Who's Ready to Get Their Weight Loss Goals Back On Track? #3030Challenge

It's time for the first 30/30 Challenge of 2015!

February: Fight The Winter Blahs! 

For the next 30 days, devote 30 minutes a day to creating a healthy lifestyle.

This month get control of your crappy snacking, soda drinking and couch potato tendencies.

Clean out the pantry then restock it with healthy snacks and whole grains.

Buy veggies and fruit not chips and candy.

Maybe even sign up for at least one yoga/spin/Pilate's class (working up to 3-4)

The goal this month is to kick start a healthy lifestyle for your entire family.  This is NOT a diet. This is all about you changing the way your family eats. Replace crap snacks with healthy snacks.  Make one meal a week from a new recipe that is full of healthy goodness.  Don't buy sodas for one month.  Or just one week. 
Make small changes that add up to a big lifestyles changes!

For those just joining, the 30/30 Challenge is designed to help you create small attainable goals that add up to BIG results. I wish I could take credit for the 30/30, but I first learned about it on the TV Show, The Doctors. Over the last year I have tailored it to not only address exercise, but a complete lifestyle adjustment. Now that I am a mother, my poor nutrition and lazy ways don't only effect me.  I want to raise my son to be active and healthy, and the only way to do that is lead by example.  

Don't get me wrong, we have donuts for breakfast and french fries for lunch, but only as a very rare treat. All the other days, I do my best to make wise choices for my family.  

I challenge you this month to fight the winter blah by eating clean and getting as much exercise as possible!  I can't wait to hear how you do!

TIP: Don't want to join a gym? 

Do 30 of anything to keep you going...

do one or all..

30 Sit-ups while waiting for the coffee to brew. 
30 Lunges while watching Mickey Mouse Club House with your little.
30 Squats while brushing your teeth
30 jumping jacks with your little one to get that last bit of energy out before bed.
Lift your baby up over your head 30 times...  Babies love that! Or a sack of flour.. or a dumbbell...
Walk in place while doing the dishes...
