I am very pleased with my results so far. I pulled off a whopping 1,818 minutes of cardio fitness which was about 60 minutes averaged per day in August! Wow! I lost 7 pounds during August, which puts me at a total loss of 15 pounds since June 1, 2011. Something else I am very pleased about. I also managed to average just over 10,000 steps per day on my pedometer. Go me!
Now for September's goals....
2,000 fitness minutes, I really wish Spark added up Strength Training into my monthly fitness total, the lack of it's addition seriously hurts my motivation to do it. If anyone knows of a way to get it to add in, please let me know!
10,000 steps average per day.
Lose 7-8 pounds.
Walk Sara for 1 or 2 miles per day, Mon-Fri. Weekends would be a bonus.
Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds work outs every day. 2 miles minimum. I want to do a 4 or 5 mile walk once a week.
Follow my Spark recommended full body strength training session 3x a week for 10 minutes a day.
Stay within my calorie and nutrient goals and get my water in each day.
Read my Bible every day.
Go to church every Sunday.
40 crunches and 17 push ups for my monthly fitness test.
Work on crocheting my brother's Bucs blanket that I want to complete and give to him for Christmas this year. Below is what it looks like so far...
Keep my house clean and organized.
Get the weeds in my yard under control. It's not as daunting a task when I know I can count the time as fitness!
Okay, I know that is a lot, but it's mostly just a continuation of what I have been doing anyway and adding a few extras to keep pushing and challenging myself. I like to compete and I am fortunate that my brain accepts competing with myself =) My husband has also mentioned working on getting himself in shape and losing weight in order to keep up with me. That's another little goal I have, to weigh less than him by the end of the month. Last he checked he was 238, I am 240, but dipped to 239 once this week and sure I will be there again in another day or two.
I CAN DO THIS!
God bless you all =)
