Embarking on a Health Challenge: A Journey to a Better Me

Updated: May 30

About six years ago, I decided to shake up my lifestyle by taking on a personal challenge: I committed to not eating out for 30 days by sharing a simple photo on social media. This meant no fast food, no sit-down restaurants, no grocery store snacking, no beverages outside the home, and no coffee or tea from outside the home. I limited my grocery shopping to once a week, every Sunday, and aimed to see how much money I could save and how much weight I could lose in just one month.

The original post that started everything!

The Power of a Health Challenge

I’ve never been a huge fan of diets, but I do love a good health challenge that pushes me to be more disciplined in my current lifestyle. The first time I did this, I took before and after pictures to document the journey. The changes were significant: a sleeker version of myself, a sharper mind, and a healthier overall feeling. While I didn't drastically alter my diet, simply eliminating the unhealthy foods I used to eat a few times a week at restaurants made a huge difference.

The Impact of Simple Changes

By sticking to a balanced diet high in fruits and vegetables and sourcing local, organic meat when available and healthy grains and fats, I was able to see tangible improvements. This experience underscored the impact of making small, consistent changes and avoiding processed foods. The result? A healthier, happier me.

A Personal Triumph: The Wedding Dress

One of the most memorable moments during this journey was attending a family wedding. For the first time since college, I fit into a dress I hadn’t worn in years. The compliments from family and friends about how toned and healthy I looked were overwhelming. It was a testament to the hard work and dedication I had put into the challenge. This experience was not just about looking good but feeling confident and vibrant.

Announcing the Summer Body Transformation Food & LifeStyle Challenge

Now, I’m excited to share that my next challenge, the Summer Body Transformation, is about to begin. While some of you are taking part in the group personal training sessions. I’m inviting all of you to join me freely for the food and lifestyle portion challenge. We have two versions of this challenge to accommodate different levels of commitment and goals: Moderate and Elite.

Moderate Summer Challenge (30 Days)

  • No fast food or sit-down restaurants

  • No grocery store snacking

  • No beverages outside the home

  • No coffee or tea from outside the home

  • Grocery shopping every Sunday

  • Little to no processed food

  • Weekly meal plan in advance

Elite Summer Challenge (60 Days)

  • Includes all aspects of the Moderate Challenge

  • Tracking macros to balance your diet for optimal health goals

Support and Community

As an internationally certified holistic health coach and nutritionist, I’m here to provide support throughout this challenge. We will create a group on our website where everyone can interact, share progress, and keep each other motivated. I encourage participants to keep track of their journey with before and after pictures and journal logs. Writing down your goals and reflecting on your progress can be incredibly motivating and insightful.

Sustaining Healthy Habits

One of the best parts of these challenges is that I often find myself maintaining the healthy habits I develop for much longer than originally anticipated. The longer I stick with it, the more ingrained these habits become, leading to lasting improvements in my health and lifestyle.

Join Us!

The challenge begins on June 3rd, with June 2nd designated as your meal prep day. This is an opportunity to reset your habits, improve your health, and achieve your personal goals. Let’s embark on this journey together and see the incredible changes we can make in just a few weeks.

Here’s to a healthier, happier summer!
