I'm feeling discouraged because I've been eating so much more than I should be and not really exercising consistently. My goals are to get back to tracking food and staying within my range and moving more. And to give myself some more pep talks.

My goal for August is to get through week 3 of the couch to 5K program and start week 4 in September. I'm being realistic knowing that I probably won't complete the program in the amount of time I'm supposed to as I've already had to repeat a week. It's getting easier every time but running at my size is definitely not something I ever thought I could do.

I've been lax lately... well, for most of the summer so far.

But!!! I'm going to Phoenix in September to see my sweetie, and he walks up and down a mountain, about six miles round trip. I can't do the whole six miles, but I'm going to build myself up to it.

So, for August, I'm going to walk every day, alternating between my short walks and my long ones; I'm going to eat my fruits every day; drink my water; and eat within my calorie range.

In short, I'm starting from scratch, but loving it.!

I weigh in every Sunday. My goal is to lose some weight each week, even if only a small amount of weight. I want to be consistent at weight loss. So far I have lost some weight three weeks in a row. Now for August!

Some of us use scales. Others keep track of inches or centimeters. Still others set goals for exercise. For this challenge you set your own goal (s) for AUGUST and then let us know how you're doing. Check in at the end of the month or more frequently if you wish. Do not make a goal that is too BIG or FAST! Be realistic.

What are your goals for the month of AUGUST?
