We'll be out of town for some of October, which always makes setting goals a little tricky. So, I'm going to bump up the minutes but allow maximum flexibility by not setting any other goals.

October exercise goal: 1600 minutes

RoyalAthena, your goals are perfect and not the least bit puny. I think it is so much better and wiser to set goals you can meet than to deliberately raise the bar so high that it forces you to give up, injure yourself, or leave you frustrated. Trust me, been there...more than once.

Good luck!
