7-1-2013 - Summing up June and onward to July!

Monday, July 01, 2013

This time I am a little better getting this blog done closer to the beginning of the month. LOL I guess I am on a roll in many ways.
So since the beginning on Jan I have lost 18.6 lbs . I am really happy with this. I have had a month or a little more plateau so I am still doing well. Better than that I am starting to really feeling like I am looking better, still not in love with this body but its getting better. This month I focused on exercise don't a little more Curves and adding interval walking a couple times a week. With the warmer weather I have been able to get out and do some swimming most days, I do about 20 laps and some water exercises. I love being able to do that water exercise I miss it for so much of the year. I had my body fat and bmi checked at Curves this morning and both are down and heading in the right direction. I have also found a nice range of calories to eat in, I am being careful to make those calories count, eating good carbs, lots of veggies and whole grain and some yummy fruit from our trees as it comes in season.
I am resetting my goal of 169 which I am only 16 lbs away, from the end of the year to my bday in early Oct. It will be a nice challenge and I will have to keep my focus but I think I might just be able to make it. Then I can reset my year end goal to 150, which will have me within 15 lbs of my goal weight according to my DR. Everyone keep those good thoughts for me and if needed give me a little kick when needed.
I am going to continue to doing Curves Complete and keep in that calorie range.
My exercise I am going to keep with Curves 4 times a week, on weekly Zumba w/ curves, walking both interval and just walking daily trying for about 60 total minutes, swimming those 20 or more laps every day I can.
Keep drinking my 10 glasses of water daily
Keep doing SP Coach, get motivation and info.
Doing so sort of strength(curves included) daily

Looks like that will keep me pretty busy.
I am hoping to lose at least 5.2 lbs this month or better. (5.2 is what I lost in June) I can do this!!!!

I am holding tight to my dreams and goals and not letting them slip. Keeping focused is the thing to do and as always TO BELIEVE!!!!

Keep believing in yourself and working hard it will come to you. I know it will.

Hugs. smiles and thanks
