Arrow May Exercise Challenge

Let's dance through the Merry Month of May with our exercise routines.

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: May Weight Loss Challenge

Alright, May fitness goals for me are:

(i) weight-lift 3 x per week
(ii) cardio 1 x per week
(iii) aim for some walks with husband - I will aim for 1 x per week, but secretly hope for 2 x per week!

I didn't quite make it to 1100 minutes in April. This month, I have a conference where I'll get lots of steps but will struggle to get something that I can call exercise minutes. So, I'll stick with 1100 and make it a priority to continue my daily exercise streak, even if once or twice that looks like 10 minutes of stretching in my hotel room.

May goal: 1100 minutes

1: 30 walk, 10 dance & stretch; 40/1100

I hit my goals for this week! So, that is EXCELLENT.

I lifted M/W/F this week and I did my cardio on Wed, in addition to weight-lifting. I have gotten in ZERO walks this week, due to rain - and hopefully might be able to sneak one in this weekend. Might be doubtful since my husband's Mom/StepDad are visiting from Europe - and they are too old to walk (pretty much) anymore. Sigh.

Heavy duty yardwork - clearing brush, cutting down trees, raking, hauling logs - made me use muscles I haven't used all winter! Super hard work but so satisfying to see that portion of the yard done. And it smashed my weekly hours
