Hey, wait a minute... or 1000...

I was having a think about it...

As mentioned a couple of blogs ago. I've taken on the challenge of doing 1000 minutes of exercise this month... Sounds reasonable enough, doesn't it? Well, hmmmm, I just sat down and calculated what that entails. Basically, it's 1000 divided by 31, which is 32.258064516129032258064516129032... In other words, EVERYDAY I would need to do 32.5 minutes of exercise (rounded of to the nearest half minute)... Hmmmmmmmm... Maybe I should be aiming for half that, then I'd only have to do 32.5 minutes every second day, which is far more within my capability, LOL...

you sound like me.. there is no way I can fo 30 minutes a day.... maybe if I could take the girls for a walk with me everyday I could manage it but that required driving to somewhere I can push the pram and that is just not going to happen EVERY day.
So I am with you... lets aim for 500 minutes a month.... let Leah tackle the big and then tell us her secret of how she does it!

Hey Sif, the Great Australian Diet (which I would personally recommend to anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle but anyway) he suggests weight bearing exercise (like walking ;) ) for 1% of your life which works out to 100 minutes per week or 25 minutes, 4 times per week. That seems pretty doable, yeah?? If you want to borrow the book let me know, he bases his stuff on an Asian culture where nobody is overweight and they have heaps of old (90+) people who are healthy and active...
