So pleased with my progress last month, I’ve raised the bar once again. I’ve increased my miles by 5 miles and added another day for weight lifting. I’m going on holidays on the 30th of July so I’ve basically four weeks to make as many improvements as I can. I had my bathing suit on the other day and I actually feel alright in it! But looking a little slimmer for the beach would be better! Since my holiday runs into August, I’m going to give the August challenge a miss, but track it myself.

Goals for July:
  • 50 miles.
  • 5 mile walk, 10 times.
  • 25 days weight lifting.

July:
01/07 2.3 mile walk Total: 2.3 miles, 1/25 days weight lifting.

Last month I think I went a little goal crazy so this month I am going to Keep It Simple. My goal is 4 activity points daily. Last month I would go from 0 points one day to 10 points another day and I know that that is not really the way to go. I'm going to do the same as last month for my overall goal of 124 points for the month. Hopefully this month I can do it in a more steady way. Let's rock it!

Goal: 4 AP daily, 124 Total

Week One
July 1 -0 (Total: 0)
July 2 -2 (Total: 2)
July 3 -2 (Total: 4)
GOAL- 4/12

July 5 -0 (Total: 7)
July 6 -0 (Total: 7)
July 7 -4 (Total: 11)

July 10
GOAL- ?/40

Week Three
July 11
July 12
July 13
July 14

July 17
GOAL- ?/68

Week Four

I think my exercise goal is going to be over 100 miles of running for the month. That's around 25 miles a week which is quite doable for me. ETA: Also going to do pushups on odd days and planks on even days.

I'd love to do this. I'm best when I exercise 45 minutes a day, so I'll say 1200 minutes for the month.
