June Exercise Challenge
Hi Chicks!! Here is the June Exercise Challenge thread, started early, so that we can get a head start on getting people signed up! There is also a sister thread--the June Weight Loss Challenge: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=172689. You can post any weight loss goals you have there and your exercise goals here! So feel free to join in! There is no wrong way to do it! Just state an exercise goal (or goals) that you want to accomplish for June and then work toward it, posting your progress along the way! We're all very supportive of each other here, so we'll cheer you on when you are doing well and help you along if you are struggling! ALL are welcome!! So, c'mon now! Let's start fresh for the beginning of summer! :D

Okay, so my June exercise goals are to strength train 3 days per week; to exercise for 30 additional minutes on strength training days; and to exercise for 60 minutes on 3 other days per week. This will give me a total of 6 days of exercise and 1 day off per week! Yep, I'm being daring and taking a day off this time! :lol: (But I have increased my exercise time on 3 of the days to make up for it, lol!) Woohoo! :cp:

You know I'm in! So gonna step it up this month. Cardio for 60 minutes three days a week, the treadmill and strength training three days a week. I think I may update this with a total minutes of exercise for a more specific goal. I'll let ya know before we start June Jacqui!

Here's my exercise challenge for June:

Dog walking - 900 minutes (30 mins a day for 30 days)

Get back to the gym! I haven't been to the gym in almost 2 months! I'll try the gym twice per week for 60 mins so approximately 600 minutes

I'm also powerwalking with a friend once a week for about 45 minutes so approximately 180 minutes.

That gives me a total of 1680 minutes of exercise for this month along with some cleaner eating! ;)

Good luck ladies!

P.S. I forgot to add that I have to start using my Wii Fit. I bought it 2 weeks ago and it's still sitting in the box! I might as well break that out for the June Challenge! :lol:

Yesterday, I decided my June exercise goal would be to walk 20 miles. I'm really hoping to hit 30, but I figured I'd start with 5 miles a week since I'm still kind of struggling with the last 1/10 of the mile.

I'm hoping to hit the gym 5 days a week which will give me at least mile walking on the treadmill and 30 to 45 minutes of strength training every day.

Hello! I am very excited for June. I am just recovering from a broken ankle. I am in physical therapy now and just getting back into exercising. I am not sure about goals yet, because I'm not sure what my ankle will be able to handle in June. I am going to try to do what I can safely for the first week of June, then Ill update my goals, once I have doctors clearance for other activities.

lumifan4ever 05-28-2009 03:24 PM

I would love to join in on the challenge. I want to excersize at least (no less than but more than is fine) 45 hours out of the month.

Most of this will be in classes but other hours would include the treadmill and the elliptical and strength training.
