I haven't done my cardio today, but it's safe to say I've more than succeeded in accomplishing my goal of over 2,000 minutes. Since May 17th - when I started tracking my fitness minutes on this site - I've put in 3,212 minutes. Unfortunately, I strained a leg muscle, so I've lowered my goal for the upcoming month to 1,560, but I've been using the seated cardio video, amongst other methods, to keep from getting sedentary.
I have to say, I surprised myself when I looked at that number this morning.

This challenge is about setting a goal and trying to reach it.
Everything you do counts. Your weight training counts, your cardio counts, but so does cleaning or painting your house and gardening!
Choose your goal level:
Level 1 - 500 minutes for the month Level 2 - 1000 minutes for the month Level 3 - 1500 minutes for the month Level 4 - 2000 minutes or more.
It's easy to keep track of your weekly and monthly minutes - if you have "MY Fitness Minutes" turned on, then to the right side of your screen, you will see your minutes for this week, this month, this year (which is not since 01/01, but rather, your 'year' starts when you started tracking minutes) and your Yearly Goal if you're participating in SparkAmerica.
Additionally, SparkPeople's tracker does not count over 120 minutes per day on your SparkAmerica Fitness Minute count (as seen on the upper right hand side of your screen). However, on each Saturday, you can see a accurate total of your fitness minutes (even if you went over 120 minutes on any given day or days). You may scroll back and forth on your fitness tracker to get to any day in the past and up to 7 days into the future.
Report in whenever you feel like it and at the end of the month, I would love to hear from everyone - even if you don't quite make it to goal!
Set a goal and get as close as you can.
