The Whole Life Challenge is still 2.5 weeks away, so what should you do in the meantime? Well, if you're in it to win it, now's a really good time to start getting yourself ready! Start looking around you now for how your life lines up with what you just committed yourself to. What's your kitchen like? What restaurants do you like to go to? Can you still eat there during the challenge? This is the time to start building your resources - restaurants, shopping lists, people, food co-ops, and a clean, Whole Life friendly pantry.
You have 2.5 weeks to start stretching the muscles before you need to keep score. What if you started to behave like the challenge starts for you now? Here's a game to play -- start scoring your life exactly as it is right now. Don't even try to change anything. How many points would you get for nutrition? How many for workouts? Mobilization? Fish oil? Use the scoring system to see where you are going to have to move the needle on your challenge. This is not going to be a challenge to be perfect. This is a challenge to be aware!
Don't start playing, for goodness sake, but start observing and you will gain a new level of power over any anxiety you may be feeling right now.
