Monkey Bar Gym 60-Day Challenge
I had to cancel my planned backpacking trip due to an injury of my travel companion. To keep me motivated for next year, I joined a 60-day challenge at my gym. It's fun. And the best thing of all is that the gym owner promotes a whole-foods plant based diet. You get points for attending classes and improving fitness, but I think you can score the most points for each day that is plant-perfect. Is that cool or what? We also get points for logging our food. We can do it simply by just writing down what we eat but they also suggest we could use myfitnesspal. So I started doing that just for the challenge. You can see my food logs there--I'm barbarawhitney182. I don't know if I want to lose weight or not. I'm at Dr. Fuhrman's recommended weight but I still have a tummy. But maybe that's just life for a 55 year old who weighed 30 lbs more a year ago. I think I won't focus on the weight, just staying on my food plan and scoring points with the exercise classes.
