Little Lifestyle Changes Add Up to Big Wins with SparkPeople's Small Successes 30-Day Challenge

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Welcome to the Small Successes 30-Day Challenge Sponsored by PAM! For the next 30 days, you'll get a daily dose of smart strategies and cooking tips. In this challenge, you'll have fun while learning to cook nutritious food for you and your family and learn small ways to integrate healthy living. We're so glad you joined--you're going to love it!

Adopting a healthy lifestyle can seem overwhelming when you don't know where to start. You know you should eat healthier—but how? You want to exercise—but where can you find the time? You'd like to set a good example for your family—but what's the best way to start?
That's where the Small Successes 30-Day Challenge can help. We believe that putting aside a small amount of time every day to learn one new healthy habit can add up to big benefits.
We’ve partnered with PAM Cooking Spray to bring you the Small Successes 30-Day Challenge. By joining the challenge, you'll learn easy, fun, family-friendly strategies that support good nutrition, lower-fat cooking and healthy living habits at home.
