#impACTforLife ACTion Challenge - Week 3

We are half-way through the 
4-week #impACTforLife ACTion Challenge! Personally, it takes my mind and body 2 weeks to adjust to fasting or a nutritional change. Amazingly, it is then, I feel the effect of each meal. Ending the second week is the pivotal fulcrum for anyone desiring to establish good habits. It's when your effort must outweigh your excuses. We're at the "I don't see any physcial changes. What's the use?" point. Let me encourage you to keep going! Even if it's just to complete the four weeks with a community of like-goaled people!

  • Keep hydrated - drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up, before each meal and during exercise - your body will thank you!
  • Keep moving - your heart will thank you! 
  • Keep making good nutritional choices - your family will thank you years later when they are still making those good choices because of your example!

You’ve heard of people doing the INSANITY workout videos. Plyometrics are designed to get your heart rate up and sweat flowing quickly! Remember, listen to your body and have fun with this. Know your abilities. If you have any questions, consult your physician, first.

Eat 3 servings of vegetables by 2pm.
No need to save all your veggies for dinner. Work them in at breakfast and lunch too!

Count your Blessings! After you workout, tend to the family and can sit quietly, note what you are grateful for. Life happens too fast not to inhale, be thankful and exhale. Don’t give up on your pursuit of being healthy in body, mind and spirit! Journal it!
