  • 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.
  • Some form of exercise (cardio or strength) 3X/week

    10/1. 3 mile walk

    I am out. I am having trouble getting started.
  • 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.


                          Minimum             Better           Ideal
    Cardio                660                800             800
    Weights               240                300             300
    Other (tbd)            0                  0              100
    Totals                900               1100            1200
  • Managed 56 miles last month even with my mom visiting. Let's try for 65 this time!

    Goal: 65 miles biked
  • 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!
  • I'm in for 1500 minutes of exercise!
