My goal is to get in the pool 3 times a week for 20 to 40 minutes. To get about 15 minutes exercise on the other days. Sunday I do online church, but will try to work in a walk with our dog. Saw my dr. Yesterday and he concurred that I had a mini stroke about 10 days ago. My balance is weird so walking is a challenge. I have to hold hands with my hubby or use a cane. But I am determined to keep going.

My goal is simple for this week - 10 minutes and/or 1500 steps. I'll be upping the steps every week.

I've been staying home since the Virus has been around as I'm Diabetic 70 years old and have Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease.

Thanks

My goal is simply follow the 10 minute daily challenge. I often do more, but on days I don't feel well, I lose my streak.

My goal is to be consistent. I am trying to get 20000 steps/day while I am off work for the summer - I have the time! Unfortunately being at home, there are many distractions. My goal to to make sure I am being consistent in following my plan.

I'm late in posting for Sunday. Every day I do a 15 minute walk with the dog at night so I do get some cardio exercise. I'd like to start increasing it though. I do want to get back to doing arm weights but also like a variety. Need to lose about 15 pounds but want to get exercise to be a habit.

Hello! I'm starting Sparkpeople and this challenge today, with a goal of losing 40lbs and making exercise part of my life by March of next year. I just completed a 10-minute video (the cardio kickboxing video!) for my 10 minutes today.

Hi Nancy! I was about to post my goals when I read your post. I am exactly the same way! I've been doing the other things and the coaching every day, but I still haven't added in the exercise. It's my goal to do ten minutes of intentional exercise every day starting today. Feel free to PM me if you want to be Spark Buddies! :-)

I have been pretty motivated since I recommitted a few weeks ago. I track my food every day and I walk through my coaching session every day. My struggle has been trying to MOVE every day. I'm hoping by following this 10-minute Exercise Challenge I can start really making fitness a strong part of my program. :)

Look forward to who you are going to be, not back at who you've been.

The only workout you regret is the one you skip.

My fitness is all over the place and I end up pulling together whatever I did at the end of the day. I want to make this 10 minutes intentional and focused. I can't believe I've been on Spark for over 10 years and have not joined this team before. I know I started with 10 minutes a day in 2009.

I miss the gym. I has felt as though if I couldn't get to the gym everyday than I just was going to exercise. I have an hour or nothing mentality.

So, my goal is just 10 - 20 minutes a day. Walk, run, lift, I don't care just get in the habit of doing something/anything again.

I do well exercising until I don't, then time slides by and next thing I see is it's been a week or more without exercising. That's why I joined/rejoined team. I want consistency, week in-week out, every week.

walking has been fit into my life for years now so yeah the yoga chair thing maybe but I think getting stretches in would be easier. so stretching and making longer walks in the am before everyone wakes would be great especially if I can do a cheat day and bring back some donuts or a special breakfast for everyone during my walk. the warmer meals will have to be reheated but I still think it would be a great motivator

My goal is to get at least 10 min of exercise each day. Right now I'm reaching that goal by walking or watching a Leslie Sansome Walking Tape. My Fitbit one records the exercise minutes for the walk, but it does not consider the walking tape exercise. So I manually enter the minutes and I don't enter anything for the calories since the Fitbit records that. The Fitbit One does record the steps while doing the walking tape.

I am getting in on this late - I apologize. I have had two heart caths this year, and one stent, so I need more exercise. I am trying to get at least a little exercise every day, before the stent I had trouble walking at all and breathing at the same time - now I can breathe and walk at the same time - big improvement.

So my goal is at least 5000 steps a day, and I am working with a trainer once a week for strength training.

My goal is to become consistent with many things including: exercise, eating healthy and drinking more water. I have become consistent with getting enough sleep, now I need to be just as determined and focused on becoming consistent with the other 3.

My fitness goal is to dance for 10 minutes each day to new music (at least new to *me* music), or take a brisk walk outdoors with my dog and my partner. These fitness goals serve me in multiple ways, and some of them can benefit other living beings (which makes it more likely that I'll stick to doing it).

In addition, I want to track my food at least once every day for 7 days. I'm not making strict requirements about accuracy, because I'm a perfectionist and I don't want to spend every minute being anxious about accuracy...I know me and things will be very accurate without sweating it.

My fitness goal, at this time, is to walk the dog during my lunch break. Both of us will benefit from this activity. I do not intend to walk outside when it is actively raining; however, I do intend to walk when it is snowing or in between rain showers. emoticon

In addition, I will continue to document/track my fluid and nutrition intake on the nutrition tracker. As an older, mostly sedentary, short person my caloric needs are not as much as they were when I was younger. As such, it is easy for me to exceed my caloric needs if I am not tracking. emoticon

Hey there. I plan on starting strength training. In fact I did my upper body today. Yay. My knees have been a little sore. I hope its just because I'm a little heavier and not that I actually have a problem.
My goals. Exercise every day.
Strength train at least 3 times per week and not giving up.

I started the challenge today. I walked for 10 minutes with a 2 minute break in between the 5 minute marks. This is really good for me. I haven't been able to exercise for the past 7 months. I felt really good after my walk today. I am hoping to go for a 5-10 minute walk each day this week. I want to do it at least 5 days out of the upcoming week.
