Thumbs up September Exercise Challenge

September always feels like a second New Year to me. What fitness level do you want to achieve in the next few months to a year? What can you do in September to help you get there?

State your goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our exercise goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: September Weight Loss Challenge.

This challenge really helped to keep me on track last month. Without it, I'm sure I would have been lazy many days and would not have done nearly as much!

I will be in Europe for 2 weeks. I hope to do lots of walking when I'm there, although I likely won't be tracking my kilometres. While away, I won't have access to a gym, so I won't be able to do much other exercise. So, this month, my goal will be one-half of last month's goal...although I'm only going to count the days when I'm home in Canada. Whatever walking or other exercise I do while in Europe will just be bonus.

September Goal (excluding Sep 8-21): Walking 75km PLUS 500 minutes of other exercise (workouts, exercise bike, eliptical, etc.)

Exercise is my kryptonite so I can really use this thread to keep me motivated. I'll never need a water thread as I drink like a fish. And I'm usually good on food once I get going. But exercise is my Achilles' heel.

GOALS:
  • Complete lazy man marathon
  • 12 hours cardio
  • 8 hours yard work
  • Be able to do 50 squats in a row
  • Be able to do 2 full on my toes pushups in a row
  • Learn 2 beginner yoga poses

I am so impressed with y'all's goals! I'm just a walker, and with the uncertainty of my tender heel, I'm going to keep it simple. My goal is to walk 30 miles this month. (The walking path in my town is 1.2 miles long, so that means walking it 25 times.)

Thanks, Joy!

I'm getting back into exercising after 6 weeks of not doing much. I'm going to start the 'Drop Two Sizes' program and my goal is to stick with it. I'll be gone for almost a week so that means if I do everything else to the tee I'll complete 14 workouts. So that is my goal for September, 14 Drop Two Sizes workouts.

09/02- P1S1 (70 minutes) 1/13
09/04- P1S2 (55 minutes) 2/13
09/06- P1S1 (55 minutes) 3/13
09/07- P1TM (40 minutes) 4/13
09/09- P1S2 (55 minutes) 5/13
09/11- P1S1 (45 minutes ***no warm up) 6/13
09/14- P1S2 (55 minutes) 7/13
09/15- P1CM (25 minutes) 8/13
