Okay @$$ movers, here's the new thread for the April 2022 Move Your @$$ 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. :lol:

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 a day or so. Don't hold us too tightly to that though. :grin:


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

    Thank you @Janet and @Dave for encouraging us to keep moving

    I will try for 180km again - I am going to Australia in April to meet my grandson who has come from London He is 18 months old and I missed all the lovely new baby stuff. Not really sure how much running I will get in

    Thanks Dave and Janet for keeping the numbers. It truly motives me to keep moving .
    Going for 150 this month. Hope to get some riding in. Knees and back are doing much better with only left knee swelling from too many stairs on Saturdays’ church door hanger days.

    I shed 13 pounds. Got to get some more off, but being patient and taking it off slowly.
    Hopefully I have finally resolved my Periformis syndrome issue with my back from the strain of lifting my dad when he was in our care. Only took a 15 months of chiropractic help. Praise the Lord for feeling so much better.

    *NEW LINK*

    Another update for tonight...and that's GOAL for @SUSSEXBYTHESEA as well!!! :star:

    I really kinda over-shot it today...I had already done 1.5 miles on the bike at my PT appointment today and then I did another 7.5 miles this evening. I like to do at least 30 mins so I get my heart rate up and get a good sweat going. :sweat_smile:
