I was doing soooo good in August, and then dropped off the wagon toward the end of the month because of The Big Move Overseas And Everything That Came With It. This time I'll succeed!

Sign me up for 1600 minutes this month. That's what I had last month, and I almost made it - I can do it this month! That will include cardio 5 days/week, weights/strength 3 days/week, and getting my weight to 140 by Dec. 22 (the day I leave for vacation holidays).

Dec 1 - ran 22 min, walked 98 min = 120 min
2 - walked 25 min = 25 min
3 - ran 22 min, walked 27 min, weights/strength 45 min = 94 min
4 - ran 22 min, walked 98 min = 120 min

Total so far: 359/1600

Hello! Can I join you all? I haven't ever done a challenge here before, I think it would be a great motivator though. My biggest struggle with any diet is just consistency and commitment. I know that if I keep doing my exercise, I will stick to my diet better too...

Ok, well for December, I really want to hit 1300 minutes and 50 minutes a day is my goal for the month. (I think it will also get me to bronze in the Presidential Challenge. )



DECEMBER CHALLENGE

December 1: 40 min Walk Away The Pounds = 40
December 2: 15 minutes Yourself! Fitness = 15
December 3: 60 minutes Yourself! Fitness / 30 minutes Walk Away The Pounds = 90

December 5: rest
December 6: rest
December 7: 60 minutes Yourself! Fitness / 12 minutes DDR = 72 min
December 8: 30 minutes Yourself! Fitness = 30 min
December 9: 30 minutes Yourself! Fitness / 50 minutes Walk Away the Pounds 3mi = 80 min
December 10: 30 min Yourself! Fitness = 30 min
December 11: 48 min Walk Away the Pounds 4 mi / 40 minutes Yourself! Fitness = 88 min
December 12: 30 minutes Yourself! Fitness = 30 min
December 13: 30minutes Yourself! Fitness / 80 Walk Away the Pounds (5 mi) = 110 min
December 14: 30 min Yourself! Fitness / 50 Walk Away (3 mi) = 80 min
December 15: rest
December 16: 30 min Yourself! Fitness / 30 min Walk Away (2 mi) = 60 min
