  • Hi there ladies : ) Today is the 2nd so I figured we best get our thread up! Happy holiday, hope your having a great weekend.

    All are welcome, so anyone who would like to join in, please do! We simply state our exercise goals for the month and post a daily record of what we did that day. FOr those of you not familiar with how we do it, it may be helpful to take a peek in the August ex. thread. We typically state our goals in minutes, though it doesn't matter how we do it. Whatever works best for each of us is key. When I first joined in Feb. I wasn't accustomed to the minute thing and plus I wanted to break down my workouts by the week (also I was just starting out ex. after a loooong moratorium) and simply stated what I would do on a weekly basis or how many times.

    Jas and dea, I look forward to being here with you and everyone else who joins in. I saw your messages in the last thread, thanks girls! : )
    After being pretty much of a slacker most of last month and what I feel was falling off my ex. wagon, I vowed to get right back to it this month! Yesterday I did a lot of heavy cleaning for 5 1/2 straight and though I typically do not post this as traditional ex. I am going to give myself one hour on sep. 1 to give myself that boost for a first day start up. As for today, not feeling too good with tom so it remains to be seen.

    Jasmine, I am sorry for your loss lady... .looking forward to seeing you here in thread, you are doing absolutely awesome...both of you! keep on truckin ladies

I think that will be best for the kids especially after all the court/drama stuff their dad did the last few years.

  • Hi Fullsteam and jcatron! Haven't been here in forever! How are y'all doing? Hi everyone here!! Been gone for months, but I'm back so I'm really excited to get moving!

    I hit my goal for the last 8 days. My goal is four miles a day in steps, which is approx. 8000. I'll go up to around 10k or 12k on days I have time and feel up to it. Also I'm doing some kind of toning every day.

    These goals are for 7 days a week. I get bored if I take one off and feel yukky (like I've been feeling since I stopped doing it every day). Plus to do mine, I don't have to go anywhere so it's not too hard to do. I am going to allow one day of only half or so tho because on days I'm gone in my car all day I'm not walking enough to hit it.

    Thanks for starting the September thread!
  • wow....nice to see so many on this thread!!!
    Sorry to be M.I.A. this weekend....we were away at a baseball tourny ( my son's team won the provincial championships for their division, and then with friends for the rest of the weekend...home just in time to get ready for school. goal for Sept is 1200 again. I will be settling into a new routine now that I am back at work, so I think 1200 is a good starting point. I am going to aim for 6 cardios and 4 strength training a week.
    I didn't do much (nothing actually) for the past two days....I need to get out for a walk/jog once the laundry is in.
    Here's to a great first week of Sept!!!

    Sept 1: 40 min bike ride, 50 min walk/jog
  • I will join you this month......My goal is 1000 minutes

    Sept 1 Walked dog 25 minutes
    Sept 2 Walked at mall 30 minutes
    Sept 30 Treadmill 30 minutes

  • HI! Im glad to see so many people I know still here (or coming back). Ive been around, just not able to post much. My workouts disinegrated but I am slowly getting back to them.

    I have been maintaining at 160 since about April/May I eat around 1400 cals a day (most days) and I walk alot at work (I a normal day puts me between 8-12 miles in a 12 hour period). I am ready to lose again, but I am not fooling myself, I am going to lose slowly. My goal right now is 36 pounds in 36 months. (I am going to disneyland in 3 years) BUT I want to get myself back into the exercise habit! ITs actually easier than I thought it would be. So far I have kept my goals!

    Happy Healthy one!
  • Hi everyone! Glad to be here this month with y'all. 8000 steps are roughly 4 miles. I want to do this each day, with some being more. I'm allowing one day per week for when I have no time and end up with only half as much. Hope everyone has a great month of September!!!
