A look at June...

July Goals
Weight Loss: 10 pounds

I didn't start until June 9th so I'm very happy with these numbers. July will be more of the same. The last two days I've been fighting a nasty head cold that Gracie decided to pass on to me and now Ashli has it. I'm actually feeling much better tonight then I did this morning. I was mess with a terrible sore throat, runny nose, and sneezing.

I've consumed 1897 calories today which I am happy with considering I'm not feeling that well. Usually I don't eat much past the 1500 range when I'm sick so not too bad. I will be running again but right now the focus is lowering my body fat. I'm thinking probably August/September time frame. In the mean time for cardio it will be all low impact!

I still have a date with the Richmond marathon but it will not be this year. I am looking at November 10th 2009 as the date. Really school set me back; I should have waited on the school and just kept on going with my training! Oh well, can't look back, just have to look ahead and take the right steps to get me to that finish line. Oh what a day that will be!

I will leave you with this...

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more. Brother David Steindl-Rast

Wow! I wish I could just "get back on track" and lose weight that quickly! Keep it up and good luck on July.
