíre new, look at what other people are doing Ė itís 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.

Our Totals so Far:

21764 January
9935 February
14504 March
14575 April
13184 May
5663 June
7335 July
7315 August
8172 September
4451 October
______
98726 minutes thru October!!

I lost my exercise momentum, so I'm restarting with a little goal: 500 minutes.

Counting a little extra walking on campus on Monday and Tuesday, I'm starting the month with 52 minutes.

Personal 52/500

Group total: 60 + 52 = 112

Only 10 minutes, but I don't want to let a day go by without any intentional exercise, so I'll take this 10.
