GOALS FOR AUGUST AND THE LAST DAYS OF VACATION

Saturday, August 01, 2009

In a team post on 6/30, I wrote,
"Okay, even though I am struggling to get the abs workout done this week, for July (which starts tomorrow) I am challenging myself to get 1500 fitness minutes and to do the 30-day shred (yikes!) I'll keep you up to date on my progress and let you know if and when I finish my infamous "exercise menu" --it's much more complicated than I thought!"

Well, I didn't even start the 30-day shred and the exercise menu just hasn't come together, but there are some positives to July:
Summing up the second half of July:
• very exciting to be named DGOTD on July 22!
• met and exceeded my goal of 100 miles: total 120.4051
• on track for C25K begun on 7/2/09; just did workout one for week four on 7/29
• July totals: 1807 min cardio and 215 min ST--GOAL WAS 1500
• weight loss is still a priority (hasn't budged); 4.25 inches lost, however.
• since the July 22 opening, haven't gotten into the swing of things at KAMP WACHA-WANN-WEIGH--luckily, it's a come-if-and-when-you-want.
• Wave Runners is turning into a tremendously supportive team.
• strength-training is still high on the agenda; got only two good sessions in the last weeks of July
• I have lost my focus this past week but hope that a new month will be the inspiration I need to start anew.

GOALS FOR AUGUST

1. Lose 5-10 pounds.
2. Re-examine diet and exercise to see how to get the scale moving down.
3. Increase ST--aim for a solid session 3 times a week
4. Fitness minutes goal for August: 2500
5. Miles goal for August: 120 miles
6. Come up with a list of rewards for specific markers of progress
7. Other goals:
--clean out every room in house by end of August
--all carpets shampooed
--weed out wardrobe
--clothes and household stuff: give away, throw away, or yard sale
--gather books for donation to library
--new linens: bedsheets and towels
--prepare courses for fall--all handouts, notes, etc. ready to go by mid August
--downtime: two vacations with extended family and a shower and a wedding

SWIMMING THROUGH SUMMER INTO FALL (June 20-Sept 21)

    Hi Aggie, I'm exhausted just reading your exercise program :)

    but well done sticking with it even if you're not losing weight. I think the inches are more important anyway and 1 inch off each thigh is great!
