1 Million Minutes (or will it blow that out of the water?) with Fit Approach

I signed up (for FREE!) to take part in the FitApproach 1MillionMinutes fitness challenge.  What in the heck is that?  Here is a quick run down from the Fit Approach websiteWho?

WHO
You! Your next door neighbor. Your long lost kindergarten friend. EVERYBODY!

How?

Sign up and track your active minutes. Active minutes can include walking, running, yoga, Pilates, Zumba, dance, kickboxing, weight lifting and much, much more! If you are doing something active (like sweaty worthy), then log those minutes and share your progress towards helping the Sweat Pink community work towards one million minutes!

Why?

We want to inspire, ignite, and encourage everyone to move more.

When?

The #1millionminutes with #sweatpink will begin on June 21, our 4th birthday (squeee!) and end two months later, August 21. Can we do it? Heck yeah, we can!

Prizes?!

But of course! We’ll be revealing our awesome prizes very soon… ;)


The first contest they are running is to complete the Mad Lib below, so I'm doing that in this post! I'll be using my blog, Twitter, and Instagram throughout the 1MillionMinutes challenge to share my progress.  I am joining in a couple days late and that's okay.  You can still join too!


I am so excited to join #1MillionMinutes with #sweatpink! This summer my goal is to do _3000_ (number) minutes of running, hiking, HIIT, kettlebells and yoga (activity), while wearing my favorite _blue__ (color) _InknBurn shorts (noun).
I predict that we’ll _smash_ (Verb) the goal of #1MillionMinutes – we’ll actually hit _1,841,127_ (number) of minutes this summer! I predict that _running_ (activity) will be the top-logged movement.
I’ll get extra minutes in by  running_ (verb) to loops around the driveway to avoid the bears (place)!
My favorite way to get extra minutes in is by hiking (verb) with my munchkins! (person). My dog Cola_(person) is my BEST activity partner because he/she is so ready for adventure! (adjective). Our favorite way to relax post-workout is to drink ice water in the shade.
I tag  ,any other enthusiastic person  ( people) to help us reach #1MillionMInutes… or more!
 
Thanks to some great runs this week, so far I am up to 249 minutes for the challenge. 
How have I been racking up all these minutes?
Wednesday



Monday
 
Sunday
 
plus a HIIT workout and a kettle bell workout. 
anymore questions?  Like...

What kinds of activities count?

Any kind of activities! Whatever your thing is: running, lifting weights, walking, water aerobics, zumba, late night dance parties, if you’re moving, it counts!


What if I forget to track my minutes one day?

That’s okay! Just add them in to today’s count, or you can always log multiple days at once.
Honor system. :)


How do I get win prizes?

Track your minutes, and share, share, share! Use the #1MillionMinutes and #sweatpink hashtags. We’ll also have special extra add-on bonus points hashtags on certain weeks (stay tuned for emails!).
Mostly, just share! Show us how you’re staying active this summer, and encourage your community to join you in racking up those minutes.
