I made my goal of 30,000 calories burned in July.
I estimate that I did about 63 hours on the treadmill

This month I'm aiming for 75 hours. I'm not going to count calories this time.
I'm also not going to track my food.
It's still going to be high raw, lots of fruit, and definitely more green salads.

Last month I lost 2 inches around the waist.
My goal for August is 2 more inches.


4:00 PM - 2 hours on treadmill
10:30 - weak bench press workout, I've lost some strength in the last month
11:00 - 1 hour on treadmill

3 hours on treadmill total for the day

Good luck in August. I followed your progress in July and was very impressed by how consistent and dedicated you are. Great job!

Thanks Mark

My dedication is fueled by wanting to lose my excess weight.
Seeing results also helps a lot. Very motivational.
I'm really hoping that I can lose 2 more inches this month.
Gotta stick to the clean raw diet.

Just a little info on some research from Japan. They found that you burn more fat if you divide your cardio exercise up. They found that the athletes had more fatty acids in their blood when they treadmilled for 30 minutes, rested for 20 minutes, and then treadmilled for another 30 minutes, this all opposed to a continuous 60 minutes of treadmilling. Something to think about if you have the extra time to rest (and perhaps to get the most out of your cardio for burning calories).

Thanks Gaia
Did the research show significantly more fat burned?
If I walk for 2 hours at the gym and rest for 20 minutes every 1/2 hour,
that would add another hour to my time in the gym.

I don't know if it would make a difference in the study, but I walk with an incline instead of run.

Well, my scratchy throat isn't going away.
It seems to get worse when I treadmill.
So I'm going to take at least a couple more days off.
I will still try to do a little lifting unless I start coughing.

My neighbor mentioned that it could be the smoke from all the fires we have.
I noticed the smoke smell was very bad one night, I hope he is right.

3:00 PM - Barbell Bench Press and Abs

I decided to get on the treadmill with my scratchy throat.
I did 2 hours at a less incline and it wasn't too bad.
So until my throat feels better, I'll just use less incline.
The downside was I burned about 10% less calories per hour.
Oh well, 90% of what I usually do is better than nothing.

10:00 PM - 2 hours on treadmill


11 hours total for the month
