I have to admit that I sometimes resent all the time it takes to get through SP each day. The page refresh rate drives me nuts, along with the fact that I have to scroll down on EVERY SINGLE PAGE to do anything. (Don't any of their programmers work on a laptop? We don't all have big screen monitors!)

So - I'm in & will do my best to offset my SP butt time with jumping jacks. Thanks for the suggestion!

Excellent! I love being on SP but it can be such a time drain - jumping jacks are excellent - but they can make me pee my pants!

I like that idea too! Sometimes I just get this dull, sedentary feeling and I need to stretch my legs too...especially mid-afternoon.

Very Cool!!!
I have a VERY sedentary desk job and set a timer to go off every 45 minutes and force myself to get up and take a "lap" around the floor. At least it gets me off my duff!

Everyone do what you can, whether it's a few or a lot. Jax, pushups, squats, dancing....whatever floats your boat. Let's just break up the "sit in front of the computer" time!

Keep me posted on your progress! emoticon

I'll give it a shot but not sure I can do a full minute to start.

I do something similar around tv commercials. Usually crunches.

I love this idea! But, I'm going to do push ups instead since I can't do jumping jacks. Thanks for thinking of this!

I'm going to add mine up, and then I'll do them as a warm-up for my strength training later. :)

Welcome aboard!

I broke my jax into 3 1-minute sets. It didn't seem so daunting that my pace was just a teensy bit faster than 1/sec. I guess I can expect to do about 60 then and I don't have to watch a clock.

Actually, it made me feel enegetic now! emoticon

I definitely want to do this. I'm going to set my phone alarm to go off every 20 minutes so I know.

For every 20 minutes on Sparkpeople...

I spend so much time sitting for close to an hour every day on Sparkpeople trying to get all my sparkpoints.

Anyone want to do this with me?
