340/1000 Push Ups
40 Miles/75 Miles
615/1000 Sit Ups

So my July Challenge for myself is over. It wasn't a success as far as meeting my goals. However, I find that it was still a success. Had I NOT challenged myself, I wouldn't have done 340 push ups in July, nor would I have done 40 miles in July, nor would I have done 615 sit ups (half way to my goal!!). So it was still a SUCCESS in that I did SOMETHING!!!

Starting tomorrow, I can officially say our vacation is next month!! It is getting so close and I still have so much to do health wise. Today I decided to try to cut out carbs from my diet. While some of my carb intake is OK carbs, I have WAY too much of them on a daily basis. I am going to try to substitute those with eggs and salads, and of course my very YUMMY, go to Chocolate Shakeology!!! My almost two year old and I have started having our Tropical Shakeology as a snack after dinner. He loves it!! He comes running when he hears the blender going, saying "YAY!!". I love it!!

We had my birthday weekend last weekend (34...YIKES!!! 40 is looking younger every year!!). I kinda overdid the food and kinda didn't work out at all. Ouch. Oh well, new week and I am going strong. August is going to be my month. I really feel like my exercise is in a good place and has become a part of my day-to-day routine. I feel off all day if I skip my workouts. My work to be done is in the kitchen. That's what I am going to work on in August. Happy last day of July!!!

270/1000 Push Ups
32.5 Miles/75 Miles
435/1000 Sit Ups

Clearly my little challenge for myself is not going like I was hoping for! But on the other hand, at least I am doing something! I will just continue on with it each month and hope that as each month goes by, I can beat the previous month's goals.

Yikes! There are only 52 days left until we leave for vacation! We have been talking about this trip for over a year and I just can't believe that it is almost here! I am so excited to have a week with my family on the beach and watch the kids experience Disneyland and Sea World and all the other fun stuff we will experience! Plus, I get to see so much of my family that I haven't seen in over two years.

I got up super early this morning to get some work done early, only to find out our system was down. Ugghh, I was too awake to go back to bed so I got my workout done! It feels AWESOME having it done for the day! I may even try to squeeze a little extra treadmill time in later today. Today I did some more weights, HIITS 20, and 2.5 miles on the treadmill. I got my run intervals up to 6.0 today! My old school music helped get me going this morning!! :-)

Happy Exercising!

235/1000 Push Ups
30 Miles/75 Miles
375/1000 Sit Ups

Yikes, I am having a really hard time getting back into the swimg of things since being sick. Earlier today I did some weights and my Turbo Fire HIITS 15. They kicked my butt!! I decided to not run/walk today because of the cardio video. Then I had dinner. It. was. ugly. That is all I have to say. Needless to say, I got my but on the treadmill tonight and did my 2.5 miles of walk/run. It hurt. Throughout the rest of the day I did go though. I had been without my Shakeology since Friday and I was missing it! I had a shake for breakfast and then I was craving another one around lunch time so I just went ahead and had one for lunch too. I filled the day in with some fruits and nuts to snack on to keep my appetite curbed. Off to bed now for me. Hopefully the late run doesn't get me all fired up to the point of not being able to sleep, I don't usually work out this late!!

200/1000 Push Ups
27.5 Miles/75 Miles
315/1000 Sit Ups

I was out for a week with a terrible head cold. I tried working out last Wednesday shortly after it had started and it was a horrible workout and by the end of the day I felt miserable. I decided to listen to my body and rest, though I think I might have extended that rest more than I needed to!! I worked out two days ago and struggled big time. Then yesterday was just laziness. The day before hurt and I dreaded it too much that I just kept putting it off until it was too late. Not today. I just sucked it up and did it. It was rough, but I did it and hopefully tomorrow will be just a little bit easier.

Tonight we are going to our fair, which means funnel cake!! I am hoping that we can all share ONE, that way I don't make myself miserable! Ohhh, how I LOVE funnel cake!!!

New Numbers:

165/1000 Push Ups
22.5 Miles/75 Miles
255/1000 Sit Ups

I think my almost 2 year old son has shared his bronchitis with me. I feel terrible. But I forced myself to do some ST and my walk/run routine. The running intervals seemed like they lasted forever. I was exhausted when I got done, but I am so happy I did it. Hopefully tomorrow I feel better!!
