Tomorrow is the Feast of the Pentecost and for some will be their time to transition to a new goal. Mine will change for several reasons:

The weather is so hot down in the deep south that the heat is oppressive much of the time and takes the enjoyment out of the exercise - not to mention health issues.

Going inside to the YMCA offers to diversity in what I can do. Treadmill, bicycle, elliptical and swimming. SO... my challenge to myself is going to go in minutes beginning tomorrow.
I am very content with my accomplishment below. Since beginning to exercise and changing my eating habits in mid-late February, I have walked close to 120 miles, and I am down 26 pounds.

I will keep up with my miles on a separate ticker from my exercise minutes - but I am going to set my goal to 180 minutes a week - that's 30 minutes a day with a day of rest there. I haven't decided the duration of the ticker yet, so I may just set it up for one week and make changes so I can keep up with it weekly. Clear as mud -eh?
What are your goals for the summer?

26 pounds. That's great--and healthy eating and exercise too. Doesn't get any better!
