    I'd like to join for this year if possible. My fitbit won't sync to my phone any more, not sure if it's a phone problem or a fitbit problem, so I'll try to fix it, but I do have an activity tracker in my phone so I'll try to use that instead.

    My plans this year are to be active 4 days a week, be that gym, walking, yoga or horse riding as these are my main go-to's. In terms of horse riding I ride once a week and would like to ride 200km throughout the year and also school once a month.

    Am hoping this challenge will keep me on the straight and narrow and hold me accountable.

    Hi re the fitbit sync have you updated the app on your phone as this might be a prob. Just a thought.
    I am going to be much fitter this year - I am currently doing Couch to 5k at the gym and am into week 6. Have never been able to run but actually did 20 mins straight off a couple of days ago! So pleased and the app is amazing - considering I am no spring chicken! Also doing RPM bike classes, weights class and aqua each week. Think this is deffo my year to achieve. Good luck to all in any endeavours.
    Free films - 2009: saw 7 films. 2010 saw 7 films. 2011 saw 7 films. 2012 saw 5 films;2013 saw 7 films; 2014 and 2015 saw 1 in each. Nothing since!

    I'm not settling any specific targets this year but will keep moving as much as I can by dog walks, Nordic walking and walking wherever possible instead of taking car but I do live right out in the countryside. Have also set up a standing desk for work.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    Standing desk going well. Have been dog walking, Nordic walking and dancing since my last post. Tried a new walking group today but it's not for me - too slow. However, I met new people and now have details of other groups to try.
