Challenge accepted

Nothing motivates me like a goal or a challenge. 

The other day I saw this 1800 minute challenge over on Crowley Party, and I was intrigued.  Beyond intrigued.

It starts April 1 and ends May 31.  Participants will be checking in via Instagram and Twitter.  They'll also be sent a spreadsheet to track their minutes.  

Obviously, the goal is to log 1,800 minutes of activity in that time.  Sounds like a lot, right?  Wrong. If you stretch it out, it's 30 minutes a day. I may not work out every day, but most of my workouts are an hour long.  I think I can do this.  Easily.

It will help motivate me to keep moving and be more consistent with my workouts.  I mean, I already get some of that motivation from bloggers like Holly, Amy, and Jenn, just to name a few.  But can you really have too much motivation?

Plus, did I mention there will be prizes?  Who doesn't like prizes? These lovely hosts (pictured below) will be drawing names from those who complete the challenge.  No word yet on what the prizes are, but I have no doubt they'll be awesome.

Last week's workouts
Friday: Zumba (80 mins.)
Saturday: Off.
Sunday: Off.
Monday: 1-mile run + 0.5 walk on the treadmill (25 mins.)
Tuesday: Off.
Wednesday: Kickboxing (45 mins.)
Thursday: 2-mile run + 0.5-mile walk (30 mins.)

It was another busy week.  And I'm just going to go ahead and say Monday sucked.  My whole body ached and I just didn't have a full workout in me, but at least I did 25 minutes, right?


  1. This sounds like a great idea! I need to really think about joining giving the slump I'm currently in!

  2. So excited about the motivation that's going to come from this!

  3. Sounds like a really good challenge. Thinking. Thinking....

  4. Sounds like a fun challenge!! And thanks for the shout out :) I love motivating others!
