July Goals Wrap-up
My main focus for my July goals were exercise (aka – actually doing it) and food (aka – not eating like crap).
First up: EXERCISE.
Fitness how I planned my month to be.
My original goal was to complete 19/21 scheduled workouts.
As you can see from the calendar, there are a heck of a lot more than 2 red days.
I missed 8 workouts, but also added in quite a few workouts as well. 19/21 was a pretty lofty goal and all-in-all I’m impressed with where I ended up fitness wise.
Next up: FOOD.
My goal was to follow the Skinny Rules eating plan starting July 16, which I started.
Right now I’m saying I’m following a modified Skinny Rules plan. While I can appreciate that some people can do it 100%, I struggle with denying everything. On top of follow the majority of the Skinny Rules guidelines, I’ve also started tracking my food.
When I look at when I’ve been successful in losing weight, it’s always been when I’ve tracked my food. Knowing what I’m eating and how much I’m burning really helps.
After gaining (ugh) at the end of last week, I’m back to where I started at 143.8, so I know I’m at a good starting point. I just have to keep motivated (especially throughout all my work travel in the fall) and I’ll definitely succeed!
So, while I may not be 100% on my goals, I sure am happy with where I ended up.
