I really cannot believe that July is just around the corner.
Let’s not talk abut how many months are left in the year, m’kay?!
Although, this does mean we’re getting closer to our Jamaica trip over Christmas!!
June was a bit less than stellar, but, not terrible.
Work has finally slowed to a manageable pace and aside from Stampede, July should be a fairly reasonable month (well, except if we have to move, which I’d be totally okay with!).
Overall, my theme for July is healthy eating and exercise, let’s see how I’m planning on approaching this.
I did REALLY well with my fitness calendar in March and April, then I went to Houson and stopped. Completely. For 2 months.
Surprisingly, I still lost weight.
Starting in July (actually, starting TODAY with yoga and a 5k run AND a 5k run on Saturday!) I’m going to get back to my fitness calendar. I’ve mapped out all of my training runs AND made adjustments for days I know I won’t be able to make it, so my goal is to complete 90% or 19/21 scheduled workouts in July. Some days have 2 workouts (usually a run and yoga) so as long as I do ONE of those, I will count it as a success.
I’ll be printing this out and hanging it by my computer so I can check my workouts off when I complete them (thanks for the great idea Cassie!).
Sometimes food is a really big struggle for me.
Like, REALLY big.
like love food.
Like, a lot.
I also struggle with putting major limitations on food – it just makes me want it MOAR.
However, if I want to lose the last 15 pounds (nearly exactly) I’m going to need to make some BIG changes.
However, instead of diving in all at once with this BIG change, I’m taking some baby steps here. We have a 2 day wedding this weekend and then my dad and his girlfriend are visiting over Stampede, so I know any food goals I set for this time are going to fail.
Starting July 16 (food is supplied when I mark exams) I’m going to follow Bob Harpers Skinny Rules for 4 weeks. My goal is to follow these as perfectly as I can while following my exercise plan.
Per Krissie, my life is going to SUCK for the first 3 days, and then? AWESOME.
Three days of suck to be down 15 pounds?! I’ll totally take it!
Two goals, but two BIG goals for July.
