Weekend Review: Personal challenge

I downloaded this Sunday afternoon and it's for forecast for Today. We are in the upper right hand corner so we are suppose to be in the 70's and 80's. Looks like the middle part of the country is still very hot, so I sure hope you all are staying safe and cool. Staying cool must be your personal challenge! Be safe out there. How are you staying cool?

Since it was very hot up here I took it easy and didn't push myself too much in my 2400 mile challenge.  I only rode the bike once all week and did most of my workouts early in the morning. In all I still managed to log in 66.75 miles.
walking - 14.6 miles
stationary bike - 4.15 miles
weights - 5 miles
Ab exercise - 16 miles
Step/Zumba - 27 miles

My YTD today - 1671.39, leaving 729 to go by the end of year. Do you think I will make it?  
We ate a lot of  salads which I love but we did go out for soft serve ice cream a few times. No, it is not low carb, but oh boy were they good!!


  1. Staying cool by staying inside with the air conditioning running 24/7. It did cool off a little late yesterday afternoon ... I was tempted to open windows and give the air conditioner a break ... but it's going to be back into the mid 90's (or close) again today. At least we're no longer the hottest part of the nation.

    Hopefully your hot weather will pass soon so you can get back to accumulation those miles. ;-)

  2. We have been staying in the air conditioning and hitting he pool at my parents. Thankfully they have a big umbrella so we have some shade in the water. We are getting a little break today with less humidity and highs of only 89*!! I hope to be able to take the kids to play outside today. We have all missed that.

    Have a great Monday!

  3. Hi Lynn Marie ~
    There are people like you who exercise and stay skinny, and then there are the rest of us who wish to be skinny w/o exercise. Sigh. Yes, you will make it!
    We, too, are in one of the cooler spots in the country, and thanking the Lord for it.

  4. It's still pretty hot here. We start VBS tonight, so we'll be out in the heat alot. Still should be a lot of fun.

    Yes, I believe you will make your goal!

  5. I have no doubts that you will achieve your goal! Ice cream is our reward for dealing with the heat! LOL I ate some twice over the weekend :)

  6. 66 miles, that is so awesome. I didn't even do one mile! I love your energy. Can't believe the heat wave across the USA.


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
