Hi everyone, I'm new here. I want to try one new class at the gym each week in August. And I want to play tennis at least two times per week.

I also want to find an exercise buddy. Does anyone have any suggestions on finding a workout partner??

ok, this month I'm in for the excersise thread as well. I really really need some help in this department.

my goals are -

1 - ride my bike for at least 45min twice a week (on my days off work)

2 - get off the tube a stop early and walk home from there every day that I am working (about 30 min)

I look forward to seeing how everyone else gets along with their excersise!
Have a happy August!

HI girls : )...........nice to see everyone.

Beck, JessicaLovely, dcapulet, merose,and Darby1 and wb girls.

Pucedaisy........sounds like great goals to me! I love to walk as well.

Jessica...not sure about finding a partner for the gym, you never know..maybe you will meet a workout partner there : ). On a positive note, when you rely on no one else but yourself there is nothing impeding your workout. ANyhow.......you just made a whole bunch of workout buddies

I will be adding you to the list girls. BBL

Crazymama, NSM, Delphi.......lol girls Oh delphi, I am thankful I am not EA active you are too funny!

Walk with my dog and children 5 days a week. My poor doggie will be in heaven!

I will be joining in, making my goals simple this time as I think I get too complicated and then feel overwhelmed! I want to do yoga every day, and make sure I do 60 minutes of cardio 3x a week.

My goal for August:

Mornings:
Firm Wave 5 days/week- alternating strength training and cardio every other day.

Evenings:
Walk 60 minutes 3 days/week

No "dieting"...however, I will drink at least 64 oz of water/day and keep my calories betwee 1200-1350

Good luck girls!
