YAY!! Thanks for starting this month's thread. I'm all in....

I have even more going on this month...I'm moving two kids to college. I don't think I'll get 1500 this month either. But things should slow down after the 17th. So maybe 1000 or 1200 if get moving after the 17th?

I don't know why I've had such a hard time this summer staying on track.

8/1 - 30 minutes on the stairs at the gym
8/2 - 45 minutes walking with hubby and friend
8/3 - 45 minute run including stretching


120/1000 or 1200
