7 Days in – Update on the 1,500 minute challenge

This month’s challenge is to exercise for a minimum of 1,500 minutes. I am working to accomplish that with trips to the gym, and walking in the neighborhood or at work. Here is my progress through the first 7 days.

1500 chalengeI am on a pace to exercise a total of 1,831 minutes for the month.

At the beginning of the month I decided to try something new. My gym has wifi, so I thought I would watch TV on my phone while I worked out. I initially chose Breaking Bad, with the idea that I would watch all 62 episodes while working out. But, my wife is a chemist, and after one episode I knew she’d like it too, so it is now our show to watch when we want to unwind. Today I decided to take the advice of several friends and family members, and I watched the pilot for Dexter. And, I am hooked. So, that is now my workout TV show for the winter.

How are you doing on your challenge? And what do you do to pass the time when you are on the treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike or whatever you like to use in the gym?

I'd love to read what you think. Feel free to comment. You can do so anonymously if you like, but I'd really like to know who you are if you don't mind. Thank you for reading! :)
