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

Trying to do the right thing with three kids and a hubby.

You're welcome lab!

Welcome avonmommy


8/4 1 30 minute mile walked + 45 minutes of picking up sticks = 75
8/5 1 mile and took trash to road, 35 minutes + 45 minutes shopping and putting groceries away + 25 minutes of walking back and forth to move the hurricane shutters + 35 minutes of picking up sticks + 5 minutes on my exercise bike before it croaked in protest = 145
25 + 75 + 145 = 245/2,000

May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)
