October Exercise Challenge
This feels funny, I've never started a thread before! But here are FSA's words of wisdom:

Hi ladies : ) Here is to a new month!

To those of you who would like to join in....please feel free. All are welcome and we are here to post our minutes/goals to hold ourselves accountable and to help support and encourage one another.

We all have various goals and different fitness levels, there is no wrong or right here whether it be 10 min. a day or walk 3x a week, etc. We tailor our workouts according to our own best individual needs. The girls here rock and are very supportive so if you should be just starting out don't hesitate .

Exercise goals will be listed listed here, while weight loss goals, etc. will be listed in our sister thread, "OctoberWeight Loss Challenge".

Thanks for starting us up Tummy!!! :)

Okay...um...let's see...

October Exercise Goals~

Start P90X (still trying to decide if I'm starting on the 1st or on Monday)
Try not to keel over dead from the P90X--that would be an 'unofficial goal' ;)
Keep on running at least 3 miles 3X/Wk
HIIT 3X/Wk if P90X doesn't kill me :lol:

I am really looking forward to changing up my workout! While my old ST'ing routine has definitely worked, I'm beyond bored with it. :)

Here's to another fantastaic month ladies!!!!!

Shrinking Girl 09-29-2009 11:00 AM

Again, I've been thinking about my goals for this month and I really feel as though I have a sustainable exercise plan going on right now and so I'm going to keep it up with just one little difference.

Curves: 3x per week
Abs: 2x per week w/ official video (bye bye half hearted situps!)

And as for the change... I want to continue my running 3x per week but I want to increase my distance to 3 miles. I have an entire month to do it so here's hoping!

iDream 09-29-2009 11:04 AM

You can do it SG!!!! I KNOW IT!!! :running:

PinkyPie 09-29-2009 11:06 AM

I'm in - 3x per week jogging minimum, start the pushups program again and be on Week 3 Day 3 by the end of the month.

Ms Perception 09-29-2009 01:24 PM

So glad to get to start over. I hated seeing my first week of September over and over! LOL So, here's the good stuff...

My October Goals:
1. 1800 minutes
2. Running 5X/wk (follow new 5K training program)
3. ST 2X/wk (continue and expand current program)

I MAY add one more element, but I'm going to wait and see what works for me. My first idea was foiled (as mentioned in the Sept. Weight Loss thread), and I didn't have a back-up. It may take me a few days to find an acceptable alternative. ;)

ButterflyDiva 09-29-2009 01:44 PM

Here are my goals

1400 minutes of exercise
Stick to doing Shaun T's Insanity
Exercise 5Xs a week

MeowMix 09-29-2009 02:33 PM

Since last month I aimed for 1200 mins and did over that, I'll aim for 1300 mins this month.

salsa chip 09-29-2009 03:03 PM

Ok, I'm in!
I'm going to run 3 times every week. I also have sessions with my PT twice a week, but I don't think that's a goal because they're booked in and stuff :)

KimL1214 09-29-2009 03:11 PM

I'm going to up my minutes to 1000 this month!!!

mystical 09-29-2009 03:46 PM

ok ladies I am back up and running I didn't do an exercise goal last month, so I am going to make a commintment this month. I am not going to start out to strong and kill myself I just want to be able to say at the end of the month that I have a plan... Hope you all have a great day. Good luck! :)

October Goal:
Gym 3 X wk
Video 2 X wk

p7eggyc 09-29-2009 04:29 PM

One very specific goal. Repeat my September goal of 968 minutes and actually get them this time.

One more vague but important goal: Figure out whether I'm buying a treadmill or joining a gym for winter workouts.


helpmelose 09-29-2009 07:16 PM

Hello Ladies! October is just around the corner so here are my goals for October:

Total minutes workout: 750
Crunches: 2000
Run 2x a week

Nella 09-29-2009 07:55 PM

I didn't do the exercise one for September, but I'm gonna give it a go.

~ Strength Training at least 2x/week
~ Be able to jog for longer than 5 minutes
~ Aim for 275 minutes of exercise/week

The jogging one might go away. I have bad exercise induced asthma, but it's getting better the more I'm doing walking/jogging intervals, so I'm hoping I can get my lungs trained.

ShrinkingAmy 09-29-2009 09:15 PM

I'm in! I was looking for this thread yesterday - so happy it's here today. This is the first Exercise Challenge I have done. Here are my goals:

Workout 5x/week for a minimum of 1000 minutes
Workouts will consist of strength and cardio videos and
Start C25K - I've been saying "I'm going to start this!" for over a month now and never have, but now it's going to happen!!

Please help keep me accountable - especially for the C25K!
