My goal for October is to start back on my exercise routine on Monday, October 6th (when I'm off of restricted!). I will do an hour of water aerobics M-F, on the days that I do not have to sub. I will also walk/jog/cycle for an hour at least 3 days a week.

Thanks, Gardenjoy, for starting the Oct thread!

Welcome, Lori. Nice to see you back, Sum & JB! How are you feeling, JB?

Since Sept is not over yet I feel I am jinxing myself but here goes. My downfall is exercising when (1) things get busy
or (2) I'm traveling. Since Oct will include both, I have no idea if this will work.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Code:
                      Minimum             Better           Ideal
Cardio                660                800             800
Weights               240                300             300
Other (tbd)            0                  0              100
Totals                900               1100            1200

October 1 starts the 30 day "easy" squat and glute bridge challenge for me!
I'll also continue 5 day a week cardio for 30-45 minutes.

Love seeing those numbers drop! Bring it October!

Hey y'all! I'm back! I moved and settled into a new place.

My exercise of choice is walking. And I'd like to log 100 miles for October.

I'm going to repeat the first 4 weeks of Couch to 5K. It was silly of me to set this goal for September. I work on a university campus and EVERYTHING is either happening or in the planning stages in September !

Here's to an optimistic October for us all!
