So, I'm late, but the community needs to hear how everybody's November challenges worked out!

Also, how are our quieter members getting along out there?

I cannot believe it will be December on Wednesday.

So! It is now time for the December Challenge Declaration Post!

Challenge yourself for December! Find a fitness goal that you want to achieve, that you can achieve with diligence in one month.

Declare your goal by December 1, then on January 1 we will have a roundup of how we all did!

It can be simple, like being able to run a mile by the end of the month (even slowly!).

It can be progressive, like moving from wall pushups to floor pushups.

It can be process oriented, like trying to exercise 25 of the next 31 days.

Try to make it something YOU want that is challenging but doable.

If you want to participate and you just can't think of anything, check out what everybody else posts, then copy them! :D

I also offer a generic challenge: Achieve 20 pushups in a row at 45 degrees or lower.

Might I propose a community workout day on Saturday, November 27, 2010? For the Americans here, that is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Let's see how many community members can report in for that day!

Good morning!

I'll be putting up the October Challenge Report post on November 1, so everybody can talk about how their October challenge went, but the time is here to start deciding on your self-challenge for the month of November!

So!

As promised last week, here is the October Challenge Declaration Post!

Challenge yourself for October! Find a fitness goal that you want to achieve, that you can achieve, with diligence, in one month.

Declare your goal by October 1, then on October 31 we will have a roundup of how we all did!

The goal can be simple, like being able to run a mile by the end of the month (even slowly!).

It can be progressive, like moving from wall pushups to floor pushups.

It can be process oriented, like trying to exercise 25 of the next 31 days.

Try to make it something YOU want that is challenging but doable.

If you want to participate and you just can't think of anything, check out what everybody else posts, then copy somebody! :D

I also offer a generic challenge: Achieve 20 pushups in a row at 45 degrees or lower.

If this works out and people like it, I'm thinking we might make this a monthly event, with a challenge declaration post around the 26th, and a challenge results post on the last day of each month.

So let's get started!

Anybody in the community like to do graphic stuff? I'd love to have a banner for the folks who rose to the September Challenge. Also, would be nice to have banners for future challenges.

Good morning!

I've been thinking about how to structure monthly challenges. I was able to think of a bunch of things, but I thought some of them, like kick up into handstand or do a cartwheel, were too much about ME and another bunch of them, like run a mile or swim 10 laps, I coudln't do, because of the restraints on my time and mobility (can only exercise when the four-year-old is asleep before work, basically).

Then it came to me!

We should all set our own challenges. Duh.

So, heads up, everybody! On September 29, I will post up an "October Challenge Announcement" post!

Think about an exercise or fitness goal that you have. Try to make it something managable that you could attain, with diligence, by October 31. But not too easy! It should be a challenge!

I will invite everyone to announce their self-challenges in the announcement post (or in a freestanding post between Septmeber 29 and October 1). The challenge will begin on October 1 and end on October 31, when I will put up a challenge results post, and everybody can report on how their challenge went!

Hopefully, barring mod!flake!, we can try this out for couple of months and see what people think of it.

I hope you are all having wonderful days!
Very truly yours,
CK

We've been up and running now for over a month!

There's a core group checking in, but we've fallen back from our initial enthusiastic beginning.

If you haven't checked in for a while, update us on what you've been up to!

Also, I was thinking. Here it is, the first day of the month. Do you think you can exercise (almost) every day this month? Nothing like a clean slate for inspiration!

Another thing. How would the community feel about planning a day that we ALL exercise? I was thinking a Saturday or Sunday - maybe the 18th or 19th? Maybe we can have a check in from every community member on one day? That would be awesome! Let me know what you think!
