This year I joined the group "Move it 2011", where the challenge is to run/walk/bike/move 500 miles or 125 hours in 2011.
It sounds pretty scary, considering I've spent the last three years being darn sedentary. But I used to do TaeKwonDo classes three to five times a week, and cardio twice a week. I was in damn good shape! I want that again.
So, I joined this group, for both miles and minutes. There's no prize if you win or consequence if you don't--it's just a group of about 150 people trying to be active through 2011. Your prize is looking and feeling good.
So! My first week is done! Let's see . . .
Week 1 Move It 2011 Challenge!
Miles: 6 (combo of biking and walking)
Minutes: 90 (exercising in front of the TV)
Goals for next week: get to my little gym and use it! Go on the treadmill and start to jog! Improve my number of miles and time!
Wish me luck!
