I've been in such a funk lately and I REALLY want to start October off right by trying to get in some sort of exercise at least 4 to 5 days a week. ( Every single day would be ideal) Even if it's only 30 minutes a day. Soooo today I did 2 Mile WATP. Hey, it's a start....

It's more than I've done so far today!

My weigh-ins are on Mondays and so far I've managed to exercise everyday!

Today - 60 min elliptical (10 warmup, 40 HIIT, 10 cooldown. I sweated so hard I literally had salt crystals on top of my collarbones. Is it wrong to be proud of that?)
30 min AM Yoga

Not wrong to be proud of it. I didn't know you could form salt crystals!

I noticed that you have 10 minutes to go for your exercise goal.

01 - 50 min bike to work and back
02 - 6000 m/35 min, mostly HIIT, on the rowing machine
03 - 30 min yoga, 12 min HIIT on the treadmill
04 - 90 hours or so hiking; 2 hours or so walking downtown at Nuit Blanche
05 - 12 min HIIT on the treadmill, 4000m HIIT on the rowing machine10 min yoga/stretching
06 - 50 min bike to work and back; 45 min at the bosu sculpt class in the gym
07 - 50 min bike to work and back; about 30 min walking downtown
08 - 50 min bike to work and back; about 15 min walking
09 - 50 min bike to work and back; 45 min at a hi/low class at the gym, which totally kicked my butt!
10 - 50 min bike to work and back; 45 min yoga class at the gym

11 - 24 On vacation with Mom. Walked around most of every day while I was in Paris, for a week; rented a bike in Versailles and biked for an hour or so with Mom (highly recommended, btw); went on a 20-minute run one day, and some French joggers totally checked me out ; did a battlefield tour in Northern France and walked less, but walked downtown to get dinner still. The only day I didn't do anything was the 24th, when I flew back, spent 2 hours getting to the airport, 3 hours waiting to board the plane, and 9 hours on the plane (long day, but I was too tired to exercise!).

25 - (Recovering from jet lag) Walking to the market and back; walking to grocery store and back, total about an hour
26 - 3 x 10 min intervals running on the treadmill
27 - Bike to work and back, about 50 min; and 45 min BoSu class at the gym that totally kicked my butt
28 - Bike to work and back, about 50 min; about 20 min walking
29 - Stability ball class at the gym (snow was forecast, since it's colder than usual, so I didn't bike today--I still need to buy a mountain bike for winter) and the instructor kicked my butt. And, to my mortification, mocked me when I couldn't hold the core position even though I working hard with great form. "And if anyone cheats, we're doing another set of 8!" Hahaha, mortifiyingly hilarious...
30 - Bike to work and back, about 50 min; 45-min hi/low class at the gym, which was a total butt-kick
31 - Bike to work and back; about 20 min walking

(Note for the curious: I'll be on vacation from October 10 to 24 and probably won't be updating my exercise if I do manage to find internet access. But I intend to be walking most places when I'm gone, and I'll be thinking of this thread and all of you while I'm walking off my vacation food!)

High Intensity Interval Training. I didn't see a sticky on it, but I know there are lots of threads. Basically, you exercise for about 20 minutes: warm up for 5, then go at your absolute max (not saving any energy, because, y'know, it's only 15 minutes at this point) for about a minute....then go at an easier pace for a minute or two...then at your absolute max for a minute... and so on.

If you really go at your max, you will be *exhausted* at the end of this session. And apparently the benefits last longer than regular exercise does.

For me the main benefit is: only being on a gym machine for 20 minutes, because the machines make me crazy in a way that running in the great outdoors doesn't.
