Have you taken part in any challenges recently?  Any challenges you want to take part in?

Frequently I see people posting fitness challenges, make-over-your-life type challenges with everything from keeping a cleaner house to working out more consistently to dietary challenges such as no sugar or more protein to challenges having to do with becoming a more zen human being.

There’s definitely no shortages of challenges out there.

One of the challenges I gave myself was doing more self-assigned photography projects like this oneMaybe this one counts.

Thanks for the Coffee Giveaway entries, too!
