It’s still a very disturbing and upsetting image to see and think about…
I was having a conversation with a friend over the weekend about the Whole Life Challenge. He said that he didn’t need or want that added pressure on him every day to count points. Are there any of you out there that are feeling the same way?
I responded to my friend that if that was why or why not he was going to participate in the Challenge, he was doing it for the wrong reason. Points are a way to make it interesting and fun – to make it a game. But the purpose of participating in the Whole Life Challenge is to take eight weeks to look at the regular choices you make every day that have an effect on your health, fitness and life. And about shedding light on these choices… so that as you move forward in life, you’ve developed one (or more) new healthy habits, you’ve got knowledge about what sorts of choices you make that you could improve on, and you’ve got experience in making subtle, sustainable changes that are realistic for your life. AND, you get to do this in a community of people that are committed to the same thing you are. Points? Forget about them. Scoring points is simply a way to keep you accountable and byproduct of you participating in the WLC in a way that is meaningful and realistic for you and your life.
So what are YOU waiting for?
