Exercise at least 21 days this month.
-17 days of exercise, 8 days attending conferences, a few days down with back pain.
Once I recommitted to my transformation, there were only 2 days I didn’t exercise.
Weight train at least 10 days this month (twice a week).
-6 days of weight training, FINALLY started this after some years of not doing it.
Sleep at least 6 hours a day (aiming for earlier bedtimes)
-Still struggling with this goal, need to turn off the TV and computer earlier.
Lose 5 pounds (of fat, no excuses)
-Not only did I not lose 5 lb, but by body fat percentage I gained nearly 5 lb.
July I will be in two SP challenges, so looking for ways to turn this around with better meal planning and bumping up the exercise.
Make more than 50% of meals at home.
-Did not make this goal since I was out of town for nearly a week, but making more salad choices and fewer burgers when I eat out.
Take a cooking class, try new healthy recipes.
-Yay! Did this twice – once for summer recipes including a fabulous 7 layer salad that I made at home, and another using meat substitutes that I have not tried at home yet.
Aim to hit my nutrition tracker goals at least 10 days & take the feedback on all other days seriously.
-Met calorie goals about 6 days this month. The areas I can make the most progress are reducing my carbohydrates and fats. I need to eat more salads to feel full on fewer calories.
No dessert unless I have exercised that day.
-I knew this was a weakness of mine, and although I did not stick to it every single day, it helped to have it in mind as an appropriate priority.
Otherwise I will continue all the usual streaks: water, running training program, tai chi, decluttering, meditating, journaling, and Sparking.
-Made some progress in all of the above, most notably completing a training run of over 9 miles.
Now to work on July’s goals!
