A 30-day challenge is the next best thing from 50 Shades of Grey. Founder of Identity Magazine, Susan Vernicek has set herself up for another challenge inspired by the up and coming book published by HarperCollins, Balance Your Life, Balance the Scale, written by Jennifer Tuma-Young.
My 30-Day Challenge
We all have those seasons. Special occasions like a wedding, prom, anniversary, or even a book that inspire us to shift our way of living, thinking, acting or even eating. I’ve recently been inspired by the soon-to-be (at least in my eyes) bestselling book, BALANCE YOUR LIFE, BALANCE THE SCALE, written by Jennifer Tuma-Young.
Watch out ladies, this is going to be the next “50 Shades”, phenomenon because this book will create a movement where women will finally ditch the dieting mentality that 3 out of 4 of us have and find their true happiness and balance.
Because I am on the go and working hard often, just like you. I lack consistency and regimen in my life. I haven’t been disciplined since 2007 when I was taking spin class at 5:30 am, and Pilates after that. I was at my healthiest, happiest, and most balanced self. I want to challenge myself to get there again thanks to the “Balance Your Life, Balance the Scale” book.
I want to take on this challenge for many reasons. The first is simply for that overall balance and feeling in control. I can close my eyes now and feel that amazing feeling, and glad it’s an unforgettable feeling. The second reason is that I have a wedding June 1, 2013 to feel good at. I have a busy schedule with my career, and I have to keep up with my forever growing family.
So, I have marked my calendar already and I am starting this Friday, Sept. 14, 2012. I actually started a few days ago, but I’ll count it as a warm up ;).
My 30-day challenge is, in order, when I get up and I will hold my Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle, guide cards. I will pick my daily card because I love this fun way to start my morning and have a guide and direction on how to approach my day. The second part to my 30-day challenge is to complete my P90X training. Since I miss playing soccer, this is the closest workout bringing me back to pre-season. I wish I could get on the field with my fiancé’s team, but he said no. Yup, I asked if I could just sneak on the field and train with the college girls. Ha-ha- You gotta ask, right?
The third part of my 30-day challenge is to improve my awareness of my passive aggressiveness. Gosh, I’ve had this obstacle for years! I mostly use with Rob, my fiancé. I’m not 100 percent sure why, but I think it’s because I don’t want to sound like I’m nagging. I think that being passive aggressive is a better approach than nagging. Obviously, it’s not and I need to find the right balance in my approach.
I can pinpoint the passive aggressiveness; it’s all comments on the house, cleaning, and other non-important issues. So I know where to start.
Let’s break down my 30-day challenge:
1. Read my morning inspiration guide cards.
2. Workout with my daily P90X challenge.
3. Simmer down on my passive aggressiveness with Rob.
NOW- IT’S YOUR TURN!’
