It’s never too late to make a change….in your health, business, career, faith, relationships, mindset etc. NEVER.

So today, that’s where I begin.

Combining two 30 day challenges to jump-start the development of life habits that will lead to greater success in my fitness, business and life.

30 Day Challenge #1The Whole 30. I’ve done one other Whole 30 challenge a few months ago and have kept some of the great eating habits I developed, but have allowed myself to slip back into some old routines, so it’s time to belly-up again!

30 Day Challenge #2The Miracle Morning 30 Day Challenge. I finished reading The Miracle Morning book by Hal Elrod last week and have already begun putting it into practice, but wasn’t necessarily tracking my progress and being super intentional about it. There’s a great questionnaire and self assessment you can do to make it really personal and to get the best value out of it. So exciting!

One of the things I love is that Hal explains is that most people fail in their long term commitments in developing new habits because they’re not set up properly to succeed with a plan from the beginning. He explains that 30 day challenges are split up into three 10-day phases, so you know more of what to expect:

  1. The first 10 days is where the excitement wears off and you have to push through to succeed.
  2. The second 10 days is where you’re beginning to form a routine, but it’s still so new that you have to be very intentional not to break the cycle.
  3. The last 10 days are where it begins to become fun, as you start noticing results and the habits start to become easier, but the battle isn’t over yet!

The 30 days is just the beginning, but it’s perseverance and persistence that will guarantee your results…if you keep with it!

Current weight: 155.6 pounds

My Goal in 30 days: 145 pounds

My plan is to make a video of my one daily exercise, which part of the Miracle Morning routine, and since I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy I can demonstrate the proper techniques and how to benefit your body the best by what to do, and what not to do.

Watch this video for the first exercise: squats and squat jumps.
