I seem to be ending July with a bit of a whimper, so I'm ready for a new month!

My goal is 1400 minutes and to continue my daily exercise streak.

I just want to:
1) finish the 30 day shred
2) give blogilates a fair shot (5 days)

I'm 13 days into the shred. There is literally no excuse for not finishing this thing.

Okay, increasing cardio this month and keeping with my strength goals from last month, though I'm going to track them a bit differently.

STRENGTH: 8 upper body strength workouts and 8 lower body strength workouts

CARDIO: 240 minutes of cardio (counting gym minutes only, all other cardio is just a bonus!)

I am going to be traveling a lot in August. August 1-4 I'll be out of town, and then again August 16 - 25. (And the hopefully moving on or near Labor day weekend)

I'm going to set a goal of 2.5 miles per day for 27/31 in August, every day except the driving days.

July's exercise goals fell a bit flat when I developed a weird chest cold thing which is still going on. I'm going to see a doctor next week, so hopefully I'll be able to get moving again soon. Goals: Run 10 times, lift 4 times.

Working toward my July challenge was so helpful. I really wanted to increase my goal, but have decided to keep it close to the same, as I get discouraged easily.

My August goal is a daily walk, starting with 5 -10 min. (Increasing as I meet this daily goal).
