Is this our first thread of the month?

Am I actually starting the thread myself????

Okay everybody, what are your goals? You don't have to use 1000 minutes. It doesn't have to be aerobic. Any exercise will count.....

My goals are to maintain. I would like to keep my abs hard. I'm really going to try to get back up to 1200 minutes. Last month, I took a vacation and injured myself, so I wasn't able to get up to 1200.

Here I go:

S factor workout - 45 minutes

45/1200

Trying to do the right thing with three kids and a hubby.

Oh, just what I need ... a nice, swift kick of motivation. How about a newbie joiner? I'll go for 1000, since this is my first month, but I still need a challenge.

45 minutes T-Tapp

Yesterday was not a great exercise day. While in the middle of my floor workout, DS2 jumped off the couch and landed on my head. I am now sporting a very nice shiner, and I didn't finish my workout. So ...

20 minutes T-Tapp
10 minutes push ups and crunches
-----
30 minutes total


Today has been better. My eye looks bad, but my head isn't throbbing like a jackhammer anymore, so I put the kids in the jogger and went for a wog this morning.

37 minutes wogging
10 minutes push ups and crunches
15 minutes crazy dancing (as per nym's challenge -- I just did it)
---
62 minutes

I'm jumping in- Just kicking off an excercize plan. I'm hoping to walk and do sit ups at least 5 days a week. That's my plan and hopefully I'll stick to it! Oh! And 15 minutes crazy dancing everyday.

So far this month I have walked only 30 minutes... it's a start, I guess!
