So ... what's it going to be? I think mine will be:

a 30-minute walk at least once per week
a 30-minute Gazelle session at least once per week
weights and floor exercises at least once per week

And a minimum of 100 oz. of water

I am not going to stop on the way to work for a Coke.
I am not going to stop on the way home from work and buy beer.

It's gonna be a looooong month. :rofl:

Wow - very ambitious goals!

Froufie's Cruise Goals:

1) Weigh in under 200! by September 8th! (currently Aug 2 weigh in is 211.8)

2) Go to the gym at LEAST 3 times per week, ideally 4!

3) Do morning floor exercise 5 times per week (situps/pushups/leg lifts)

4) Drink at least 50 ounces of water per day!

That should do it!

My goal is 500 minues of exercise. It's low, but I didn't even reach it last month. So I'm trying again, and hopefully I'll exceed it this month!
Also, I would love to be down about 5 pounds.

Probably! I miserably failed in August.

I think we'll probably try to do a mini-challenge every few weeks. Maybe the next one will only last a week and be for ONE stinkin' pound. Of course, that's even a little more than I can manage these days.

Me too. I think I need a DAILY challenge.

i like small term challenges, too, like that 2x2 one that you've already started. i will do a monthly exercise challenge for myself, though, to keep me moving.
