The cool, crisp fall days are arriving, ushering in the most dangerous time of the year for waist lines. Now is the time to get 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 October days?

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'm still figuring out how to balance long work days and exercise. This will be a crazy work month for me. Until the election I can expect to work 5 long days (12 hours) and a few hours on the weekends. At least I'll be too busy to even think about Halloween candy!

I'm going to try for 1500 minutes. If I get 20 minutes in on work days and a little extra on weekends I know I can do it!

Goal: 1500
total so far: 752 WORST MONTH EVER

I'm in!

But I'm not sure what my goal is yet... I am supposedly starting to run again in October, but since there is no way I can do that for an hour at a time right now, I might lower my overall total minutes of exercise. Or just aim for running OR yoga OR weights every day... I have to think about this a bit more and get my schedule set...

Goal: ???
Current total:1000

Oct 1 - brisk walking, at least an hour (with some sprinting for a bus!) = 60 min
Oct 2 - XXX :(
Oct 3 - Walking briskly at least an hour = 60
Oct 4 - Walking briskly 25 min
Oct 5 - Walking briskly to the gym & back, 40 min; yoga class 60 min = 100 min
Oct 6 - XXX :(
Oct 7 - Walking briskly to the gym & back, 40 min; pilates class 60 min = 100 min [I am now 5 minutes over HALF WAY to my year-long goal... it's only October, I can still make it, right? :p]
Oct 8 - XXX :(
Oct 9 - Walking briskly to the gym & back, 40 min; yoga class 60 min = 100 min
Oct 10 & Oct 11 :(
Oct 12 - walking briskly to the gym, 20 min, yoga class - 60 min, weighlifting, 20 min = 100 min
Oct 13 - walking, ~40 min
Oct 14 - walking ~ 60 min
Oct 15 - XXX :(
Oct 16 - Walking briskly to the gym & back, 40 min; yoga class 60 min = 100 min
Oct 17 - Lots of moving around, but nothing dedicated so I'm not counting it
Oct 18 - Walking briskly to the gym & back, 40 min; yoga class 60 min = 100 min
Oct 19 -
Oct 20 - 60 min walking
Oct 21 - 60 min yoga class, 15 min walk
Oct 22 - 30 min walk
I went away and stopped documenting, so I can't count anything else :(

Wow, you gals rock!! It's too late for me this month but I knew heading into the election that it would be an issue. Prioritizing anything when working 14 -15 hour days just doesn't work for me. I'll put the November challenge thread up this weekend and I'm going to be back in there with all the big kids!
