Celebrating the Red, White and Blue!!


Out with June - in with July - camping and more camping is on the schedule, a well deserved visit with Mer (for sure I will have pictures), a 5K walk/run event, seeing my god-daughter in The Wiz, a Speed Dating adventure, time for me, short "reward" trip to Santa Cruz at the end of the month and then it will be back to school for Aman - where is the summer going?

 REVIEW - I will have to say that I was not as successful as I wanted to be on the June Boom challenge. Busy-ness took over and I was unable to exercise each day of June. However, I do believe that the three days I was on my feet for over 14 hours a day, loading, unloading, walking, setting up, organizing and being on the go with Day Camp could make up for some of the days I was unable to work out in June. I don't know if I did something different or challenged myself. However, I am glad to say that I MAINTAINED. My goal for June was to maintain the weight loss and I am holding steady between 37 and 40 pounds down. I am very proud of what I have accomplished since January 2011. I am fitting into a Size 18, down from a "should have been wearing a bigger size 24". I am not looking back. Moving forward and going to continue to drop the weight. I am feeling good, confident, feeling healthly (except for the annoying foot issue I am having, going to work that out in the coming month).

July goals:
  • Drop 10 more pounds
Enough Said - there you have it - moving forward - moving onward and downward!!!


** another footnote - this is Post #200 - AWESOME - well, sort of - think Mer was going to post something, but it has not officially made it to the "publish" side, but I can say that this one is 200 - I claim it, all for me me me.***

HAVE A SAFE, WONDERFUL AND HAPPY 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND!!!! WAVE THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE - THANKS TO ALL THE MILITARY OUT THERE !!!
