I'm in. I'm currently on a cleanse that gives me so much energy that I can't get my 8 hours at night, but I'm off for the week so I am pushing myself to make up the time lost during the day.

I totally relate to you on this (I'm up too late right now). On a good night (very rare), I take a Melatonin around 8:30pm, read a book for awhile, then try to fall asleep around 9pm & get up at 5:30am. I need to figure out a way to get my workouts in and have that time too. It's hard when you work full time and have so many responsibilities at home! Challenge accepted! I will do my very best!

Welcome aboard! And Good luck!

I added the sleep challenge for this month because I too have trouble falling asleep. Most of the time it is because I am up thinking about work and things that can be taken care of later but as usual I need to get everything in order before I go to sleep. Which is impossible lol! I look at the clock thinking I will be ok with 7 hours, I will be ok with 6 hours, I can function with 5 hours, hmm......4 hours is pushing it but I will be fine then 3 hours later when I wake up fatigued, with a migraine and completely aggrevated my day is spent dragging through the next 8 or 9 hours hoping I can get out of work, get home and take care of laundry and dinner and clock 8 hours. But, I want to watch a movie first. Sleep is too easily sacrificed! We have to change our minds about what sleep truly means and what it does for the body.

I'm glad you have joined the challenge! Let's have a great month!!!! emoticon

The sleep thing will truly be a challenge for April! It's not that I intentionally stay up late to do anything. I have trouble either falling asleep or staying asleep most nights of the week. Maybe this will be a good excuse to try some new stuff to help me get me get my 8 hours!

I forgot to update my progress at the end of April. I lost a total of 6.6lbs in April! YAY! Is there a May challenge up yet?

Hello Team! I hope you are all doing well with the challenge! If you are new feel free to jump right in!


I struggled with February and March. There were so many birthdays! And you know what that means. WEIGHT GAIN! So I am starting over! Usually I would be depressed at my gains. I'm shocked I'm not! I can only use everyday to start again. You guys know I am OPEN and HONEST at all times. So I would like to share the fact that I SLACKED! I barely clocked 500 fitness minutes last month although I planned over 1,000. I ate ice cream like I had never tried it before and my alcohol consumption was INSANE! Between late February and all of March I went to a whopping 12 birthday parties!!!! I can't eat cake because I am allergic to gluten but I ate so much ice cream, chips and TONS of other gluten free snacks and food. There is no reason for me to beat myself up. I did it! I accept it and now I move on.

So if you haven't been doing your best and you find that you are not on task then guess what.........This is the month to start fresh!!!!

Welcome to the April portion of the Change YOUR Mind Change YOUR Life Challenge!


BIG Challenge- Lose 5 lbs

MINI Challenge-

Eat a veggie at least once a day as a meal or with a meal (this could mean having a hearty salad or adding corn, peas, green beans, or cabbage to dinner or celery to your lunch.)

Eat a fruit at least once a day as a meal or with a meal (this could mean adding a banana to your cereal or oatmeal, grabbing an apple or an orange as a snack or adding grapes or berries to your yogurt.)

Add a weight belt, vest, hand weights, leg weights or any form of resistance to your workouts at least twice a week.

Water.......Water.........WATER is our BESTFRIEND! It helps motabilize body fat! Lets make sure we are getting the water our body needs IN!!! I am not requiring an 8 glass a day commitment. Too much water can actually be BAD for you. Just make sure you are staying hydrated for your workouts and as an added bonus grab a glass of water BEFORE your meals.

This months workout song: "Off the Wall" by Michael Jackson

This months phrase: "I BELIEVE "

This month change your mind about: SLEEP! Rest is IMPORANT. When the body doesn't get enough sleep you have a harder time concentrating and you don't have enough energy to get through your day. So this month DO NOT sacrifice your sleep for staying up late to watch tv, or do laundry or the million other things we do. How many times have you sacrificed an hour or 2 of sleep just to get some work finished? Well, DON'T DO IT THIS MONTH! GO TO BED!

Are you ready!? WHO IS WITH ME!?
