I'm going to keep posting daily, rather than editing a previous post as so many of you are doing...if no one makes new posts and everyone edits, this thread is going to become deeply buried and hard to find!

Today - 60 min strength training, 50 min elliptical.

Good point. I'll update my initial post as I go, because I like to see the whole month's progress lined up, but I'll make new posts with updates too.

01 - 45 min cardio/stability ball/resistance
