Woohoo …………. need I say more?

The plan has worked, I’m very, very happy with this months result. I finished the 4 week plan I followed on Sunday and moved on to another plan from a different book for the month September. I have tracked 31 days in a row (except for the day we had a BBQ party) in August and will continue this in September. It’s to early to say I’m going to reach goal weight this time, first I have to see for myself how September will be going. But so far, so good.

I did reach the goal of 15 workouts this month. The kilometres/miles I didn’t reach probably because most runs in August were a struggle. Hopefully do better in September on this.
