Becoming "A Better You!" 66 Day Challenge

Once more, the time is upon us for the FALL Bad Lass 66 Day Challenge.

One of my favorite things about these challenges is bringing people together who are working toward  similar goals.  We all need moral support on days when we just don't feel strong enough to push.  It makes us realize we are part of something bigger; solidarity is a key to success in life and in fitness.

I want to try something a little different for this next challenge.

In society today, we are pressured to feel like we need to look a certain way, be a certain number on the scale or a certain dress size to be deemed worthy of all that is good. While conformance can feel nice, it more often leaves us feeling empty, or judging ourselves against a moving, sliding target. True confidence comes from within. I promote exercise and healthy nutrition because of the way it makes us feel -- inside and out. Don't get me wrong, physical results are a perk, but shouldn't be the focus.

What happens when we sit around waiting for a pot of water to boil? It takes forever! What happens when we decide to fold a load of laundry while we are waiting for the pot of water to boil? Within about 2 seconds, the water is boiling and we have to run over and turn down the heat.

This holds true in fitness as well. When we focus on how much further we can run today than we did yesterday, or how we feel doing it, we can measure positive results. When we let these bursts of positive energy be their own reward, the side benefits invariably arrive in short order. What tasks can we knock off our list this week to get us closer to our lifetime goals? What foods can we eat today to feel energized? When we change our focus, our whole world changes. That is what I want this challenge to be about.

We will work toward the best shape of our life while working toward our loftiest dreams and highest aspirations, one at a time. Whether you want to become a photographer, start your own business, start painting, be a world class mom, learn how to take it easy, run marathons, etc... this challenge will get you closer because it will be done as a team.

When we reach goals, no matter how small or big, we gain confidence. Too often we lose ourselves and who we are because we don't have time for us. When you work toward goals and dreams, you show your kids and others that it's never to late to "go for it". No matter what stage of life you are in, it is never too late. In some stages, it seems we reach goals at a snail's pace. It doesn't matter; just keep going, because the momentum picks up.

I am most excited for this challenge because of our new book club inclusion. I love learning, applying, making mistakes, finding life hacks, seeing small successes, growing, etc. I find my best ideas and creative juice when I read inspiring books. Books that, when applied and not just read, help make me a better me. 

When we go to a bookstore and reach the self-help section, it can be overwhelming. We all want change, and some of us are able to do it on our own. Most of us need accountability through peers or partners. We don't want to be that self-help reader who buys all the books and just reads them. We are going to be 'doers of the word, and not hearers only'. We will apply the knowledge and inspiration we get from these chosen books, and share our experiences with our group.  When we feel good, we look even better.
