I was on travel for work without a laptop so I'm late. I am increasing my minutes by 10% again so the goal is 968 minutes in September. Should be very doable as I'm off for a hiking/active vacation in Glacier Nat'l Park on Monday.

Thanks for running the challenge. It makes a huge difference for me!

S/C/G: 223/GOAL/140

Height: 5'6"



Sept. 1 - HIIT W8D1 25 minutes; Plyometrics (p90x) 60 minutes
Sept. 2 - Running 44 minutes; Shoulders and Arms (p90x) 60 minutes; Abs 17 minutes
Sept. 8 - HIIT W8D2 25 minutes; Yoga (p90x) 90 minutes - pending.

Sandye - the abs are crazy, I can't do the whole 17 minutes straight, there are some moves that I have to stop for one or two reps then get back it. I think I've done it four or five times now though and it's getting better, not eay but better. It's a love hate thing and he actually says that at the beginning of the dvd too, very true.

So far 3/3 for my P90X workouts. They are a bit much for me as I am pretty out of shape so I may switch to the P90 for the first 2 months and then try the P90X when I have a bit more core muscle development. I am going to try it through the weekend and then decide.
