I am going to do 10 minutes of exercise (cardio, strength, pilates, yoga) every day, no matter what! I already have a pretty good exercise program going, but I like the idea of developing a STREAK of activity every day. It is yet another do to keep motivated and get ConfidentlyFit!

Good morning!
My goal is to get at least 10 minutes of cardio exercise a day. I already do simple things like park in the back of parking lots and such, but I need to get back into an exercise routine and back into a healthy lifestyle. Today I did a 10 minute kick boxing workout video with Nicole. This is a great place to start emoticon

I was inspired by Sparkguys blog about his 10 minute streak to join this team. My goal is to walk for at least 10 minutes, several times a day. Most likely that will be a long walk before work, short walk at lunch time and afternoon break, and a short walk after dinner, routine permitting.

I want to start a life-long habit of exercise. I think a "10 minutes a day" initial goal will prep me for success. Start small and grow in the habit!

My goal is to workout for at least 10 minutes everyday Monday through Friday. In the long run this will create a desire to exercise daily for the rest of my life.

My goal is 10 mins of anything that is moving.. I am disappointed because I use to be an active person always on the go walking playing all sorts of sport but now it is just bumming around looking for excuses to lay down ... well enough of that today I joined this challenge to motivate to keep it going.. today I already did 10 mins on my bike while reading articles from sparks amazing I actually did the full 10 mins time went fast plan on doing some games on the wii fit plus and walking with hubby after dinner..

Taking one day at a time.
I know that I can do it.

My goal is to get in at least 10 minutes every day. I have to admit, I joined in the middle of last week and didn't get in any exercise for the first two days, a very frustrating thing. But I know this is the key, the way, to working myself up to consistent, daily exercise of at least 30 minutes. After my disappointing beginning, I have managed to hop on my exercise bike for at least 10 minutes every day, today I did 20.

It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

My beginning goal is to get in at least 10 minutes of ANYTHING each day but my overall goal is to get back to my Walk Away the Pounds, start at 1 mile and work my way up to being able to do 3 miles in one session without collapsing, lol :)

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I like your idea EELLATBME! My first challenge goal is to spend at least 10 minutes walking the neighborhood every day for 4 weeks! The challenge is not the time or the walking, but completing the task every day.

Welcome AB1GAIL! I take a daily walk, but now I want to amp it up with another 10 mins of something. So much better when things are broken down into smaller, more manageable goals.

Hello! My goal for Week 1 is to "Just Do It"! I don't want to complicate it, or overthink it. Just get up in the morning, every morning, for 7 days and go for a 1 mile walk, actually about 16 minutes for me. Or I can do a minimum 10 minute exercise routine instead, if I choose. Today was my 3rd day in a row of doing this already and I thought I should go ahead and join the challenge!

I goal is to start doing more. 10 more minutes of cardio, 10 more minutes of walking with my kids, 10 more minutes of chasing the kids on their bike. I'm amazed, its day 3 and I ran next to my son while he was on his bike. Didn't think I could ever do that.

Taking my dog for a walk around the neighborhood is 10 minutes, so that isn't a problem. My goal for this challenge is to incorporate 10 minutes additional exercise to my daily walk. I plan to do this by alternating weight training, yoga and time on the elliptical to keep things spicy! I'm psyched. I really am. Thanks for this challenge.

I joined this challenge to remind me to stay active. I have Osteoarthritis in almost every joint on my body, therefore I need to stay active as this is known to help with arthritic joints. This
will also keep me from letting the disease win. I refuse to give up. I want to lose weight, gotta start somewhere. Starting small will help me build a routine that I can build on.

I can do this because I AM WORTH IT

Don't know what happened,, but I had completed weeks 1 and 2, and was in week 3 and I was no longer in the challenge and I was no longer on team. Rejoined challenge today, Thurs 7/17/14.

My goals for this challenge are to begin walking for 15 min, a day and do it 4 days a week and build time and days per week during the challenge.!

My goals are to finish the challenge walking 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week! Have already built up from 10 minutes a day 15 minutes a day, from 3 days per week to 4!. I also hope and plan to have made walking in the mornings a habit. So far, I need to work on my consistency.

Edit 7/22/14:

Don't know what I was thinking when I made these goals! I can't even manage to get out there my 3 days a week consistently! Even when I do, adding that much time and days is moving too fast I think. I remember when I walked or did aerobic tapes 30 min/day, 5 days/week. I hated it and never looked forward to it I like walking now, 15 min at a time, 3 days/week, but I miss sometimes due to trips early in the morn out of town. What I worry most about are I skip days. Don't feel like going. I want to be committed to go. I want to build consistency with what I'm doing before I try to add days.


More reasonable goals:

Finish "my" challenge. Not going to walk EVERYDAY. Let this one guide me..

Get consistent with walking 3 days a week.

Add time as I am physically able Able to do 15 max at aerobic level right now Haven't walked in a week! I'll see if I still can tomorrow..

Looking for a little momentum! I joined this challenge years ago and I am not sure I did even day one. So I quit and re-joined today, and am determined to make this happen. My goal, at least for this first week, is quite modest: at least 10 minutes a day of continuous exercise every day...could be walking, riding my exercise bike, swimming in my pool..that will be my base. I do hope to add additional goals in the coming weeks, but for this week, that is it.

It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

I have been inconsistent with exercise and want to make this a high priority in the next 4 weeks. I know that I'll have challenges every week. This week, it will be a challenge to make it to the gym each day. I'm on track today and have walked 30 minutes.
In the next 4 weeks, my goal is to make purposeful exercise an everyday activity.

Last week, my week one, I managed to do 131 minutes of cardio -- I walked to work every day except Tuesday, and I only missed 2 days of cardio out of the seven days.

M goal is to be consistent and walk on the treadmill at work every day for 10 minutes minimum; that will be 5 days a week. I want to build up to walking at least 6,000 steps per day to a goal of 10,000 steps. My biggest problem is the heat and humidity so will start out insides.

Have a streak already going of doing rebounding and/or walking daily--even if I don't always consistently log it, I'm going it. Now my next streak/goal is focused on strength training. I'm aiming to add a minimum of 10 minutes (6 days a week) of strength training focusing on arms, legs, core on different successive days twice a week with the 7th day off of strength training but keeping up the walking/cardio habit. I hope to gain better strength and metabolism from doing so. I'd welcome hearing from others who are also doing strength training.

I saw PYNETREE's post and wanted to do the same. So here I am. One week later and I've exercised 10-20 minutes 6x the past week, I've got a buddy who texts me and keeps me on track, I do the same for her. Today I'll get in 20 min on the elleptical at noon.

YOU CAN DO THIS!

Like Elizabeth did this week, I want to be here next Sunday, saying I stuck to it - got 10 min. of exercise for 7 straight days!!

Next Sunday is my baby girl's 30th Birthday, and she'll be home visiting us this week. emoticon But, if I am committed to exercising every single day, I think it will help me keep the calories in check.

I WAS up to working out 60-120 minutes 4-6x a week at one point. Many things have derailed that and everytime I try to get back into the swing I think I bite off more than my body can chew and I get discouraged at my stamina decline. So 10 minutes (or more) 5x a week is an achievable goal and it falls within setting SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, timely) goals that I try to hold myself accountable to now. By the end of the month I hope to be at at least 30 minutes or more.

I would like to simply incorporate working out in my weekly routine again. I think that 10 minutes a day is more then doable as long as I stick to it.

I work 3 days per week, 12 hour shifts at the hospital. I typically do workouts on the 4 days per week that I don't work. My goal is to do at least 10 minutes of exercise on my 3 work days every week.

Getting stronger every day!!!

I plan to begin with walking for the 10 minutes of exercise. I need to see how far my knees will let me go. I also have 2 of coach nicole's dvds, so I'm sure I can do something fom one of them for 10 minutes. Plus, that shounds like fun.

And BTW, my name is Susan. I am very happy to have joined this group. I am hoping that this is the push I need to start losing some weight.

I've been doing the streak of 10 minutes a day of exercise for a week, but made it official today. Actually, I'm trying to push through to 30 min. a day. I know this: If I can do 10 minutes, I'll likely do more. Motivating myself to the first 10 minutes will probably mean that more exercise will follow. Good luck, all. emoticon

Hi everybody!
My goal is to exercise at least ten minutes a day. By exercising at least ten minutes every day I hope to make exercising an enjoyable habit. In my down time my inclination is to be crafty rather than active. I hope I can become an active crafty person. I plan to check out a variety of spark videos to keep trying new things.

Well, as the team name suggests, I'm going to try for 10 mins of exercise a week-specifically Cardio. I found a walking exercise video on Sparkpeople, so I want to do that on days when I am not running long distance. That the main goal. emoticon e.

This week I will do some type of dedicated exercise (not just getting more steps in my day) for 10 minutes every day

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

Its not that some people have willpower and some dont. Its that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

I joined this challenge because I think it will help me be more active each and every day! It's easy to talk myself out of exercise on days when I'm especially busy because of the time commitment, but there's no excuse for not fitting 10 minutes of physical activity into my schedule.

Success is the greatest motivator of all!

I joined this challenge because for a few reasons
1) to get into the habit of more frequenty exercise
2) to find people who are motivated and can help me with my goals
3) I miss people and need some connections

It's really hard to suck in your back fat.
