June for me has been a month of ups and downs, mostly ups which is good but the downs have effected my weight loss a bit I have to say. I've been struggling with my emotions and resulted in lots of eating bad foods and going over my propoints but somehow I have still managed to lose 5.5lbs.
My biggest achievement and what I think has helped with the weight loss is the increase of steps. In June I have increased my daily goal from 6,000 up to 8,000 steps a day now which is a big difference, especially with the additional active minutes I have been doing.
My goals for July are fairly simple as going to be a very long and emotional month for me. I have a week off in the middle as its going to be inquest into my nans death from 2 years ago. Crazy its taken so long right? Unforunately that does mean we have been receiving lots of paperwork and statements to read before the actual day and its been emotional.
- stay within my propoints - I seem to be going over my weekly/activity points a lot recently and having to have extra good days at end of week to make up for it. So this month I want to focus instead on staying within my points.
- be aiming for 10k steps a day by end of month - At the moment I am aiming for 8k steps a day so hoping to increase by 500 a week.
- lose 4lbs to get my 2st award - I think this is realistic its average of 1lb a week and providing I stick to my first goal no reason why shouldn't happen even with my weeks holiday in middle.
- give myself a break its going to be a rough month - If I do slip up its ok, have to draw a line and refocus and think about whats best for me this month.
