Default May Exercise Challenge

This is my first time starting a thread like this so taking a little from others, here it goes!

Everyone is welcome to join in! Here is the place to put all your fitness/exercise related goals for May! Any goal no matter how big or small is welcome anything that get’s you moving and closer to your weight loss goals! Be it just waking up a little early and doing just a little something for your body, to running around the block or taking a walk 3x a week, to x many minutes, to weight lifting. Heck even if you just want to make a habit of parking your car farther out in the parking lot, post it here! Everybody has to start somewhere, start here with us!

Exercise goals will be listed here, while weight loss goals, etc. will be listed in our sister thread, "May Weight Loss Challenge". (Stole that from Tummy Girl )

So without further ado, let’s get moving in May!

My May goals are going to be a little smaller. I have a vacation this month and will be away from home for at least a week so I've set a goal of 900 minutes.

I also want to add in a goal of adding in a little weight and resistance training 2 times a week. Even on my vacation!! I think I can pull that off

05/01 - 35 min elliptical 30 min yoga
05/02 - 35 min elliptical 30 min yoga
05/03 -
05/04 -
05/05 -
05/06 -
05/07 -

Week 1 - 130 mins

May total - 130/900
Weight training - 0/8

Thanks MeowMix!

In not meeting my April goal, I realized that I would benefit from more intensity, fewer minutes, so I'm setting my May goal for 1400 minutes.

5/1: 20 min 30DS, 20 min Strong Knees; 40/1400

Thanks, Meowmix. I love your photo

My goal this month is to take advantage of the nice weather and walk home from work at least 3X per week. I tested it out twice last week going two different ways, and I am looking at about 45-50 minutes. I can't get my butt out of bed early enough to walk to work, but at least I can do the walk back!

This will be in addition to my regular stationary bike-exercise video routine. I figured out the calories and I should get an extra pound out of it this month!
