I would like to welcome all the new people in the challange. I did 45 mins of brisk walking this morning and i feel great. I feel so much better on the days i exercise before doing anything else. Congrats to all you who are making the effort to get up and get yourself going in the morning. emoticon

I did it!!!! I got up and got on the elliptical as soon as I woke up this morning. Granted it's
Saturday, so I slept until 8:45am so I didn't get into the gym until 9:00am. I had to wake up a bit. But I feel great. I even did 17 minutes instead of 15. I was so proud of myself, I just had to go that extra mile. Let's see how tomorrow goes!

I need to join this challenge because I've been trying for awhile to make myself get up and exercise in the morning and have only succeded a few times. The few times I have done it I definately feel better and more energized for the rest of the day. Just shooting for 15 minutes should help this become a habit for me, because I can do that time walking my dog in the morning. So I'll start my first day tomorrow on Saturday December 2nd! emoticon

Hi all. I am new and would like to get in on this little challenge. I have the hardest time getting up in the morning, so I will definitely have to push myself out of bed. I will try though because it will help me with another challenge I am doing. Thanks for the challenge.

I am a newbie to this group and recently started my morning exercise, 4:30AM. I do my aerobic exercise in the gym, runing on the treadmill for 40min, 5M.
My goal is to run longer with the same speed with endurance and enthusiasm to qualify for the Boston marathon by next December in the Internationl marathon in Sacramento.

I haven't done any exersize yet but its only 6:45 here so I still have time, I got the kids up and to the school bus, now I'm going to grab something light to eat and do some aerobics.

11/14/06 1:09 P

I didn't have to go in to work untill noon today. I went ahead and hit the gym (the first time in over a month) and did 25 on the treadmill, ran a mile of it and did some arm weights. I feel so much better! But I am much hungrier throughout the day. Any suggestions? emoticon

dancing can count as exersize look it up on the cardio counter :)

I did the denise austin daily work out. Not the one for today though, I record them each morning while I'm getting the kids ready for school and taking them to the bus and then when I come back I look at it, if I like it I do it, if I don't like it I erase it and do one of the other ones that I have recorded.
Some of the stuff she does even though its supposed to be low impact hurts my knees and one of my ankles, I have some bad joints on me. So I look for the ones that are very energetic without as much jumping around, some bouncing is ok but actual jumping hurts me. Oh it was 5 min. warmup, 20 min. aerobics and 5 min. toning exersizes.

11/14/06 4:56 A

well i didn't really get my "exercising" in today. so i just played some dance music and had a lil dance party for about 20 minutes. emoticon

It looks like everyone is doing great!

I walked to the metro on Saturday morning and then did a lot of walking around DC...

Sunday I went to the gym in the morning.

This morning I overslept - I was supposed to get a full hour workout in before work. Instead, I did a quick fix 10 minute cardio workout...

Tomorrow I have to be at work at 6, instead of 9, so I won't be working out in the morning or at lunch because I won't be in my office...

I'll be back on track Wednesday!

11/13/06 11:08 A

Yoga definitely counts. I got some kickboxing in yesterday - an hour class. This morning I jumped rope for 5 minutes, followed by some good strengthening exercises.

11/13/06 10:14 A

Ok so I got up and did half of a yoga DVD this morning and the first message board I find today is this one! I am trying to lose the weight I have slowly gained over my last year in college and this past summer. I just started a new job and only work 2 days a week (for now). So on the days I have to be at work early I am going to try to do 15 min and days I work late I'll try to do more since there is no chance of me hitting the gym at 9 pm. emoticon Yoga Counts right?

11/13/06 12:25 A

Got up at the last minute this morning to get ready for Church!
Tomorrow will be a new day! One that starts out with some good ol exercise to get my blood pumping!

11/11/06 7:36 P

I'd love to join the group. This could be the motivation I need. I tried joining a bigger group but it didn't work, because I felt no accountability with so many people. My long term goal is to lose 15 lbs. I'm getting married in August of next year. I think I can do 15 minutes of exercise each morning. Saturday mornings will be my off morning though - sorry, gotta have one day. emoticon

11/11/06 6:01 P

Well I am definately feeling better today, but I went to bed soooo late this morning and got up just in time to go. So no exercise again this morning, but will get some in tonight!

I hope your husband will be home, soon! And next week will be better, but we're all allowed a down week once in a while.

I had off work today, but went to the gym first thing this morning.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Well I got my 15 minutes in this morning since I couldn't sleep I did it at 2:50 am.

I am sorry you are having a bad week. I am sure you will feel much better when he gets home and you can hug him in person.

Welcome TJsmiles!
Callalis-you did more than I did!

I'm having a down week! I think it's because I am waiting for my husband to return from Iraq, and he hasn't called since Mon! So today I ate and didn't care and haven't done any exercise since my 15 min yesterday morning! YIKES
One would think my husbands return would help to push mo onward. Don't know, I just hope tomorrow is better!

So it's a long story, but I couldn't work out this morning. But, I did go to the gym at lunch.

So, if you don't mind, I'm going to tweak my goal a bit -- my goal is to work out in the morning or at lunch every weekday.

My big workouts are at night, but I like the extra energy I get before work or at lunch.

I want to start doing some exercise first thing in the morning. I usually put it off until late in the evening.
I believe working out in the morning would be a great boost, so I'm offering this challenge to others that would like to get going early, to help them keep going through out the day!
I didn't do any exercise this morning, so emoticon of the challenge will start tomorrow! Hope you will join me!
