Thumbs up September Exercise Challenge

Remember exercise in September -- it helps our overall health and to maintain our losses.

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: September Weight Loss Challenge

Good morning all,

September goal - regular exercise

My goal for September is to establish and maintain a regular exercise routine, just do something every day without feeling like it's a chore, feeling like it's just part of what I do.

GardenerJoy thanks for the thread

Hello everyone, I figured that I should sign up here as well as on the weight loss thread.

My goal for September is to do at least 150 active minutes (according to my Fitbit) a week, but aim for 30 active minutes a day.

1: 0 minutes. Decided on a rest day because I've been walking with no socks and managed to develop a couple of blisters.

1: 0 minutes. Decided on a rest day because I've been walking with no socks and managed to develop a couple of blisters.
2: 8 minutes. I hate Fitbit active minutes...
3: 13 minutes. Even though I was actually walking for 2 hours, only 13 minutes were 'active'.
4: 62 minutes. Decided to start walking much earlier in the day and it was much more successful.

I'm joining late; I hope that's ok! I wanted to give myself some time to get a sense of my schedule this semester before making an exercise plan. My goal is to exercise 15 times, starting today, for the rest of the month. My reach goal is actually to work out 18 times, but I'm giving myself a small buffer for life's hiccups.

I'll likely be doing dvd workouts for most of my exercise, but I didn't want to limit my goal to just that. I also really love walking.

GOAL: 15 Workouts

01: 9/06, dvd.
02:
03:
04:
05:

06:

08:
09:
