This coming Monday, Michelle is starting a 30-Day Weight Loss-athon, an online program of tiny-but-powerful actions that help you lose weight. All in just 30 days, 10 minutes a day!
Here’s how it works:
1. Each day I’ll give you a 10-minute task related to weight loss.
That’s right – just a teeny weeny 10 minutes! I might ask you to plan, buy, organize or do something. Some tasks will be physical, like walking around the block; others will take no more movement than your synapses firing. All tasks will be something simple, or at least broken down into easy-to-follow steps.
2. Each day you read and complete your action.
3. After completing your task, you check in on that day’s post.
You can check in by leaving a comment to say you’ve done the task. Even if you don’t do the action, check in daily so you maintain momentum and keep your commitment. You don’t have to be perfect but you do have to be committed.
That’s only 10 minutes a day for 30 days – totally achievable. Find out more information here.
