5/4 - A whole lotta exercise and I feel terrific!! Aerobic walking, walking, running, crossramp and weights (WOW). It certainly got rid of my rotten emotional state. And this is a much more gratifying way to get rid of emotions than previously attempted ways.

I'm going to set my goal at 1600 minutes again like I did in March.
If I make it I will reward myself ... just not sure how yet.

Good luck!!

Hey BLONDE2B: I think you should definitly count both! If you ever feel as though something isn't challenging enough or feel like you aren't even burning any calories then no I may not count it. Like today I just went for a 40 minute walk. Not super challenging, but I know it is still burning some calories!!

I was meaning to ask what kind of exercise 'counts' for this challenge. Tomorrow I have Ashtanga yoga, which is a very active type of yoga, but Thursday's is a more traditional, slower-moving type. Can they both count towards exercise minutes?

Last month I got in 339 minutes. This month I am aiming for 400! :)
Because of my recovery situation, the key to getting in more exercise last month was actually RESTING when necessary. ;)

Challenges are my greatest motivating tool. I love this message board though because the honest truth is that challenges you place on yourself are the ones which are the hardest, but also the most important!

I am going to keep my same goal of 600 minutes for April even though I hit 750 in March. I, too, will be traveling a bit and may have trouble exercising for some of those days. 600 minutes is 30 minutes, 5 days per week, for 4 weeks. That's not as many minutes as some members of these monthly challenges, but I think it is a reasonable goal for me.

Welcome to our new workout minutes challenge for April. We would love to have some new folks join us this month and I am hoping that the seasoned members return!!!
For any new challenge members we have been setting a monthly workout minutes goal and posting as follows:

goal minutes/today's minutes/minutes left until goal

I am going to keep my workout minutes goal at 1200 minutes this month-I am leaving to visit my daughter at the end of the month and will be unable to workout daily for those ten days.
