    I'm about to go camping for the extended weekend. So much biking, chasing kids, sweating my face off, and hiking to be done.

    Did 20 secs of my plank challenge, harder than I thought. Had Panda Express for dinner tonight with my hubby, first splurge since July 17, and first day over 15 g carbs. Now I have a headache and a stomach ache. Was not worth it!

    Im doing this plank challenge too

    I'm planking and am at 150 seconds. It's killing me, but I'm sticking with it for the month and then I'm trying variations. See how it goes. It's so hard, but I feel it working, and I hate sit ups more.

    September Daily Goals:
    1) activity: dancing/ 150 minutes
    2) 9/2 loss: 10-1.2 = 8.8 pounds to go
    3) basic plank/ rest day.

    Bonus is, I'm feeling so good right now about things. Hope this wave lasts for awhile.

    planks really do make a major difference. after only a few weeks even I noticed abs starting to develop and my arms getting stronger. I wish I would've kept it up all year. no time like the present to start again.

    A day late, but I'm here! I need to step it up in way too many areas... I think to keep from overwhelming myself I will do it like this:

    September Goal: Lose 10lbs (hopefully this isn't just a dream, but this would get me into One-derland!)

    Week 1 Goal: Step up logging and get back to less than 20g net carbs a day

    If I can consistently hit this week 1 goal, I will move on to a different goal for week 2 while still holding myself accountable for this goal as well!

    Also, I think I will join in on 1 of the 30 day challenges as well... or maybe both, we'll see :)

    GW: 180, 160... haven't really decided yet

    September Goal=1200 minutes of exercise.
    Today=Day 2: 60 minutes of walking, 3.56 miles (1080 minutes to go)

    It's raining here but I was so happy to get outside in low 70 degree weather (versus the 90s) I couldn't have cared less about the drizzle. Grabbed my backpack and walked to the grocery store/s. Taters & an orange for DH. Coconut & HWC for me. Done!

    September Goal: 1200 exercise minutes.
    Today: 60 minute walk to the grocery store. 3.56 miles. It was raining but I was so thrilled to have 70 degree weather I didn't care about the rain. :)

    Hi all, this is my second month on low carb. My goal is to workout 5 - 6 times a week for about 30 to 45minutes.

    I went for a walk today. It was brisk because it started raining and the temperature dropped to about 10C. It feels like fall already!

    I think I'll try this plank challenge some of you all have going on. 20 seconds doesn't sound so bad. 5 minutes though? Eek!

    We can do it!!
