Are you up for the challenge??
I am looking for a few other people to do this challenge with me. It is to improve our diet, to eat less food, to increase exercise, etc. Maybe this will include daily exercise, increased water intake, more fruits & veggies, a specific diet you are following, actual weight loss goals, whatever...
What I'm hoping for here is a get some other ladies involved. Each woman will come up with her own 6 changes. Now, you can work on one "change" at a time, or all 6 at once - if you are uber-disciplined!!
We will help each other through email support, here in the comments, at each other's blogs and perhaps through snail mail (a nice, encouraging card or gift works wonders!!). The main idea is to get involved with others. To be held accountable. To know that there are these other gals, working hard each day to change, just like you!
And it's just a 6 week challenge. I figured that was long enough to really CHALLENGE us, yet short enough to not overwhelm us. That would bring us to just past Thanksgiving.
So who's up for the challenge?
If you think this sounds like just what you need, leave a comment here. Then come up with 6 basic goals and get ready! We are already reading each other's blogs, we are already reading about each other's struggles and joys - why not help each other out and get a little bit of encouragement ourselves??
~Looking forward to the challenge~
Here are my 6 goals (just to give you some ideas)
#1. up every morning no later than 7am (this will include my daily Bible).
#2. exercise daily (this will include pilates, stretches, stregthening - that's what interests me)
#3. start carrying a water bottle around (filled with *filtered* water - we need a filter).
#4. increase WHOLE FOODS (and overall, just LESS food).
#5. keep the weight going DOWN (no specific numbers, just keep going down).
#6. get to bed each night between 10-11pm.
Your goals will be different - perhaps gluten-free or a specific diet program. You may already exercise each day, so maybe you need something new to jump-start your health improvement again. Maybe it's no t.v. during the daytime, or to simply get outside for fresh air each day. Whatever you need. Pray about it ~ ask God what He wants you to do. Ask you dh ~ perhaps he's been thinking about a change for the family in regards to health. Just pick 6 and get ready to be encouraged and challenged!!
