Monday, May 24th, is the last week of START THE ADVENTURE . . . for the Rest of Your Life Fitness Challenge. I loved this timely Instagram post from Susan Niebergall Fitness. THERE IS NO FINISH LINE. Well said. So we're getting close to the ....for the Rest of Your Life part of the Challenge.
What have been your take aways? What successes have you had? Disappointments? We've heard from ladies who have tracked for the first time and it's making a difference. Scheduling workouts on the calendar has helped some. Adding strength workouts has been a goal for all of you - how has it felt to do it and are you already planning your June calendar? New habits, new long term goals towards a more powerful life, in more ways than just strong muscles!
WATER MAKES YOUR WORLD GO ROUND
Here's a link to Your Health Matters, a newsletter put out by a Revel member, Marla Mulkey, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and it's a great piece on the importance of drinking water for weight loss, energy, and more.
GROW YOUR OWN - BROCCOLI SPROUTS, THAT IS
Fellow Challenge participant Julie Skehan shares this tip for growing broccoli sprouts! I first heard about the nutritional value of broccoli sprouts from this interview Dr. Alyssa Kuhn, Keep the Adventure Alive, conducted with Dr. Ann of Dr. Ann Wellness: Everything You Need to Know About Chronic Inflammation. I haven't seen them in my local market so I was interested when Julie mentioned a kit she uses to grow her own and it only takes a few days, my kind of gardening!
ARE YOU A MOUTH BREATHER?
Learn about the harm that comes from breathing through your mouth rather than your nose and that's just the beginning of what you'll learn from James Nestor's book, Breath, which is all about breathing. A couple Challenge participants mentioned reading it, so I did. I highly recommend it. Here's a Revel interview to learn more.
VEGETABLES, ARE YOU EATING YOUR VEGETABLES?
This easy recipe for roasting vegetables might appeal to you as a way to add more vegetables to your menus. The beauty of it is you can add whatever veggies you have on hand.
SUPPORT YOUR FELLOW CHALLENGE PARTICIPANTS
Jenn Ward, one of our fellow participants has launched a new business, The Women's Launch Table, with her partner Renata Jabuka. If you or someone you know is interested in started a new business, here's a place to get help.
Do you have a business you'd like us to tell others about? Networking with each other is a great way to support other women.
