    People of webOS Nation, the Mobile Nations Fitness month has begun!

    You can go read all about it on the front page, but here's where the action is taking place. This is where we're setting reasonable, attainable goals. This is where we're starting our pattern for pure win.

    Not sure how to start? Pick just ONE thing from this list and make it you goal for the week. It should be challenging enough that it takes some effort to do it, but not so challenging that you give up before you really get going. Here are some examples.


    • Stop drinking sugary drinks for a week (or beer of that's more your thing).
    • If that's too easy, stop eating fast food/junk food for a week.

    A week is 6 days, you get a cheat day at the end! (whoo!)

    Strength training

    • Do 2 sets of 10 pushups, 10 sit ups, and 10 squats every morning right when you get up.
    • If that's too easy, do 4 sets.

    You can start with 1 set and work up to 2, or 3 sets and work up to 4. The important thing is to get going!

    Cardio training

    • Do 15 min. of cardio, 3 times during the week. It can be running, dancing, martial arts, rope skipping, jumping jacks, anything.
    • If that's too easy, do 20-30 min. at a slightly higher intensity.

    You can run for as long as you can and then walk, for example, if you need to, but you want to try to run -- or do whatever cardio activity you're doing -- for longer each time until you get to the full time.

    Ready...? Set...? GO!

    What's your goal for week 1 going to be? Pick it and stick it in a reply below, then come back every day and let us know how you're progressing! If you're doing well, share your story and help keep us inspired. If you're having trouble, ask questions and we'll be there to help.

    The important thing is to do and to keep doing. Pick something attainable and then attain it!

    My goal is the cardio training. I guess I started early 1/30/12 but I want to walk 10 miles every week.

    My goal is to play raquetball for at least an hour for 2 to 3 time a week, decrease meat intake and increase veggie intake for diet
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    I will try for the cardio goal... What I find is that if I do any exercise I am also more likely to be good about avoiding junk food so it is a win-win

    My goal is to begin using my Couch to 5K app. I am going to complete week 1 successfully, just like I said I would when I purchased the app. Let the fun times roll!
    Current: OnePlus One, Nexus 10
    Retired: Palm Centro, Palm Pre+, HP Veer, HP TouchPad, Samsung Galaxy SIII, Moto X (2013), Nexus 7 (2012)

    Derek's goal by the end of four weeks: Be closer to (if not exceeding) a score of 300 on the Army Physical Fitness Test.

    For those not familiar with the APFT, it consists of 2 minutes of push-ups, 2 minutes of sit-ups, and a 2-mile run. The more sit-ups and push-ups you do and the faster you run, the higher you score. Soldiers are expected to achieve a minimum score of 60 in each category (the scale is adjusted based on age and gender). Here's what the scale looks like right now push-ups, sit-ups, and the run.

    What it boils down to is that for my age - 25 - I have have to be able to do a minimum of 40 push-ups, 50 sit-ups, and run 2 miles in 16:36 minutes or faster.

    Last October I scored a 222, hitting 48 push-ups, 58 sit-ups, and 14:32 on the run. My goal is to "max" the test by April when my National Guard unit is scheduled to test again. Getting there will require me to pump out 75 push-ups, 80 sit-ups, and to knock my run down to 13 minutes flat.

    It's going to be some work, but by golly, I want it. Now if only I could motivate my **** up out of this chair.

    I'm cutting down my portion sizes and eating more fruits and vegetables this week. Starting next week I'll drag my **** out of bed in the mornings to play basketball.

    I'll get in on this. I'll start with nutrition for Week 1 and add as time goes on.

    I'm going to skip fast food and junk food. In the evenings and weekends, I tend to drink Coke like water... so I might as well switch to water itself.

    I'm researching what type of exercise program to do (starting from nothing). Would love to loose this giant spare tire I've been carrying around for a while now. LOL

    Alright, I'm in! For the first week I'll pick Cardio. I had started the C25K program, listening to the podcast on my pre, awhile back. I stopped after week three but I need to get my cardio level up before a little visit I have planned to 9,600' above sea level in June.

    Here are the podcasts I use if anyone else wants to go that route.

    Oh, here is a little "light reading" makes some very good points about fitness in general and is a good read for folks of all genders despite it being published at Men's Journal.

    I’ll tackle the cardio and strength training. My wife is coming back from her semester abroad on the 29th, so I actually have to do something, to get rid of my pizzas and chocolate puddings!
    webOS is simply fabulous

    My 4 week goal is this: I am trying to get closer to a balanced meal, following the food plate the us government is pushing now, although I like this one better because it has more detail and helpful hints.

    So week 1, I am trying to get in more veggies, with more variety. It seems tough to remember to get them in there every day, and they should be the largest of the 4!

    I'm going for the cardio, and giving up the beer too (till I beat the cardio goal and lose 20 pounds minimum). May have to break the beer rule Sunday for the Superbowl

    I decided last week that Feb was gonna be the "get my rear in gear" month. So for this week, I am aiming to do the strength training. (Really I'm aiming for all three.)

    My original goal was 1000 situps/pushups/squats per 30 days, so 35 of each a day. The pushups are going to be the challenge, I have no upper body strength...

    Today I have done them all. Oof.

    Great idea. While it's still winter outside, I'm committed to doing a high intensity 30 minute training video with my bike inside on a trainer 5 - 6 days/week. Afterwards, it's on the floor for several sets of push ups, sit ups, etc. Effective tonight, I have also sworn off cheese, unless it's a special occasion pizza (e.g. Super Bowl, March Madness, etc.).

    2/2: Did it. (though it's doubtful I'll update this post as often as I work out)

    Started working the cardio...hitting the gym all week for about 45 min each day. This month is mainly treadmill jogging and row machines - gotta lose the holiday chumb.

    Nokia (red phone) --> Denso TouchPoint TP2200 --> Samsung SPH-N400 --> (Palm VII) --> Sanyo 5150 --> Palm Treo 650 --> Palm Pre --> Sprint FrankenPre 2 --> (HP TouchPad)/(HP Pre 3 - Wifi) --> Galaxy Nexus (with TS mod and hopes of Open webOS!)
