June Fitness Wrap Up; On to July

Well, my “30 Day Shred” became more of a “do 15 days of this video, and throw in some running/biking/strength training when you get bored” — which I did. It’s probably a no-duh moment, but a 20 minute video on repeat isn’t going to work miracles. But it was a good tool, and I’m glad I own it. I plan on popping it in on days (like today) when leaving the house isn’t at all appealing (it’s 116º out, ouch).

Anyway, I’d be lying if I was super excited about my results — I’m not. I don’t see any bit of difference from the original stats taken a month ago. But the measuring tools that be indicate a small change.

Weight: -2 lbs

Upper waist: -.5″

Lower waist: -.5″

Everything else: The same. Which is ok, because I’m not too worried about the numbers.

At any rate, I’m looking forward to continuing my fitness expedition. The harsh reality is that with a baby, it’s not as easy as it used to be to set a summer goal and go balls to the wall. So I’m trying (trying) to make some personal goals this month that are obtainable.


Run 3 miles, 3x a week (I’m not into waking up early… and it doesn’t dip below 105º until after 9pm, so I’m still considering the “how” here.

Strength train 2x a week

Give up soda completely. (Except when I go see Harry Potter. This will be a tough goal. I’m not a huge soda drinker, but I like the caffeine rush and the bubbles when the craving strikes.)

Three goals seems really doable.

  1. Sounds like you have some great goals. Giving up soda is hard. We stopped buying it at home, but when we go out sometimes I do get it. I don’t like coffee, so I used to use it for energy, but working out has really given me the energy. It is HOT there. Goodness. Thanks for linking up and good luck this month.
