It is a start for people who don;t exercise. It serves as a reminder for many of us.

This is my first day and my first post which I am very excited about as one of my mini-goals is to walk/run a mile every day which should take about 15-20 minutes (I think). So here I go!

Taking 15 minutes out to plan my meals better, this way I can have a all around healthy meal. also 15 minutes daily to myself...I tend to take care of everyone else but myself.

My challenge for today is cleaning. This doesn't sound like a lot, but I live on the 4th floor of a walk-up building. I have to lug my garbage down the stairs and then climb back up them. I have been cleaning a lot today (have lots of garbage) and instead of taking all the bags at once, I am taking them one at a time. It's my easy way of getting more exercise into the day :)

I have always walked pretty much every where (no car) Joined sparkpeople on Sunday. Today was my first attempt at doing exercise since high school. Flipped to netflix and put on crunch: cardio. Did 15 mins of that and had to stop. Rested for a few mins then tried pilates for 7 mins. Then did some stretching out. I did not crawl back into bed this morning after sending my kid off to school. I ate a healthy breakfast and lunch and did some exercise. Yeah me!

I don't have trouble with doing low/medium intensity exersises. however i thing challanging myself to make sure i either do 15 minutes of strenght training, intense cardio/circuits, or silent yoga may help me regain some of my focus and energy.

Loving - this is a great idea! Consistency is definitely what it takes - little steps always rather than trying to do it all on one day, and forgetting the other 6 days of the week.
And commitment is another issue I've been working on. As much as I say I want something, I have trouble committing, and keeping that commitment!

Just an idea for the team leaders. What about a challenge of just commiting to 15 minutes a day MINIMUM of any exercise. Must be done daily, no excuses, challenge to see who can stick to it for most days in a row.
I am learning that I can get so much accomplished in just 15 minutes, but I need the consistency if knowing that I am going to do this, NO MATTER WHAT.
