August has been a crazy awesome month. I've been working on my health goals. This isn't limited to making sure I exercise and eat correctly, but it also means I'm working on getting enough sleep, spending time outside and challenging myself to do things that scare me. I have a goal and I'm obsessed.

I want to lose 50lbs and I'm going to do it in the next 6 months. 

Losing 50lbs means the following: 
  • I'll be at a healthy BMI. 
  • I'll fit in a size M for the first time ever and wear a size 6-8 jeans. 
  • I'll shop at Anthropologie for the first time (and not just in the home and accessories section). 
  • I'll run a half marathon and kill it. 
  • I'll do a pullup. 
  • I'll get a tattoo (maybe). 
Over the last month, I've kicked things into high gear.
  • I've been working out 5xs a week. I've never worked out so much in my life. My HRM says that I've worked out over 20:24hrs and burned 13,677 calories in the past 4 weeks 
  • I cut out dairy and sugar. I thought dairy was going to be hard, but I did it. 
  • I've lost 10lbs, a pant, and shirt size. I'm back in a L/12 for the first time in ages. 
  • I cleaned and front squatted 65lbs.
  • I've biked 20 and then 30 miles. 
  • I've run for over 50 minutes without stopping.  
  • I've never felt better. 
I have 50lbs to go and I've never felt so sure it could happen.

7/12 --> 6/13 --> 8/13
