I love goal-setting and challenges. It can be difficult to stay the course over the long haul, therefore, I find it more motivating to set up small, short-term challenges that are in alignment with my bigger goals. Other important factors in accomplishing goals are accountability, camaraderie and fun.
Setting goals and being challenged is part of living an extraordinary life. Without goals, I would just do the things that I FEEL like doing and I would end up having what I already, comfortably, have (not my dreams!).
In line with all of these things, and with the final 30 days of my 90 day challenge approaching, I've enlisted the help of my friend and business teammate Lisa to set up a 30 Day Strong Ab Challenge. My hope is that you will want to join us - accountability, camaraderie, fun and prizes - in the quest for bigger goals and dreams in the area of health and fitness.
Here are the details for the upcoming challenge. Date: October 1 - 30 The Strong Ab Challenge was created for the purpose of accountability, camaraderie, and fun while releasing inches around the waist, building Strong Abs and earning prizes!

1) Order 3 bags of USANA Nutrimeal and 2 boxes of Protein Snack Bars. ** Replace one meal with a Nutrimeal Shake each day ** Replace one snack with a Protein Snack Bar each day ** Purchases must be made through Lisa, www.lconnaghan.usana.com or Traci,www.traci.usana.com (current USANA associates contact Traci for participation requirements)

PRIZES: - Bag of Nutrimeal Shake Mix - Box of Protein Snack Bars ** Number of prizes awarded will depend on number of participants. Winners must meet the above mentioned requirements in order to qualify for prizes.
Even if you are not looking to have the strongest abs, I hope you will join in the Strong Ab Challenge. This type of challenge brings out opportunities for growth in many areas of life (perseverance, character, healthy habits, positive example to others, belief in yourself) if you are on a quest to live extraordinary. My goal in this is not simply to have extraordinary abs (although that would be nice), but to develop extraordinary character and to encourage myself and others to live an extraordinary life. It won't be easy, but it will be worth it! Will you join me?
