Thumbs up January Exercise Challenge

New Year, new exercise goals! Let's get moving in 2018!

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: January Weight Loss Challenge

My goal for January is 675 minutes of Intentional Exercise ( I like that term, Tabbycat!) The snow shoveling is mandatory for our daily living but I don't want to count it towards my goal.

Each year that goes by, I am concerned less with 'how do I look' and much more towards 'how is this workout going to help with my daily life'. As EagleRiverdee said in a different thread, overall fitness is what helps you in daily life.

Strength for bringing in groceries, doing yard work in the summer, moving furniture around to look for the dog's lost toy, oh yeah and carrying that darn 40 lb. vacuum cleaner up the stairs

Flexibility for things like climbing around the interior of your car when the doors are frozen or having to climb up and into a window of your house when you're locked out, or plunging through deep snow to get to your friggin recycling bin

Stamina for being on your feet all day at work and feeling up to it.

and the things we can't see, like our heart being exercised to be fit and strong, our lungs, the circulatory system that is bringing nutrients where they need to be, gee I could go on and on, right?

I'm going to set a goal for 900 minutes of any type of exercise again. That's been my goal the past two months, I've not achieved it yet, but I know I can! I'm going to keep trying until I make goal.

I let exercise fall to the wayside for most of November and December. I was prepping doctoral applications, and they were a huge time suck. More than the time issue, I had a last minute minor crisis with a couple of my letter of rec writers. That was so stressful, that the last thing I wanted to do was exercise. When really, that should've been the first thing I did! I must learn to keep exercise in my schedule even when life gets busy and stressful. That's my number one goal for this year!

My exercise goal for this month is working out with my exercise DVDs 14 times. I better get to work on that today.
