  • Increase your water to at least 8 glasses per day. Week long challenge with with the family. Winner doesn’t have to wash dishes for the next week! :)

  • Start the day right… breakfast idea contest with coworkers. Person to come up with best and easiest, healthiest idea is winner!

  • Fitness activity night of fun with all the neighbors… invite different neighbors to be in charge of different physical fitness activities. End the night with a healthy fruit desert that you’ve made in your new slow cooker-

  • Motivating Mantra Challenge: Each morning for the next week, write a motivating mantra for you to read and reflect upon (e.g., “Just keep moving!” “I am worth it!”) Place it somewhere you will see it often throughout the day (e.g., a post it on your computer, fridge, or car radio).

  • Early Riser Challenge: Wake up 15 minutes earlier than usual for the next week. Use these 15 minutes for yourself. Write in a journal, read the newspaper, sit out the porch with your morning coffee. Kick-start your day with an extra 15 minutes just for you!

  • Take at least thirty minutes to eat each meal. Do not do anything else while you eat it (read, text, answer the phone, drive). Call it your week in France where meal times are devoted to eating and conversation. Extra points if you eat all of your food with utensils (knife, fork and spoon) and put your utensils down between bites. More points if you make an effort to chew your food slowly as well.

    P.S. I don’t need the slow cooker. You can give it to someone else — I am already a slow cook!

  • Get to bed earlier. More sleep equates to feeling better and less slumps during the day that can lead to unnecessary eating to get a boost.

  • Brush your teeth after meals, it helps to not give in to that sweet craving, after all, things don’t taste right just after brushing…

  • Encourage you coworkers to take afternoon walks during coffee break

  • Again, enlist your coworkers to only bring healthy “snacks” to work – instead of all that “baking”

  • Drink more water instead of all the sugary pop drinks

  • Bring a baggie of sugar snap peas to work – when that mid-afternoon sugar/chocolate/carb craving hits, nosh on those instead. You’ll be amazed at how satisfying they are!

  • Get moving with your kids for 20 minutes each day for 2 weeks! Biking, walking, running, playing… Everyone will love it :)

  • I’m in the middle of a running challenge – run at least a mile every day between July 4th and Labor Day. Loving it! It’s a great nudge to get out even for a mile in spite of the summer heat. Feels great to be keeping on each day!!

  • Great giveaway idea! A challenge I am doing right now is to watch 15 minutes of funny videos everyday. Doesn’t sound like a challenge, but it helps me unwind everyday, and that in result makes me rely less on food. When my mood improves I also have more energy to workout!

  • Great Giveaway Idea! I’m already doing this to continue my commitment to get fit. I allow myself to watch my favorite shows on television but only with veggie snacks. AND at each commercial break I get up and do an exercise for the duration of the ads.

  • Try to consume 1g of protein per body weight each day. This help burn fat, build muscle and helps you feel fuller longer so you can make better decisions about food throughout the day.

  • Must have a system. Drink a protein drink for breakfast and to replace one other meal during the day. Plan snack times with well balanced snack bars. Of course I prefer Shaklee Cinch products to reach my goal.

  • Regulate your sleep challenge. Get up at the same time every day for one week. No snooze button allowed! You won’t have an excuse to miss your morning workout or breakfast, and your body will get used to a better sleeping routine.

  • Activity challenge. Be active for at least 10 minutes every day for a week. This is great for newbies! Slow and steady wins the race.

  • Snacking challenge. The next time you want a snack, do something else for 15 minutes. Take a bubble bath, paint your nails, go for a walk, call a friend. Most likely the snacking urge will pass. If you are truly hungry after 15 minutes, have a piece of fruit with a small amount of protein.

  • Stop drinking a glass of wine or bottle of beer after work every night. Replace it with crystal light or iced tea or even better-water! Good luck to me on this challenge!

  • Host a “Biggest Loser Club” challenge in the office. Collect $5.00 or $10.00 per entry and the person who loses more weight in 60 days wins the jackpot. It’s a good incentive to quit bad eating habits when there’s a little cash prize involved ;)

  • How about a lunch time walk challenge. See how many days per week you can get out of your office and walk for at least 30 minutes.

  • Replace five meat-based meals per week with a vegetarian version. You’ll instantly increase your consumption of vitamins and fiber, keeping you full longer!

  • For a summertime treat, opt for homemade 100% fruit smoothie pops. They will curb any sweet craving you have and cool you down too!

  • Eat nothing but bacon and drink nothing less than 20 proof for a week. If SimKicker is meant for you, this will rapidly disgust you. If not, well, it’s its own reward.

  • Turn around all the seating in your house to face the wall (couches, chair etc) It is all off limits for an entire week…instead put out a basket colorful beach towels and exercise equipment (little weights, jump ropes exercise ball etc)That way when the family wants to sit around n watch tv they will be aware of it…They.can work out, stretch, run in place or just stand and work on not be couch potatoes..:)
