So it's been a while. I don't really have a lot of time to go super in depth, but the wedding was wonderful. Somehow I have no pictures just of me, so I cropped other people out:
This is pretty late in the day, and I was melting, but otherwise it was a great day.
Since then I've been very busy and not as active, but I just got the Spark Activity tracker today, so hopefully I'll find the time to post again.

So Sadly, I did not make it to 1500 fitness minutes. My work schedule got hectic, so wasn't able to report a few days of fitness, and then I had a week of overtime like crazy, leading to a dramatic stop to my fitness life.
Oh well, August is over, moving on to September.
I am so excited for fall and I can not wait to decorate for Halloween and plan a costume. I need to rethink our budet as i will be getting married near the end of the month and we need to figure out joint account grown-up stuff fairly soon. Also, did I mention the getting married part? There are still so many things that need done and I need to hurry up and squeeze everything in fast.
Given all of this, my goals for September are modest:
1. Continue drinking 10 glasses of water per day
2. Run 3 times per week
3. Get 30 minutes of cardio daily (with one rest day)
4. Complete the Spring (or Fall) into Shape Challenge
5. Get the 1000 fitness minutes trophy again
6. Complete that squat challenge I did last year again
Additionally, I want to get my future husband's finances in order, and finalize our budget. And not stress out completely before the wedding. Let's go September!

Just wanted to check in and review my August goals as the month is halfway through. I've been doing really well on fitness minutes and am on track to get the 1500 minutes trophy again this month, so YAY! Shouldn't be hard to keep this up.
I also wanted to run 3x/week. The first week wasn't so great, but this week I did it! Will continue working on this through the rest of the month.
I've been getting enough water and sleep pretty regularly which is great and something I don't really have to think about so much anymore, it's pretty automatic at this point.
As far as eating what is right for me, that one has been hard. I had been going over my calorie limits on the weekend something awful, but then I realized I was going way over my calorie burned goal on my trackers, so I updated that and now apparently I haven't been eating enough during the week? It's tricky finding the right balance since I've upped the exercise, but I've been trying to focus on good food and just eating enough to make me feel good. I'm trying to not focus as much on the numbers as on myself, and I'll see how that works.
Not feeling great about the slight gain this weekend, but I am pretty sure it's due to ToM bloating and hope next week is better.

My goals for July were:
1. To work out for 40 minutes a day (1 rest day a week)
2. To drink 10 glasses of water every day
3. To eat three meals a day
4. To get 8 hours of sleep per day
5. To get the 1000 fitness minutes trophy again (Hadn't gotten it since October 2013)
6. To run 3x each week
I had noticed I haven't quite reached the 1000 fitness minutes/month trophy since October of last year (which was my greatest month, fitness and weight loss wise,) so I made it my mission to get that trophy again. Not only did I meet my goal, but I also got the 1500 minute/month trophy!
I did super on all of my goals except for the running 3x per week, as I got sidelined by blisters, and occasionally on sleep, as I had a few work-related short nights.
Anyway, for August I want to go further
1. To work out for 55 minutes a day (1 rest day a week)
2. To run 3x each week
3. To focus on eating what is right for my body, not any one else's
4. To get 8 hours of sleep per day
5. To get the 1500 fitness minutes trophy again
6. To continue to drink 10 glasses of water/day
I tend to see others eating more/am pressured by others to eat more, and as a result I feel like my weight loss is being sabotaged, so this month I really want to focus on eating what I know is right for me and ignoring what others say is okay. I also really want to actually meet my running goal, and get the 1500 minute trophy again.

So my biggest goal for July was to get the 1000 fitness minute trophy again. The last time I got this one, and the only time, was back in October of last year. I don't know why I haven't been able to get it since then, but I made it my primary goal to get there again this month. Anyway, a few days ago I did! Currently I have 1,150 minutes for this month, so my new goal is to get to 1500 minutes for this month.
As far as my other goals go, I've been doing very well, although over the weekend I slipped a little at work and have had soda and chips again. It's not the end of the world though. The running goal fell by the wayside a bit as I had blisters, but since I've healed I've been doing goo there as well.
Now I need to think about how I can kick it up a notch for August.
