Another month of the challenge is done! I am feeling optimisitc! How are you feeling!? I am glad you have chosen to join me on this challenge and if you are new to the challenge then WELCOME! Jump right in! This is a year long commitment. If you didn't join us in February here is a quick recap.
This is the Change YOUR Mind Change YOUR Life Challenge of 2012. It lasts all year long. Our goal is to lose 5 lbs a month. We are no longer going to pressure ourselves with demanding the scale shows us unrealistic numbers like 10 and 15 pounds a month! Time to be HONEST with ourselves. No one gains a hundred pounds over night so losing it over night will NEVER happen.
This challenge is designed to target 5 lbs a month until December 31st with the hopes of losing 60 lbs by the end of the year. There will be a BIG challenge which will always be to lose 5 lbs. If you do not need to lose 60+ lbs then you are to break the increments up into realistic chunks that will give you success by December. There will also be a MINI challenge. Each month the MINI challenge will increse by 1. There was 1 MINI Challenge in January because January is the 1st month. There will be 2 in February since it is the 2nd month and so on and so forth. There is also a workout song of the month that is the mantra for the month and a way to set the tone for your workouts. We also have a phrase we use every morning and night to encourage ourselves. You are also challenged to change your mind about something. All too often it is negative thought that keeps us from succeeding. We are changing our minds to change our lives. With that said it is time for February (if you are still confused and need more explaination please read the first thread or feel free to send me a message).
