Work Out Wednesday: Crunch Time!

Hello, all you awesome GaGA participants! Anna was going to post this today, but she is busy training her replacement before going to her Awesome! New! Job! so y’all have to put up with my writing again this week.

(Secret note to Ben: Don’t worry, little guy, your post will be up later today — I promise!)

I just opened up Anna’s Master Spreadsheet of Awesomeness, and holy crap have you guys been busy! I am seriously impressed.

Let’s start with last week’s top 5:

  1. Operation Pink Herring — 1,450 (No, that’s not a typo. This newly-engaged chica spent all of last week walking and hiking around Barcelona. To say that I am jealous would be a gross understatement.)
  2. Kat — 450 (Sure, it’s 1,000 less than OPH, but still very impressive!)
  3. KM — 410
  4. Alayna — 365
  5. -R- — 335

Anna and I were active for 215 and 275 minutes respectively. Deidra went back to school last week, which kept her a bit too busy to workout, but she is already making room in her schedule for more activity this week. Plus, I think it’s fair to say that OPH worked out enough for the both of them, don’t you think?

All together, we were active for a total of 3,395 minutes this week. We are so awesome.

The ever-helpful pie-chart breakdown:

The standings for the month as of January 20 are as follows:

  1. Operation Pink Herring — 2645
  2. KM — 1555
  3. Kat — 1391
  4. Alayna — 1125
  5. -R- — 1027

Anna, Deidra, and I are at 736, 945, and 950 respectively.

The grand total of activity minutes thus far in January is a whopping 15,536. Y’all. That is a lot of minutes!

Last week we discussed potential prizes for the month’s winner(s). With your help, the three of us have come to an agreement on what the prize(s) will be. Trust me, it’s going to be Awesome. I’m going to keep the decision a secret for now, but all will be revealed next week: prize(s), winner(s), and some other awesome stuff too.

This week, answer me this: Of all the ways you’ve gotten active so far this month, what has been your absolute favorite form of activity? For me, it’s my Monday night Tap class. What’s yours?

I’d also like to send a shout-out to all the non-GaGA readers out there. I get the feeling that you’re a little jealous of how much fun we’ve all been having this month, am I right? Well, have I got news for you! This Friday marks the beginning of a new month, which means the beginning of a whole new round of GaGA — and we want you to join us! Everyone’s minute totals will reset to zero on the 1st, so now is the best time of all to join the fun. You’ll have just as fair a shot at winning an Awesome prize next month as everyone else, and participating is as easy as working out and sending the occasional email. Getting active has never been so AWESOME!

Leave us a comment or shoot us an email — mondayminutes [at] gmail [dot] com — and let us know that you’re interested. You know you want to!
