This is one challenge I want to do. I like being active but sometimes I get lazy.
So far this month I have missed one day of being active and I don't want to have another day when I am not physically active for at least 15 minutes.

Yesterday I did the WII fit program (step aerobics) for 30 minutes and yoga for 30 minutes.
Monday I played darts for 60 minutes. .

Today I did one strength training video with Coach Nicole and I will be doing 2 more as soon as I'm finished posting.
The first strength training video was for abs/core muscles. I will do one for upper body and then one for lower body. Each video is 10 minutes or less.
They are free here on SP and I really like them.

Wow, you all are doing a wonderful job! I don't think I'm going to throw in any more fitness "challenges," you make me feel quite inadequate (maybe this is why I'm not making the progress I'd like to) !

I walked for 25 minutes on my treadmill today.

Okay, FattyBJ, I want you to change your username to something more positive. Looking at that name will only get you down.
Secondly, you have not disappointed any of us. Doing ANYTHING is great, and feel good that you didn't sit on the couch and eat all day! Working on the balance ball is really, really good for you (core).
And third, don't compare yourself. Even though I am 62 and 30 pounds overweight, if I do not do some form of strenuous exercise 6 days a week, I don't feel right. That isn't true for everyone, or necessarily even good for everyone!

Hmm. My walk to work is usually 10 minutes so I will see what I can come up with otherwise that doesn't aggrivate my asthma. I know I will walk home unless it is storming.

Ask, and it shall be given to you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matthew 7:7

Do at least 15 minutes of physical activity -- post what you did and for how long, as well as entering your activity in your fitness tracker.


Keep up the good work, everyone!!
