Default Working It In August - South Beach Exercise Challenge


The July heat wave is behind us and there is still more time for summer fun. It's time to put away the excuses and grab your sneakers, bike, kayak, rollerblades or bathing suit. What's your exercise plan for the beautiful August days?
This is a great place for experienced exercisers and newbies so whether your goal is 3000 minutes or 300 minutes if you are a Beacher please join us. Regular exercising is the key to turning exercise into a healthy habit. This is a great place to keep track and stay accountable.



Okay, I'm still not where I want to be. I blamed the heat and being busy but exercise is my secret to healthy muscles that burn fat and keep me centered. I need to get serious this month.

I was just thinking of Exercise target and I saw your post! How mad is that

I am thinking of exercising 10 times in August, whether it is gym session, swimming or dancing, I am gonna try to find the times and do it! It is good for my body to get some exercise every few days!

I am almost ready to start tweaking my goal, but I'll wait till September or October for the real changes. Right now I am still focusing on time invested - my activity for the most part is brisk walking/hiking and 3-5 yoga classes/week. I think I will add another challenge this month: even on days when I don't end up doing much, do something!! (pushups, situps, squats, whatever), even for 10-15 minutes.

ETA: clearly I am nowhere close to ready to tweak my goal. I fell off the wagon completely - work and vacation strike again! I've been exercising - some - but not keeping track. GRRRRRRR.... VERY frustrated with myself.

Goal: 840 min (60 min/day)
Current total: 0
Should be at:60

Aug 1 & 2 - nuttin'
Aug 3 - 40 min walk, 60 min yoga
Aug 4 - 60 min walk
Aug 5 - 40 min walk, 60 min yoga class
------LAPSE-------
Aug 23 - 40 min walk, 60 min yoga

Oh why not!!! My Goal is going to be 1400 minutes. I work out on weekdays only and rest on the weekends usually. I will be walking 1 mile on the treadmill, at least, each day and hopefully doing at least 15 - 20 minutes on the elliptical.

By the way, it may cause some confusion, but I am a night-shifter and I usually work out before work and then maybe again after work. Although it's TECHNICALLY 2 different dates, to me it's not a different day until I've gone to sleep and gotten back up.

Goal: 1400 minutes
Total: 1945 minutes
