Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 4

Move

Guidelines:
It's that simple. Move. Get off the couch. Walk smartly for a mile or more. Take the bike for a spin around town. Pick up a tennis racket. Go to the dollar store and buy a hula hoop. Climb a tree. Climb a mountain. You decide, but it should be fun and freeing. I don't think you have to get a stress fracture to get fitter. Just move it.

Weeks 1 to 4

Eat Food - Not Too Much - Mostly Plants

Guidelines:
Guidelines: Yes, I borrowed this objective from Michael Pollan. I don't believe in eating only grapefruit or only cabbage or only protein. You won't feel good and any weight you lose will pounce right back as soon as you relax your eating regime. Eat three meals a day. Get a vegetable in at each meal. Have fruit for dessert.

Weeks 1 to 4

Weigh Yourself

Guidelines:
Get on the scale but only once a week. You'll know how your weight loss journey is progressing by how your clothes fit. I currently weigh myself every morning and I think it's making me a little crazy. Don't be a slave to the numbers on that scale.

Weeks 1 to 4

Decide On A Goal

Guidelines:
Set a goal for yourself. It can be a fitness goal or a specific number of pounds or a smaller pant size. It should be something that can be measured.
