FEBRUARY 2015 - Move Your @ss Challenge

hkristine1 Posts: 950 Member
Okay *kitten* movers, here's the new thread for the February 2015 Move Your *kitten* Challenge!

PLEASE READ the directions below.

Welcome to the newbies and welcome back to the oldies!

"Rules of the Challenge"
1. Set your goal and post it to the thread....distance ONLY (Miles or KMs) - NO minutes, NO # of workouts, , NO # of calories, NO # of steps - DISTANCE ONLY.
2. Make your ticker if you want to use one (see directions below or in the FAQ thread) or add your goal to the thread.
3. Get moving your @ss starting Sunday, February 1st.
4. Post as often as you can to the thread so we can keep the sheet (see link below) up to date. You are welcome to report what you are moving each time BUT please make sure you post the TOTAL miles (kms) moved each time you update.

Please don't post any JANUARY miles here. We will update the January spreadsheet once everyone has reported their January miles to the January thread - Please add only your FEBRUARY goals/miles to this thread.

The purpose is to set a distance goal (KM or Miles) and track your distance for the month - please only do one or the other...if you are doing KM just report in KM - we have a formula in the spreadsheet that will convert it to miles for us.

You are challenging yourself, not competing against anyone else.....the distance can be on a treadmill, stairmaster, elliptical, bike, roller blades, walking, running, biking, hiking, swimming (if you can measure).....just set a distance goal and do the work. Sorry, but we will not be tracking number of workouts or minutes moved in this challenge - ONLY DISTANCE.

Report to the thread often to keep us updated because we track our info on a spreadsheet (see link below) so you can see how you are doing compared to the group but not to openly compete with them. (Whatever goes on inside your own brain is your own business. :wink: )

The idea is to set your goal and reach it before the end of the month.

Welcome to all - new and old.....have a great month challenging yourself!

Link to the Google spreadsheet where you can view (but not edit). The Challenge Admins will update it for you at mostly random times.... ....but typically at least once a day. Don't hold us to that though.

Directions for making a ticker:
Go to and create a weight loss/fitness ticker (link is lower left side of page). Then copy the "BB code" and paste it into your posts on this thread each time you do an update. (More detailed info is located in the FAQ thread on the MYAC Group page.)

Welcome and we hope you enjoy your stay and that you find this helpful in realizing your fitness goals!

    Because February is a shorter month, and my normal schedule might get completely disrupted (we might have to pull our kid out of school and homeschool him, which will totally turn our world on its head, but hopefully in a positive way!), I'm reducing my goal for this month to 200. If it looks like life isn't going to get totally crazy, I will up my goal.

    Good luck, Holli! That would certainly be a major life change! :flowerforyou:

    I'm in for 75 again, hopefully mostly running.

    Also, reminder that if you want to be included on the "GOAL STREAK" count, just say so and we'll add you.

    I was gonna push for 40, but I didn't think about the short month. I'm in for 35. I'm also in for the Goal Streak. Thanks!!

    I completely failed in January. I just couldn't face the cold weather so did other things beside running. But I'm in for February because it has to get warmer, right???

    Put me down for 20 miles in February. I need to get back into it and hopefully can increase in future months.

    I'll stick with 80 miles since it's a short month and the weather isn't great.

    I am going to stick with my low goal of 50 until because I haven't been released yet by the doctor to do anything more than walking. Its a struggle during the week with work and other stuff at the moment.

    February is supposed to be a very wet month for us, so I will goal 150 and if the weather people are wrong, will bump up.

    Since I'm going to be relocating back to Washington State, next Thursday! My goal will be 75 miles. IF I get to the point where I've under estimated my miles, I'll up my miles for sure!
    Febuary miles: 75 miles running / walking
