The 180-Minute Plan

Recommended Posts

Starting next week, I am going to commit myself.

 

No, not that way.

 

I am going to commit myself to getting at least 180 minutes of exercise each week. Anyone want to join me and use this thread to be accountable?

That's OK! Maybe someone will, later?

I have 69 minutes left to make my quota for this week.

 

Good for you! I need to sit down and actually take an inventory of how many minutes I am exercising every week. I mark it down, but I'm not keeping track of the times. I know how many minutes/hours I've gone riding! Does that count?

Good Afternoon......

 

Noticed this thread last evening. I really need to be accountable in getting some regular exercise. I've been extremely lazy of late, and really need to do something about it. Soooo, thought I'd join in on the fun :salut.

 

I managed to break a sweat by doing 30 mins on the Elliptical today. Day one of my week accounted for, 150 mins to go !!!

 

See ya tomorrow.....

It's good to have company!

 

I did my 180 last week. Actually, it was 182 minutes.

 

Today started week #2 for me. But, I took it as an off-day. But, last week, I learned that I should only take off 2 days per week if I want to have a shot at getting 180 minutes for the week. So, tomorrow, someway, I want to get at least 25 minutes in and hopefully closer to 45 minutes.

Happy to report I managed 45 minutes on the Elliptical today. Got in a good workout. (105 minutes left for the week).

 

Superbowl......Yeah, I work crazy hours so when I exercise, I exercise. On the days I work, I have absolutely no time, so I'll have to make up the 180 minutes on my days off !! (I work long hours, running around on my feet and certainly burn a fair number of calories. But that doesn't count........as that is part of my regular routine)

Afternoon check in for me.....

 

Managed to do 55 "sweaty" minutes on the Elliptical :bcb_up. (50 minutes left for the week.....a.k.a. tomorrow !!!). Too busy for any activity other than working, eating, and sleeping until next week.

 

Cheryl.........WTG on the activity. As for me, don't make me laugh. I'm no super athlete. I like walking alot, but with this really hot weather, I prefer to jump on the Elliptical in the basement. I find the treadmill boring, even with the TV. (Makes me feel like a hamster on one of those running wheels)

 

Superbowl.....How's it going for you today ??

Hi guys. It does feel good to post the accomplishments. There are days aren't there that I feel why? I got my strength workout done and managed to walk 40 (although I was flying to get to work).

 

Off to paint so maybe I won't walk later but who knows. It feels good to move alittle after supper.

Have a good Wednesday. :strong:

Good Evening All........

 

Just checking in. Stayed away from the Elliptical today, as my legs felt kind of "rubbery", walking up 2 flights of stairs to my dental appointment today. Instead I did a 60 minute walk. (That gives me 190 minutes now for this week). Won't have anymore time to do any exercise until next week.

 

Superbowl.........Hoping you enjoyed your "off day", and it wasn't too hot for your 5K run today.

 

Cheryl........I need to post all my accomplishments, or else I'd soon conveniently "forget" to exercise. Somehow knowing I have to account for my activity in writing to others motivates me more !!!

 

Catch ya tomorrow.......

Hey all!

Just remember, minutes are minutes - they all don't have to be tradional exercise. Even if you just crank up the music and dance all over your house for 10 minutes without stopping until you start to feel winded, that's still moving more and it counts!

Good Morning to All........

 

Had a busy day yesterday at work, running about on my feet all day, (12h ). Just wanted to say:

 

Cheryl...........Good job on the walk. Yes, I found the humidity just awful at 8 pm last night leaving work. Hoping you get out early today for your walk before the heat of the day.

 

Superbowl.......Do you have any specific activity planned for today? (Or is this an "off day"). Stay cool , whatever you choose to do.

Good morning, so tired. I took one of those super vitamns and coffee and am hoping for a kick. I got 2 miles walked (30 minutes) and my strength workout. I think I am caught up on the strength now. To meet my goal by Labor day I had to really kick it up.

OH yeah I agree 10 minutes dance + 10 minutes fun exercise

Hi all! I hit the gym last night and went for a 5K run this AM. That brought me up to 140 minutes for the week. If I can get to the gym tomorrow, that will get me to 180 for the 2nd week in a row.

 

Y'all are doing a great job. Keep it up!

 

I got a great facebook post from my gym this week: Success trains, Failure complains.

 

I am using that for motivation this week.

Hope everyone got their 180+ in this week! And, if not, today starts another week and another chance!

 

Today is an off-day for me. I hope to get a run in tomorrow night.
