I finished May with great food choices, but allowed myself to be a bit lax over the holiday weekend (which also had birthdays for my wife and son). Back on track now.
As for June, I will be doing Alan's June Boom Challenge! Many of you have already read about it, but go to his blog to get the details. Thanks, Alan, for the great idea. People are excited. (cool graphic too).
I actually didn't get in any activity yesterday, so I am already breaking one of the rules of the challenge which is to exercise 30 minutes a day for the month of June. But isn't this where many of us start to give up? We set an aggressive goal, stumble at one point (with a Starbucks donut or a missed workout) and begin to allow ourselves to give up on the rest of the goal since we have "already failed". Please don't let that happen to you (and I won't either). This journey is a marathon, not a sprint. The June Boom is a CHALLENGE because it is likely more difficult than our normal routines. That means it is okay to reach high and fall a bit short, as opposed to not reaching high at all.
So, I will make up that 30 minutes tonight. I won't win the award for literally 30 days of exercise, but I am honoring the spirit of it and bottom line, getting exercise minutes in.
Now, on to blogger...I have been very frustrated lately as I know many of you have been. Even this morning, I have been reading many blogs and trying to leave comments. On some blogs, I can post a comment using my blogger address or even "anonymous", but with about 5-6 of your blogs, I can't even post a comment! I am so sorry because I am following along and want to encourage.
Caratunk Girl got fed up and switched to Wordpress, which didn't affect how I follow her blog. But she always had her own address that didn't have "blogspot" in it. Does anyone else have any experience doing this? I now have google g-mail accounts (for me and my family) and I don't want to disrupt the whole thing and lose it all if I switch, but I also want to be able to leave comments.
