Fall is arriving this month ushering in all the scary food related holidays. Now is the time to make sure we have those healthy habits firmly in place. Exercise won't save us from bad food choices but it will help keep us on track and focused. So grab your sneakers, bike, or gym bag and join the challenge What's your exercise plan for the crisp September days? :dancer:

This is a great place for experienced exercisers and newbies so whether your goal is 3000 minutes or 300 minutes if you are a Beacher please join us. Regular exercising is the key to turning exercise into a healthy habit. This is a great place to keep track and stay accountable.

I've been struggling with balance in my life. With work and family obligations it just seems like exercise always gets left off the schedule. I am going on vacation this month though and that will be 8 whole days of biking, walking and kayaking. I'm going to go for 1500 minutes again even though I've fallen far below that all summer. Here's hoping the vacation week will balance out the long work days and I'll end the month with a net gain in exercise minutes and muscle!

*edited to a more realistic number for my current situation. Maybe if it's attainable I'll actually be less discouraged.

Goal: 1500 minutes
total so far: 1772m

My main goal is to keep some of the momentum I have developed this summer in terms of exercise. With school starting back up things get a bit hectic, so I really need to focus on getting my workouts in this month. I am aiming for 1,000 minutes.
