August Challenge

I had assumed that I would be at goal by the end of last summer. That was a mistake, I let things slide and have spent an extra year trapped by my bad habits. Over this summer though, I have slowly been changing. One big difference has been my attitude to activity.


I have done alright these last 6 weeks, but now I have just over a month before my holiday, and I want every day to count. To really see a big difference inside 12 weeks would be awesome. I had 35lbs to lose to get to my goal, I've shifted 18 so I'm right on track!

Now I am realising losing weight  can be achieved just by eating less, but getting healthy and slim needs a little more. Regular exercise and proper hydration are vital. The PEWC is helping me with the hydration, now hopefully HealthyLoserGals August challenge will keep the fire burning for my activity levels!

Of the 31 days of August, I commit to exercise 24 of those days.

1 - 4 miles hill walk
2 - 5k run!
3 - 90 minutes walk
4 - c25k w8d3
5 - 150 minutes walk (7 miles)
