Talking February Exercise Challenge

Goodness, can you believe that we are very close to going into February already? So you know what that means.....yep, another exercise challenge. Make your calculations and post the number of minutes that you are going pledge for the month of February. Remember that this month has only 28 days. (We don't want anyone to kill over from exhaustion!)

Reminder for Newbie's:
You are only competing with yourself and the challenge is to complete the minutes on or before February 28th. Please don’t be intimidated by some of the total minutes from some of our gals. (They are great and have been at this a little longer) You may post your minutes daily or weekly, it's up to you.

We try and stay with the format of listing our minutes from the previous post less what you have to subtract and then your ending balance. Example: (200 min – 35 = 165 then the next day start with 165 – 35 = 130) Makes it easier for me, if everyone uses the same format. On Mondays I will post an update of everyone's minutes through Sunday. All right, get out your pencils and tally up your minutes.



I am pledging 850 minutes – I'm uping my total by 160 minutes this month. WooHoo.

Hi All,

MissMinerVA, you just calculate the number of minutes that you will exercise for the whole month of February and that will be your minutes pledged. Then you will deduct the number of minutes exercised from the previous total. You can check out January's challenge to get the idea. Glad you and LKB Angel have decided to join us.

You go, Semo!

I'll stick with 1200 again this month, since it is shorter. But I intend to be all about the muscle this month. So more muscle and keep up the cardio.

Welcome LKBAngel and MissMinerva. I think this is the best motivator I have ever had. You will love it!

Well....let's see. I just started a new workout plan with a friend and after figuring the numbers I think my minutes came to about 990. I feel good, if not a little scared, about that number. But, heck, I'll give it a try as long as you good folks swear by it. Count me in for 990!

I'm pledging 1620 total minutes for February.

That takes into account 5 cardio workouts per week at 45 minutes and 2 yoga classes at 90 minutes per week. I'll be traveling some in Feb., so that might be hard to meet, but I'll try!

Hi all,

Congrats to all of you who made all your minutes last month, and good luck to all of us who didn't. We can make it this month.

I'm feeling much better than I have been all week, boy was that a bad cold!

I pledge, 900mins this month!

I did 60mins of cardio & weights circuit today.

Hey y'all! I did 50 minutes yesterday of cardioand weights. My friend and I have started a new strength training program that predominantly uses an exercise ball and it is soo much fun. I guess cuz the ball is bouncy and can be used as a toy the workout seems less like a workout I totally recommend it! So, 990-50=940 more to go for february.
Hey GG...I'm from Nashville too! (Well, I am in school in PA now, but raised in Nashville. I miss it so much.) Good to see someone from home! Good luck everyone!

I didn't quite make my minutes last month. I did 890 out of the 1000 I was aiming for. I'll try for 1000 again. If I just stay consistent throughout the month I can do it.

So 30 minutes 4 times week, for 480 for a month. More realistic this month.

100 minutes today.

1000 min - 10 min (warmup - recumbent bike) - 30 min (lower body weights) - 60 min. (aerobic class with light weights) = 900 min. remaining
