Janet, it doesn't seem fair that you take yourself out of the results. You earned it, you deserve it!

Congratulations on blowing us all out of the water!! It's very motivating.

Okay, so the purpose of the exercise challenge is to motivate you to exercise, burn calories and to do it consistently. Well, I'm going to take my results out of the batch this month, because it doesn't seem right running the challenge and then blowing you all out of the water. Let's just say I had a great October and would like to recognize the rest of you as winners.

So, here's the results:

Total minutes - Suzie (1,062)
Total calories - Cheryl (5,938)

Consistent minutes - Donna (15.8 deviation)
Consistent calories - Suzzy (100.6 deviation)

Congrats ladies! Let's do it again and better in November!

Still waiting on a couple of results so it looks like I'll have to wait to announce winners. Of course, you're all winners in my book!

Good deal! I'll try and post the November challenge by Sunday.

Here's your last chance workout warning. So be sure to stay away from the Halloween candy and get some exercise in. I had a great workout today at the gardens so I hope to be motivated through the weekend! Keep on moving!

I'm in for November. I really need to kick it up and get moving so that I have some of this weight off before surgery Dec. 1.

I won't be participating if you have one in December.

Honey, I know what you mean about exercising in bad weather! I thought I'd be blown over the last couple of days.

Here's the current leaders:

Min and Cal - Me! (870, 5233)
Consistent min - Donna (19.2 STD)

We've had a whole week of sunshine and I've tried to make the most of it. Had a great workout with 6th graders for a fitness day at the gardens, today.

Tomorrow is supposed to be even better with sunshine and temps in the mid 70s. I'll try and enjoy it!!

I'm here to remind you to get your last chance workouts in before Sunday. We'll be posting our first results then. I just need the total minutes and total calories burned for the week. If you have been entering them in your log, just click on the link at the bottom of the fitness page and it will give you a summary of your exercise for the week.

Good luck, happy weekend and keep moving!

Hey Pam! Welcome - the more the merrier! (Especially Blue Team members!)

Donna - You only have to give me your total minutes and calories burned for the prior week. So, for this Sunday I need from October 3-9. I've been keeping the spreadsheets each month from when we started doing this challenge in June which is why I wanted to share your totals so far. Very impressive totals, too! If the sun clears and you go camping this weekend, just post your numbers as soon as you can. As long as I get them before the next week I'll log them in my spreadsheet, though they may not make it for the weekly updates.

Hope everyone is having a fit week. I'm signed up to help with the fitness program at the gardens on Fridays this month as well as Mondays. I should be getting plenty of exercise in the process!

Hi Janet, I'm a little late. Can I still pin in the challenge?

Hi Janet, I think I am confused as to what numbers we are supposed to post.
Can you let me know please. Is it what we have done in the week prior or total for the year up to the date we log in

I know I sound ridiculous but the lack of sun is fogging my thinking.

emoticon I hope the first week of October is going great for you!

I sent a spark message to the participants in September giving them their totals since they first started doing this challenge each month, and I wanted to share with you my totals even though they aren't as impressive as theirs. Since June:

Total Minutes - 4,195
Total Calories - 30,734

My goal is to really top that by the end of the year.

Horray, Suzzy! Maybe your power walking numbers will help motivate rest of us, too.

Okay, ladies - LET'S MOVE!!

So do you need a good kick in the rear to motivate yourself to exercise? I know I do!

That is what this challenge is all about. It is a great way to hold yourself accountable and try to get as much exercise in as possible. You'll be amazed and proud of yourself to see all those exercise minutes and calories burned at the end of each week. They can add up fast!

So here's the deal:
1. This is a challenge for individuals - not teams.
2. You'll log your exercise in your fitness tracker daily so you can get the calories burned. We'll post our total exercise minutes and calories burned for the week each Sunday during the month, with the last week being posted on Sunday, October 31st.
3. I'll post current standings on Tuesday evenings, so you need to post your weekly results before then. If you miss a deadline, you can still get me the results, just try to get them to me before the next Sunday so I don't confuse which week I'm working with. (I'll post reminders on Fridays to get your last chance workouts in by Saturday night.)
4. There are NO losers in this challenge, I’ll be sending goodies to ALL participants at the end of the month who send results to me each week during the month. But I do ask that as a participant you send kudos to the individual winners at the end of the month, too.
5. Minutes and calories for strength training can be included in your totals, but you need to add those in the cardio section of your tracker for it to calculate them. (If you're not sure how many calories to count, there is a great link below in my signature section to help you.)

There will be 4 individual winners:
- Most minutes exercised
- Most calories burned
- Most consistent minutes exercised
- Most consistent calories burned (Consistency will be calculated by the standard deviation between the weekly results.)

Also:
- ALL participants who finish the month and post results each week will also be rewarded. How’s that for motivation?

That's it in a nutshell! Anyone interested? Sign up by this Sunday, October 3rd. We'll start keeping track of your counts on that date, too. Now get moving!!!
