Weight wise I'm only down 2.8 for the month. My Wednesday Weigh Ins are listed here . But considering I went on vacation and it was my birthday this month, I'm not too overall unhappy about that. It's still a loss, I suppose! I'm not sure why it seems but ever since I hit 40# lost, the weight has really been a struggle for each and every pound. As of now, I'm 1.4 away from 50# total and I sure hope that once I hit that, the weight will start falling off regularly again. Why does it seem that the first few months the pounds just melt off and then it's like you hit a brick wall or something.
As compared to June's...
My steps have been fairly consistent. I think only twice since I've had the Fitbit Flex did I not do at least 10,000 steps in this month.
I do have one 5K I'm planning on running this coming month and it is the Baton Rouge Zoo Zoom 5K on August 24th! I'm really looking forward to it too. It should be a lot of fun. There are also several more coming up in the next few months that I'm trying to decide if I want to do or not. I'd love to run something on Thanksgiving morning (we have a Turkey Trot 5K) but it starts around 7:30 and it's in downtown Baton Rouge. Thanksgiving is always pretty busy and I usually get up fairly early to go to my moms and help them start cooking. So, anything that I do on that day for sure, I'll have to just run on my own. There is also a Zombie run in October, an Oktoberfest run, and a Jingle Bell 5K that I'm thinking of running.
Anyway, that thought kinda got away from me a bit. But back to the Zoo Zoom, I'm going to set a goal to run it in under 42 minutes.
So my August goals are:
- Run the Zoo Zoom in under 42 minutes
- Run at least 3x per week and work on time and distance
- Continue exercising (walking/elliptical/running) at least 5x per week
- Strength train at least 2x per week
And since I haven't mentioned anything nerdy in this post, I just thought I'd share that I watched my all time favorite Doctor Who episode while on the elliptical last night. :)
July Exercise Minutes - 1856/1500 **I do hope to squeeze in a little more elliptical and weights tonight so that will be adjusted. Still, I blew through my monthly goal this time around. First time ever!!!
Did you reach your fitness goals this month? What are your plans for August?
