This is how many fitness minutes I had: Not exactly sure.
My numbers are skewed due to a the Father's Day/Weekend garage cleaning at my dad's. I just couldn't put down 480 minutes for that weekend, although that was the time we worked on the garage!
Here is what I did:
- 4 lap swims - 124 minutes, 5750 yards
-1 open water swim, 30 minutes
-3 Lifting sessions, totaling 26,500 pounds lifted
-4 pilates sessions, 40/45 mins each
-11 walks and/or runs, 408 minutes, 21.7 miles (3 5Ks - 1 of them a race!)
-1 ungodly terrible time on the elliptical. dislike! 18 mins.
-2 bike rides, 56 mins
-1 pilates video, 30 mins
-1 fat burning ab attack video, 30 mins
|Perhaps I should write "rest" a little smaller, they stick out!|
One of my goals is to do at least two new to me things a month. June had me doing pilates, which I had done on a tape, but not a live class. I like it! The beginner classes are good, but I heard from some friends that the beginner class at the downtown Y kicks your @$$ every time! I might have to go to that sometime!
And June was also the first time I had ridden a bike in at least 2 years. I don't love it. I don't know if it's an incorrect bike, or trying to get this much weight around on 2 wheels! haha
I lost 5 lbs in June, which I am proud of and grateful for. That last week was hard, mentally. I think it was my nutrition that kicked my butt. That last week, I was eating so healthy at work. Then I would come home and had stuff like pizza, cake, or frozen yogurt. Baking that cake sounded like a great idea, but my brother in law, Coach only at like 4 pieces. I definitely ate the rest that week! And yes, it was delicious, if you were wondering! I felt like I was actually trying to eat well at work, then sabotaged myself. Notes on what not to do this month! :)
Oh, I also made it 6 months without getting anything from the vending machines! Slightly insignificant, but I think if I did get something from there, that I would just want to get chocolate, chips, etc everyday.
In the end, June made me feel good that I can keep up a 20 day per month workout routine. I am liking all of the outdoor stuff that comes along with summer! My clothes are feeling looser, a couple of skirts fit SO much better in the stomach, it's unreal! My towel can ALMOST wrap around me with no gaps! This month was also when I crossed the 5% lost threshold.
Total weight lost as of 6/30/12: 15 pounds!
