30 Days of Commitment Challenge: July

It's safe to say that July snuck up on me this year! Can y'all believe that we're already half way through the year? I mean, we're now closer to this Christmas than we are to last Christmas and that makes my heart sing :)

Now it's time to get updated on my 30 days of commitment challenge! Just remember that I switched June & July! Check out my other recaps here: April, May, June

Recap of June Goals:
My Goals:
  • Try a different workout each day! It doesn't have to be the whole workout, but part of it to spice things up a bit!
  • Utilize the workouts posted on Pinterest and on blogs I love!
  • Create and share a new workout each week.
  • Get a gym membership {so I can workout inside} to beat the heat and utilize different equipment for all my workouts. This won't happen until at least the 2nd week of June though
How I did:
  • Overall, I feel like I really accomplished something. I didn't overkill it and some days my workouts were a long walk with Miss Maggie, but it was longer than my usual walk and I put more into it. I feel like I truly went out of my way every day to get a little something extra in!
  • Check out workouts #1-17 here!
  • Here's what happened the rest of the month!
June 18: 3 mile treadmill run, 10 minutes on the bike, 15 minutes core
June 19: 30 minute PT session legs
June 20: 2 mile walk, Summer Shape Up Plan Arms
June 22: I was with my GroupEx girls and we were in the pool talking about working out and personal training
June 23: 2.5 mile treadmill run, arm circuit
June 24: 30 minute PT session arms, 30 minute run (3.55 miles)
June 25: 3.35 mile run with Chandra
June 26: 30 minute PT session legs, 2.25 miles on elliptical
June 27: 2 mile walk/jog/sprint with the pup
June 28: 1 hour boot camp
June 29: 5 mile run!
June 30: 1 hour step class

Overall:
I definitely give myself an A+ for June. Yes, the first several days of my workouts included walking around cities. But I took over 20,000 steps each day and I worked out 4 times at the gym on my vacation...sounds pretty stellar to me. I look forward to continuing with this through marathon training season! More long walks with the pup on my off days to come!

Here's how I plan to be successful in July:
  • Eat gluten free! A cheat here and there is okay.
  • Take at least 2 recipes with gluten and turn them into gluten free recipes! I'll share them on the blog!
  • Try at least 2 new GF recipes and recap how they turned out!
  • Follow me on my Going Gluten Free Pinterest board!

I'm looking forward to this month's challenge! With Charlotte here, it'll be easier to eat GF because she has a gluten intolerance. I'm hoping this helps me lessen my dependence on bread a little ;) but let's be real, that probably won't happen.


Happy July y'all!
