February Challenge

It's time for a new challenge for me!  You guys know how I am - I like challenges and I like to make up imaginary deadlines for said challenge.  This month I thought it was time to bring back the monthly challenge instead of the program challenge only.  What is the challenge?  Watch the video and see :)

I am a dork and I'm nervous you all will think I am super crazy so please be nice :)  Apparently according to one of my besties who previewed this for me - it's exactly how I am in real life...oye, lol!  I will do more videos over the next month on this challenge and other things!  

I will post my pictures and measurements and weight tomorrow on the 1st.  If you are joining me please let me know!  I will use #operationsize16 on Instagram and Twitter on my related posts.  I will post a focus area for each week of the challenge with specific goals for what areas I need to hit that week.  That will also go up tomorrow.  I'm excited, I love a good PUSH goal for a month in order to get me motivated. 

I think that's it for setting up the challenge.  Talk to you all soon!

30 Day Push

Like many people - I often set goals for myself.  Goals at my 9-5, goals for my personal life, goals for my body, goals for where I want to be in a few years.  And I generally meet my bigger goals.  But not always my smaller goals.  I sometimes put on the backburner the thing that would really make me happy because they aren't the top things.  I am good at accomplishing one or two things a year, but it seems like everything else gets shafted for those few things.

Enter the 30 day PUSH.

The 30 day push is a program set up by one of my fitness idols Chalene Johnson (she's the woman who leads Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, and created Turbo Kick).  It's a program that is set up to get you to (1) establish your priorities then (2) based on your priorities, determine what your goals really are (not what someone told you they should be) followed by (3) creating a system to get you to accomplish these goals.  It's really been an amazing experience the last 12 days starting this process and starting to implement the system.  It's a big change for me and it's been a good change.  I am now seeing my productivity skyrocket and I'm making time for the things that will make the biggest difference in my life.  To make this even more lifechanging my partner in crime, the hubby, is doing it too.  It's really awesome to talk to him about these goals and priorities, especially when we realize that there are things we can do to help the other get farther towards one of them.  Almost all of our goals are aligned somehow - we didn't do any of that part together - so that is pretty cool.

The 30 day PUSH program is 100% free and definitely something that I would highly recommend looking into if you are looking for a really good program to help you with goal setting and goal achieving.  I am a member of a PUSH group for accountability, which has been very awesome.  Most of us are halfway through.  If there are people that are interested in starting now, please sign up and email me - healthyengineer@gmail.com - and I will set up another group.  If you just want an accountability partner email me too.  I have a few right now and it has been amazingly helpful!  My goals are all over the map - professional, personal, and physical - and I'm confident I will achieve them in 2013!!
