Okay Chicks, usually FSA starts the monthly exercise goals thread, but last month Ms_P was nice enough to get it started, and this month our newcomer Bella has started it! Thank you Bella! To keep the May Weight Loss Goals list from becoming too long and hard to follow, I'm going to divide it, putting the exercise goals here and keeping the weight loss (and other goals) on the sister thread (May Weight Loss Challenge). Post your daily exercise (if you choose to) in this thread please. Thanks!! And good luck!!! We can do it!!

So, here's who we have so far for the EXERCISE list:

FullSteamAhead: Complete 1200 minutes
Jacqui_D: Strength train three times a week; walk 30 min every day
CakeBatter: Run 44 miles; finish 5K race in under 36:00; do pushup challenge (thru wk 4); do 30 consecutive PU / EOMo; 20/20/20/20 (twice/wk)
Tammyjo: Exercise at least 4 times a week
Jacque9999: Stick with exercise program set up with workout buddy; make sure daughter starts (and sticks with) boot camp starting May 19th
Shrinkingleah: Train (gym) twice a week; walk one mile or eliptical 30-45 min three days a week
Rowenna: Keep up current exercise regimen
Hattie: Try to keep healing the nerve and start exercising again
BellaEllaEllAaa: Exercise everyday--cardio at least 30 min, weights and toning 3x a week
Mikayla: Strength train 3 days a week; exercise at least 60 min a day, 5 days a week
Getlost: Complete 30DS; exercise 30 min every day; walk whenever possible; try to buy exercise equipment
Lene1974: Exercise 800 minutes
Icandoallthings6613: Do 65 total miles, 40+ running; recommit to weight lifting and 100 push-up challenge; do 25 consecutive push-ups; run 2 10k's
Econ_nerd: Get some exercise in each and every day; be accountable in this thread
Adaem: Use the treadmill at least 3 times a week; use WII Fit at least 2 times a week
SuperChix: Breawna: Exercise for an hour every day; Jodi: Start exercising
Wifey: Go to the gym at least 3 times per week for a 60-minute workout for 720 total minutes; walk the dog everyday starting May 4 for 840 total minutes
StarryNights110: Strength train weekdays; ride 60 min on stationary bike everyday

I'm definitely in -- I'm not absolutely sure of my goals yet (sorry Jacqui if I have to change them in the next couple of days and fudge up your list!).

This month is going to be a bit crazy. I graduate from college in less than three weeks, and then I have to bring my whole life back to the east coast from LA for my sister's graduation and my high school best friend's wedding, all before June.

So - - amidst the craziness, here are my initials aims (subject to change) for the month of May:

65 total miles, 40+ running. Recommit to weight lifting and 100 push-up challenge; new goal of 25 consecutive push-ups by the end of May. Run 2 10k's.

Those goals will definitely make me push myself, but I hope I'm ready for the challenge. I'm excited for May, ladies!!

Ok. My goal is going to be pretty simple. I have fallen off the exercise wagon for a while and want to keep it simple so I will stick with it.

My goal is to get on the tredmill at least 3 times a week and WII Fit at least 2 times a week.

Ican, Econ, and Adaem, I have added you to the list above! Good luck!

Welcome Adaem!

Ican, don't worry about changing your goals as we get going. I seem to be the reigning queen of that, lol! I've already changed my May goals once and May isn't even here yet! Lol!

Cake, please check to make sure that I listed all your goals correctly. I'll move your flylady goal to the other thread, since we include general goals there too, okay? I'm so glad you're here! I know you are going to rock it like you did in April!!
