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

    Oh Janet, I will certainly continue to pray for you and the people affected by the storm. So many sad stories. My friend just closed on her snowbird home last week in St Augustine. She will go back Monday. Her place was spared but her friends family just moved into their home in Ft Meyers last year and it does not look good for them. Truly sad.

    Thank you both for faithfully recording our miles as usual. So appreciated.
    I am in for 125 this month. Not sure how much I will be moving as I have a lot on my plate this month. I will up it if things are going as usual.
    Oct. 1: managed 4 miles walking despite rain.
    TTD 4 miles

    I'm going to try for 40 miles this month. I seem to be unable to attain my higher goal.

    I walked 3 miles on the Saturday the 1st.

    So far I'm at 3/40.

    Dave and Janet, thank you for keeping this group going. I appreciate all the time you both give. <3
