November's Healthy Challenge!
Goals. How often do we make goals, stick with our plan for a few days, and then watch those goals go out the window? For some of us, that occurs all too often, for others, not so much.
This month's healthy challenge is geared to help you achieve one health related goal. The cool thing about the challenge, is that you get to decide what that goal is!
We are going to help you obtain one healthy goal. This can be a mental, physical, or emotional goal.
Dates: November 8, 2010 - November 30, 2010
Each member is to choose a goal. It can be a big goal or a small goal. The goal must relate to health, and can relate to physical, emotional, or mental health. Members are to post their goals within the next 5 days. Please be specific when posting. Members must check in every other day and post their success or their problems.
Examples of goals:
Challenge yourself to do daily mental puzzles, such as crosswords, sudukos, etc.
Challenge yourself to cut out refined sugar.
Challenge yourself to read three pages of an enjoyable or self-help book each day.
Challenge yourself to exercise for 20 mins each day - or even 5 minutes!
Challenge yourself to go out of your way to help others.
Challenge yourself to clean out your drawers or closets.
Exceptions: Each member is allowed two exceptions to be used as you wish - any reason - two days this month.
What constitutes achieving your goal? We want you to succeed! Achieving your goals is meeting the criteria that you have put forth. For example, if you challenge yourself to clean out drawers - did you spend the allotted time that you've outlined or cleaned out the areas you had hoped to clean out? If you are challenging yourself to do 3 hours of exercise each week, did you meet that goal?
Can I change my goal? Nope, sorry ladies! We are allowing 5 days for you to figure out your goal. Think it through. Challenge yourself, or, if you need a pick-me-up, go with something that you know you can achieve. The choice is yours, but once you select your goal, it cannot be changed.
Member Responsibility: We trust our members. This will work on an honor system, however you will be required to check in to our Healthy Challenges Forum every other day and simply share how you are doing. Tell us if you stumbled, and if you were able to turn it around, how you achieved it.
Support: Want to play but afraid you might not be able to keep up? Does it sound silly? If you are worried about not being able to reach your goal, that's what we're here for! We'll support you the entire way - every step! If you think the challenge sounds silly, then please give it a try! We would love to have your positive inspiration helping others!
We know you can do this!
Once you succeed, bigger goals will seem much easier to accomplish.
