Earlier this month Crystal over at Money Saving Mom issued a challenge: complete twelve healthy habits, spaced over the course of the year, which would help bring about a new, improved and healthier you.
And since I’m not doing my own habits this year I thought this would be an awesome challenge to take part of. A few of my 2014 goals center around becoming more healthy. Plus this challenge has built in accountability! What’s not to love?
January’s Challenge: developing the habit of exercising more
My Exercise Goals for January:
- 1,500 (or more) fitness minutes
- at least 15 minutes exercise daily
This Week’s Progress:
So far this month I’ve exercised 863 minutes! That’s 282 minutes for the week (about 40 minutes a day). I think I’m down a little bit from last week but I’m still going strong and on track to reach my goal of 1,500 fitness minutes this month.
One day I just barely made the 15 minutes goal but the other days I did very well on it. I guess everyone is entitled to an off day, right? As long as I don’t make a habit of it!
Oh, and I’ve recently downloaded a C25K program on my tablet. I’ve always loved the idea of running but never got into it. I make so many excuses (too fat, not enough time, can’t breathe, etc.) but in the back of my mind I think I’d really like to give it a shot.
But I’m still working myself up to it.
Maybe that’ll be a goal for another day. 🙂
