Okay this challenge is for everyone... You don't need to be overweight, and trying to lose. You just need to want to make exercise a part of your lifestyle. Everyone can benefit from regular exercise. The experts say that it takes 21 days to form a habit, so I am challenging each and every one of you to take a minimum of 5 min from your day to do some form of exercise, from stretching, to vacuming, to chasing the kids. Check back and let us know how you are doing!!

Start from whatever day you started exercising which for me was Wednesday last week so that is Day 1, but if you miss a day you have to start over...

Day 1 Elliptical 15 min
Day 2 Elliptical 10 min, 10 min of stretching
Day 3 Elliptical 15 min
Day 4 Movin with Susan video 60 min, Elliptical 10 min
Day 5 Movin with Susan video 60 min

Let me clarify that for you.
I jump around and shake my booty, (in other words I look like a fool!) and Gary stands there laughing at me.

We do this all the time.

I did it!

I've started jump roping! It was one of the cheapest and easiest forms of exercise you can add to any routine!

Ok I just did my five minute work out and that is how I feel. First time I have done any exercise (other than kid chasing) in about 3 years.


OOOO my head hurts!

I have a great way to get 5 min of exercise! I lay on the floor with my baby and follow every move she makes. (kicking, rolling over, etc.) I can't do it for more than 5 min because it HURTS! I read it in a parenting mag!

Sounds like hard work but it would be so cute to watch, I suppose a live web cam feed is out of the question

Mind you if we really were that would probably be great excercise as well

I'll take your challenge!

Does 6 hours of laundry count, LOL!?! Not to mention chasing after the kids all day, and cleaning the house.
