Challenge!

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘challenge‘? The first thing I think of is this:

 

The second thing I will think of from now on is the Diabetes Daily Challenge. Never one to shy away from competition, I was excited to hear about the lastest activity on the Diabetes Daily forum. David has invited us all to make take up a Diabetes Daily Challenge.

In August, the basic challenge is to “put on your workout clothes at least four days a week and move for 10 minutes or more. Don’t skip more than one day in a row.” People are definitely putting their own spin on the challenge and some have taken up food challenges instead.

Instead of the 10 minutes, I am challenging myself to work out for 30 minutes at least 4 days a week. I am hoping to also lose 4 lbs by the end of the month, but that’s not officially part of the deal!

Saturday I did 30 minutes on the Wii Fit. On Sunday, I decided to take advantage of the beautiful (but HOT!) weather and take a walk down to the ocean. It is about a mile and a quarter each way. After a detour through some beautiful local gardens, I was gone for about 45 minutes. If only all exercise could be this beautiful!

 

DD Challenge - August 2nd

I started a Flickr set for the DD Challenge that includes additional pictures from this weekend and hopefully pictures of more fun summer exercise opportunities.

Are you taking on a challenge this month? Keep us posted (and yourself accountable) here. If you are on Twitter, the official hashtag to keep us all posted and up to date on your progress is #ddchallenge.

Challenge!

    Thanks for the beach photos! I was really looking forward to them after you tweeted our aspirations. It makes me pang for the fall when we can visit Naples, FL again and walk on the beach. 🙂
