Are you up for a challenge? Join me for the June Boom!
The June Boom has three rules:
- Exercise every day in June. I'll do at least 30 minutes of something every day.
- Start something you've been putting off. For me it's biking, but it can be anything.
- Be publicly accountable. I'll use my blog of course, but you can post on Facebook, tell a friend, or do anything else to keep yourself on track.
Two months ago I announced four spring training activities - softball, umpiring, interval training, and biking. The first two have been a success, and I at least did some interval training. But between the awful spring weather in Seattle and two boys in baseball, I never got my bike out.
My pledge is to exercise every day in June and post each day's activities on the sidebar. Lots of days it will be walking, but I'll also do intervals, stairs, and play sports with the kids. The biggie for me is getting back on the bike. I went out Saturday for the first time in six months and it felt like my legs were pushing through clam chowder. I'm banking on lots of June rides to be back in shape for a good summer of cycling.
How about you? What are you going to use the longest month of daylight to accomplish? Leave a comment with your plans and feel free to copy the June Boom badge for your blog.
P.S. Thanks for all of the great comments on my last post, What Do You Tell Your Kids? I think the consensus is that my message of "always stay in shape" is the right one, but what really matters is setting a good example through healthy eating and an active lifestyle.
