    The challenge was fun and the team seemed to enjoy doing it. We were reminded with the challenge to enjoy nature and impact our self improvement with eco sustainability.

    Wow, it's the last day of the challenge. I took a lunchtime walk and apparently 1p isn't late enough for the heat to abate. I really have to plan for the upcoming weather so I can still get movement. I went old school and bought a jump rope and I can use it at breaks in the garage as it is cool there. I can exercise and still be outdoors just not get heatstroke!

    I am in the office today and I do find I don't need to think about moving more as I am helping several departments when I come in so they do not have to come in. I move more and without thought while at home I need to tell myself to get up and move (but have been getting better during this challenge to go outside and move at breaks).

    It is starting to get warm outside. Even I went for my walk outside at 11a, I may want to relook at my schedule to see if I can go out earlier. It was beautiful outside though ad I began a new podcast that in he first few minutes had me laughing so much the people outside around me must have thought I was crazy.....at least they might think I was talking on the phone because in order to hear it well I hold the phone near my ear.

    My walk at break today was so nice. The sun was out, I finished another podcast, and I felt like me again after the vaccine made me so tired yesterday. Three more days to go of the challenge!

    Today I took it easy as I am a bit tired after the vaccine and with a sore arm. I did my 30 minutes of exercise outside walking in the stores. I am now eating lunch and fixing to go read to relax for the afternoon. It warmed up nicely outside before I came in....not too hot and not to cold....just right.

    Today I have gotten my challenges done early as its our household vaccine day and since this is round one for us I don't know if we will have any reaction. We will be in an outdoor venue so that helps get that task done today.

    Its the halfway point. Today is about efficiency. I went shopping at an outdoors mall so I got the gift, 30 minutes of exercise, and got my outdoor sun all in one trip!

    I can't believe a week almost has gone by of a two week challenge. Today I took time for myself this afternoon and enjoyed sitting out in the sun. I hear rain is coming on Sunday and while I am not sure it will be much, we can use all of the water we can get.

    Busy at the office today instead of from home. It is my once a week to collect all the payments and then help other units so they don't have to come in. I find when I am in the office I get more movement than when I am at home. I need to remind myself more when I am home to move!
