I hope that everybody had a good month. We've had terrific weather for the most part and I'm glad to say that my planting is finished as of yesterday (just one more container to fill). My house is tidy, my yard looks great NOW I need to focus on the goal of losing these pesky 20 pounds.
Many of you remember that there was a challenge to lose 10 pounds in April. Well, I lost 6 and was hoping for a better result this month. Looks like the total is only 3 for May. SIGH. I did, however, lose 2.5 inches so that's a good thing! I must admit to having had a few days that could have been better. I let myself overindulge the one week that I was missing most of my workouts because of my leg. I don't hate myself for it like I might have in the past. I just know that as I get older, those moments hang around longer than they used to.
My Exercise Challenge could have been better. It was an abs focused one and I have to admit to being bored doing just those few workouts. For the most part, I incorporated ab "workouts" when I did my planting! But seriously, I did a few routines and then whatever ab work was in other workouts (ie. gliding, pilates, biking, running). I've signed up for a June Challenge which will focus on arms and legs. I've already checked out some of the exercises that Swizzlepop has posted and I'm looking forward to these.
So, I'm close to my goal of 15 pounds lost and hope to post that badge this coming Tuesday. I'll challenge myself to losing more than 3 and to continually growing stronger. I'll continue running but I think I want to focus more on strength training and stretching.
I hope that everybody had a successful month and wish you all the best for the month of June.
