:carrot: OK here we go! The holidays will be here soon. Now is a good time to incorporate a little fitness into our lives. The weather is cooling off so enjoy a walk, hike, run or ride. Try a little Zumba or Pilates to get ready for holiday dancing. Whatever you decide a little movement goes a long way. :carrot:

Jekel, I hate the word skinny - skinny is ugly so I'm on board for strong.

I've just renewed my gym membership so here's my schedule:
Monday - Wednesday - Friday I'll be at the gym 7:30 to nine doing treadmill and weights on the machines. Alternate days except Sunday I'll make myself do either two ten minute sessions on my treadmill here at home or walk outside for 20-30 minutes.

Last month's goal was 6 out of 7 days; I made that 3 of 4 weeks and 2 of those weeks it was 7 days.

I just purchased a rebounder and my goal is to use it for at least 30 minutes every other day, alternating with a kettle bell workout (22 minutes of workout plus another 10-15 for warmup, cooldown, and stretch) the other days, for 6 days a week. I've been at the kettle bell for over a week now and my husband says that key areas are starting to feel a bit firmer :)

I have to confess that I stole the idea of the monthy exercise challenge and brought it to my forum. Last month we only had 2 participants (myself included, LOL) for most of the month. This month, however, we have a weight loss challenge going on and I have 5 participants for the exercise challenge. I'm just copying and pasting my post there to here.

My goal for this month is 1500 minutes and 2500 crunches.

Goal: 1500 minutes + 2500 crunches
Total so far: 1550 minutes + 1950 crunches

1 - 90 minutes walking + 30 minutes dancing

2 - 150 crunches + 50 reverse crunches
3 - 200 crunches + 60 minutes at the gym
4 - 60 minutes at the gym
5 - 150 crunches + 50 reverse crunches
6 - Rest Day.
7 - 50 minute walk home
8 - 150 crunches + 60 minutes at the gym

9 - 60 minutes at the gym
10 - 150 crunches + 50 reverse crunches + 60 minutes at the gym
11 - 50 minutes DanceFit Class+ 50 crunches (just guessing, it was core during DanceFit) + 60 minutes at the gym
12 - 150 crunches + 50 reverse crunches
13 - 60 minutes at the gym
14 - Rest Day.

22 - 65 minutes walking the Riverwalk + 50 minutes pushing around 100+ pounds of groceries

23 - 65 minutes walking the Riverwalk
24 - 150 crunches + 50 reverse crunches + 60 minutes at the gym
