Month-End Review, June

What was new this month?

I got a friendly e-mail from Groupon that my time at The Heights recreation center was coming to an end. I was able to use a different machine, the treadclimber, and I also shot hoops which I haven't done in ages. I really enjoy sinking baskets and chasing the ball around. The actual tossing of the ball doesn't burn many calories but you have to shoot baskets as if no one is watching or something like that. Right?

I also did more yoga this month than I've probably ever done. Frankly, it was necessary after Kate's Cardio and Muscle class on Tuesday.

Here's the exercise breakdown for this month:

10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones!

  • 10 Minute Stretch, 4 x's

  • 10 Minute Solution: Quick Sculpt Pilates

  • Standing Pilates Sculpt, 1 x

  • Strength and Flexibility Pilates, 1 x

  • Total Body Toner, 1 x

  • Bicycling, 7 x’s

    Cardio and Muscle Class, 5 x's

    Mowed the Lawn
    , 1 x

    Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training

  • 15-Minute Upper Body Circuit, 1 x

  • Rock Climbing
    , 5 x's

    Shooting Hoops, 4 x's

    Swimming, 4 x's

    TreadClimber, 3 x's

    Walking (with bouts of jogging), 7 x's

    Crunch: Candlelight Yoga, 4 x's

    I continued to enjoy the view and trek from the isolated portion of parking lots.

    Thanks again to Gingersnapper for reminding me of bonus exercise.

    Did you realize your June goals? Do anything different?


    1. That is a nice looking calendar!

      My only goal this month was to resume working out regularly, so I guess I hit it. Always room for improvement, but I'm off to a good start.

    2. This month I have been biking regularly and can tell a difference in my speed and endurance level. I love that! You did a great job and worked out a lot - congrats.

    3. @gingersnapper,

      I try to make my calendars beautiful. ;)

      Glad that you're off to a good start. Keep it up...


      Thanks and it looks like the new bike is working out for you. I love endurance. :)
