I did no formal exercise on the first two days of July, since I had visitors here until June 30 and I decided to spend two days giving my house a thorough "spring" cleaning. So, I spent my time cleaning bathrooms, washing windows, stripping and remaking beds, washing floors and baseboards, etc. I'm pooped, but I'm not sure how to count all of this "exercise" toward my goals. So, I will just record the cleaning as zero and will start counting tomorrow.

July Goals: 150km (Walking) PLUS 1,000 minutes (Other)

01: 0 km and 0 min
02: 0 km and 0 min

I'm increasing my goal a little for July -- 1500 minutes.

Great goals, everyone! I'll compile our list tomorrow night so there's still time to sign up and get in the initial list.
