The Whole Life Challenge begins tomorrow!
I’ve mentioned before that the Whole Life Challenge is not about weight loss. Instead, the challenge is to have you focus on choices you make on a daily basis — and how these choices can be improved/fine tuned/changed in order to live a healthier lifestyle.
A side effect, if you will, of eating healthy, nutritious foods and regularly exercising will inevitably lead to some physical changes. This is why you’re asked to do a baseline workout and take photos and measurements of your body before the challenge starts and then do them again at the end of the challenge to compare your results.
However, for me, the change went beyond just a difference in my appearance. You can read more about it in my blogpost here.
Before we officially get started, taking some time to write down a few goals that you want to accomplish by the end of the challenge.
Think about why you’re doing this challenge in the first place. What do you hope to achieve? Can you come up with any measurable goals? Most importantly, figure out WHY these goals are important for you. I’ve found using the SMART checklist for goal-setting to be very helpful.
Coming up with specific, measurable, attainable goals that you can accomplish within this 8-week period (that are relevant to your lifestyle, of course) and actually writing them down and putting them somewhere you can see them each day is a good way to help you stay motivated and stay on track.
