Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 8

Don't Overdo it

Guidelines:
We know we can't help ourselves during the Holidays, but we need to know when enough is enough. Enjoy that turkey on Thanksgiving, eat a slice of that Pie, have a glass of wine, but don't get up for 2nd's & 3rd's.

Enjoy yourslef

Guidelines:
If you want to eat a cookie, by all means. Having a little treat once in awhile will help curb your cravings and prevent you from eating everything in sight.

Weeks 1 to 8

Relax

Guidelines:
The Holidays bring stress to a lot of people, which defeats the whole purpose of it. Relax and enjoy the time spent with your family. Make holiday cooking, cleaning & shopping fun activities if you have to do them, don't make it feel like a chore. Take time to breathe and calm yourself every chance you get.
