April 30 Day Challange – Health and Wellness

Spring is in the air and its time for a new series here on The Ahimsa Life!

Welcome to my new 30 day challenge series!

I have been wanting to shake things up a bit and focus on living a healthier and happier life this year. #goals

The inspiration I needed was found on my own bookshelf. Looking for something to read I was surprised at how many 30 days to a new life, 21 one day yoga challenge type books I had on my shelf. But had I EVER completed one, sad to say no. #procrastination

Ok enough with the hashtags.

Today that all ends!

For the month of April I am committing to –

  • Meditate every morning before starting my day
  • Actually hitting my water goal every day, no matter what!
  • Work out 6 days per week (hey we ALL need a break)
  • And once a week make time for some self care and ME time.

Today is day one. Knowing I was going to start this challenge today I did a little prepping to make it easier to actually complete the challenge this time.

Goal #1 – Morning Mediation practice

From time to time, I toyed with mediation here and there but never really carved out a time to practice on a regular basis. To prepare I downloaded the Calm App for my phone. I intend to use this app mostly, but I did notice that my Audible App also has free meditations and there are plenty of free guided meditations on YouTube as well. I am choosing to focus mostly on Calm because well, they track streaks and I wanted cute pics for my Insta and this blog.

For me it make most sense to meditaite in the morning and set my day off on the right foot. I have a pretty good morning routine and I am going to slide it in right after I get my puppies back in from their morning walk.

The biggest thing I am hoping to come out of having a daily meditation practice is to be more intentional with my day and get it started in the right mindset.

Goal #2 – 70 oz or more of water per day – every day

It’s weird but I have always had trouble drinking all required the water to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I go in spurts and actually crave water and then drop off and only drink 20 oz any given day. I do not drink soda or any juices so it shouldn’t be that hard, but I have still failed.

I am using 3 1 liter bottles and using my reverse osmosis water filter. I like my water really cold so I am putting them in the Refridgerator every night to be ready for the morning.

I will be doing the majority of this challenge in Arizona at the start of the summer season. It has been a challenge getting used to desert life and making sure I am properly hydrated. I am also hoping this will help with my tummy issues and help with some mindless snacking that I tend to do when I am working from home.

Goal #3 – work out 6 days a week

This one should be the easiest for me. I used to be a Bikram junkie, but life happened and I made less and less time for working out. My preferred method is always yoga, I LOVE practicing and the calmness I get from it. But since my son loves the gym I promised to go with him sometimes too.

Membership to the gym, check! Yoga Studio schedule posted next to my desk? Double Check. And just in case I get too busy, I will be using online yoga classes or my home Elliptical and Peloton Bike to make this goal.

Goal 4 – Me time and Self care

Ok moms, you know what I mean here. Just once a week (hopefully more) I will make sure I do something just for me. Reading outside with a cup of tea, getting a massage or a facial, taking a long hot bath, watching a Ted talk or some great documentary I have had saved on Netflix just waiting to be watched.

I am hoping that this time gives me the opportunity to just slow down, learn something new and take care of myself.

So there you have it. I will be checking in on the blog and social media sites with my updates. How about you have you ever completed a 30 day challenge?”

The Ahimsa Life Group Cleanse is happening March 1st!

 

Ever think about doing a cleanse and just didn’t know where to start?

I can guide you through a safe and effective detox program where you not only loose some weight, but you will feel rejuvenated and energized!

I believe its important to cleanse our bodies from time to time.

When is the right time to cleanse?

When you need a jump start for weight loss, when you are feeling sluggish or when your body just doesn’t seem right.

However a lot of the detoxes and cleanses on the market can be intense. In this cleanse you will never feel hungry and will eat delicious whole foods. You will get rid of any thing processed, and feel what its like to thrive on delicious plant based foods.

I will support you the entire way with tips, meal plans, recipes, and all the motivation you need to make this one week the start of a new healthy life.
