SUCK IT CHALLENGE, copied from:
1. Pick any 5 things to measure that you will measure again on New Year's Day. Post those current measurements here. it can be everything from how many modified pushups you can currently do, to a 5K time... Personalize it.
A. Weight: check tonight
B. Waist Measurement: check tonight
C. Strength training: 2 days a week minimum
D. Eat Healthy Dinners 6x week
E. Sleep 7 hours a night 3x week minimum
2. Declare yourself. Do so by choosing one or more of the following.
A. Make your declaration of independence from imminent failure, guilt and pressure. Write a paragraph, a statement or a blog about how you will do your best, and not hate yourself if you fail.
B. Post a current body shot if you have not already posted one, or at least an updated one you can use as a before picture. This isn't a long challenge, only 4.5 weeks- so you may not make alot of progress in a body shot- but the goal here is to not backtrack in December, right?
C. Post an awesome profile picture of yourself, if you don't have one.
D. Put up your ticker. This is IMMENSELY helpful. it shows where you are now, which can be tough to admit, but its courage that makes all the difference. You know that's the truth.
E. Redo your sparkpage with flair and determination. Freshen it up. We're done with the tired same old same old.
3. Make the decision that no matter how many times you fall in December, you wont wait 24-48 hours to make up for it. Make sure your next act, after falling, is standing up straight. Immediately. State one victory you have already had today.
After my Dr apt this morning, I walked in their looonnnng straight hallways for 48 minutes! Then headed to work.
4. Tell me what you are absolutely going to do right today.
I am going to eat a healthy dinner (and not the crap that I have been eating).
I am going do my strength training.
I am going for 14K steps (or more), already at 8K.
I will do the very best I can for the next 32 days to have my five goals improve and/or become my healthy habits. If I fall/fail, I will not let that fall/failure derail my success and I will stand up the very next minute/hour/day and work even harder. I will not beat myself up for any failures, as failures will only make me stronger if I analyze my fall.
I will also work at seeing the positive in any failing type of situation.
