But on the other hand, July rocked as far as exercise goes. I slowly got back into running. I say slowly because it's just too damn hot here. I've only ran in spurts in the few mornings that I have done it. I'm really looking forward to cooler weather that's for sure. Other than that, I did up my walking, by a good bit. I started walking at work much more regularly and I can get a whole hour in usually each day (am and pm 15 minute breaks and then 30 minutes during my lunch break).
|Still need to do something today though. Soon.|
|85 miles total for the month! As Blossom's brother Joey would say..."Whoa!"|
I've also come to the conclusion that I'm going to stop tracking my exercise through Endomondo. It's not accurate calorie-burn wise as my HRM/Garmin, plus it double logs everything in My Fitness Pal. Bummer, because I love those little green men!
We had 3 family birthdays this month, including my own. Overall my 40th wasn't too terribly bad.
August Goals -
I'm going to give 100 miles a whirl for August! I had 85 and that was just normal stuff with not a whole lot of running thrown in, so I am really going to try to get back to running at least 2 to 3 times per week. Now this will include everything that garmin will track for me (tennis, walking, running, elliptical)
Strength training - 3 times per week
Food - Just do better. Period.
In other news, Chris and I had a "come to Jesus" last night. I was upset about the scale and he came in, sat down and said that he thinks he may be the problem. He has never really been 100% on board and doing it with me (diet, exercise, etc.) I would always just do my thing and occasionally we'd walk or play tennis. But if he is willing to give it 100% maybe things will start moving scale wise again with us both encouraging each other. No better time than the present, eh? So we'll start really taking a hard look at places where we need to change and go from there. Hoping to get him on board sooner with this rather than later.
Here's a few pics from July:
In other Nerdy news - I bought this awesome tank to wear and all these wonderful new bondi-bands
I'm definitely looking forward to August though and maybe making a few changes and tweaking some things here and there to see if I can get the weight to start coming off again.
So glad today is Friday! We should have a pretty awesome weekend planned. House cleaning tonight, Guardians of the Galaxy tomorrow morning, then afterwards DnD with friends. Sunday will be meal planning and resting! Also some gym time thrown in the weekend mix too. (No tennis though, all the instructors are on vaycay. ) We may go hit a few around though from time to time next week. Have a good weekend everyone!
How was your July? Did you guys reach all your goals this month?
