    So, I have to burn over 31,000 calories this month and it’s freezing outside. What is Apple challenging you to do?

    I haven't gotten a personal challenge yet. I didn't get one for December or this month so far.

    My challenge is 1005 exercise minutes. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a PUBG workout so I’m pretty much hosed.

    Mine is 214.5 miles. I added up my December numbers and it was about 185, with November at 195, and 190 in October. So over a 10% increase over my 3 month average, this is going to be a tough one.

    Where in Alaska? I’m in Soldotna.

    Last month I had to go 147.2 miles. I made it on December 30, and ended up just over 151. It tracks your everyday walking and movement toward that goal.

    For January, I have to burn 28,109 calories, which averages out to just under 907 per day. The area code for Alaska is 907. Coincidence??

    My goal for my move ring the past few weeks has been 630. This morning it asked me to up the ante to 690. I compromised at 650. And it is now 907 pm and I’m only at 349 so far today. I better hit the treadmill.

    Why don't you try going out a few times a day? I just went out at midnight and got in three miles when it's 16F outside. It's a really calm night so it wasn't bad walking. I just put on some really great gloves and my coat and went out. I enjoyed the walk.

    Well, right now it’s -8 F without the windchill. Hoping for warmer weekends as I do have a fitness center at work.

    Mines gone from burn X calories during the month (December) to average X calories per day during the month. (January)

    I had hoped for a bit of variety in the challenge!

    I only just did December on 31st and it was my most active month ever. I don’t see any chance of hitting January’s target :(

    Mine is "Average at least 80 Exercise minutes a day." Hopefully I can make that average.

    My January challenge is 1,228 exercise minutes. Last month’s was to average 39 exercise minutes a day which is pretty much the same thing (the new challenge works out as something like 39.6/day).

    Oddly though, when I first checked the January challenge, it was something like burn an average of 742 calories a day but it changed later that day to the current ask. Very strange.

    Yeah, that's a lot more colder them my 16 above. 16 feels like summer compared to -8.

    I think everyone's January challenges are so over the top. Mine is to workout 7 days straight. the only issue is I workout every other day. Guess Apple will not stand for rest days ;p
