Goals - June report

June is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose an average of one pound a week - uhm, yeah, smashed this one. ;)  As you can see by the lovely graph generated by Happy Scale, the weight dropped quite dramatically when I started the detox (moving average down 10.4 pounds for the month).  It slowed down a bit - even had a gain in there - but overall it's still going down and that's what matters.  It will be interesting to see how this goes in July when I transition off the full detox.  The awesome news - because of the weight loss with the detox, I am back on track for the one pound a week lost for the entire year.  Woo!
  2. Work out at least 20 times a month - smashed this one too!  29 times this month - two days with no workouts and one with two.  I'm really trying to not only not skip more than one day in a row, but not to do too many double workout days (especially while on the detox).  I do need to do more weights though.  I did try a new class this month - a pilates class that ended up being very fast and set to uptempo music.  It was way out of my league and I left after 20 minutes with pain in my shoulders and hips.  No good.  Maybe I can try something different this month.  
  3. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month - met!  I did several new recipes, including a meatball recipe that totally bombed (it used baking soda and cream of tartar to supposedly make it lighter since there were no breadcrumbs, and it was very bitter instead).  Definitely going to keep going on this!
  4. Make an effort to eat clean and healthy the majority of the time - smashed, obviously ;)  Clearly this worked for me this month, so even though I'll be transitioning off the complete detox in July, I need to keep an emphasis on this and keep the momentum going.
