21 Day Challenge...

post #1 of 200
Thread Starter 
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!!

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.

Go Maree!!! See Day 1!

Wendy and Heather I know you can both do it!!!
post #12 of 200
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!
post #13 of 200
Okay, I will take up the challenge!! I have already done fifteen minutes today by walking, but will try to add more when I get home.

Good luck everyone!! Sounds like all you ladies are off to excellent starts!!

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!
post #17 of 200
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!
post #18 of 200
That is a good idea!
post #19 of 200
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
post #20 of 200
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.
post #21 of 200
Is that all you did Tara, jeez, you better get a move on, slacking off like that all day (OK I'm sorry, you can stop hitting me now)
post #22 of 200

post #23 of 200
Nope Tara, it sure does not count...lol. Of course it does. I think you did enough for the 21 day challenge...lol
