Final Totals For The Month

Before I get into my final weigh in for this month I have to say I had a bad mental day on Friday. I didn't do anything on Friday. I slept on and off all day. No exercise, I didn't even make my calories for the day.I made 962.out of 1400-1500.

Weigh in. Got up, went over and stood on the scale and I took a deep breathe and looked down. I thought it was off. So I adjusted the scale,made sure it was zero out.Got back on it and looked again. Sweet!!! I lost a pound and a half. So the total for the month is 9.5 pounds. I do not know what that is in stone. Maybe JB can tell me. Holy Cats!!! In a month !!! You can not wipe the smile off my face at work yesterday. Still can't.
I did my work out last night. I came closer to making my numbers. 1900 out of 2000.

Sine I am home while the gym is open.I have to go do my intervals. Chris go over to you Tube and type in Burpies and it will pull up all exercises for it. When Isabeau adds in new exercises, she sends me links from You tube to go with them.

We were talking last night, and we are thinking about buying a dreadmill. I don't want to pay more to go to a gym that is open later on weekends and they have a 30 minutes limit. So I will be shopping around. And I am looking for a bike stand so I can ride my bike in the house on the stormy days.

Small person has a birthday next week. She wants to go to Disney, but yet she wants to stay home and have a party so she can be with all her friends.We both worked this weekend so we can be off Friday- Sunday. SO she has to make up her mind what she wants to do. Tuesday is actually the day but, the weekend is easier to get off.

I will put out the Challenge for this month on Tuesday. And I will be getting my new work out too. My goal for this month is to try like h, e, double hockey sticks to get to 199. So I am going to work harder. And to break the wall and run my 2 mile route, non stop.

OK Team Voice!!!! Keep Moving Forward!!!! Byron, we all are here for you!!!

push ups: 67
weight -9.5
miles: 48.67 running miles.

YouTube ehh...I'm a little gun shy cause I ended up with a spyware infection the last time I went to YouTube...not sure if it was due to the site, but I read something about causes and that might be one of them....

Can't wait to see what's on deck for July! I'm hoping to do more low impact to save the knee's/shins after a record June...but I'm game for a challenge!

You guys will think I'm nuts, but I'm going to pose a question to y'all on my blog pretty soon....stay tuned!

Treadmills are great to have around, I use mine when the weather is minging and also when my ankles are hurting as it's a lot less impact.

Birthday times eh - hope she has a great one :-)

Hi Rae! How is everyone? A birthday party sounds like fun! Please send her our birthday wishes.

I'm working hard and trying to increase my distance running. The heat and hunmidity keep fighting me though. But I managed 10 today and 78.5 miles for June so it's not all bad.

You're doing a great job with the weight loss.....very impressive. Congrats!!!!

I'm a little behind with all the blogging and I'm not sure where things stand for everyone for January. Have you firmed up any plans yet?

Magical wishes to all, Kate

Great job on the weight loss! 9.5 lbs in a month is a great pace...fairly quick loss, but not so quick that it would be unhealthy or hard to keep off.

Keep it up!
