Closing the books for June

I can't believe it, but the summer is already 1/3 over for this chica. Let's reflect on June a bit. A lot has been going one...
  • Overall, the weather has been pretty good with only a handful of rainy days here and there, and the temps have usually been between 75 and 90... which is perfect....until the humidity picks up in July.
  • I tagged along with Lisa and joined her in Streaking through the month. Here's what the numbers looked like...
    • Total days: 30 (24:40:33)
      # of Swims: 12 (6:43:00)
      # of Rides: 12 (9:18:15)
      # of Runs: 11 (5:12:18)
      # of ST: 3 (1:02:00)
      # of Walks: 2 (1:02:00)
      # of Turbo Sculpt Sessions: 3 (2:00:00)
      # of Turbo Ab Jam Sessions: 7 (2:20:00)
      # of Softball Games: 6
  • Here are the stats for the month as well....
    • SWIM - 16200 meters (or 10.06 miles) ....... 3200 meters in May
    • BIKE - 170.87 miles (mostly outdoors!) ...... 82.77 miles in May
    • RUN - 26.57 miles (my lowest this year) ..... 34.22 miles in May
  • I also participated in Viv's Weight loss Challenge. I have increased my workouts and decreased the bad foods. All in all I am pretty happy with the 6.2 lbs dropped this month!! Now the key it to keep it off and maybe drop some more.... slowly.
  • On top of all of this, I am currently in the market for a home of my own. I met with a wonderful realtor last week and looked at about 7 homes, all different sizes... townhomes, twinhomes, condos. For the past week I have been looking online for more to look at and crunching numbers like crazy. Who knew this could be that much work?!
  • And today? Today I started the crazy 100 Pushup Challenge. I was only able to do 7 pushups on my initial test, but starting W1D1 today... I completed 28 pushups altogether.
Keep on keeping on, y'all!

L*I*S*A said...

Looks like a good month!!

RunnerGirl said...

Your totals look great! I loved my streak I did before vacation, it was a great motivator for me. Not that I think about it, I guess I've pretty much been on a streak since I've been back too, must be habit by now :)

Running Jayhawk said...

What a successful month! 6 pounds is an awesome number to drop AND you're looking for a new place? You're such a rockstar. Keep up the awesome work.

Stef said...

Great stats!! Good on the pushups too. I'm afraid to try to see how many I can do . . .

Good luck in finding a home. It IS a lot of work but will be worth it.

Mendy said...

Look at your month! Just amazing!! You did so well. I may have to try the push-up challenge. It will help me on my Navy PRT since we have to do real push-ups with it.

Glad you are putting in all the time and effort it takes to find a home. It's soooo important and worth it! Very smart. Good luck on your new endeavor! May July be just as awesome as Jun was.

Running To Stand Still said...

Wow on 6 pounds! That is great. Good job with the streaking too.

I really have to look into the push-up challenge.

Marcy said...

Looking good with the numbers chica!! And 6 lbs?!? WHOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!! Fantastic!!

Chad Aaron Sayban said...

Looks like your training is going very well. Keep up the good work.

Oh, and in answer to your reading and watching movies on a rainy day, you are right...there is nothing better.

Jess said...

Great job on the month of June's work and weight loss!

Ms. Math said...

Congrats on the weight loss! Good luck with the house-hunting. Keep us posted!

Lisa - Slow & Steady said...

Great month all around.

I feel left out. Everyone is doing the pushup challenge, but I totally stink at push-ups. :(

P.O.M. said...

Nice job on the loss missy! 6 pounds in a month is tough!

I soooooo want to get my own home, but am such a freak about it. Total worry wort. But sick of renting for sure! Plus, to get something I could afford here, I would have to move to the Ghetto with a capital G!

Nicole said...

What an impressive month even if you were running miles were the lowest. And, 6.2 pounds - that's amazing! Best of luck of the house hunt.

Nicole said...

BTW, I don't know how I got my background that way. I had the idea and my husband did it all. I'll see if he can tell me simply and I'll let you know.

Viv said...

You sure don't mess around with that streaking stuff ;-)

What a fantastic June for you and super job on the loss. I am so proud of all the challengers like a hen Mom. I really did not do anything but get you guys emails, but I still feel like the Mom who drops the kids off at the skating rink. LOL!

TNTcoach Ken said...

Looks like the month of June was a good one. Keep up the great work.

D10 said...

Nice numbers for the month. Six pounds is crazy, well done.

How exciting looking for a new home. I loved going into houses and checking things out. My husband on the other hand wasn't as enthused. Good luck.

akshaye said...
