Good Morning Challengers,
Here we are on Week Two and Day Eight of the challenge. If you have been following the challenges daily you should feel and SEE a big difference in your energy level and the way your clothes fit.
Keep the pictures coming…It’s a great way to create accountability for yourself and who knows, you may even WIN some cool prizes.
Active Challenge– Accumulate at least 15 minutes of walking up stairs or hill-climbing. This is the same challenge from Day 2, so you can do the same thing or try something new. Remember, you can do this all at once or throughout the day. If you don’t have stairs or a hill nearby, try brisk walking for at least 15 minutes…or choose any other activity that will keep you moving.
Exercise Challenge- Focus on burning more than 300 calories or walking 3,000 steps today. After, you’ll a strength training routine you’ve done before. In your journal, what level did you follow on Day One? Today, Id love for you to go to the next level and do an extra set. 🙂
Nutrition Challenge-Eat at least one serving of fruit first thing in morning on an empty stomach 30-minutes before breakfast. Eat 2 different vegetables with every meal each day.
This can include fresh fruit (like a small apple, a banana or a cup of berries). A serving is usually about a cup for most fruits. Try and eat your fruit first before you eat anything else. Many fruits contain lots of water and fiber which helps you fill up, saving less room for naughtier food. Adding more health building foods like fresh vegetables to our diet is extremely important. They are also low in calorie and will fill you up so you eat less each day. For lunch and dinner, use a dinner plate and fill ¼ of the plate with a green vegetable, ¼ with a colorful vegetable like carrots or squash, ¼ with salad, and ¼ with a healthy starch like brown rice or a piece of fish.
You can also visit our Nutrition Site for other ideas on getting more fruits and veggies into your diet.

Mind/Body Challenge-Two-minute meditation. Find a quiet place to sit and close your eyes. Breathe deeply and focus on your breath by counting to three for each inhale and three for each exhale. Continue this for at least two minutes or more. If your mind wanders, notice what you’re thinking about and then gently focus on your breath.
Life Transformation- Stop berating yourself for old mistakes. We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us. We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future. Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
