I sometimes forget, gingers can be scary to some people

I sometimes forget, gingers can be scary to some people

Do you like to challenge yourself? Willing to try new things and strive to get better? I am like that, sometimes to a fault.

My wife and I had a challenge to see who could handout the most programs at church one Sunday morning when we were ushering. Nothing like the look of shock on a small child's face when a 6'2" inch ginger is overaggressively foisting a program in his face.

Probably not the best challenge, but that's just the way we are both wired. Always looking for a challenge.

In case you are wondering, I won.

The latest challenge I am taking on is called the Whole Life Challenge. It is an 8 week challenge where you score yourself daily in 5 different areas.

You get points for nutrition, exercise, mobilization, supplements, and lifestyle.

They give you support, tips, tricks, and strategies to help you along the way. The overall concept is pretty straightforward.

-Eat healthy foods, stay away from processed and sugary foods

 -Exercise at least 10 minutes per day

 -Stretch or foam roll for 10 minutes a day

-Take your chosen supplement every day (multivitamin, fish oil, etc...)

-Take steps to improve your overall lifestyle every day (drink more water, improving sleep, etc...)

Sounds like stuff that you have heard about from just about any health and fitness person right?  So why did I shell out my own money for something I write about doing every day?

Three main reason. Being intentional, accountability, and I wanted to see if it was something my clients would like to try for the next challenge.

It is so easy to just go through your day going through the motions. But when you are tracking what you eat, your workouts, stretching, supplementation, and all of the other things that can help you improve you will stick to it.

This all create a blueprint for your path to success, but will also give you an idea what you need to work on if you don't reach your goals.

If you would like to join my team (it's just me so far) you can go HERE

Today is actually the last day to sign up for the Whole Life Challenge if it interests you at all.

But the main thing I want you to do is be mindful of what you are doing every day. Do you keep track of what you are eating and what you are doing in your workouts?

If not, I would suggest you start today. It really does matter.
