1. Between now and Friday Night, aim for (not necessarily have to MEET just AIM for) 3 hours of ST (that's approximately 36 minutes per day - on the HIGH end of your goal.) Try to reach a minimum of 2 hours though (which is about 24 minutes per day).

2. This week, do your FAVORITE ST routines and keep it as not boring as possible.
Tuesday - Spark generated strength training with medicine ball - 45 minutes /Done
3. Its a new month and you still have FOUR WEEKS to make a visible change in your body, which is far more posible than you realise! Start October off, not just with a bang, but with a postive attitude.

Another 40 minute walk/ done
5. Between Saturday morning and Sunday night, see how many minutes you can rack up, working on any kind of exercise flex/cardio/strength) and see if you can add them up to a number that you are stupid proud to announce on Monday.
90 minutes installing gutter guards/done
10 walking/ 25 minutes jogging/done
Will have to think about this one for awhile. Have been reading many blogs and also articles on jogging to help keep me motivated.
6. *BONUS* See if you can surprise yourself, somehow, this week./ I surprised myself by climbing a very tall ladder and working on it for almost 2 hours this week/ I have a fear of heights and also afraid that because of my weight I am not very stable. I think because I have been doing the strength training I was able to feel more secure on the ladder and definitely it helped me to be able to do this installation work.
