    Dec 14: 53 minutes playing my exergame (on a mini-trampoline). Started a new "tour" today. Always seem to go longer on Opening Day, even when I am not trying to get an extra exercise-calorie burn to make up for calories in from a special event.

    The original terms of this challenge was "Make it to Dec 23" Anyone else interested it keeping it going to New Year's?

    Even if "a week of not checking in" would fit better (due to kiddie for example) would anyone be interested in a new month-long "Exercise Accountability Challenge" thread starting Jan 1 (and renewed monthly)? If yes, any suggestions on format, organization etc? For example, If we put a Pointer in the Challenge Thread saying "Join Us Here => (hyperlink to group thread) then withn the group we can separate "Intro" from "Check-In" from "What's on your mind / share advice on specific personal roadblocks etc / post celebrations" if you like .... you can either post here or send me a PM.
