Physical activity is important for a healthy lifestyle. There are tools which can help monitor and record physical activities of varying degree. It can be as simple as walking around the block to participating in a triathlon. Everyone has different experience levels and different stages when it comes to working out.


I find the most difficult thing about exercise is motivation and time management. It can be easily put off due to a busy and changing schedule. Sometimes we look for an opportune time to start: New Years, finding a workout buddy, bad visit to the doctor. If that is what you’re waiting for, then it just might not come. The best thing to do is to just start.


Staying motivated is also difficult as you face difficult times: by not seeing results fast enough, breaking past a goal or dealing with pain from exercising. Set small but attainable goals and reward yourself. Another great motivational tool is competition. Compete with friends to stay motivated to see who can lose the most weight, or run a 5k the fastest because, let’s face it, no one likes to lose.


This is where Honor comes in! During the last half of Summer July 31, 2018 - August 31, 2018, we are launching a “Get Fit with Honor” contest. Where, as a community, we work together to live a more healthy lifestyle and get back into shape or just to improve our fitness level. This is not a place to put each other down, but a positive place to encourage and push each other to improve ourselves.


We will have multiple categories which you can participate in (but can only participate in one).

Be honest with yourself when it comes to the Road Runners or the Neighborhood Strollers. Push yourself, dare to try new things



Road Runners: For users who run 30+ miles a week

Neighborhood Strollers: For users just starting out walking or jogging

Peddling to victory: For those who enjoy bike riding

Slimming down: For users wanting to focus on losing weight


How to Participate

Simply create an account, then after every exercise; screenshot the results and post the screenshot in this thread with what group you want to be apart of. If you use a treadmill, elliptical, cycling machine, then take a photo of your results following your workout. Your workout screenshots must contain: the date/time, distance and duration. (You do not need to use a Honor phone or fitness band to participate).


For Slimming down, first share your current weight as a baseline and to indicate you’ll be participating in this group. Share a photo of the scale that includes the current date, time and your weight.


Winners

Each group will have a winner. You can only win once


Winners of each group will be based on points acquired for each exercise. For every mile biked/ran/walked or pound lost, you’ll receive 1 point (no partial points for unfinished whole miles). For every half hour you exercise, you’ll also receive 1/2 point. For example, if you walk 3 miles and it takes you 1.5 hours, you will receive 4.5 points.


A random winner will be selected at the end of contest. Every point you earn, grants one entry into the random drawing.



Prizes

Winner of each group- Honor 7x

End of contest random winner- Honor View10

I go walking around my neighborhood and the town all the time. It's a great way to get some exercise.

So, I'm going to be starting in the Slimming Down group. I've needed to get into better shape (any shape) for years. Due to some health issues, I've gotten to a pretty bad low for myself. I usually get out of breath just getting out of bed. Motivation is my worst enemy! Here with a late start, but better late than never!

So, my first attempt at exercise in about a decade.  I walked/jogged around my living room.

I thought I posted this as well, but didn't see it. If I did, sorry for the repost. This was yesterday's excercise. Will be doing today's later.

Not quite as good tonight. I screwed up and had a bit too much dinner. It was a healthy one, but, still... Too much of a good thing and all of that.

Can I join the Peddling to victory group if I ride a stationary bike? I do both indoor and outdoor cycling, but I tend to ride more indoors. This sounds fun and it's nice to have an incentive to get my butt out of bed in the morning.

Today's excercise, just finished up. This is tougher than I remember.

So, today I'm under the weather, but I made myself do it anyway. Went farther than I expected, but dang... I'm feeling a bit of regret for it now.

Feeling a bit worse today. Hopefully I'll get over this tomorrow and pick the numbers up. Isn't this supposed to get easier, not harder? Whew! Anyway, here's tonight's session. (I have started the upper body as well, just can't track that)

Not sure if I'll be able to exercise today. This bug has gotten me. Hoping it goes away soon. Just in case I can't exercise tonight, thought I'd show an update on the weight. 7lbs. since I started.

Made myself do it today anyway. I'm trying to convince myself this is what I need. No pain no gain, right? Not as much as I'd like, but here are tonight's results.....
