Hello friends!!!<br><br>
This thread for encouragement in getting in a daily workout. It helps to make yourself accountable if you list your workout.<br><br>
My goal this month is 1500 minutes of cardio. Your goal might be 500 minutes of fresh air.....whatever works for you.<br><br>
6/1 - 45 minute easy run.<br><br><br>
45/1500

<p>I'll go ahead and start.  I think I've avoided this thread because the "1000 minutes" seemed optimistic and I would be left in the dust by you crazy mamas <img alt="orngtongue.gif" id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1370100878325_1242" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif">!  But I really need to motivate myself, so I will happily eat your dust and wave the banner for anyone else who wants to bring up the (sizeable--ahem!) rear.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So far, I'm just thinking of exercising, but the day has just started.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>See ya!</p>

<p>SweetSilver, don't be scared of the number! On my first challenge in March I did half of what I did in May! I like it here because you really get to follow what you're doing. Try to see it as a journal rather than a competition! And have fun :)</p>

<p>Starting slowly here,</p>

<p>Hey Everybody!!  It is so nice to see everyone.  I know I've said it again and again - but being accountable and posting your work out helps.   </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck!</p>
