This challenge is now over. (I'm sorry I didn't close it out sooner! I apologize - time got away from me!) Any posts or changes made after this will not be acknowledged as I will not be looking at this again.

Even though Butterfly1411 did not make her goal of 1800 min., she still gets the prize for having the most minutes this month - 1230! Good work!!! She didn't report whether or not she made her weight loss goal, but hopefully she went down a bit with all that exercising!

I made my goal of walking a mile and a half at least 3 times per week, of which I am proud! I feel more an more like I am slowly getting back on top of things after my surgery. Wish I could say the same for my husband. He is having a lot of trouble getting up from a sitting position. His back hurts him and his legs. If anyone has any advice for him, please send me a spark mail note. Please remember that he is 74 and has never been one to exercise a lot. I'm glad that he will at least go walking with me and still will do chores - like mow and shovel snow.

Set up an exercise goal for this month. Then keep track and record here how you do. In honor of Thanksgiving Day, try to record here one thing each day for which you are thankful!

Have fun!
