Goals - June report

June is done! Let's review the goals:
  1. Lose three pounds each month.
    Fail: up a pound and a half.  As you can see, I'm not weighing myself every single day either - I know when things aren't going well and I just don't want to see it.  I'm frustrated, deeply, about this!
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    Smashed: 26 days with workouts - some with two workouts!  But unfortunately, I keep proving that you can't out-exercise a bad diet...
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Smashed!  Averaged 12k steps a day - with 19k steps one day!  Woo!  Still had a couple of sick days in there, but overall got a lot more exercise in (thanks to kiddo being in a morning summer school session - but that's done now so who knows what July will hold for us...)

  4. Through the first six months of the year, I've got 1,991,855 steps!  That's 11k steps a day average!  Nice!

  5. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    Met: Our garden is happily churning out zucchini, so I'm finding new ways to use it ;)
  6. Make gratitude a priority.
    Met: Can always improve on this!
Honestly, I'm not holding out much hope for July.  I really would love to STOP GAINING WEIGHT, but my schedule for this month is terrible.  I know just meeting the steps & workout goals will be a challenge, and frankly, we all know that meeting those goals isn't exactly taking weight off (but it must be keeping more from piling on at least?).
