Just this week my New Year’s 30 Day Kiss Challenge finished. This challenge was so much more than I expected and I owe all of that to my amazing challengers. They set out just 30 days ago to add one healthy habit to their daily routine and the success and consistency was so much fun to watch. Many of the participants weren’t moving daily, not paying attention to their nutrition or giving their minds the respect it deserves. The determination of these people is what kept me going throughout the entire challenge to give them the best content and guidance I could. They are all proof that you can make big changes to your health in just 30 days by completing at least one healthy habit a day.
Some of the comments I received about the challenge filled up my heart so much! Here is what a lot of them said about the last 30 days.
“Thank you for doing this!! I’m most proud of myself with the exercises because being challenged to doing them was kind of a realization how easy it is to get some extra movement in throughout the day and I’ve been doing something everyday. I plan on adding two things each day for a little bit and then three and so on. I would’ve never known how “easy” it was to get 50 squats in lol
I’m going to keep working hard on meal planning and prepping. That’s a hard area for me but I also know the convenience of it when done “
“Yay!! This has been great! I know how consistent I can be, and also how I need to work on my weekends. The meal prep/planning should come in handy to make weekend meals better. I love going to bed to read now & I’m more conscious of my steps. It’s good to get myself moving throughout the day to earn more. Overall, it was a positive challenge & it opened my eyes to what I’m capable of & what I need to work on. I’m ready to put in the work! ❤”
“This has been amazing. Even though the last couple of days kind of tripped me up as I had to rearrange my schedule and coordinate a trip to Madison on short notice. I appreciate that you incorporated a variety of wellness aspects, not just nutrition and fitness. That is something that’s very important to me but is often overlooked by other “wellness experts”. This has been a fulfilling journey and taught me how to make time for the things that will move me forward. I feel very proud about accomplishing what I did and really grateful for this challenge Brooke Weiss! Its a journey and my journey doesn’t end. I plan to keep these habits in check every day. Even today as I head to Madison I am thinking about what I am going to eat each meal and just decided to pack a cooler from home with my leftovers and healthy snacks to keep me from eating out and eating poorly. I could go on and on, but I will just say that my psychical well being has improved but so has my mental well being and to that I am even more grateful.. Thanks everybody for sharing your journey!!!!!”
