    Hello team,
    I’m V, a 5th grade teacher from Port Angeles, WA. Yes, I’m count down the last few days…9.5! 😎
    Currently my exercise is hindered by an injury. So this month my goal is on logging food and drinking at least 64 oz of water.

    @jessicakrall8 and @frankwbrown - thanks for the info on the Garmin challenges. I recently bought a Garmin.

    @jessicakral8 I recall your post last month about purchasing your Garmin. I had my Fitbit for YEARS. I've been working on paying off debt so I did not want to purchase a new smartwatch. Last month, I also went on a bike ride with a friend of mine. Her watch was able to track our ride much better than my old FitBit. So your post plus that bike riding experience sold me on getting a new watch. I went with a Garmin. I have had the watch for a couple weeks now. I will have to explore the challenges.

    Sunday weigh ins

    PW: 170.2 lbs
    CW: 171.5 lbs

    My weight is creeping up again due to lack of tracking, a few very nice short trips with my husband in the last couple of weeks (with loads of good good food and wine) and not working out enough due to an illness/injury „streak“ 🙈. I still try to get healthy things on my plate, but I definitely should track more to see how much I really put in my body. Trying to be nice to myself, though. I‘ll get to my goal weight eventually. It’s just ups and downs along the path…

    Speaking of Garmin challenges/badges, there was a challenge yesterday for World Bicycle Day. Although the description was "Record an activity on World Bicycle Day, June 3, 2023", I wondered if they meant a cycling activity. But I saw that I got the badge after an early morning run/walk. Still, I wanted to do something to celebrate bicycles, so I dragged my beach cruiser bicycle out, pumped up the tires, and took a ride. Only a short ride: 18 minutes, but it was a start, and it was the first time I've ridden outdoors since April 2nd, 2021 (I had to look it up)!

    Two more special challenges are:
    June 7th - Global Running Day: this has to be a running activity.
    June 10th - Global Wellness Day: this can be any activity.

    You (and any other Garmin users) might also be interested in this website: - He always knows about the upcoming badges ahead of time. - a database of all Garmin badges
    And if you choose, you can join and see your progress on all your challenges (of course, you can already do that on Garmin Connect).

    @frankwbrown I'll look and see if I got the one for World Bicycle Day as well! I'll check out the websites you mentioned.

    @cyncia85 Feel free to add me as a friend for challenges...I'm listed as Jessica K in Chesapeake, VA and you'll see my kitty, Betty as my picture...

    Good Morning,
    I'm back from our little camping trip. Sorry I'm behind in posting steps, no internet out camping.

    No problem, it can be hard to keep track of what everyone is up to! I hope you had a great time. :smile:
