Welcome to our newest challenge; the New You 12-Week Challenge.
The Challenge is for people who are committed to making positive, healthy lifestyle changes. The reason it’s a 12-week challenge versus a 30 day challenge is that it takes some time for lifestyle changes to become ingrained and results noticeable. You need to have patience in the process so you can have long-term success.
Here are the ‘rules’ of the Challenge:
- Track everything you eat or drink; either on an app such as My Fitness Pal, a plain spiral bound notebook, a spreadsheet, Livestrong.com, Spark People, whatever.
- Workout 5 times each week for at least 30 minutes per session and keep track of what you do
- Track your results.
- Email me and let me know if you’re in!
Sound like a lot? Don’t freak out, I’ve got you covered!
The problem with a long-term challenge can be motivation and stick-to-it-iv-ness. So to guarantee that you are staying on track and keeping your eye on the ball for the entire challenge, I will post a weekly Focus Point every Monday. These Focus Points will discuss an area that we are going to work on, they will provide proven tips, tricks and tools that will help you be successful.
As a teaser, our Week 1 Focus Point will be how to set yourself up to begin this challenge and ensure you know where you’re starting and where you’re going.
So are you ready? Committed? Prepared to reach your goals? (Hint: those are rhetorical questions).
We start tomorrow!
Now go run!
