Welcome to the last day of the Radiant Challenge! If you’ve made it this far, no matter how many challenges you’ve completed, you deserve a party, a parade and a million dollars. I can’t give you any of those, but I can give you my congratulations and my admiration for your perseverance.
Living healthy takes hard work, as you’ve found, and you aren’t always 100% perfect. However, my definition of success isn’t someone who’s perfect, but someone who keeps going no matter what. As we end this challenge, that’s what I’d like to leave you with: The idea that there is no such thing as being perfect all the time, but that putting some kind of effort into your health (even if you can only muster the smallest bit) every day is what it’s all about. I hope this challenge brought that home to you and helped you learn a little more about yourself.
Today’s challenges are very simple. First, you’ll reflect on your experience and then you’ll celebrate any way you choose.
If you enjoyed this challenge or you have some suggestions or comments, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for participating and great job!
Your Active Challenge
Take at least 30 minutes today to reflect on what you’ve accomplished and how you felt.
Write in your journal about your experience with this challenge. Some questions to get you started:
- How difficult was it to follow the challenges each day?
- Which were the hardest challenges? Did the nutrition challenges trip you up or were the exercise challenges more difficult?
- What area did you excel at?
- How did it feel to go 35 days without focusing on weight loss? Did it change your perspective at all?
- What did you learn about yourself from this experience?
- What changes will you make more permanent in your life?
- Was there a point where you wanted to give up? Did you give up or did you find a way to keep going?
Your Fitness Challenge
Celebrate your success!
Whether you celebrate today or plan a future reward for yourself, make sure you take some time today to revel in your success.

Your S. H. I. N. E Challenge- This week is all about being Exceptional!
Day 35- Reflect on this week and record at least two celebrations and one focus for this coming week and keep that going. Thank you for being a critical part of the Radiant and Ignite Your S.H.I.N.E.™ challenge. Go be SHINEtastic™ at who you are. Be SHINEtastic™ at what you do. Go be… SHINEtastic™!
Your Life Transformation Challenge-
No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.
There are no other radiant challenges for you today, but one option is to take time to go back through everything you’ve collected in the last 35-days: Your journal, and any other notes you kept. As you look through all you’ve done, think about how far you’ve come. Really notice where you started out and where you are now and give yourself credit for any changes, no matter how small, you’ve made.
Now, you may be wondering where to go from here.
