9/2: Booty Ballet = 45 min
9/3: C25K W1D2 (45 min w/ xtra walking); 90 min. booty ballet = 135 min
9/4: Sick
9/5: Sick

Goal: 450 min Total: 270 min

9/6: Rest day
9/7: Completely unplanned rest day (unless eating apple pie counts)
9/8: 35 min Pilates; 45 min Booty Ballet; 10 min Raking leaves = 90 min
9/9: 30 min Booty Ballet; 30 min Biggest Loser Cardio = 90 min
9/10:

Phenomenal Woman and paradisep Phenomenal woman, wb and congratsssssss on the minutes you accomplished last month.

Big sexy, your baby is beautiful! congratulations . BIgsexy, no it is not lame at all to adjust your goal. SOmetimes when we start out etc. (or anytime) we might set the goal too high and that can backfire...we want a goal that works for us and by all means my lady....absolutely change it to something that works for you! I think your doing great... I hope you feel better. Look it over and see what you feel would be a good adjustment for you and let me know when you decide and I will make the corrections in the goal list! np

well chickies....I will do my minutes in the morning. hugs...

I have just joined this forum. I can't go for runs or walks due to bilateral faciitis of both feet. I can ride a bike or use an exercise bike. I would like to set my first goals to 20 min a day for the first week and adding 5 min each week. I have not worked out in a while so I don't want to over do it at beginning.

400/1500

And I accomplished one of my goals! Finally got the Y membership and have worked out the past 2 nights in public. Not as bad as I thought, lol. After the first night, my ipod just stopped working out of nowhere (stupid piece of cr*p--I just paid $250 for it a little over a year ago!). I knew without my ipod I wouldn't be able to focus on working out. I need something to focus on when working out or I lose interest. So today I went and spent another $250 on an ipod just to make sure I would keep working out and not have any excuses! This time I got an ipod touch too, which was awesome because now I can totally cheat and watch movies while working out!

Thanks Ms Perception. It was getting to be such a downer every day posting my workouts that didn't meet the goals I had set.

So Fullsteamahead my new goal is simply 780 minutes of exercise this month. I'm scaling way back, but it's definitely achieveable!

And Jessicado way to go with the new ipod! It kind of stinks the other gave out so quickly though! Have fun with it

500/1500

Did 1 hr of cardio today at the gym and 1/2 hr ST circuit at the gym

SG--I am the same way! These challenges hold me accountable to my exercise, lol.

BigSexy--yeah I couldn't believe it broke! I have actually had problems with ipods in the past, but all the bugs were "supposed" to be worked out in the 5th generation ones. Apparently not! The new touch one is lots of fun though......so maybe it was meant to be! And W2G on realizing you weren't going to meet your original goal and altering it, instead of getting discouraged and quitting altogether!
