Getting Started

There is no time like today to make changes for your health.

But a little planning always helps too.

Before the challenge...

  1. Tell others of your intentions!  Recruit your family, friends, coworkers, enemies, etc to join in with you.  
  2. Read over the Challenge Guidelines and reflect on the best way to implement them in your life. Modify if needed.
  3. Game plan 
    • meal plan - look for healthy ideas to come on the blog
    • get to the grocery store - stock up on vegetables, fruits, protein, whole grains to make your plan a success
    • plan out your workouts for the week
    • clean out that Nalgene in the back of your car and dust off your sneakers
  4. Get an idea of the "before"
    • Take pictures 
    • Take measurements - weight, waist circumference, body fat (if available to you)
  5. Set your sights on your "after" 
    • weight loss?
    • toning?
    • better energy?
    • healthier eating?
    • all of the above?
  6. Start a journal
    • keep track of your daily and weekly goals
    • write down food, exercise, emotions, anything to keep you focused
  7. Keep yourself "in the know."  Bookmark the blog (updates and advice daily) or subscribe by email.

What are you waiting for?!
