We all have various goals and different fitness levels, there is no wrong or right here whether it be 10 min. a day or walk 3x a week, etc. We tailor our workouts according to our own best individual needs. THe girls here rock and are very supportive so if you should be just starting out don't hesitate .

Still thinking about my minutes......I might say 1200 again or bump up the minimum. Thanks for another great month together

Woo hoo!! I can't wait for next month!!!!!

Thank you to all the ladies in this group! Thanks especially to FSA for keeping us going month after month!

Exercise Goals for this month will pretty much be the same...

Strength Training 3X a Week--I'd REALLY like to change this up!!! So, my goal may change...
Cardio 6 Days a Week--HIIT 3 days and C25K 3 days

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep my scheduled day off...I have been getting antsy on those days so I might just ditch it...we'll see.

Now, off to see if I can convince hubby to let me order the P90X so I can have a new strength training routine for Sept!!! Wish me luck!!!

I have been agonizing over this... and I thought I wanted to go with minutes but I hate to time my workouts like that because I fear they'll become something I feel like I have to do. With that said...

I would like to continue with the c25k.
I would also like to continue Curves 3x per week.
I would like to finally begin doing some real ab work at least 2x per week.

FSA - you're early, you said not until tomorrow! LOL thanks for all you do chickie.

CMo4 - Totally get it, you know you want to, Nello and I are doing it and you want to be cool too don't you? It was my best sleezy teenager drug pusher voice too. But aside from my silliness it is a great workout and I would highly recommend it, not to mention that you'll get all the super fun cardio that's made my swear.

Delphi - holy crap you're my kind of insanity hun

Dcapulet - welcome back, awesome job pushing through the hard stuff last month, really great

SG - So glad you're back on board, whatever you're doing it sure is working.

So I'm going to start my P90X on Monday and my official goal for those keeping track is to complete P90X, Doubles, Training Block 1. Which just means I'm doing the P90X program with my running M-W-F as well. Good times!

Alrighty then, I am new to the exercise thing and feel a little nervous sticking my toe in this thread.

I have a lot to learn and figure I should start slow, so I will commit to 20 minutes a day. I am not sure what I will do in those 20 minutes as of yet but I still have a day to figure it out. Maybe I should start with something like the treadmill, seems easy enough and not overly scary =)

So I guess that works out to 600 minutes for the month of September. Doesn't seem like a lot but I guess it is 600 minutes more then I moved in August, lol.

Looking forward to learning a lot from you girls!!

Tummy~ Drug pusher voice! Bwahahaha! Okay, so I was looking at the program again last night and I don't want to have to shell out all the cash on the system plus the resistance bands and pull up bar and and and...so what do you REALLY need besides the DVDs to be able to do the program?

Welcome to all the newbies! I used to not post as much on the exercise thread, but I'm telling you, this thread really keeps you motivated! So, even if you don't post--be sure to read this thread! Seeing all these wonderful ladies working their tails off and all the minutes and miles adding up is a fantastic motivator!!!!!

Here's to a great month together ladies!!!

Hi everyone!
I would like to join you this month. My goal will be to get 15 to 20 minutes in 3 times a week or at least 45 min a week. I know it's not much but it's a start.
