The Better Healthy Living Challenge is live! Just a bit behind in posting since I was traveling home from an amazing vacation. I’ll tell you more about that in another post.
The details for this months challenge are below. Glenneth and I sure hope you’ll join us. I’m so excited to have her join me as a co-host this year. You can read more about Glenneth AND get the buttons/banner for the challenge here.
There are going to be 4 different challenges this month. Each week we’ll focus on something different. You can find the topics below. And choose one or more things that will challenge you to live a healthier life.
The topics are:
Week 1: Fitness (run faster/longer, workout 3 times a week, walk 20 minutes a day)
Week 2: Nutrition (no fast food, drink more water, add more fruits/veggies, take your vitamins)
Week 3: Health (get more sleep, take time out for yourself, set up a long awaited doctor’s appointment, have family dinners)
Week 4: Pick any focus you might have struggled with from above and push yourself to accomplish more!
Who is this challenge for?
We have a mix of participants, from beginners to advanced so these topics work well for ANYone. We look forward to challenging ourselves too.

Setting up monthly challenges like this is wonderful!!! 🙂 So motivating. Taking life month by month or even just day by day is the best way to accomplish what you set forth for yourself 🙂
I concur! Thanks for your support. always.
Just starting, walking 20 min/day IS doable #BHLchallenge
Great to have you Melisa! A 20 min. walk a day is doable. Check in often and let us know how you are doing.

of course, with the 4th, I did not eat as healthy as I try to. I am a weight watcher and trying to lose..this past year and a half has been a total up and down thing with no progress really made except for exercise. i’ve been at this quite a while and know if i keep going and work on my eating I will get to goal …
focusing on the exercise goals this week!!!!
Awesome Lauren! You rock.
I have gone up and down myself. I started juicing last month and amazing what a difference it has made in my eating habits. I’m struggling with fitness which has never been an issue before. Just some set backs and hopefully will be back at it full on soon. You inspire me!
