Hey there, movin' and shakin' mommas

I just found this site, http://socialworkout.com/, and learned about their April "Body of Work" challenge, http://socialworkout.com/april-body-work-challenge:

Quote:
The forces working against our dream are powerful: The second martini, work, family obligations, a glocal economic recession, your NetFlix queue. We can take them. ... We'll hold you accountable, virtual-like, for eating healthier, and getting exercise. We'll cheer you on, and give you cover to go home a bit earlier. If necessary, we'll yell at you. And we hope you'll do the same for us. It's a group thing, see? Us against inertia, armed with some simple blogging tools.
Participants commit to work out 26 times in April (average of 6 days per week), tracking workouts on the site. I'm thinking it'll be a nice support to get in my April minutes, and also a nice way to explore their site.

Anyone else want to give it a whirl?

Yeah, I'll join you! I just signed up on the website. It matches my April goals anyway, so it will be nice to get some support (or some ass kicking if I slack ).

Awesome! I'm sure any amount of time per day is acceptable, Mrs. B

I'm not sure if you can "friend" users of the site, but I'll be posting as my name (Mikaela) there, as well. List your usernames here and we can look for each other. And kick asses, if necessary

I'll be folding this into my April Minutes and the 30-Day Shred challenges here, too. I'm curious to see how the site works...

Bring it on, April!

I'm really loving this challenge! It's gotten me outside running on days that were outrageously rainy (and snowy) when I never would have gone otherwise. And some people's blogs are just hilarious to read. It's great
