Now that my move is officially over it's time to really focus on our summer fitness goals. First we want to hike up Mt. Washington in August. We also want to plan a 25 mile bike trip (in New England, hills and all). June is our time to really start getting serious about daily exercise - hikes or bike rides. I've got a camping/biking trip to the Cape and Relay for Life so should be easy to hit 1500 minutes this month

I'm going to bump my minutes up a little this month since my gym partner and I have been bumping up our time on the elliptical as we continue. I'm going to keep my goal of 150 crunches every other day. I completed my squat challenge in May, so I'm going to replace squats w/ leg lifts to work on my lower stomach. Yes, I know, that's going to KILL me, LOL

***Edit: I am changing my goal as far as leg lifts go b/c I got a reality check on just how difficult they are, LOL. So I'm going to go w/ 50 every other day, which would be 750.***

I've never done heavy exercising before and am new to these 30 day challenges but they look like a good idea. Going to be starting the 30DS and squat challenge tomorrow!

Not my best month ever. Didn't meet my goal and most of my exercise was in big bursts. I need to work on regular exercise in July
