June Challenge.

Now that the McFarty Challenge is completed. I'm motivated for a different challenge.

I'm going for a Dirty Dozen Challenge.

4 Weeks this month.
3 days per week.
45 minutes of exercise on each of those three days.

Since there's actually 4 and a bit weeks this month I suppose it's technically the Baker's Dirty Dozen Challenge. 13 workouts of 45 minutes each. Here's hoping to get more regular exercise in!

Oh, and we're planning on keeping up the McFarty Challenge this month too. Both Alaskaboy and I enjoyed the increased amount of legumes in our diet.

McFarty Challenge Recap.

For the whole challenge, I ate more fish than I'd planned. I was disappointed that on one of the days of fear eating this week that I didn't eat any legumes at all. But, considering there was more than one day over the challenge that I ate legumes at least twice in a single day, I'm actually counting this as a successful challenge. (I also wasn't going to shove in some legumes JUST to say I'd eaten them. Did enough overeating with other things, thanks very much!)

For several days we'd misplaced the camera, and then there was some fear eating days where I didn't take photos.
