I should have probably posted about this earlier but you saw how much I’ve had to say lately (read: a lot) and there was just no more room, haha. Anyway, as soon as I saw Cassie from Back To Her Roots post about this challenge, I knew I was ALL for it! I love that the challenge doesn’t focus on weight loss or fitness like most other challenges, but instead it is very personalized and individual to every person! This is just the thing I need to get my healthy habits locked in during the summer! 🙂

Not only are the graphics for the challenge amazing (I’m really into visually-appealing things, graphic design being one of them… come on guys – I’m a photographer!), but it is totally customizable… Did I mention it looks pretty?

Cassie posted her own habits and the different point values but I changes it all up to fit my own needs.

The challenge is a two-parter, Mind and Body. For both you write down activities you want to do over the course of the summer, each valued a different number of points. The goal is to hit 10,000 points in both areas before Summer ends. Things that are easy for you to do, you give a smaller number of points – but for things that would be challenging to do, you give a bigger number of points. Then at halfway mark (5,000) you can get yourself a prize and a bigger prize at the 10,000 mark. It’s pretty cool. I’m still trying to figure out what prizes to get myself, I’m thinking maybe a spa treatment and massage?

You probably can’t see all of what I wrote on the sheets (which might be a good thing) but here are some examples of stuff I wrote down.

What are some things YOU would include in these lists?

I want to make it bigger but I’m out of ideas, let me pick your brain about this! 🙂

I’m planning on putting these activities into my Android to remember which ones are worth how much and which ones I committed to doing. Right now, I’m only using the photos I’ve taken but I’m on a search for finding a good app to input all of this information into in a clear way. Any app suggestions for me? The photo above was taken with my Droid RAZR HD from Verizon.

  4. Walk your dog. Its’ good for him/her, it’s good for you, and most of all it’s a lot of fun. Don’t have a dog? Borrow the neighbour’s or hell, go to the shelter and find the new love of your life.

  5. What a great idea! I don’t know that I’d be able to hit that many points. The graphics are really cute.
