Month-End Review, July

"You tell your body what you need it to do and it will do it." J. Michaels on Northern Family episode of Losing It With Jillian

About six days into July, I gazed at my calendar with six X's and realized that I wanted to see an unbroken chain. I can do it, I think -- exercise for 31 days in a row and I did it.

About 12 days in, I started to feel quite fatigued. Day 21 had me wondering if I would be able to continue and I could definitely see the benefit of rest days. When I went to unfold from a seated position, my body let me know that it was cooperating but...

Here's the breakdown:

10 Minute Solution: 5 Day Get Fix Mix

  • Power Yoga, 1 x

  • 10 Minute Solution: Fitness Ball Workouts

  • Arms and Shoulders, 1 x

  • 10 Minute Solution: Knock-Out Body, Wii Version, 5 x's

    10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones!

  • 10 Minute Stretch, 1 x

  • Army Crawls, 2 x's

    Bicycling, 1 x

    Cardio and Muscle Class, 3 x's

    Mowed the Lawn
    , 2 x’s

    Personal Training with Jackie: Power Circuit Training

  • 15-Minute Lower Body Circuit, 1 x

  • 15-Minute Upper Body Circuit, 4 x's

  • Rock Climbing, 8 x's

    Swimming, 7 x's

    Walking, 16 x's

    Wii Fit (Plus, Sports), 5 x's

    Yoga for Weight Loss, 1 x

    Here I am in the midst of getting old-fashioned exercise on the pedestrian obstacle course that is the Las Vegas Strip. Let me tell you: my feet were no match for The Strip...

    How did your July turn out???

    Disclaimer: I received 10 Minute Solution: Knock-Out Body (Wii) and Yoga for Weight Loss without charge.


    1. Great job on making X's on EVERY DAY this month! So cool! I like to add up my calories each month that I burned now that I wear that Polar HRmonitor so I will go do that!!! :) WHOOHOO!

    2. Great job, woman!
      My July was bizzzzzzzzz-eeeeeeee :)
      My daughter kept asking, "when does summer vacation start?" ha!
      technically it started in june, but we've been busy with fun summer school classes, Tball, swim lessons, and Vacation Bible School.
      we have all of August free, to regroup for September!

    3. @TJ,

      Thanks. :) I keep having visions of getting the Bodybugg system since I would love to see how many calories I burn -- in general.


      I love it that your daughter has her eyes on the prize and I'm glad that your August schedule is light. Thanks. :)

    4. What a great visual of your progress. Congratulations. July was slow for me, but August is entirely a different story. School starting back and with it all the activities.

    5. @Diane,

      I'm definitely a visual person so it helps. Good luck with the preparation for school activities and such.


      Thanks woman. Change IS happening. :)

    6. Angela,

      As always, thanks for your support. :)
