440: 30 day challenge, etc

I have been on semi-vacation for a few weeks, along with my honey, which has been lovely. I have been sleeping in, reading a ton of romance novels, going to bikram, going thrifting.

Tomorrow begins my new year. That's when I go back to work.

I decided to join in the 30 Day Challenge at Bikram Yoga Cape Cod that starts tomorrow! As you may recall, I have already done one of these 30 Day Challenges and am looking forward to immersing myself in the practice diligently once again.

Remember when I started up with myfitnesspal? I am getting back to using it in earnest tomorrow, too. If you use it--- it works. The nine weeks that I was diligent with it, I lost nine pounds. And I just checked back in with it and the people who joined with me and stayed with it have lost a heck of a lot more than that! I'm not really going crazy with a Trying To Lose Weight thing, I just want to feel good and maybe be less lumpy. That's not too farfetched, I don't think.

30 days is a nice chunk of time to commit to a daily practice of some kind. Challenging for sure, but manageable.

Want to join me? Is there something that you would like to do for 30 days in a row? Possibilities: tracking on myfitnesspal, yoga, going to the gym, mediation, tai chi, writing, sketchbooking, etc! Whatever it is in your life that would be helpful. Give it some thought!

I will be checking in on the yummygoods facebook every day, if you would like to join me!
