Challenges Galore

Only one day left of the Whole Life Challenge. I guess the 2 weeks are over on Thursday night (tomorrow night), but I’m gonna keep going after that. I still need work! Here’s an update:


  1. Yoga – yes! I’m finally doing this every day. Tom Morley’s “buns & thighs yoga” has invigorated me. I’ve done it every morning for the past 3 days. It’s only 20 minutes and it is my favorite 20 minute class ever.
  2. Walking – I love walking. On Monday I walked to and from the post office. Yesterday I did 2 walking videos from exercise tv – a walking warm-up and a walking cool-down (each 10 minutes). They’re under pink ribbon workouts if you want to find them.Β  Today I walked for exactly 10 minutes on the treadmill before I went on the stepper.
  3. New Meals – definitely keeping up with this, too. Trying to de-clutter my kitchen will help even more. We were planning on going out to Loving Hut (a vegan restaurant) for our 3.5 year um… half-iversary?Β  But my stomach has been bugging me so we’re saving that for later this week.
  4. Organic – yep, yep, yep. Only my greens have to be organic, but I try to get the other stuff too.
  5. Green Oat Bran – duh. I LOVE this part of the challenge. Oat bran + peanut butter + spinach make Maggie one happy girl.

I think I’m finally getting into the swing of things, which is why I am definitely not going to stop. I’m even thinking of adding some more…

  • de-clutter daily
  • drink a glass of water before I go to bed (I always wake up parched)
  • take 5-10 minutes each day to clean/organize something
  • take a few deep breaths before I make any decisions – I’m impulsive, to say the least.

I enjoy challenging myself. Cindy loves it too – I get great ideas from her sweet blog. Don’t forget to check out the other participants. They’ve added some great ideas to the ones I came up with.

What other challenges would you add?Β  What has been your biggest challenge?

  1. I love the idea of challenge myself for a good cause! It feels great both physically and mentally being able to continue with the challenge! πŸ™‚
    I think I need to add to mine the trying new food part!

  2. I decided that this week is anti-procrastination week. There’s so many things that I’ve been putting off that every day this week I’m going to get at last a few of them done. It’s related to the decluttering idea, since that one of the things I’ve been procrastinating.

  3. This has been a great 2 weeks! I really feel much better about challenging myself to be a more “wholesome” person! Great idea and thanks for including me in this journey with you.

  4. Nothing says “you’ve gotten old baby” like a “run” challenge

    It’s my real personal goal to show up my younger brother at the next family get together…. ” race you to the end of the street and back”

    some things never get old..

    just ME…HACK

    OH and Anti-Procrastination sounds LIKE a great goal….. for September.

    (i do that too waaaay too much)
    Happy Thursday Everyone πŸ™‚

  6. I didn’t post up every day, but have been doing it everyday! I am going to try to post up on my results today, as well as the next step in my Whole Live Challenge. Thanks for this great idea Maggie!
