I've been feeling like I need something to help me get my life a little bit more balanced. I remembered a friend talking about a wellness challenge she did a few years ago. I asked her if she still had all the guidelines for it. She did and when she sent it to me and I read it the wellness challenge seemed like exactly what I was needing. Here is what Brent and I (of course he's doing this with me, he's my awesome husband) will be doing everyday for the next 12 weeks.
1 48 oz. of water
2 45 minutes of exercise (not necessarily consecutive)
3 2 servings of veggies, 2 servings of fruit
4 No soda, beer, wine, unhealthy snacks (ex: potato chips), or bad fast food (anything fried)
5 No sweets. (Desserts, pastries, sugary snacks & cereals) * Sugar-Free alternatives are OK.
6 No eating after dinner/8pm
7 15 min. of scripture reading (or spiritual text if you don't do scripture)
8 One journal entry (any length)
9 Express sincere appreciation, love or praise to your spouse (if single, to another person)
10 Personal Goal
So I'll be blogging a lot more since I'll be counting that as journaling. I'm really excited about doing this! So of the things will be difficult but I think most of it goes pretty well with the lifestyle I already try to live. It will just help me live more consciously and hopefully develop/reestablish some good habits. Hopefully I'll also be able to get caught up on the past few months that I've been MIA here on the blog!
