Every now and then I’ll see someone on my Facebook/Instagram newsfeed post photos for a challenge they are trying out. Whether it’s a 365 day photo challenge, or a 30 day workout challenge, I tend to check in to see how they are doing. Many times a person gives up after the first 10 days, so here’s a question for you…

Was there a “challenge” that you’ve tried and actually finished? There’s a challenge I came across Pinterest which involves 21 days of taking control of your nerves. (Great for people with anxiety).

Anxiety Challenge

I want to try it out, but I have commitment issues and I don’t want to disappoint myself if I don’t complete the challenge. I guess I start it…tomorrow!

For those who have been successful with challenges, what has helped you complete them?

    Hey Val! That’s interesting you mention that you have commitment issues. I feel i do as well. What I am working on is learning to say “no” upfront, to force myself into examining my priorities. I find myself being very reactive and not proactive sometimes. I am learning that people will often respect a quality “no” in the long run over a frazzled “yes” that never turns out well. It is a challenge, but I no in the long run it gives me peace.

    I’ve challenged myself to loosing weight many times. Last time I tried Herbal Life, to only have shakes, protein bars and juices each day but after a few months I stopped. It was too expensive and I didn’t have time to workout so I regained a lot of weight.

    losing weight can be hard but for me remembering not to judge myself for the number on the scale and how long it might take me to get to a healthy weight, the healthy way. I think for me it is more about a lifestyle change, than a diet. Choosing to be healthy is a full time job!
