Thumbs up February Exercise Challenge

Keep that New Year energy flowing through our workouts with the February Exercise Challenge!

State your exercise 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.

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've been thinking about this thread for 3 weeks now and trying to decide what I could do that would be challenging for me. TBH, just getting off my laptop on my nights off is a struggle, even though I love to exercise. Since I set a goal of losing 6lbs this month, I MUST start moving more and eating more of the things I should and LESS of the things I shouldn't.

Krystal's I Like to Move It Challenge
Week 1: 4 days of 10K steps, 1 night of Zumba, 1 night of lifting
Week 2: 4 days of 10K steps, 1 nights of Zumba, 2 nights of lifting
Week 3: 4 days of 10K steps, 2 nights of Zumba, 2 nights of lifting
Week 4: 4 days of 10K steps, 2 nights of Zumba, 2 nights of lifting

This seems like a little, but it is a start. It is difficult for me to walk/run 10K steps consistently.

Thumbs up

I need to work on consistency and routine - as in I need to get it into my head that *I am person who is physically active* and that this is normal for me.

I am going to be really modest and just aim for a minimum of 10minutes everyday of walking/dancing/bouncing on my mini trampoline.
Once a week I will go swimming.

gardenerjoy I will have met my goal if I post 10 min of activity every day in February.

My goal is to be consistent with 3 days of strength workouts per week and get my steps per week up to 40,000 instead of 30,000.

I HAVE to make strength training more of a priority. So my goal for this month is simple: in addition to my running, I have to do ST at least once a week, even on race weeks. A 2nd time would be a bonus.

My goal for February is to do my sets of crunches and push-ups 4 times per week and to walk or cycle everywhere this month. The latter might sound like a lot to some people, but we live almost in the centre of a bike-friendly city and the furthest I have to go is a 40 minute bike-ride.
