Sung to the tune of 'My favorite things' from the Sound of Music. Quinoa and kale chips and green colored veggies. Salads and fruit bowls and watermelon wedges. Legend Homes as my sponsor and all my team mates Be Healthy Challenge is ever so great! Week 8/9 are in the books and we are heading down the home stretch.  It is very easy for me to know what my future plans hold as each day I feel better, healthier and stronger than the day before.   I love the natural high a good workout brin . . . [View Full]
  This is the 9th week of the Be Healthy Challenge and I have seen some great results.  I’ve been meeting with a great group of people three times per week at Chadwicks Personal Fitness, changed my eating habits and making better health decisions every day.  I feel better, my pants fit better and my energy level has increased.  But what I’m I going to do when the program ends in three weeks?  I have set some SMART goals for myself to make sure I keep seeing the results I have enjoyed s . . . [View Full]
I have learned that being healthy requires some planning and being smart about our choices.  This brings to mind a saying I have heard before, “failure to plan is a plan to fail”!  It just makes sense to think about what you’re doing and where you’re going and take the time to set goals for yourself.  As we are nearing the end of our challenge, on this week 9, we have set a S.M.A.R.T plan.  It’s not only smart, but a good plan of action for continuing my journey of health and nutri . . . [View Full]
So, we all agree that goals are a good thing, right? They should be SMART goals. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. So, related to fitness and health, here are some of my SMART goals.   Goal 1 Specific- I will lose an additional 40 pounds  Measurable - I will accomplish this by the end of September  Achievable - I am currently on track to do this.  Relevant-I know that this will help me to achieve my cycling goals not to mention the added health benefits of sha . . . [View Full]
The 12-week 2015 Be Healthy Challenge kicked off the week of March 23, and it will end the week of June 8. As of today, May 24, we have three more weeks. I am already feeling the pangs of not having my team and trainer to support and encourage me and hold me accountable when the BHC is over. And I'll just tell you now, the support and accountability are two things I haven't figured out how to maintain. In other areas, though, I have set some goals in managing my future health, which I will share . . . [View Full]
It's so hard to believe that the 12-week Be Healthy Challenge is winding down.  For our current blog entry, Challengers are charged to set SMART goals for the upcoming 12 weeks, so we can continue our current momentum and keep making positive, healthy choices in the weeks to come.  Setting measurable, short-term goals is a great way to make sure that we keep making strides in the right direction to continue becoming healthier.  In thinking about how I want my health journey to look in the wee . . . [View Full]
This week team members were asked to create S.M.A.R.T. plans for personal health and wellness and to share them with our readers. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. Here is my S.M.A.R.T. plan: Specific: I want to join a 9 hole golf group/play again regularly Measurable: I will do specific exercises at the gym that will improve overall strength and go to the driving range at least twice a week. Achievable: I haven't played in a while and u . . . [View Full]
Week 9 has ended and there is only three more weeks of the Be Healthy Challenge.  Our blog challenge this week is SMART Goals.  I thought long and hard on this subject.  I really don't have any big goals of walking a 10k or running a race.  I began this challenge to lose weight, get in shape and feel better about myself.  All of this has happen plus much more!  I have made some wonderful friends, learned some great nutritional information plus I am feeling healthier and stronger.  So what . . . [View Full]
HOW is it time for the Be Healthy Challenge wind-down?  I feel bittersweet about the BHC coming to an end!   I've made a few goals for myself. These were done using the S.M.A.R.T Goals Method. SMART GOALS ARE: Specific: What do I want to accomplish? Measurable: time, distance, weight, percent are all measurable. Make sure your goal has a measurable criteria. Achievable: Within reach, and do-able. Relevant: If you want to get your health in order, your goals should be health-related. T . . . [View Full]
For the last couple of weeks, we were asked to think about life after the challenge is over with. What are our goals and how are we going to achieve them. I have thought about this many times over the course of this challenge and what I am going to do to ensure that I continue my quest to be healthy and be fit. Turning 43 in a few days with a son going into 4th grade and a 3 year old that is constantly keeping me on my toes is great motivation to keep in shape and eat healthier on a daily basis! . . . [View Full]
It's so hard to believe that we've been on this journey for nine weeks!  There is only a few more weeks to go and then our "next" 12 weeks begins.  In order to continue and not lose momentum, we are setting SMART goals.  By setting short term goals that are attainable, we are setting ourselves up for success.  This is so important at this point.  I would hate to waste all that I've learned during this challenge by letting it go.  So, in order to stay healthy and create healthy habits, I am . . . [View Full]
Over the past 2 weeks, challenge member have been asked to reflect on the past nine weeks and begin to prepare for the next 12 weeks after this challenge ends.  It's been so great to be accountable to a team and to earn points for every step of the challenge, because I'm competitive and I would never let my team down by not getting my points each week.  But looking towards the future, I have to set goals to keep me motivated and keep up with my health without my teammates!  We have been asked . . . [View Full]
            I can hardly believe that we’re so close to the end of the first twelve weeks of the Be Healthy Challenge. Yes, I said the first twelve weeks. I think the second twelve weeks will be the true test. That’s why I need a roadmap. The follow-up to all of this hard work, learning, and changing is so important. I think it’s obvious that the powers that be of the Be Healthy Challenge already knew this. Therefore, they prompted us to think about and set goals for our future  . . . [View Full]
