30X5 ... I am in!

***Daily stats for the 30X5 will be in a sticky post at the top of the page***

So, I need to get in shape. Anyone else? Yeah.

The problem is this ... well, OK, THESE:

*I need accountability, y'all. I simply cannot do this alone.

*I need short term, forseeable and, ya know, DOable goals.

*I need encouragement ... and accountability. Are you seeing a trend.

*I need something I can finish.

*BABY STEPS. I need BABY STEPS people!!!!

So, here is what I'm gonna do. Linda (AKA Lidna ... don't ask) over at 2nd Cup of Coffee is havin' a little encouragement/accountability/get up and move/baby step/short term goals/all very DOable little carnival over at her place. Clearly, you can see why I am intrigued. All of my needs are met!

So, starting tomorrow, all participants are asked to commit to 30 minutes of some kind of activity a day.

PS, TV does NOT count as that activity! (My thumbs, however, are in the best shape of my life thanks to my handy dandy remote control!)

PPS, Cranking up Mamma Mia and singing and dancing along DOES count. Linda, however, is not a fan of the musical (I blame parenting for this sad deficiency in her otherwise lovely persona), so she will most assuredly NOT being doing that!

The commitment is for 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS ... who can't do that?!?!?!

You may , or may not, choose to include your bathroom scale in this endeavor. Your choice. I for one, become obsessed with those little (AKA BIG!!!) numbers, so I may not do that for a while. I really just want my clothes to fit again.

My really cute clothes ... as opposed to the tents that I am currently sporting!

So, if you would like to play along, head on over to Lidna's and sign up! We are all in this together y'all. Let's keep each other motivated!!!

I will be back soon to tell you all about the last few days activities ... so much to share!


7 of ya left some love:

Is it to late to Join up, I took a Break from the computer yesterday and missed this post! Do I have to be local?

Baby steps are the key. I found an exercise show on FitTV that I actually enjoyed for my 30 minutes yesterday. Who knew?
