Here in the Northern Hemisphere it's fun in the sun season (finally!) Time for riding bikes, lawn mowing, and long walks along the beach. Shorts, tank tops, and the dreaded bathing suits are coming out of storage. Can you run the summer food gauntlet and still rock that sun dress? Exercise can help. It can encourage your metabolism, tone muscles you didn't know you had, and keep your spirits up. So come on and join us for the June Challenge. It doesn't matter if you are a new exerciser striving for some focused movement or a Challenge veteran keeping those numbers up when you'd rather sit in the sun. This is a great place to set goals and be accountable. So what is your June goal?

I'm completely off the exercise wagon so I am starting small but trying to get "regular".


GOAL: Something, ANYTHING, every day, even if it is a 10-minute walk
CURRENT: 5 days/10

June 1 - No.
2- YES, just a walk around the neighborhood, ~ 20 min.
3 - 6 - can't remember, so I am inclined to say it is NO
7 - YES - walking (but not much)
8 - YES - walking
9 - YES - Couch to 5K Week 1, Day 1 AND ~1 hour walking. (OK this is my first "real" day of exercising and it feels GREAT. I have no idea why it takes me so long to get motivated. Serious issues.)
10 - YES - ~ 30 min walking and 1 hour yoga
11 - on... I did do some things... went running again for sure... but forgot to record anything...

Eh, it looks like I am pretty much out for this month. I got really frustrated with my weight being ~the same for 6 months (after bumping up TEN POUNDS over the holidays) so I focused on re-thinking of my diet. Exercise has fallen off the radar for now. Lame.

I'm doing the Couch to 5K running plan. I'm doing week one over, so, my goal is to be at the end of week 4 by the end of June! I'll post my run days.
2: C25K W1D1
4: C25K W1D2
7: C25K W1D3 - Week One Complete!
9: C25K W2D1 - I made it! I wanted to wimp out on the last running interval, but stuck it out. Go me!

Jump to July 2nd: I stopped updating, but didn't stop running. This is hard stuff. I didn't make it to the end of week four, but I have one more run in week three, then I think I'll move to week four - not sure yet. I find I'm doing each week twice because I'm just not ready to move to the next level in one week.

Wow, a few of you (you know who you are!) are doing SO GREAT this month.

Me, not so much. Shook up my diet and it ended up being pretty low-cal so I haven't sorted it all out and/or figured out how to get back into exercise. But I needed some serious shaking up so it's all good.

:congrat: to you who made your goals!!!
