October Fitness Challenge

These were my goals for September:

~ 1,000 fitness minutes
~ Strength training:  30 mins, 4x week
~ 300 squats through the month (maybe I should work my way up :))
~ Zumba once per week

And this is how I did on them:

~  1,315 fitness minutes.  Woohoo!
~  Without looking back through my fitness program tracker (because I’m being lazy today) I would say that I made (or surpassed) my goal each week.
~ I tried to do this, I really did.  But I think I tried too many in one day.  I was hobbling around for three days after that!  Needless to say, I have decided to scale back again and try again.
~ I only did my Zumba routine twice during the month.  I did get a new exercise DVD (a Leslie Sansone one) and did that one several times.

I’m super pumped that I exceeded my fitness minutes goal.  I have been doing a pretty good job with ST — but I do need to find some heavier weights for some of the exercises.  This month is incredibly busy — son’s first birthday, 31 days of blog posting challenge, family visiting, new eight week fitness challenge is starting that I’m leading on Sparkpeople, and you know — all of the other things that have to be done too.  My family would probably get cranky if I don’t feed them regularly. 🙂

But anyway, that doesn’t mean that I need to stop focusing on my fitness goals either.  So here’s what I have planned:

Goals for October

~ 1,250 fitness minutes
~ Strength training:  30 mins, 4x week
~ 200 squats through the month
~ Zumba or another exercise DVD at least once per week

Y’all wish me luck!  I’m going to need it!
