Recap of June and changes for July

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

June recap:
I found the "report" section of SP that gives you a breakdown of so many different things. I love it!
It's been a bit difficult for me to measure my success from the 20th of the month, which is the date that I started in February. So I decided beginning with July 1st I would change to measuring my "numbers" success on a per month basis, from the 1 st to the end of the month.
So if I recap June in this way, I lost 3 lbs and 3 inches. Not stellar, but it's less than I weighed or measured in May emoticon
I never missed a day drinking 64oz of water every day.
I increased my walking from 2.6 miles to 3.5 miles. Using my fitbit, I was able so see how many steps I was getting per day - boy it was pretty lousy since I have a desk job all day long so I started increasing and maintaining 3000 more steps a day. Did that 17 days out of the month.
July goals
10 lbs. loss
64 oz water has been pretty easy - my new new goal for July is to drink 100 oz of water 10 days this month - 64 oz the other days.
I have been maintaining 22 min mile pace with my walking. Goal for July is to get at least 10 walks at 21 min pace or less. Increase walking distance beyond 3.5 miles 5 times this month.
Strength training 15 days minimum this month in the mornings for 30 minutes.
Log on to SP every day to track nutrition at least 25 days. Trip scheduled to new York mid month and I don't think I will be signing on so I want to take that into consideration, otherwise it would be everyday.
Keep in touch with my SP family and friends - encourage, congratulate, and connect as much as possible.
I'm so ready to attack July - lets DO IT!
Peace friends - make positive choices in July -

    Great recap! I also love the report section! When I had access to a printer it made it easier for me to really analyze my month, and I'm always a few days into a new month before I really get serious about my previous reflection. Look at the 3 lb loss as not a gain! You are doing terrific with all the exercise and the walks! How are the clothes fitting? I bet pretty loose!

    You turned me onto the FitBit and I love the reports I get from them, as well! It really is another accountability tool -though I haven't been wearing it to track my sleep and that's one of the main reasons I got it. argh I'm glad to see that you are holding yourself accountable to getting those steps in!

    Is DH joining you in NY? Have a fabulous time! I was there in 2001 as a summer student at Columbia and have been dying to get back and take DH with me.
    Have a fabulous 4th!
