Well, before I added up all of my numbers for the month of July, I really thought that they would be much lower than they were for June. Why did I think that? Mostly because my loss for the month was 3 pounds compared to the 7 that I lost in June.
CARDIO: Biking 12.5 hours (-6 hours); 102.6 miles
Running 15.3 hours (+7 hours); 85.6 miles
Pilates 156 min. (-24 min.)
JULY CHALLENGE: 100 pushups (did 8 days, 41 being the most)
JULY NUMBERS: 3 lbs. gone; 5.5 inches gone
So, despite a smaller loss in weight, I lost 2.5 inches more than June! That is something for me to smile about! My biking time decreased but my running has almost doubled and I owe my lost inches to it. I have really noticed a difference in my legs (and those pesky thighs). Once again my goal for August is to increase the workouts with weights. I had 5 days this month which isn't nearly enough. The pushup challenge was strong in the beginning then I got bored so there's work to be done there.
I'm ready for the dog days of August and am looking forward to another exciting month of improvement. How about you? Anything you've been pleased with for July? Something you'd like to work on improving for August? I'd love to hear from you.
Enjoy your day!
