Here we go, the moment we've all been waiting for......This challenge is for the month of December. The challenge is to post the number of minutes that you will exercise (walking, wt lifting, cardio or what ever) until and including December 31st. You can post daily or once a week or at the end of the challenge, it's up to you. Congrats to our November Exercisers and we were all winners!!! Hope you will join us and take the challenge, good luck.

Here's mine....I will meet or exceed 750 minutes. I've based this on 30 minutes per day excluding five Sundays and Christmas Day. I'll push harder in January.

See ya at the finish line!

Hello Everyone...

This sounds like a challenge that I am up for. I have never counted how many hours I work out. So this is gonna be great. I am gonna guess and say I should work out about 1600 minutes. I work out usually two time a day for 60 minutes but with the holidays this 1600 minutes might be tough. But this will keep me honest. Maybe I am setting my goal high...but you have to start some where.

12/01/02 - No exercise....day of rest....

12/02/02 - So far today at lunch I went to gym and ran/walked for 60 minutes on treadmill....tonight will be a 60 minute spinning class.

1600 - 120 = 1480

This looks like it is going to be fun...I will push myself to get to "0"

Looking forward to reading everyones posts...Have fun

I want to get in on this too. I think this idea is great motivation!

I'll try for 900 this month.

Nothing to subtract till later when I go to the gym!

I love this! I am going to "pledge" 1500 minutes and can't wait to run out of minutes at the end of the month and start all over again!!
I've done 150 already, so only 1350 to go! Good luck everyone!

OH MY GOSH, WE'VE CREATED A MONSTER!!! And I am so loving it. Welcome, welcome, welcome........ We are thrilled that this is working and the more we have join, the more fun it will be. Please keep your format similar to mine and I will do my best to post everyone's tally on Monday Mornings.

Anyone can join in on the challenge just calculate your minutes from the day you start until the last day of this month. (No excuses of waiting until the next one starts) And please do not be intimidated by the numbers that others are posting, everyone has to start somewhere and if you aren't doing any exercise now begin slow and increase as you get stronger. We are only competing with ourselves.

December 2nd ~ day 2

Zero

Tuesday, December 3rd ~ day 3

750 - 30 = 720

Balance 12/2: 1215
Exercise 12/3/02: 45
Balance Left: 1170

Semo I got up late today and could only walk in the freakin' 15 degree weather. I had to stay in the shower for 20 minutes before I could feel my legs again. But I am so happy I could do it!

Good Luck to Everyone....I am happy too so many are joining!

P.S. by the way I have lost 12.4 lbs since joining the 3FC website on 9/11/02, or you could say that I have lost one medium sized cat...my cat weighs, strangely enough, 12.4 lbs...I just realized that as I was writing this

Oh, I can't pass up this great group!! Semo, what a great plan!

I'm not going to promise anything I can't do. Lets' see. Average of 30 minutes a day comes to 930 minutes for the month.

Dec 1 - 20 minutes
Dec 2 - 35 minutes
Dec 3 - Well, the day's not over yet, is it?

930 - 55 = 875 to go.

I CAN DO THIS!!! ... now that I've figured out the buttons on my treadmill ... most of them anyway....

1350 - 60 = 1290 left for me!
I often think of calories as something tangible to be 'spent' and this is similiar! I love the idea of wittling down such a big number between now and the end of the month!!
