Daily Dose 30 Day Healthy Living Challenge!!

Happy Friday Everyone!  Hope you all had a great week!  Update on my herbs, they still doing good, and all still alive!  My basil survived it's fall a couple weeks ago and is looking great :)  Any fun plans for the weekend?

So, the holidays are coming up quickly (Monday is October!), and that tends to be a rough time for eating well and maintaining healthy habits!  I think this is the perfect time for a 30 day challenge!  This pre-holiday 30 day challenge will be focused on very small daily goals that help reinforce healthy living habits.  No focus on weight or weight loss (of course if you are trying to lose, these all are helpful!).  Anyone can join.  To join in, make sure you have liked the Daily Dose Facebook Page here: Daily Dose Facebook.  That is where each day's goal will be posted, and scores will be posted.  They will be posted on the blog as well, you can check here and post your score here if you would rather.

So, how it will work is each day for 30 days a small goal for the next day will be posted, for example:
     +Walk 15 minutes today
     + Drink 8+ glasses of water today
     + Put the salt shaker down, no added salt today

Each day will be different, and then there will be one weekly goal, which will be posted on Wednesdays.  I like to have the weekend in the middle :)  That goal will be similar to the daily goal, but we will try to complete it each day for a week.  So, you will only have two things to think about during the day, and you will feel better!  You will be ready to come into the holiday season and be successful!  No counting calories or depriving yourself.  The goal is to feel better and find which habits you already do, and which you need to work on.  It's a perfect learning experience!

Each day you have the opportunity to get 2 points, one for the daily goal, and one for the weekly goal.  Post your score to Facebook on the goal post each day.  There will be a couple bonus points thrown in for fun and shake things up, but still will keep it simple.  The winner will be determined by the most points after 30 days, and will win a prize, there will be 3 super cool options to pick between :)  Only requirement is that you post daily.  You can miss one day posting and make up for it the next day by posting both day's scores, but if you miss 2 consecutive days you will be out for the win (but of course can still participate!)  So....who wants in??  It's only 30 days!  You can do it, and you will see results :) 

Two bonus points to start out with if you share this on your Facebook page or Twitter, just post a comment here or on facebook that you shared it :)  It will be fun to have a bigger group participating, more motivating!  If we have enough people participating, there will be two or even three winners!  

Competition starts next Wednesday, October 3, and goes through Friday, November 2.   Questions before you decide??  Post them here or on Facebook!
