Wellness Challenge: Be the best YOU!

I am joining in this great Wellness Challenge that starts May 17th, it is just going to be an extra boost and motivation I need to get fit and healthy this summer. It is open to anyone and only costs $10 to enter in it.
It has some awesome goals and plans to help you be a better you. Here is what you get points for:
1. Drink 48 ounces of water a day

2. 45 minutes of exercise (doesn't have to be consecutive)

3. No soda or alcohol

4. No sweets (desserts, pastries, candy, or sugary snacks) Sugar-free alternatives are okay.

5. No fast food, or unhealthy snacks (chips)

6. Consume 2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables

7. No eating after 8p.m.

8. Read 15 minutes of spiritual or uplifting text

9. Write in your journal (Daily blogs count, too.) Express specific appreciation, love, or praise in your journal...a goal of two or three items is a good goal!

10. Personal goal- each week make a personal goal for everyday or make a goal for the entire week. ( Like reading more to the kids, organize a closet, get 8 hours of sleep, etc...)

ONE FREE POINT PER AREA, PER WEEK..for example: only one day with sweets a week, only one day without exercise, one late night snack per week........or one whole day free.

Here is the blog with all the information, rules, points, rewards etc. It's put on by Kim Matthews and it has her contact information. Come join in the fun!! It is going to be awesome!

Awesome Nicole!! I have been doing one with 6 of my girlfriends for the 3 months leading up to Women's Conference. We called it the Classy Lady Challenge and we modified it to fit us. It was amazing to see what areas I was falling short in and not even realizing it. Our areas were 7 ours of sleep, 48 oz. water, 45 min. of exercise, 2 veggies & 2 fruits, no soda/bad snacks, no sweets, no eating after 8pm, 15 min. scriptures, write in journal, and a random act of kindness. We left Sunday as a free-day and we could get bonus points for attending the temple, doing our vt and working towards 1 self improvement goal. I loved it and will continue with it! It is amazing!!! Who ever thought eating your fruits and veggies was so hard?!! LOL.
