Still doing 10 minutes minimum daily, but forgetting to add it here. Today - according to my tracker, 45 minute run-walk event (along with 8 minutes strength training and 20 minutes stretching).

Little by little, step by step, day by day.

It's hard to believe week 4 is here already! The extra daily effort has become effortless, and I feel stronger because of the varying nature of the workouts. The dogs have enjoyed the extra long walks, and so have I. I work in lunges and squats along the way.

I have found many new workouts on YouTube and for quicker ones, I love our very own Nicole and her library of workouts.

I have a renewed commitment to working out on a daily basis, and with the holidays I need the commitment. I am taking 2 weeks off from running after my race on Thanksgiving. I will continue strength and cardio daily to ward off any unwanted pounds through the new year.

Great challenge!

Making the 10 minute commitment has gotten me back into the gym everyday for 45-60 minute workouts. My energy level is so much higher than it used to be.

I plan to see how long I can keep my streak going. At this point, I do NOT want to start over! I keep an exercise band in the kitchen to do spots of strength training while cooking. If I come to the end of the day and have not gotten in at least 10 dedicated minutes of exercise, I either go for a brisk walk or do a strength routine.

I am not going to stop just because the challenge is over, but continue to build on how long I work out on it each morning.

I have developed an exercise routine that keeps me active and slows down the weight gain caused by my medication.

My long term goal is to stick to my routine. I plan on doing this by scheduling my workouts ahead of time. I already have two log books set up and ready to go. The logs give me a ready-to-go workout to turn to as soon as I wake up. They also provide a record of my progress which keeps me motivated.

This challenge has shown me that I have more free time than I thought. I've taken control of my time and dedicated blocks of it to exercise. Now, my friends expect me to be exercising during those time blocks. By letting my friends know how important this time is to me I have cut down on interruptions. Occasionally my friends will join in with me.

Patience. Balance. Moderation.

Have you set your long-term fitness goals?

- Yes.

So what are some of your long-term fitness goals?

- To maintain within weight goal range and to maintain physical daily activity.

What are your plans to help you meet those goals?

I plan to:

- Maintain healthy eating habits (and no more dining out)
- Keep working at adding Strength Training to my routine, one day at the time
- Keep drinking that water
- Get those 8 hours of sleep every night (I haven’t done too well with that so far…)

How has integrating 10 minutes of fitness into your day helped change your perspective on exercise?

Trying to reach that 10,000 steps/day made me do simple things I wouldn’t have done if I had not carried a stepper, such as leaving my car at the doctor’s office and walking to the pharmacy and back, parking at the very end of the parking lot when going to the store, taking the stairs instead of the elevator,…; simple things that add up and make a difference.

I have lost 11lbs since the beginning of this challenge, at the beginning of October!  emoticon

My goal is to get down to 150 pounds.

How will I do this? Staying on track with both exercise and tracking my food.

I have learned a huge lesson from this challenge. In the past I looked at things as all or nothing. Therefore, if I didn't have enough time to fit in my usual one-hour exercise routine, I would feel that I had "blown" the whole day. That feeling of failure would lead to binging, often taking days to get back on track. With this 10 minute exercise challenge, I no longer have that guilt so I have been able to stay on track all four weeks. That is a huge turn-around for me and I will continue to keep this mind-set. IT WORKS!!!!!

THANK YOU SPARY GUY - CHRIS!!!!

Have you set your long-term fitness goals?

Yes

So what are some of your long-term fitness goals?

I have 1 long term goal and 2 longer term goals

Long term: lose 50 pounds by 5/5/2015 (last weigh in I was down 16 pounds already)

Longer term goals: lose 85 pounds by 5/5/2016 and run/walk my first 5k by 8/31/2016 (God willing, I will do more than one by then!)

What are your plans to help you meet those goals?

I plan to:

Continue tracking EVERYTHING on SparkPeople,
Continue my nightly walks, and incorporate some extra workouts where/when I can,
Continue making better food choices,
Continue drip king water
Continue building my FAITH,
Continue working on my relationships (especially with my son and husband),
And, finally, continue to challenge myself daily!

How has integrating 10 minutes of fitness into your day help change your perspective on exercise.

I have found it enjoyable to get myself moving. Walking I the evenings gives my a chance to reflect on the day. It helps to get my mind unwound before bed, which has helped with sleep. It gives me time with my husband. It just makes me feel all together better.

Start July 8, 2014 goal 50 pounds by May 5, 2015.

Long term exercise goal: move, move move, every day, no matter how sore I am. If I don't feel like doing my stretching and strengthening program on a given day, go to Spark or YouTube for short workouts that I can complete. No excuses!! This is training for life!!

I've learned that it really is true that if I get started and do 10 minutes of exercise, most likely I'm going to keep going and do 30 or 40. The key for me is getting started. I've exercised on all but 2 of the 30 days of this challenge and feel pretty good about that. My goal is to continue with that kind of consistency and to add other exercises to those I'm already doing.

I have learned that exercise does not need to be painfully boring. I still need to develop my love for strength training, but I have found out that i am pretty comfortable with cardio (walking and biking).

My long term goals would be to keep up the fitness minutes I have been putting in (120 minutes most days, mainly by shifting my habits), and to increase strength/workouts.

I enjoy the fact that I have gone from being a couch/computer potato to being able to walk about 2 miles in 30 minutes in the 4 weeks I have been doing this and the 2 weeks I have been doing the walk a 5K in five week training program (on this site). I am also able to actually find and use the ab muscles I have (they have been getting stronger emoticon ) and I have a lot more energy to keep up with my children when my school work is done. I still cannot keep up with them on the weekend, but Rome was not built in a day.

I have a loop measuring 3/4 mile through neighborhood (mostly with street lights and sidewalks) all residential. I like walking this specific loop because I can go at dusk when I've run behind, or dawn when summer is sweltering by 8 am. I feel good about it because it's only 16-18 minutes (my pace is 24 minute mile for simpler daily tracking purposes) I started in August with Streak100 team, and then added our 10 Minute Fitness team here. My fitness minutes went from zero to 500 to over 1,000 when I add yoga or extended my loop! how cool is that! Enjoy!

Just starting week 4 today, actually yesterday, got my mile walk in, 10 min. spontaneous exercise was another half mile, and got my kitchen exercises done, and help hubby outside with moving machinery, so I really did get my exercise. Today as soon as my soap is over will get my walk done, and while watching soap I will get my PT exercises done and the Kitchen exercises done.

Will lose in November.
I will stay in the saddle and sprint the horse.
I will keep a positive attitude.

I finished my week four today but will continue to always have fitness in my daily life.
I was so busy today cooking home made dog food for my older dog which took me 4 hours. In spite of the fatigue I had afterwards, I could not go without getting out and power walking . I took my dogs out individually to add to my walking time and they have certainly profited by my new found sense of accountability to me.

I absolutely can not get through a day without doing some form of fitness and even on the days where I am tired I will do at least 30 minutes.

I am glad to have made this a habit because habits are hard to give up. This one is one of the best habits I have ever developed.
Thank you for this team that I will continue to remain with. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Read a book about walking and it says you should walk 60 minutes 3 times a week and about 10 on the other days so I am doing the 60 minutes and 20 on the other days.

Just starting week 4 today and as soon as I finish typing this I will be going out for a 60 minute power walk. I love my daily walks.
Tomorrow will be week 2 day one of training for a 5K which I am so looking forward to. I want to be able to run (not walk) a 5K thus I joined the group to train for that.

Have a healthy and happy day everyone. emoticon

I will be completing week 4 today. But . . . . not completing the 10-min a day challenge. This has been one of the best challenges so far. I am exercising 10 mins a day and longer on most days.

I am enjoying it, especially my weekend walks. I'm looking forward to cooler weather to walk in the evening during the week.

I'm also hoping to be walking with my DH.

Happy Sparks to everyone.

Starting this challenge I went from 10 mins cardio video a day to full on boxing/kickboxing 5 days a week. I've been really good about sticking with a routine, which I didn't do before. I've lost some inches and a few pounds. I learned that I really love to box and I plan on sticking with it from now on (which is also my future goal, to get keep at it & get better).

End of week 4 for me. emoticon

Didn't try a whole lot of new things, but my goal was to consistently exercise and do the things I enjoy most, which are walking and swimming. This challenge "forced" me to plan ahead and make the time for fitness, each and every day. I've broken even on the scale, but overall I have more energy, mentally and physically.

I plan to continue the streak!

YaY! I did it!
The great thing about it is that I am now in the habit of doing 40+ minutes of cardio and am strength training 10+ minutes every day. Keep these challenges coming!

How do I start the challenge over.

I fell off a stool and really hurt my foot.
I have screws in it from corrective surgery.
Think I may have done some damage.
Have an appointment with the surgeon on the 31st.
Haven't been able to fully complete the challenge.

So see you the next challenge

I just started week 4,but I figure reply to it right now in case I forget. 10 min per day is nothing to me, but some days harder than others since I do about 30-40 min 5 days per wk which also includes a 10 min dog walk everyday - so 30 min of actual cardio workout. In 4 wks I've lost 2 inches which I'm so happy and amazed just to be here and lost 6 lbs since started 1 month ago. Just want it to keep dwindling down. I can tell clothes a tad looser already. Aiming for flat tummy in the long term.

I agree - 10 minutes is nothing. This challenge fulfilled my goal - to gain control of my exercise instead of allowing my fear to control it! I'm in charge of my body! Yay!
