Move it on Monday

The Mondays Campaign, the people behind Meatless Mondays —which encourages folks to go vegetarian once a week for health purposes — know that a healthy Monday starts your week on the right foot. Now, they’re thinking beyond diet by introducing a free, interactive, web-based fitness program called Move It Monday. The plan comprises workout podcasts with illustrated instructions (no gym required), plus mileage, weight and physical activity trackers so you can keep tabs on your progress.
