Now is the time to reflect back on the past year and start looking ahead. I love that each January, we all get a “fresh start,” and it allows us the opportunity to DREAM BIG.
Are you getting ready to set some goals for the New Year?
I had to admit, I used to set goals each year (spiritual, physical, relational), and I would never live up to them. Either I would cower from setting MEASURABLE goals, or I had these giant goals, but no PLAN as to HOW I would achieve them. Sound familiar?
Last year, the GOBankingRates survey asked respondents, “What are your 2016 resolutions?” and the top 5 answers included:
Do you know HOW you are going to achieve them? If not, I have an answer for you: #REALsolution2017 Challenge Group.
Let me explain how you can achieve these five things through a challenge group. (I’ll start with #2, because once you achieve #2-5, I believe that #1 is a given.)
#3. Lose weight.
Do you know the secret to losing weight? Good nutrition and exercise! Oh, wait. You thought there was an actual “secret?” Nope! But, here is the key: anyone CAN lose weight, but how many actually KEEP it off? How many people keep going to the gym past February? How many fall off the bandwagon by Valentine’s Day? There is no “secret” to weight loss. The secret is how to MAINTAIN that weight loss for good. Enter: #REALsolution2017. This group will be the starting point to your journey, with the option to continue on...well, forever! While I will teach you the things to get on track, you can STAY on track through the online support of other challengers who are doing the EXACT SAME THING! We are in it TOGETHER! Losing weight requires small efforts daily over time. Better food choices, more water, more sleep, and daily exercise. You can do it, and having a PROGRAM to show you HOW is the key. You will have a full fitness program of your choosing, nutrition guide, portion containers, workout calendar, month of Shakeology, and month of Beachbody On Demand (think Netflix for workouts!). No excuses this time!
#4. Save more, spend less.
Well, how am I supposed to save money if you are asking me to PURCHASE something? Yup, I get it. Many times I talk about INVESTING in our health. That’s because the truth is, you will either pay for whole foods and good nutrition, or you will pay for prescriptions and doctor’s visits. Obesity is out of control in our country, as are health care costs. The challenge pack for this group includes Shakeology. What is it? It is a nutrient-dense whole food shake that is the easiest way to get in essential vitamins and nutrients the body needs on a daily basis. Shakeology has been created to fill in the gaps in our daily diet, even those who already eat clean. So, for $4/day, it is worth it for me to have better digestion, better nails and hair, more energy, less cravings, and all the nutrition I need in an on-the-go shake. It saves me from going through the drive-thru for breakfast, it curbs that afternoon crash when I might go through Starbucks, and because I am no longer buying processed snacks, I actually SAVE money! Did I mention I no longer need to buy individual vitamins or expensive protein powders that contain filler ingredients? When all's said and done, a healthy lifestyle can actually SAVE you money in the long run. Think about it!
#5. Spend more time with family and friends.
True story: I broke up with my gym. We had a good relationship, but I didn’t need it anymore. I didn’t even have to pay for it or drive more than 2 miles to get there. I still dumped it. Why? It cost me too much TIME. Have you gone to the gym, wandered around, pick up some random weights, do a few reps, go on to something else, maybe wait for a treadmill, jump on an elliptical for 20 minutes and call it a day? How long did you spend? An hour? Two? How about commute time? Another 30 minutes? When I discovered that I could get personal training, a proven program, and workout calendar telling me EXACTLY what to do each day, I jumped all over that. No more creeping gym guys. No more commute. No more wandering around, wasting time. Through Beachbody programs, the experts are right in my living room, and I spend 22-45 minutes working out. Period. Best part? I can workout WITH my husband and kids. How many times do you and your spouse have to coordinate who works out when? How many babysitters or gym daycare dollars have you spent? No more of that! Working out from home allows me to be WITH them, not away from them. BONUS: I get the set the example DAILY.
The second way in which you can spend more time with family and friends is around the dinner table. When you learn how easy it is to eat healthy from home, you tend to do it more often. No more driving to restaurants, waiting for a table, fighting for the kids to behave. Through #REALsolution2017, I will show you HOW to meal plan, grocery shopping lists, and how to prep for meals to SAVE you precious time. Even if you are on the go, you will learn healthy snacks to have on hand, saving you that rush to find fast food.
And now, we can get back to #1….
#1. Enjoy life to the fullest.
When you learn to live a healthy lifestyle, and have the support of others around you, it becomes easier to enjoy LIFE again! How would you feel if you could play with your kids without getting out of breath? How would you feel if you could help your entire family eat well and go to the doctor less? How would you feel if you created a habit of exercise and gained strength and confidence along the way? My guess is, that would feel pretty dang good. When you have more endurance, you want to do MORE. When you have more energy, you want to experience MORE. When you practice a healthier life, you LIVE more!
What about you?
Are you ready to enjoy 2017 to the fullest?

Since this is the season of GIVING, I can’t help but give something to my brand new challengers as a THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of your journey!
I have learned that my best groups are the ones where I can give more of my attention, therefore, I am ONLY accepting 10 new challengers for this group. One of the most helpful resources that I have used while doing a challenge has been the book, “Made to Crave,” by Lysa Terkeurst. This has been influential in changing the way I think about food. We are made for so much more than to be a slave to food, and through this book, you can learn how to turn those cravings over to God. Because I believe that change needs to happen from the inside out, I want to GIFT this book to help set YOU up for success!!
Another thing that I have found incredibly helpful, has been 1:1 meal planning sessions with my new challengers. I know this is a busy season of the year, but I am offering a FREE 30-minute meal planning sesh to the FIRST 5 new challengers for #REALsolution2017. When we fail to plan, we plan to fail…so why not let me help you get set up with a meal plan you will LOVE?
I can’t wait to have you join me in this #REALsolution2017 Challenge Group! If you are ready to take control of your health, and make a REAL lifestyle change in the New Year, THIS is the place to be!
The time is NOW! Are you ready?
Thank you so much for applying for this group!
Remember: If you are one of the first 10 new challengers to join, I will send you "Made to Crave" as my FREE GIFT! If you are one of the first 5 new challengers, I will also offer a 30-minute meal planning session FOR FREE!
I can't wait to journey with you in the New Year!
Wife. Mother. Runner. Coach. Adoption Advocate. I strive to share HOPE through my journey and help others reach their goals.
