These were my goals for August:
~ 1,500 fitness minutes.
~ Vary the routine a bit: elliptical, Zumba (on my Wii), exercise DVDs (like Walk Away the Pounds or Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred).
~ Aim for 5 – 7 servings of fruits/veggies each day. I stink at this some days.
~ 500 squats during the month. That’s a bit more than 30 squats per day, 4 days per week.
And this is how I did on them:
~ 1,460 fitness minutes. So close.
~ I did vary the routine a bit, but I did a lot of plain ol’ walking too… although I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that either!
~ I did not get 5 – 7 servings every day but I certainly made more of an effort and did better than I have been doing recently. And it was fun to figure out how to add more to my day!
~ To be honest I completely forgot about this goal until the last week of the month. I had done a few as part of my strength training routine through the month, but not nearly enough to add up to 500.
Not too bad overall (except the squats). I do feel like I’m getting a bit burned out on so much exercise every day. I think I’m going to scale it back a bit this month just to give myself more breathing room and a chance to focus more on other things.
Goals for September
~ 1,000 fitness minutes
~ Strength training: 30 mins, 4x week
~ 300 squats through the month (maybe I should work my way up :))
~ Zumba once per week
