Default OCTOBER exercise challenge!!!

Ok, so September was a month of many changes (school/work/fall/whatever) but October is coming up and it's time to get back in the game...

I've done workout challenges before, but I find it "challenging" to stay motivated on a three month plan, and to maintain records with it, so I decided that I would try a month by month challenge!

Sooooo... If you'd like to participate, copy and paste the following into your own response, fill it in, and update it (by editing your post rather than posting a new message) as you go!

I'm in!

Exercise Goal:
***Main goal: Work out 5 days a week***
-Continuous cardio: 30-60 minutes/session
-Strength training (at least 3 days a week): Focus on arms, back/sides (hyperextensions), and abs
-Bonus at home: Try out circuit weight training, squats, and lunges (Things I don't want to try to figure out at the gym in front of other people)


OCTOBER

1 - Gym. 45 minutes X Trainer. Worked arms.
2 - Gym. 60 minutes X Trainer. Worked arms & back.
3 - Gym, 60 minutes X Trainer & arms. At home, abs & lunges.
4 - Gym, 60 minutes X Trainer & arms. At home, girly pushups (30) & lunges.
5 - Gym, 50 minutes X Trainer & arms. Nothing at home (my abs were really sore today for some reason, and I have a wedding to go to tomorrow. Don't want to be sore when dancing!)
6 - Planned rest day for a wedding!
7 - No exercise
Hit my goals for week #1!
8 - At the gym, 60 minutes X Trainer & arms. At home, abs & lunges. Abs were surprisingly painful...side note to go easy on those.
9 - No exercise. Plus...Oreos. :/ Tomorrow will be better!!
10 - 60 minutes Cross trainer & arms, nothing at home.
11 - No exercise, babysat & made food for the potluck @ work tomorrow.
12 - 60 minutes cross trainer, arms, back & sides.
13 - No exercise
14 - No exercise
Didn't meet weekly goals.

15 - 30 minutes cross trainer on a higher resistance, full body strength training
16 - 60 minutes cardio, no strength training because a trainer sort of chewed me out and said I needed to wait a couple of days in between. Fine...
17 - 30 minutes cardio on a higher resistance, full body training. I need to make sure the 30 minutes doesn't become a habit!!!
18 - No exercise
19 - No exercise
20 - Circuit training/strength training
21 - No exercise
Didn't meet weekly goal for cardio.
