I commit to spending at least 30 minutes of each day in fresh air engaging in some form of physical activity to help clear my mind and move my body. 

I commit to having some form of physical activity everyday, a walk outside to get the mail or a quick HIIT session in my living room. I also commit to weigh lifting at least 4 times a week and pushing my limits to become a stronger woman. 

Coach at my gym to help those in my community reach their fitness goals and to allow myself to stay active and healthy.

exercise 3 times a week to start at least 30 min

Have joined the gym with my spouse.  Jointly committing to ~150 min of physical activity per week and to be accountability partners with each other.

I commit to a minimum of 30 minutes of yoga each day for 30 consecutive days. My purpose in doing this challenge is to connect with my mind, body, and soul. My hope is that I fall back in love with being physically active and grounded in my body. I know that in challenging myself to do this I will begin to feel better and better manage my stress levels. 

I will be more active during the week, increase exercise time to 30 minutes after work and 2 hours on the weekend. I have gained 20 lbs over the last 6 months. Check how my weight is affected by menopause, assess my hormone imbalance, and increase my exercise, and live a healthier life.

I'm pushing for 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week.

@AnnieG2, I struggle with time as well. Commute to work, school, and then life. I bought a Peloton-ish bike this fall and loved riding it and using the Peloton app (which you can purchase independent of the bike itself) love the instructors for classes, so many options!
