July Goals

Sunday, July 01, 2012

My goal for June was to lose 12 pounds, going from 162 to 150 pounds by July 1.

That didn't happen. I actually ended up at 153.5, a loss of 8.5 pounds for the month.

So, for July I'll be a bit more realistic, but still ambitious: 10 pounds. I think I can do it, especially now that I'm upping my running distances to train for my upcoming 10k races. By the end of the month, my running schedule has me doing 2 50-minute runs and a slow 5 mile run each week.

Hoping that will be enough to give my body a kick in the pants. 143.5, here I come!

How I will get there:

Exercise 6 days per week:
Run 3 days a week, Body Pump afterwards on two of those days.
Spinning class 2 days.
Body Pump 1 day.

Eat on plan.

If all goes well, I will be out of the "overweight" range by mid August.
