Would you like to read my July fitness challenge report, which is my ninth monthly report, because seeing my results after exercising and walking daily for nine months, you may get the motivation to do the same?
I started this personal fitness challenge on the first of November last year, and I have continued each following month. I do my best to lose weight and I feel better in my body more than ever now without too much effort and food restriction.
I use my Samsung smart phone and the Samsung Health application to record and track my progress every day.
I started to write these fitness challenge reports on Steemit in November 2017 and I have published one every month. I document my progress, see at the end of the month my results, and I am 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, and drink veggie-fruit juices daily.

- Fitness Challenge - November Report
- Fitness Challenge - December Report
- Fitness Challenge - January Report
- Fitness Challenge - February Report
- Fitness Challenge - March Report
- Fitness Challenge - April Report
- Fitness Challenge - May Report
- Fitness Challenge - June Report
That's the first time, at 53 years old that I exercise daily for such a long period of time and after nine months, I am looking forward to it every day.
I have a diet with very little meat now, more vegetables, and I drink more veggie-fruit juices, which help a lot in getting weight lose results.
Doing this, I have completely eliminated my fatty liver problem and this was confirmed by two blood tests 3 months apart. That is certainly better than constantly having medication and my doctor congratulated me.
If you have serious health issues though, see your doctor like I did. I am only sharing what works for me.
If you follow my lead, I believe that you will see good results for you too.
Let's see my results for this ninth month.
Fitness Challenge - July Report
I am glad to report that I have walked my daily 2 kilometers this month every day, except for 3 days, one day my excuse was heavy rain all day, the second day I had to do some administrative papers in a government office that took too much time, and the third day, I was too tired to do it all day.
I exercised every day, except for six days, with the same excuses as for walking and also traveling and not having fitness equipment at disposal.
I have learned to be a bit more flexible and if I miss a few days, then it's not a big deal.
Let's see what the app is saying for "Walking."
This is when I started in November 2017 and up to April 2018.
This is for May, June and July 2018.
I walked 28 days in July in 32 sessions, for a total of 61.8 kilometers in 11 hours and 45 minutes.
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.
Even if I missed 3 days, I still walked more this month. Two walks out of the ordinary were when I went to Pattaya for a long weekend.
In 9 months I have walked 584.04 kilometers in total and that's kind of scary!
As I always have my eyes on the ground during my walks, I regularly find coins that the universe send me.
I am a money magnet!
Let's have a look at my exercise this July.
These are for the 6 months since November 2017.
This is for May, June and July 2018.
I missed 6 days of exercising this month, so this explains why I have completed less hours.
I still have exercised for 12 hours and 51 minutes in July, which is less than last month, and I burned 7,267 calories according to the app.
My weight loss results.
Let's see if I successfully lost weight in July even though I missed several days on my fitness commitment.
These are for six months from November 2017.
These are for May, June and July 2018.
Compared to last month, my minimum weight is down 0.5 kilograms and my average weight is also down 0.8 kilograms.
The maximum weight was 74.8 kilograms and that's nearly 1 kg more than the average.
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 very pleased to have finally gone down to 73.4 kilograms in July and the next target for August is 73 kilograms or less.
I had a juice every day this July, except when I traveled, and this helped me maintain my weight without too much effort.

That's my regular breakfast after my daily fitness session: small bananas, toast with tuna, grains, and juice, which is very low calorie.
My lunch is also juice most of the time and I have a normal meal in the evening.
I'd like to be below 73 kilograms for my next fitness report in August and I believe that I can do it.
I hope that this July fitness report is useful for you and I welcome your feedback in the comment section below.
