I have found that this past month the challenge has really helped me exercise more than I probably would have as I am pretty competitive. It is also interesting to look back and see how much you've exercised. So no matter what you do or how long you do it, join us!

Also just so I don't forget, I started October at 303

October Goal - 1600 minutes

Oct 1 - 90 minutes various gym activities, weights, cardio, stretching

Oct 8 (cont) - 75 minutes weight lifting (shoulders and abs), 10 minute walk, 65 minute yogalike flexibility training
Oct 9 - 70 minutes of weight lifting (back and biceps), 10 minute walk, 10 minute yoga

Oct 11 - 60 minutes of weight lifting (chest and triceps), 10 minute walk - Total steps for the day: 7077, 2.01 miles

Oct 31 - 0 minutes (sore from day before, busy doing work, etc)

October total so far: 2350 minutes

I've decided to add daily yoga and/or stretching to my routine, usually before bed so that I am nice and relaxed for bed. I am noting it so that I won't try to slack off on it Part of my goal for October now is to become more flexible.

I recently bought a pedometer, so I'll be tracking my daily steps/miles and noting those.

New here. Would love to join the challenge. I am just getting back into it, so my goal is 400 minutes for the month, which is roughly 3 30-minute work-outs per week.

Actually that would be 960 minutes, not 7200. Multiply the 4 days x 60 minutes = 240 minutes per week, times 4 weeks = 960. 7200 is a lot of minutes...hehe!
