Okay *kitten* movers, here's the new thread for the December 2019 Move Your *kitten* Challenge!

PLEASE READ the directions below.

We welcome all 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 @$$ starting on the first day of the month.
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 (or kms) moved each time you update.

Please don't post any previous month's miles here. We will continue updating the previous month's spreadsheet using the old thread for approximately the first 5 or so days of the new and current month. Please add only your current month's goals/miles to this 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. )

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 either www.lilyslim.com or www.tickerfactory.com and create a Fitness ticker. 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!

Janet and Dave

    Setting my goal really low at 75.
    My ‘episode’ in mid November has left me under par and I need to build up. Can you believe that a Pilates session had me dripping puddles of sweat onto the mat - I had to admit I’m not quite recovered yet :(

    Starting out with 2 miles on the elliptical. Not my usual, but the gym has a "holiday hustle" with tasks to do to get stamps on a card, leading to some prizes. That was one of the them, so I got that out of the way. It's fun to do, it's not all working out, some things like writing down five things you're grateful for, no sugar for a day (I survived that one yesterday under orders from my dietitian after logging some choc chip cookies.)

    @k80flec - good for you for getting back in there and building your strength up. Remember a "low" goal is all relative. Do what you can do safely. It's more than those sitting on the couch are doing, and more than I'm doing this holiday month. You remain my hero!

    I rode my bike to church today to start out the month. 7/50

    Took myself outside for 2 more miles. The sky was black, so I thought I may have to jog home, but it didn't pour. I think I hear rain now, but nothing like I thought it would be.
