Okay, girls, I'm trying to keep up with you!

Another brisk walk with the dog plus some weights, sit ups and stretches gave me 80 minutes today, so that makes for a total of 140/1000. Not a bad start. I just need to finish....

Hooray for all of you! I'm jealous of those of you who can just get out & walk. We live in a place where it's way too cold & not so safe. I'm planning to drive to some park with DD on warmer days where we can go walking. (And I'm begging for a backpack carrier to carry her when she gets tired!
)

I got 25 minutes today.

Total: 65

I'm thinking about making up a wall chart for this so that i can get a visual reminder to exercise and so that i can see how much progress i've made so far this month. Has anyone does this? And any easy, visually pleasing ideas for a chart?

i'm at 50 minutes so far...30 min's brisk walking on hills, and 20 min pm yoga video.


ps, does anyone else count vigourous(sp?) housecleaning as exercise?

Wow! It's fun to see so many people here!!

I don't have a good idea for a visual chart, but I picked up the latest issue of the Yoga Journal & they had an idea to get a string of beads (similar to a rosary - maybe just a bead necklace) to remind you of your New Year's resolutions. Then you can finger the beads & repeat your resolution (or some special phrase or just breathe) until you feel your resolve return. I thought about making a string of beads for myself. They wouldn't help you chart your progress, but they would be a good reminder.

I bellydanced for 40 minutes today!!

I'm doing this challenge too
I made up a really cool excel chart to track my progress
(I was a planning analyst, so Im a dork
) If anyone wants it, PM me with your email addy. Anyway, I am recording my minutes here, at the Aussie forum I frequent, in the excel doco and in my paper diary LOL I am hoping all this accountability and support will keep me on track. I want to lose 16 kilos by April.

2nd 74
3rd 43
4th 41
