Today, June 30th, is technically the last day of my How to Eat Challenge. Technically. I’m not completely done with the challenge, but having spent the past month practicing these behaviors, it’s a perfect day to review How to Eat Challenge.
Last week I discussed the difference between a goal as a Desired Outcome (which we don’t have control over) and putting systems into place which will dramatically improve your chances of achieving your Desired Outcome. We can achieve success if we are willing to put in the work. The work can be a bit overwhelming at times. Today I’m going to try to break the process of creating systems down, making it not only easier, but way more fun.
I am beginning to think 30 days is a bit long for such a challenge. Honestly, not because I can’t do it. I am very fortunate that circumstances allow me and my husband to finish the How to Eat Challenge.
I think the most important aspect in starting our fitness journey is finding your “why”. Why are you looking to lose weight, or run a 5K, or get in the best shape of your life? What’s in it for you?
Finding your Why is the reason you get up in the morning. It’s what fires you up, why you stay active and keep working towards your dreams and ambitions. Your Why is your true purpose in life.
Honestly, I thought I’d be writing a lot more about How to Eat, but this week has shown me how exhaustingly busy I make myself. Ideas for blog posts get pushed to the back-burner and I feel I’m constantly short on time while overwhelmed with material and things to do. But none of that really has much to do with the How to Eat Challenge, or how Week 2 went…
Right before the world shutdown and everything closed, I was fortunate enough to visit a library and picked up a small stack of books which piqued my interest. Most of these books were about writing or the creative process, and through the shelter-in-place period in April and May, I read most of these books. They were mostly inspiring and definitely pertinent to my writing life.
In case you are not up to speed with what is happening this month over here in ZooFit HQ, we are conducting an experiment to discover how our behaviors around eating affect our health and well-being. I believe it’s not just what you eat, but how you eat that can impact our fitness.
When I created Fandom Fitness within the ZooFit program, it was mainly a combination of my passion for all things geeky and nerdy and as enrichment, a way to make fitness more fun and engaging.
