Monthly exercise thread!


MONTHLY EXERCISE THREAD


Ok ladies. I'm guilty of it too. I MUST exercise more. Last month I got on a huge exercise high and exercised every day for around 12-15 days and then hurt myself and gave up. I have been fine for almost 3 weeks now and have not really been exercising. I know there are some other ladies on here who might need to exercise more too. We can use this thread to talk about tips and tricks to exercise and suggestions and questions. Or even to talk about what we did today! So sign up! Tell me what your monthly exercise goal is.



Your goal can be anything.
Some Examples
-I want to work out X days this month
-I want to work out X hours this month
-I want to burn X calories this month

So sign up by giving me your goals. We start Sunday and we can report in every Sunday with how much closer we are to our goal. The point of having a total monthly goal is so that if you don't feel well one day or are busy you can always make up for it later. Thus the point of an over all monthly total.

We can do it!

This month will be February 21st - March 20th
28 DAYS!!!
NOTE: If you want to join late that is fine, but you must join on a Sunday and are allowed to make a smaller 3-week, 2-week, 1-week goal in order to finish out what is left of the month. (Example: so if you joined February 28th, you would make a 3 week goal. March 7th, a 2 week goal ext.)

I had the same thing happen! Started on Jan 1st, my MIL and I got into the working out. We were doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, and then I really hurt my knee. And I haven't done anything since! I definitely have to get back to it!
My mom works at one of the local highschools and we can use the gym there for free - ofcourse it isn't as good as an actual gym that has EVERYTHING.. but for free, it should do!
I'm hoping we're going to go atleast once a week!
It's really hard with the weather too! Too cold to take Grady out everyday, and that's what I'd like to do, take him for a nice long walk!

I will start small for this month... I'd like to work out for atleast an hour each week!

Woohoo! First member! I hurt my knee too. Darn knees! Starting out small is good. It prevents injury. And every little bit helps. =)

Nobody else yet? It's ok if you have already been exercising, it's just a monthly goal to meet.

I'll join!

I got my exercise dvd in the post a couple of days ago it's really embarrassing though, but who ever said losing weight was a dignified experience?

I'd like to do half an hour of exercise per day for the first week, 45 mins for the 2nd, an hour for the 3rd and an hour and a half for the 4th

I'm a lazy, lazy cow - there is no denying it! So if I actually achieved this I would be extremely surprised!

I want to do at least half an hour per day on my Wii Fit. Does that count as proper exercise (I think that's possibly a dumb question!)
