Hello ladies!!!!!

Did everyone get July started off on the right foot!? Get it!

Do you need help getting motivated or staying motivated? This thread helps me keep track of my work outs and makes me accountable....

Start a thread and post your exercise. I post cardio but your exercise might be a walk in the fresh air. E erything counts!!! Don't worry about a goal if you can't make one.....just post

My goal this month is 1200 minutes I sprained my ankle and need to go easier this month.

7/1 - 30 minutes weights
7/2 - 45 minutes run

75/1200

Hello everyone,

 

I've seen these threads before and it's inspired me, so I'm joining you for July. smile.gif My goal is 1000 minutes of any exercise or, if I can't make it to 1000 minutes, to keep track of what I can do and feel good about any accomplishments toward the goal that I do make! Here's what I've done so far:

 

7/1--30 minute walk

 

amount to date: 30/1000

So I exercised 1034 minutes last month, mostly walking.  I'm going to try to increase it to 1300 this month and try to add some exercise that is a bit more intense. 

 

7/1-55 minute walk

 

55/1300

7/1 - 20 minutes brisk walk, 60 minutes pole dancing

7/1 - 40 minutes crossfit

 

 

Total: 120 minutes

Hi everyone!

I'm always inspired by these monthly fitness goal threads and would really love to join you this month.

It's the middle of winter where I live & motivation is definitely lacking so will be great to feel accountable smile.gif

I'm aiming to do something every day so will aim for 1000 & see where I end up!

7/1 - 30 min walk around shops
7/3 - 30 min brisk walk

I did get off to a good start I didn't expect.  Went "camping" and dropped the girls off at girl scout camp (5 minutes away) during the day.  We chose a walk-in campsite which ended up giving me at least 200 minutes just walking back and forth between the car (and usually hauling a cartload of stuff), up up up and over a long pedestrian bridge over the river and uphill a bit to the campsite.  Moderate, too.  In addition I went on a couple of walks myself.  

 

So, for the time away, I'm awarding myself 330 minutes of easy to moderate walking, which is probably a conservative estimate.  I'm now halfway to my goal of more than last month!

 

1-3 330 min moderate to easy walking/hiking

It's been a slow start...haven't been able to get out and do something everyday as I've been unwell.

On a positive note, this has inspired me to clean up my diet. Sugars were starting to creep back in here and there but now I'm back to a low sugar way of life! Also getting lots more fluids and green tea in so feeling better too.

Look at how busy we are all!

 

I love it!  I love how everyone muses out loud about their workouts and schedules.....

 

 

Who said they might not make their goal?  I might have to re-do mine as well.   The ankle sprain might slow me down more than I thought.  Or it might be that I will be at the beach for a week this month and in Aruba for a week.    Poor me huh!!!

 

 

7/1 - 30 minutes weights
7/2 - 45 minutes run
7/3 - 30 minutes total. Walking on beach and laps in pool
7/4 - 40 minutes total. 20 minutes swimming laps 20 minutes running

7/5 - nada

7/6 - driving home from vacay

7/7 - 50 minutes on the stairs at the gym

7/8 - 110 minutes   30 minutes intense weights at the gym.  Then 80 minutes running at the park with my daughter. 

305/1200 - think I might fail this month
