Very very cool - my fitness goals this month are to move (on purpose) for at least 15 minutes everyday. I've got a long way to go fitness-wise and am taking baby steps. I already subscribe - thanks for the opportunity and the motication.

remodelingthislife said...

Wow!! Cool giveaway! I am already subscribed, does that count? :)

My fitness goals for the month are to drink more water - 24 more ounces per day - and to exercise for 2 hours per week, hopefully 4 30 minute runs. Starting small.

FitMom said...

Awesome giveaway!!

Fitness goals for the month are to continue stretching WELL daily. I have a big half marathon in 2 weeks and I'd really like a pr.

Kara said...

Cool prize! I could use a new pair of shoes!!!

My goal for the month is to stick with my half marathon training schedule - 3 runs a week (one REALLY long - at least for me). By the end of the month I hope to have run my longest run yet - 8 miles. I'm also running the Nike Human Race 10k on the 31st.

LobotoME said...

Lisa - 5 pull-ups- holy cow!

I don't think I've attempted a pull up since gym class in high school (and if I recall, wasn't very successful at it then!)

You go girls!

xo, jenny :)

sphinx63 said...

My fitness goals this month are to ride my bike every day, unless the weather isn't cooperating. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Huguette said...

My fitness goal is 20 min jogging on the treadmill and lots of gardening, at least 4 times per week.

I'm already subscribed.

Shopica said...

My goal is to hit 500 minute of exercise this month. I KNOW I can do it, but I've never actually gotten to 500. This is a great giveaway!

Katie R said...

I'm traveling a lot for work this week so I'll be sitting down a TON. My goals are to be intentional about my walking speed while in Chicago and to stretch while stuck on the bus. I barely seem to have time to exercise during a normal week but during weeks where I work between 50 and 60 hours, it is even closer to impossible.
I subscribed!

lovely lindsay said...

since there is a baby bean growing in my belly it's even more important for me to get on the ball here. due to this gigantic lack of energy my fitness goals for the week are simple.
*stick the 'lil boy in the stroller and go for a good long morning walks - breathe fresh air and get moving.
*and streeeeeeeeetch!
++++
what a fantastic giveaway. of coarse i already subscribe to the lobotome blog feed and i appreciate the daily inspiration that comes my way from here. thank you!

robyn said...

my fitness goals this month? to try to work out at least once a week. i know, pretty wimpy, but i'm in school full time at the end of a harsh semester, working full time, and in the midst of some pretty serious home improvements, so it's about all i can handle this month. but it's my goal none the less.

LobotoME said...

Great goals everyone! Remember it is about what works for YOU! If you are just getting started, ease into it with a daily walk...start adding some time/distance/hills or speed to it. Drink lots of water!

Katie R - Try doing some stretches & core exercises on a towel or yoga mat in the hotel room at night. Or make it a point to spend 20-30 minutes at the hotel fitness center each evening. Take the stairs everywhere you go! It's amazing what fitness you can {build} into everyday situations.

Lindsay - Congrats on the little baby on the way - walking & stretching are great! Check out www.gotogabby.com for some safe pregnancy workouts!

Robyn - Every little bit counts! Just schedule it in!

Thanks everyone for your great comments & ideas! YOU CAN DO IT!

ps - These sneakers RULE! I wear mine everyday!

Maureen said...

So cool! My two goals: incorporate more strength training during the week; get in consistent 35-40 miles per week for a fall marathon

Hannah said...

My fitness goals this month are to get back to being consistent with my running instead of just fitting it in and causing unneeded stress. And to strength train 2x a week. I suck at adding in strength training and need to just bite the bullet and do it.

Adding you to my reader now :)

Kat - Taylor Made designs said...

wow, what a great give-a-way!

For August I have decide to increase my daily morning 3 mile walk with my dogs TO a 4.5 mile walk. I'm off all my meds so this will really help with my weight loss goals + increasing my fitness. So far, so good! But boy could I use some new sneakers :)

Kat - Taylor Made designs said...

oh, I'm already a longtime subscriber to your blog :)

LobotoME said...

Hi Kat - Glad you are feeling better (especially withOUT the meds)!

Hi Maureen - I ASPIRE to be a RUNNER like YOU!

J :)

jess @ lost button studio said...

Wow...who wouldn't love this? Oh, and I subscribe to your blog already...

My fitness goals are to continue to walk twice a week for an hour with my friend and do the exercise bike/strength/stretching on the other days. I'm expecting so it's nothing super strenuous.

As far as eating I try to have fruits/veggies with every meal, eat whole grains, and drink lots of water.

LobotoME said...

congrats Jess!

Check out www.gotogabby.com for some great, safe pregnancy workout ideas!

Patti said...

My fitness goal this month is to stop finding excuses for a) making a goal and 2) just doing it. Seriously...no more trips to the snack machine at work, take the stairs, fill my water bottle twice a day, break a sweat 3-4 times a week and hug my kids really, really hard (doesn't that count as strength training) :)

LobotoME said...

Hi Patti! Sounds like a great plan! This is what this month is all about - stopping the excuses and getting MOVING!

J :)

debbiem said...

I started Fit me month last week! I am on a roll but SORE!!!

Darcy said...

Cool! My fitness goals for the month (well and the rest of my life) are to loose the baby belly that I still have from my 17 month old. The belly needs to get toned so the lower back doesn't hurt and I need to lose some extra pounds! This should keep me busy!

j ><> said...

oh gosh. well for ONE, my goal is to work out each morning. my husband & i purchased p90x awhile back & i'd like to get into a regular routine each morning at the slit-eyed hour of 5am :) for TWO, i'd like to be more conscious of my carb intake & make better choices w/ complex carbs. and THIRDLY, i'd like to look in the mirror & remember that i'm doing the best i can :)

dmoms said...

I could always use new running shoes.

my fitness goals this month - strength train 3-4 days a week
along with my everyday cardi0 (run, bike, stepmill).

and, somewhat strange goal - take one day off a week from exercise and not feel guilty about doing so.

quitecontrary1977 said...

i want to run 2 miles, 3 days a week and squeeze in some yoga 2 days a week for flexibility!

I subscribed!

LobotoME said...

Welcome Mary!

Denise - I think one day off is great - your body/mind knows what it needs...Listen to it! :)

Infinity Quilter said...

My goal has been to walk between 1-3 miles at least 4 days a week. I've been drinking water instead of soda.

Good luck on you goal!

Sarah said...

My fitness goal this month is to try and go for a walk with my babies at least twice a week around the neighborhood. I know it's not much, but I'm taking baby steps.

last month I walked at least three days a week, this month I want to increase that to at least 4 days a week and longer, faster paced walks.

I haven't done anything until last month for a loooonnnngggg time so I'm getting back into the groove at a pace my body will tolerate :)

JW said...

:) I'm so excited AND I just can't hide it...

GOALS...

Focus on eating clean at every meal. Drinking my water and taking my supplements. My goal is to do something EVERYDAY, work on being consistent. If all I can do one day is go for a 15 minute walk then so be it - GET MOVING and make it a priority! :)

I'm busting out my fitME Planner!

Sarah said...

my goal is to use my fitME planner and actually follow through with what I've written down. Oh, and to get up earlier so I can squeeze a run or yoga in early.

Amanda said...

I really could use a new pair of sneakers. I started running again. My goal is to jsut become healthier and of course drop a few pounds. thanks

blueviolet said...

My fitness goals this month are to add some new types of exercise into my routine. I tend to fall back on doing the same thing all the time and I need to change up the routine to keep my body guessing and working hard.

bikiniyogini said...

I want to look the same when I sit as I do when I stand. Know what I mean? Since having my baby I'm back to thin but not exactly strong. I need to tighten it all up!

Sarah S said...

my goal is to start slowly, but exercise at least 5 times a day. I'm 15 weeks prego and basically had to take the first 3 months of pregnancy off because I was so sick (and tired all the time). Now I'm back and hoping to stay in shape.

lorenzstudio said...

What a great giveaway!

I've been exercising consistently 3 times a week but this month's goal is going to be 5 times a week. I just can't believe how much better I feel when I make exercising a priority!

Now I'm off to subscribe to your blog feed!

Awesome fitness ideas from all the commenters!
My fitness goal this month is to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather by taking brisk walks through some of the trails throughout my city. I have loaded up my mp3 player with some great music and I am ready to start this weekend!

windycindy said...

Greetings! I am entering your contest for my husband. He has finally taken his health and losing weight seriously. He has begun to ride his bicycle on the trails and is really watching his caloric intake. If the weather is inclement, he rides the exercise bike in our basement. I would love to surprise him with this wonderful prize package to further encourage him. Thanks, Cindi

Missy said...

I have a newborn baby and really need to lose the baby weight. I am very out of shape, so I need to start small. I just started attending a Zumba class twice a week and now I'm going to add walking/running MWF. I could sure use the new shoes!!! Even if I don't win, thanks for motivating me to make this goal!

Since it's been hot, we've missed out walking w/the mommies group. My goal for this month is to walk w/the group at least once a day, whether it be in the morning or night.

tmarieb said...

I am sooo far off of my typical exercise/movement pattern. This month, I will reset my internal clock back so I get up early on a daily basis and can get a workout done 3x/week. I also will try a new DVD each week (yoga, tai chi, qigong, etc). Thanks for the kick I needed to get started!

Carolyn Bahm said...

WOW - great giveaway! My fitness goal this month is to use the stairs instead of the elevator to get to and from my fourth-floor office. Every little bit helps, right? I'm also on Weight Watchers and have lost 19 pounds so far; my next weight milestone is 26 lbs. lost.

noreen said...

my goal is to run every other day

Amy said...

My fitness goals for this month are to walk at least 4 days each week, and to practice Yoga twice a week. I am not good about keeping up with my walking when the weather is hot, so I am hoping for some cool weather!
