Would you like to read my August fitness challenge report, which is my tenth monthly report, because seeing my results after walking and exercising every day for ten months, you may get motivated to do the same?
I started this personal fitness challenge on the first of November last year, and I have continued each and every month thereafter. I do the best I can to lose weight and I feel much better in my body now than ten months ago, all without too much effort and food restriction.
I use my Samsung smart phone and the Samsung Health app to record and track my fitness progress every day.
I started to write these fitness challenge reports on Steemit in November 2017 and I have published one each month. I document my progress, see at the end of the month my results so I can plan for the next month, and I am also accountable to you and myself.
This challenge consists in doing a 2-kilometer walk and exercising 30 minutes daily (I started with 40 minutes the first six months), I eat healthier and more balanced meals now with less meat, and drink veggie-fruit juices daily.

That's the first time, at 53 years old that I exercise so consistently and I can say that I feel ten years younger now. I am looking forward to exercising every day.
If you copy what I do, I believe that you will see good results for you too.
Let's see my results for this tenth month.
Fitness Challenge - August Report
I am glad to report that I have walked my daily 2 kilometers this month every day, except for 3 days, two days my excuse was heavy rain all day, and another day I had to do the Visa application for my wife and daughter for our upcoming trip to France, and it took almost all day.
I exercised every day, except for six days, with the same excuses as for walking and also a very busy schedule in August.
I realize that I have missed the same number of days as last month.
Let's see what the app is saying for "Walking."
This is when I started in November 2017 and up to July 2018.
This is for August 2018.
I walked 28 days in August in 34 sessions, for a total of 58.37 kilometers in 11 hours and 18 minutes.
In July I walked 61.8 kilometers, in June I walked 59.74 kilometers, in May I walked 69.22 kilometers, in April I walked 64.08 kilometers, in March I walked 68.47 kilometers, in February I walked 62.35 kilometers, in January 69.53 kilometers, in December, 66.59 kilometers and in November 62.26 kilometers.
I walked less in August, even if I walked the same number of days as last month.
In 10 months I have walked 642.41 kilometers in total and I am impressed!
Let's have a look at my exercise this August.
These are for the 9 months since November 2017.
This is for August 2018.
I missed 6 days of exercising this month, as you can see below and this is to remind me that I should try not to miss days that often.
I still have exercised for 12 hours and 51 minutes in August, which is exactly the same as for July.
I burned 7,272 calories according to the app.
My weight loss results.
Let's see if I successfully lost weight in August even though I missed the same number of days on my fitness commitment, the same as July.
These are for nine months from November 2017.
This is for August 2018.
My minimum weight is exactly the same as last month, 73.4 kilograms. My average weight is also the same as last month, 73.9 kilograms.
The only improvement I made is that my maximum weight is 74.5 kilograms now, when it was 74.8 kilograms last month.
At least I have successfully maintained my weight.
Now, if I look back from where I started in November.
Average weight loss: 80.8 - 73.9 = 6.9 kilograms
Weight loss: 81.4 (max) - 73.4 (min) = 8 kilograms
I am still very pleased with my results and I know I am at a point where it's going to be difficult to get below 73 kilograms. Anyway, my next target for September is 73 kilograms or less.
I had a juice almost every day this August, and this helped me maintain my weight without too much effort. You can do the same, start juicing.
