Today is June 1st and the start of the 2nd annual Better Healthy Living Challenge. Check out that blog post to see all the awesome prizes and challenge rules.
Have you thought about some of the positive changes you are going to make each week this month? I have a list of ideas.
For the 1st week my goal is to limit dessert. As most of you know, I challenged myself in May to No Naughty Desserts and I am proud to say that MOST of the month I succeeded.
Towards the middle of the month, I had some cookies for lunch and towards the end of the month I had ice cream and chocolate a few times. I need to keep up with this challenge so I’m going to try to limit my ‘naughty’ desserts to two a week and the rest of the time make healthier dessert choices OR no dessert at all.
Some other ideas I have for the remaining weeks in the June challenge is to keep a food journal, have a green/healthy smoothie for breakfast/lunch every day and exercise every day. I’m still planning but those are some of the ideas I have for myself.
Be on the lookout for the check in post Tuesday, June 12th. That gives you time to plan out your month and get moving on your week 1 goal. I’ll be giving away a few prizes so get excited!
Here is another June challenge you might want to join in on in addition to this one. Do you know of any other June challenges? Please link up below!

Love that you’ve set goals and haven’t given up on them even after a few slip ups! Keep it going!
Thanks so much for the support! I truly appreciate it. I will keep going!
For the month of June I am challenging myself to get in a REAL workout every day, not just a walk.
And this week I am challenging myself to limit my added starchy carbs such as breads, and sugary treats… cookies, jam, etc. One small treat of chocolate per day.
It’s not easy but I feel so much better when I do it.
Awesome challenge, Elle! How are things going in June so far? Looking forward to check in’s next Tuesday!

I’m challenging myself for the month of June to get back to working on strengthening my core. My brother has been harping on me forever to get back to it. I had to get the ole medicine ball out of my closet :p
Secondly, I’m going replace my broken blender so I can again reap the health benefits of smoothies in the comfort of my own home! And, as much as I love Juice it Up (smoothie shop) – I can save so much money making them myself.
Thirdly, my daughter and I are going to try to go down to the beach (not including her beach volleyball tourneys) in the early evening at least once a week this month with the primary purpose of jogging in the sand (and I hate jogging, but I know it will be good for me).
Way to go Kelli! I have that as a focus for one of my weeks but I know it should be consistent. I do follow an online personal training program and it’s part of my strength/weights training but I need to do more.
Love healthy smoothies! Yum!
Don’t forget to come by next Tues. to check in so you can be in the running for a prize for all your awesome hard work.

I’ll absolutely come back by next Tuesday to share my progress! Good luck to you with your 1st week goals as well!
Online personal training! That’s kinda cool – I just searched your site and found your post ‘Loving Best Body Bootcamp’ to see what program you’re using. Nice!
Great, can’t wait to see what you have been up to. And my 1st week has been decent, been watching those desserts lol
I love my online personal trainer Tina. She is great!
