A New Month

Today starts a new month and as with almost every blog I've read today, I decided to make a fresh start with the new month.  I did not exercise formally last week.  I knew I would have a hard time passing up family time for elliptical time.  So, this month J-boy and I have made a pact.  My part includes getting back on the elliptical at least three days per week.  I do best with five times per week, but I am still working on the achievable goal stuff too!

My birthday is the 25th of this month, and between now and then I have no parties, reunions, pot lucks or anything else to hinder me with my eating or my exercise.  I'm ready for it.  Because once my birthday hits, we have J-boy's on September 5, and our anniversary on September 11!!  Then it is on to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas - oh my!  I've got to make the most of these easy three weeks.  I will and I will post my progress here.


  1. I can't believe it's already August. Time sure does fly by...

    Good luck with your exercise routine :)

  2. Sounds like you've got a workable plan for August. That's the way to be successful. I learned last month a birthday can be a huge motivator!!

  3. eek! I knew August was coming but it didn't hit me that it was here until reading your post! :)

    Good going on the excersie routine! I'm cheering you on!

  4. Good plans! I thought I was silly to be thinking about the holidays and all recently, but after reading it in black and white, its all coming fast! Yikes!

  5. You are doing well! Making a plan for exercise is always good!


  6. I actually exercised today - only two more days to go this week to meet my goal.
