As you know, the Fitness Tracker automatically keeps track of your minutes from Sunday to Saturday.

This challenge is going to be simple. Do SOMETHING every day - even if it's just for a few minutes or as many as 10 or 20 minutes. You don't have to workout hundreds of minutes per day to get the benefit of working out.

Remember that many of your chores and tasks count in the fitness tracker, too! COUNT EVERYTHING you do. Count the minutes you spend cleaning your home, the minutes you spend working in your yard, the minutes you spend painting, the minutes you spend walking at work, the minutes you spend chasing your baby, the minutes you spend walking your dog, the minutes you spend DOING something – walking, lifting weights, exercise DVDs – EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING COUNTS this week. Please log everything every day – even if it is a couple of minutes here and a couple of minutes there. You’re going to be surprised how it all adds up.

Here’s an example for you: I even count the minutes I spend riding my motorcycle – I list it under Riding Jet Ski because SP doesn’t have a listing for riding motorcycle – yet. I wore my Heart Rate monitor last time I rode & Riding Jet Ski is just about the same in calories burned,

Sitting and thinking about doing something DOES NOT COUNT. Get up and DO SOMETHING.

Try a SparkPeople work out - Coach Nicole has several workouts that last under 10 minutes. You can add many of the Spark Videos to your fitness tracker, too.

Report in what you've done whenever you'd like - daily, etc.
At the end of the Month of July, let's see how many minutes we've accumulated for the month of July - if you'll look to the right side of your screen, you'll see "My Fitness Minutes". There, you have running totals for this week, this month and this year. I think the "this year" begins when you start SP, but this week is Sun thru Sat & this Month is strictly by each month.

Sound good? Let's go Team!
