Week 1: Goals

Your STRONG Challenge begins with setting fitness goals. Although we'll be encouraging you in other areas of your life, we want to start by focusing on physical health and wellness. Start by setting goals to achieve during the next six weeks (watch the video for guidance). Whether you are at the "walk around the block" level or at the "run the next marathon" level, start where you are, and we'll grow from there. Achieving goals will set the foundation for healthier habits for life. You were made for more!

WELL DONE! TAKING THIS FIRST STEP IS A DECLARATION AGAINST FAILURE AND FRUSTRATION.

Accountability

Write your goals on the Strong Tracking Sheet  (download here) and post them in a prominent place in your home, somewhere that will remind you of your progress and commitment every day.  Next, find an accountability buddy or partner who will provide the motivation you’ll need for the next few weeks (this is a critical step).  Finally, join the Facebook Community Group (link here) and share your struggles, failures, and success with your new friends!
