Okay @$$ movers, here's the new thread for the August 2022 Move Your @$$ 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

    Another month in the books! On to August! And HEYYYY...a big welcome back to @JoeMO! :sunglasses: As I mentioned in my last July post, @JANET is off on her African Adventure vacation so you're all stuck with me for a week or two! :grin:

    I finally got around to going through some more of my Alaskan vacation photos and have some from one of our day excursions now. One of the days there, we took a Glacier Tour cruise to see the Portage Glacier. Not like a ship cruise, more like a houseboat lake cruise. The lake is fed from normal glacier melt and several waterfalls and streams coming down the mountains surrounding the lake.

    It was COLD and very windy that day. The lower section of this boat was enclosed and heated, but the views were too spectacular not to go up on the top observation deck. I had fun adding some effects to the waterfall photos. All photos were taken with my iPhone 13+ Max. The glacier and the water really is that blue, too! Something about the type of silt and sediment that gets picked up and carried by the glacial ice. All of the black stuff in the glacier is dirt, rocks, sand, etc that mixes in the ice as it moves.

    Fun fact: They get about 100 ft of snow in a typical winter. The heavy weight of that snow packs down to form the solid ice glaciers. They also estimate that the glacier moves down the mountain about 12" every 24 hours. Slow, but steady. We got to see a couple of huge chunks "calve" off the end and splash into the water. Very cool and it is surprisingly loud!

    I'm pretty sure I logged only one mile in July because of a huge cushion re-covering project I had to do for a client. It is now behind me and I'm counting on more time this month. So please put me in for 60 miles. Thank you so much for your diligence in keeping this going and keeping track for all of us.


    I walked four miles on the rail trail today.
    4/60
