Arrow April Exercise Challenge

This is a stressful time. Exercise can help. How we can help you get in some exercise?

If you have a safe place to exercise outdoors, doing that daily may be the single best thing you can do for yourself, right now. Track it here and we'll encourage you to keep it up.

If you're staying inside, a little movement every day might be even more important to your well-being. Let us help you with ideas, encouragement, and a place to check in with others.

If you're working in an essential position, thank you. We want to support you in any way that we can.

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: April Weight Loss Challenge

Hello!

I would like to bring regular exercise back into my life. I think this is a good way to set that up.

I'll check back in tomorrow with my plan.

Thanks gardenerjoy for getting us going!

Default Moving around in April 2020

Hi. I'd like to focus on making walking a regular habit this month, not an occasional thing I do.
I like the Walk Away the Pounds videos on Youtube and I tolerate walks outdoors. Not my favorite thing to do but once out I find things to feel good about. I am really out of shape and don't want any injuries so I am taking this slow.

Ideally I'd like to do a daily walk outside and a walk inside. I'm not aiming for length of time spent walking, just frequency.
So 30 days = 30 walks. That's my goal.

Week One Walks
01: watp video
02: no
03: no
04:no
05: yes- shopping
06:no
07:no
---------------------------
Total Walks: 2 /30

I think I am going to revise my plan for the month. I am aiming to walk once per day and twice will be a bonus. I can already tell I am not for the challenge of twice a day every day. These are not usual times!
