July was another blah kind of month. I didn’t workout much the last 2 weeks because my shoulder and then my right knee was bothering me. I find that the summer is the hardest time for me to stay motivated. It’s just so hot and humid and I don’t want to do anything. LOL! But still, I didn’t do terrible.
|July 1, 2013||August 1, 2013||Difference|
|Total inches lost this month:||-4.00|
|Total weight lost this month:||166.6||161.0||-5.60|
Even though I wasn’t my best, I still lost 5.6 pounds and 4 inches overall. I am almost in 150s. Now some of you are probably asking how far down I want to go. Well, to be honest, I don’t have a real number yet. I was 150 pounds most of my young adult life, so I am aiming for that first. Once I get there, I will evaluate my body and see where I want to go. Admittedly, I have more muscle now so the numbers are going to get less and less important; while my body composition becomes more of a focus. I can see that I still have a lot of body fat. According to the calipers I just bought, I am at 27.8%, which is higher than recommended, but still within the realm”not too bad”. Looking at all the jiggle on my body, it’s not great. I need more muscle mass, less fat. That’s becoming so much more obvious every day.
Anyway, August is gonna be pretty tough. I have the Tobay Triathlon on the 24th, so I will be focusing my training on that. Swim, Bike, Run, repeat.
So tell me, how did July go for you?
