Health Challenge

This post is going to be a little bit different. What I have for you today is a Health Challenge. Are you with me? Let me explain the details. All I’m asking for is TWO WEEKS. After 14 days, lets see if you feel any healthier and/or lighter.

I’m participating in this health challenge that is put on my by a good friend here in Logan. And it goes for 12 weeks. 12! So, please just do 2 weeks with me.

Here is the challenge: You get a point for each of these things a day. At the end of the two weeks tally up your points and we’ll have a points winner. I’m thinking a Subway gift card? Mmmm. (nothing too much, but enough to motivate 🙂

Challenge #1: WRITE IT DOWN. Write down all the food that you eat each day. Use a tracking sheet. is a great website. There are a million websites out there to track calories. Good old paper and pencil works great too.

Challenge #2: Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Yes! You can do this. Water makes us fill up and it helps us feel full and is so beneficial for so many reasons. Drink up (water that is!)

Challenge #3: Exercise at least 45 minutes to an hour Every day! (30 minutes will get you a half point) Monday through Friday. Try to squeeze this in every day. Exercise is essential to our health. It clears our mind and body (literally!) Even if you go for a walk outside, try to get this in every day.

Challenge #4: Eat 6 servings of either Fruit/Veggies a day. You can totally do this.

Are you up to the challenge? For each day that you complete each challenge (you can make a little chart to check off the boxes) You get a point. So, say I exercised 3 days next week, and drank 8 glasses of water 2 days, and ate all my veggies 5 days, then I get 10 points for the week. I’m super excited to do this with all of you.

If you’d like to take the 2 week challenge with me, please leave a comment below.
We start today! You can do it!!
