    Yay! I’m fired up and ready to go!

    Okay, I want in on this. My goal is $1500 debt reduction (no excuses this month).

    I also happen to be participating in a fitness contest with some other friends, so I will add my fitness goal here – 365,000 steps logged on my pedometer by the end of May.

    I will attempt to blog about this tonight. If I can just get out of work a wee bit early…

  3. OK, I’m in (I confess b/c Weight Watchers has set up a 5K in my area on 6/6). My goal is to jog at 45 mins 3x a week between now and then and actually show up at the race.

  4. Financial and physical fitness? I love it! What a neat idea. Kudos to you and Single Ma!

    Good luck to everyone participating. Can’t wait to hear how it goes.

    Thanks for the updates! Your enthusiasm is awesome and welcome to Danielle and The Lost Goat.

  6. I am shooting for $300. If I save more that will be an extra added bonus.

    Thanks for the tips from your previous post. Like you suggested, I will take a look at my expenses, take home pay, etc. I know there are some things I can cut back on.

    ok I never came over and said what my goal was. I’m going to try to save as much with the minimum of 1K. Fitness goals are posted on my blog as well 🙂
