Here it is, the end of another month… How did your July go? Did you meet your goals?
I didn’t have any special goals for specific to this month, other than my continuing weekly goals. Those goals are exercising 30 minutes/day for 6 days of the week, trying to reach 10,000 steps each day, plus logging all of my food each day. Overall, my month went well. This plan is working for me while I’m maintaining my current weight. I did gain 3.5 pounds over the month (lots of vacation time), but I’m still under my goal weight. Right now, I’m going to stick with this plan – working in my BodyFlow once a week when I’m home. My biggest focus at this point is trying to keep within a reasonable caloric intake.
Friday: 65 minutes walking, 10,305 steps/day
Saturday: 63 minutes walking, 10,497 steps/day
Sunday: 60 + 43 minutes walking, 13,907 steps/day
Monday: 60 minutes walking, 12,934 steps/day
Tuesday: 60 minutes walking, 11,361 steps/day
Wednesday: 30 minutes elliptical, 10,024 steps/day
Thursday: 52 minutes BodyFlow, 60 minutes walking, 12,936 steps/day
* I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included.
