October 2015 - Move Your @ss Challenge

darkrider42 Posts: 4,942 Member
Okay *kitten* movers, here's the new thread for the October 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 Thursday, October 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 SEPTEMBER miles here. We will continue updating the SEPTEMBER spreadsheet using the SEPTEMBER thread for approximately the first 5 or so days of October. Please add only your October goals/miles to this October thread. Got it? :smiley:

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.

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. :smile:


Directions for making a ticker:
Go to tickerfactory.com 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!

    I'm in for 125 miles this month. Because of where I live, winter could arrive at any time towards the end of the month. I figure if I'm prepared for it, it won't arrive :wink:

    Put me down for 40 walking miles. Hopefully I'll be able to change that to running this month. Thanks!

    Until I can work my way through this apathy/depression in which I've been mired, I need to drop my monthly goal down to 40 miles.

    Had a rotten couple of months topped off now by a tooth extraction 10 days ago which is still causing pain +++++ :'( and been told not to go for any of my "wee" runs by the patronising dentist! :s

    Put me in for 150 miles. Got a lot going on so miles this month will most likely only be commuting miles.
