January Exercise Challenge
 
Start the New Year right by making a fitness goal! Track your goal in January, then join us on each monthly thread through the rest of the year to keep it going.

State your goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration. Join us for a great month of fitness!

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chic...challenge.html

I'm in! I am either going to do a Leslie Sansone indoor walking video, or I'm going to get outside and do a lap at the walking park, depending on the weather. (We had some nice days in December so it's possible there might be some nice ones in January too.) So my goal is walking 20 times. Thanks Joy!

Joy, your exercise streak is amazing!!! :broc:

I'm in! I did a December exercise challenge and found it to be very motivating. My goal is to work out 6 days a week. I do a combination of video exercise programs, walking my dog, hiking, and even back country snowmobiling (which is actually very difficult and great exercise!) and I'm thinking of doing some snow-shoeing and some cross country skiing this year also. I don't have skis yet, but am thinking of investing in a pair.

I've been super lazy since hitting my second trimester, so it's time to get ready for baby! My goal is to simply walk 3 days a week, at least 1 mile each time.

Posted my post earlier and just felt like something was missing to what I normally add to them. Couldn't put my finger on it. Came back just now to realise I hadn't set any goals. :dizzy:

So looking forward to getting back to the gym.

susan1975 12-30-2013 09:31 PM

I am afraid my goal may be the lowest one on here, LOL. I am going for 1000 minutes on the treadmill. I want to set something that I am pretty sure that I will reach. I have been doing well with it for about 2 months, now its time to pick up the pace a little more. Can't wait to get this goal met and set one a little higher for next month!!!

I really need to figure out how to change my tracker too. I just got a new scale today because mine was way off, like 6 pounds in 3 minutes off :tantrum::tantrum:. I am now at 210.4. This scale lets me put in my start weight (today's) set a goal weight, and then it will save my last weigh in too. I need to read the direction to figure it all out.

boatingmommy 12-30-2013 10:02 PM

Okay, I am going to join this thread along with the January weight loss. I want to work out 20 of the next 31 days. (copying after onebyone, Jacqui, and pixikat) Whether it be one of my exercise videos or some outdoor walking...I've got to get moving!!!:woops:
Joy - your exercise accomplishments are amazing!!!
Susan1975 - I just finally got my new scale programmed. The directions were a pain!! Hope you find yours to be easier...and your goal is just fine.
EagleRD - sounds like you have lots of interesting options. I am not a cold weather fan, but it sounds like you have some good ideas planned. :brr:
Everyone else - sounds like you all have to pretty high goals. Cheers to us! I am hoping the new year brings all of us great success stories!:cheers::newyear:
