I love when a new month starts on a Monday.
It makes implementing changes just a little bit easier.
So yesterday I proposed a challenge for July to all my Tribe members:
Since tomorrow is a new month AND a Monday, I wanna see who wants to do a July challenge.
31 days of SOMETHING.
I don’t want to offer a blanket challenge because I think we all have different things we are working on.
But I want to really encourage you to think of something you want to do for the next 31 days.
EVEN ON THE 4TH OF JULY.
EVEN ON VACATION!!!!
Maybe it’s organizational.
Maybe it’s one minute of some sort of strength training like planks or push-ups.
Maybe it’s daily journaling or reading.
Maybe it’s drinking water or stretching or maybe it’s something else!
I really want to encourage you to challenge yourself to something. Something manageable.
If you have any thoughts, share them with the group!
Let’s kick some ass in July!!!
I thought I’d share the same challenge with you.
Who wants to join me/us?
If you read Friday’s post, you know I am struggling with the effects of menopause.
In particular, I am struggling with the weight that is going directly to my middle, even though I continue to exercise daily and haven’t made any (unhealthy) changes to my diet.
I just can’t eat the way I used to. I’ve officially reached that stage of life.
It sucks, but that’s life. And I don’t want to balloon up to a higher weight than I am already at.
It’s pretty simple. I don’t need to eat as much as I am eating.
But simple doesn’t mean easy.
I find myself challenged when it comes to eating less.
So my challenge to myself in July is to eat between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
In particular, no eating after 8 p.m.
This will help me stop the eating-something-every-night-in-bed habit I started about a year ago.
By the way, in Friday’s post I said I wanted to report back a week later that I hadn’t eaten any snacks in bed for 7 consecutive days and tonight will be three nights in a row. 🙂
Anyway, that’s my July challenge.
I’d love for you to join us!
You could challenge yourself to drink more water or read more or save money or do a minute of exercise or run a mile a day or go to bed by a certain time or… ANYTHING!
If you want a habit tracker to help see your progress and keep you on track, here you go!
