A Thousand Times, Yes!

Friday, March 08, 2013

This April will mark my first full year of being active on SP -- but before my first year is out, there's something I wanna do, something I've never actually done on Spark:

Earn a "1,000 Monthly Fitness Minutes" medal.

I know, I know, what's the big deal, right? Before I started running, back when I still thought I had to work out 6 days a week to lose weight, I coulda hit 1,000 minutes every dang month! But when I came to SP last year, I was trying out a new philosophy: "eat more, work out less" -- and so for nearly a year, I've been working out a maximum of 3 days a week.

Running 3x/week will do a lot of things: it'll help you lose 60#, it'll shrink your azz and help you drop 2-3 sizes, but let me tell you something it will *not* do -- and that's earn you a 1,000 minutes medal!

250? Yeah, no problem.
500? If my mileage is up, sure.
1000? NEVER!

So, my friends, here's the deal: it's no secret that I've been struggling to get solidly back on track for the last few months with little success, but have no fear: I have decided that ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

Before my first year anniversary next month, and in order to jumpstart my efforts and get back on track, I've decided that this month, I *will* get my 1,000 minutes medal!

(Now, don't get excited -- when March is done, I'm going back to my 3x/week strategy to prevent burn-outage, but for now, peeps, THE CHALLENGE IS ON!)

    YES!!!!! Even parking the car farther out in the lot (next lot over?) can add a bit each day that makes a big difference at the end of the month.

    emoticon We can do this!!!! Maybe I can still meet that goal this month too!!! emoticon

    I think as long as you switch it up, you won't burn out. I suggest dancing around your living room to old punk records.

    Make it happen! It averages out to 30ish minutes per day, which is very doable I think. I like to work out every day (one rest day per week) because it keeps me in the habit. It's almost hiking season so if you're into that, it's a way to bank some extra fitness minutes.

    Go get 'em girl! Whatever it takes to recharge your Grrrrr. I firmly believe we've gotta shake it up every now and then. Add some spice to our lives. (Sort of like the sex in a long term marriage.) Hey, gotta keep things interesting, right? emoticon

    You can do it doll!

    Now I'm thinking I should try running instead of the 4- 5 days a week. Although I've never been a fan of running, maybe its time to give it another shot.

    Now I'm imagining you stopping after every one of those 1000 minute to do a fist pump and yell out "Yes!
