Week 4 of Challenge

Here's our goal for Week 4:
Week 4: Continue Week 3 habits. Add: Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week. This can be as simple as brisk walking. The goal is to raise your heartbeat. If you're feeling a good cardio workout, working up a sweat, increased heart rate, it counts. Also, the more that you can vary your exercise routine the better. So, do cardio one day and weights another. Try different forms of exercise (i.e. an elliptical one day and swimming another). Try to establish a routine. If you must, you can split this into three 10 minute segments for a total of 30 minutes.
However, my question is: Is this too easy for us? All of us are already exercising at least 30 minutes per day, aren't we?  Problem is, I don't know what else we might set as an alternate goal for the week. Any ideas?


  1. Yes, that is the problem with this one being at Week 4. For most of us who are getting ready for the H140, we're already doing the 30 mins/day thing. Maybe it can be as simple as "Learn or try a new exercise," or "Set a higher goal for yourself than you think you're capable of," like biking 30 miles instead of 25, or something like that. *shrug*

  2. Maybe it can be a week to work on keeping to integrate the other three things into our daily lives, even as we're also exercising. Have we tried a new recipe yet? (I haven't.) Are we still tracking our food intake? Um...
