My challenge is to do some type of cardio exercise for 10 minutes/day x 7 days. I've been slacking this past week and need to recommit to my exercise program.

My goal is to work out in the morning (at home) at least 4x a week, and go to the gym or walk in the afternoon at least 3x a week. I will also walk at work during my break or lunch, or do stretches at my desk, every day. I've mostly been on track for this before starting this challenge, but putting it down here will make me even more committed!

My challenge is now walking 10,000 steps 6 days a week.

I need to set my 10 minute a day exercise --I will continue to walk each morning and add more time to each time I walk. So far and I wouldn't want to jinx myself but I have been exercising every morning before work for 14 weeks.

I have been lax about getting back into exercising. To me it was always an hour at the gym or nothing at all. 10 min a day is something that will be easy to stick to. I will trade off yoga, walking, and light weights. Today I am going to start with Yoga.

My 10 min streak started today. 10 min of indoor powerwalking.

I'm usually an "all or nothing" person. If I don't have 30 min then I won't do - my excuse is that I'm too busy. But I can find 10 min in the day to make it happen. My goal for this challenge is 10 min daily of purposeful active movement and 1-2 days/week incorporating stretching and flexability.

My goal is to do at least 10 minutes of cardio and do at least one strength training exercise everyday.

Put on some upbeat music.
If you find yourself dancing in your seat, take it a step further. Get up and start dancing on your feet.
You'll burn more calories that way.

I like vitageam and short_cort's goals too. One of my goals is to plan 10 minutes of stretching in the morning, first thing, as I've tended to put off and put off, and dread it all day in the past. To get stronger, to ease pain, and be able to walk more without pain.

My goal for this week is to browse and find exercises that I can do and see if I can stick to them every day for just 10 minutes. Sounds easy enough but I don't think it will be as I'm not confident that I can stick to things. So there's a challanfge for me :)

My goals will be centered around my rehab from rotator cuff surgery. I will slowly be moving from stretching/range of motion exercises to strength using a program set up by my physical therapist. I will be incorporating exercise on my recumbent bike at least 4 days a week into the strength.

Just found this Official 10 Minute Challenge - and i think this may be just what i need. I do challenges in a couple of the teams i belong to, but always seem to drop off about half way thru.
But am thinking this may be a good one for me - will see.


So here i go = Week One. Will come back and list a couple of goals for the first week.

My goal during this Challenge/Streak is to walk 10 minutes a day for three days (Mon, Wed, Fri) and do strength training a minimum 10 days three days (Tues, Thurs, Sat) and yoga or stretching for 10 minutes on the last day (Sun). This should give me a variety of exercises without taxing a body that has not worked out in 10+ years (since I had my first child).

My goal for this challenge is to use this 10 minute daily minimum to get myself back into the habit of exercising. I've been way off track this summer and the scale is up almost 10 lbs. I know how easy it would be to regain the 80 lbs I've lost here at SP and I'm determined NOT to do that.

My goal for the week is to add the 10-minutes to my morning routine. Even if it is just to go for a walk. I do exercise most afternoons or mid-day but have been wanting to add morning exercise. This challenge is just the ticket!

My goal is 10 minutes of exercise at home on days I don't make it for my usual hiking, walk, or bike ride 3-4 times a week. Therefor, daily there will be something accomplished. It will include either walking up and down stairs or resistance exercises at home.

My challenge for myself is to get moving at least 10 mins every hour. Either just walk around the house, jump on the bike or treadmill, but to get up and do something. I am sitting on the couch waaaaay too much. Or get up and move during the commercials, that's 5 mins at a pop, I'll try both and see which works out better.

I started on this weight loss journey because i am 100+ lbs overweight and my body is very unhappy with me. My goal right now is to at least start exercising...10 mins 3 times a day, either bicycle or treadmill. This I will do for a month then I want to add weight training 2 days/week. For now 10 mins, 3 times a day. So if you don't see something posted by noon Mon, Wed, Or Fri get after me please...LOL I'll take any and all help/encouragement/advice/motivation/swift kick in the rear!
Thanks

Loved the challenge and am adding my daily 10,000 steps per day challenge to 6 days a week.

going out of town today to visit my daughter so my goal is to get my fitness in once I get back home this evening. Humidex is going to make it feel like 40C so I think I will make my fitness challenge indoor doing the stationary cycling and will challenge myself to complete 30 minutes instead of 10

Have a happy and healthy day everyone

My goal for my first week is doing 10min exercise everyday. I'm not very keen on exercise and so far 10 minutes is the only time span that doesn't make me think "oh no! too much! the couch is better".

Yesterday was another goof off day but did spend several hours cleaning our koi pond so did have some NEAT activities. Worked up a good sweat partly because it was 33 C.
But my heart rate monitor showed up yesterday so I am excited to try it out.
Also received my copy of the 1940's serial of Captain America. I will exercise to one episode which usually runs about 15 minutes.

Walk an hour each outing - twice a week (weekends)

Complete the challenges in this challenge - as long as it doesn't include eating fish, turnip greens or brussel sprouts emoticon

and HAVE FUN DOING IT!

Today my goals are to get out for a power walk and to do some stationary cycling this evening.
My body is a bit sore today from strength training last night but I know it will feel better after walking.

Maybe adding 5 minutes a day is a little too much too soon? Maybe you could do 5 minutes a day for 3 or 4 days or even a week, then add 5 more minutes.Let your body get used to that for about a week, then add 5 more. Just a suggestion....:)

Last week I began a plan of my own where I started (on Sunday 17 Aug) with 15 minutes on the treadmill. I have to use the treadmill because at 76 and having had a spinal operation, my balance requires that I have something to hold on to. My plan was to add 5 minutes per day until 45 minutes and then start increasing levels of speed and incline. I also planned to add one strength exercise per day until I did at least 4/day. And separately to do 3 sets each of crunches and modified push up. Well I got to 30 minutes with crunches and push ups and then consistency went south. I skipped a day. Then I did 25 minutes by doing 15 and 10 minute sessions. Then another day skipped. So I am here trying to find a way to encourage consistency.
I try to not beat myself up when I don't exercise but maybe I need to start beating and stop excusing.

My challenge is to walk at least 10 minutes every day even if all I can do is walk up and down the hall way because the weather is to bad.The only thing that would keep me in is rainy and windy days, the two together would keep me in. But I don't have to think about that now as it is a bone dry summer.

My goal is a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise a day every day - but going to try for 30 minutes every day.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomfort.
