It's November in a couple hours. In Ohio, that means short days, long nights, and a lot of inside laziness, but this year, I want to break the trend.

For me, it's 30 days of getting my Apple watch to show 30 minutes + of exercise, with bonus points for meeting my daily goal. For others, it could be push ups, sit ups, calculated steps, or activity on an exercise machine.

I want to get this done. 30 days of activity. Who is with me and wants to push me all month to get it done?

I love this idea.
This is not the month for me to accomplish though, with Thanksgiving and multiple trips on the horizon including a THP Experience.

But I am rooting for you and will follow along.

I am in. I have been doing 30 minutes on the treadmill 3-5 days a week for the past couple of weeks. My goal is 5 days a week, but some days work consumed me early and the next thing I knew the day was over.

I’m also eating healthy 6 days a week and then whatever I want for Sunday football.

I'm in. I use an Apple watch as well. I will pull out the bike trainer. I should also get back into a yoga practice.

I like the idea of 30 for 30. At least 30 minutes of exercise for 30 days. The only day that’s bad for me is Thanksgiving. That day, I’ll be traveling and then I’m going to dinner.

I started Insanity up again last night and started using the rowing machine a few nights over the last week. My plan is Insanity 3 nights a week and then DDP Yoga or the rowing machine 3 nights with one night of rest.

It sounds good in my head anyway, I need to actually make it happen.

I'll just continue to watch what I eat. That was the biggy for me. Fruit and protein for lunch and a light dinner. With my active job I went from a 42 waist size to a 34 since March. Oh, and I gave up beer.:confused: Now just whiskey on the rocks.:p
Nice job with the shrinking waistline.

I'd love to, and probably should, but way too many long days on the road scheduled up to the day before Thanksgiving

I wouldn't say that. I'm actually kind of embarrassed about my current conditioning.

Hoping this kick starts something that represents a better me moving forward.

a) I have no clue what those numbers mean.
b) is it really 35 degrees out there?
Yes, it's cold and stupid here.

My activity goal (outer ring) is 470 which is just basically my activity points. Move around, exercise, it all adds into this.
Middle ring is green and represents exercise minutes. Currently set at 30 a day. Brisk walks or carrying for 9 holes dominate this ring.
Inside ring is active hours. So basically, sitting on my butt for hours at a time is not recommended. currently set at 12.

Not so much out of shape, just not happy with where i am.

I'd blame the rum, but it's a collective effort.
