      The 21 day challenge will be starting on Sunday. This will be a three week challenge and we will begin a new one every time the old one ends.  

      Research shows that you can create new habits (or eliminate old ones) by doing the same thing for 21 days.  

      We will be doing this challenge in our weightloss/fitness group on Sparkpeople.

      So if you want to join this, here is what you need to do:
      1. Select the habit you want to add or get rid of
      2. Respond to this post (on Sparkpeople) so we can track it for you.
      3. Check in regularly to tell us how many days you were successful.  

      The goal is to stay in the challenge! If you are successful every day, you will stay in the challenge. We are forgiving, so we will give you 2 free passes for days where you just can’t do it. However, if you miss three days, you move to our waiting room and have to wait for the next challenge to start again.  

      Every day, we will post everyone’s number of successes (on Sparkpeople).  

      Here are some ideas for new habits:  

      Drink Water - Set you own goal of how many oz of water you want to drink per day.
      Fitness - Set you own fitness goals
      Tracking Nutrition - Chose to log your food every day.
      Blog - Blog every day
      Sleep - Get a good night sleep
      Other - be creative!!!  

      Let’s do this together!  


      P.S. - If you are not on sparkpeople, you can sign up for free at the name of our group is Fabbers Against Flab.

      Love it

        • America needs to get healthy... ! Great article
          I let myself go for too long taking care of my twins and working full time and then oh yeah i have a great husband also who gets put on the back burner when my esteem was down and i was so tired and busy... If anyone is interested what helped me get off the couch and go for it was i found these great shakes called Shakelology.. they are your healthiest meal of the day and now i have the energy i need.. i get up and work out before going to work and i've actually trully started getting stronger and losing my midsection weight that gets almost every woman after the age of 40... So check it out and if you have any questions send me a message i became a coach out of passion for the product and want to help others get the same results..
          I have a motivational Like page on facebook i just got started with that will also show any upcoming challenges.. A Total U by Tammy McChesney Look forward to making friends on this site .. contact me
