As you can probably guess, our focus for these 28 days are to increase specific aspects for your life. I choose to focus on these items because overall they are objective (based on facts). I believe health is subjective (influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or options) therefore we all need to figure out what healthy means for us.
One week before starting our 28 days, I ask that you track how much of all of these things you already do/consume.
Anyone can start and partake in this program. I love it because it tailors to just about everyone. Meeting you where you already are. If you forget about everything you need to do in a day, most of the time you can do it right before bed. Hopefully, you are able to fit everything in throughout the day (eating 3 fruits and 3 veggies right before bed might be a little much).
The purpose of this program is to help increase the healthy things we are eating and doing, so that we are slowly decreasing the less healthy choices we make every day. After these 28 days the hope is you continue the last two weeks into your every day life.
I like to pack an extra fruit (orange, apple, banana, raspberries) and an extra veggie (carrot, cucumber, peppers, celery) with me for work. On longer days, I pack more. That way I have something to snack on if I get board or hungry. That hardest part is execution. Especially when that co-worker bring donuts to work. Don't deny yourself a donut, just make sure you eat your healthy foods first. Then have ONE. We often crave what we are already eating, so eating healthier can sometimes have withdrawal craving (now there is something to look forward to)!
