Resolution: Lose Fat, Gain Muscle

This is the second post in my Resolution series; the first one dealt with decluttering and organizing, which I am still very enthused about.  This post focuses on health pertaining to body composition.  I am just as excited about my plan to lose excess fat and build metabolicly active muscle. Not only are the mushy muscles and blobs of fat covering them unsightly, they are also unhealthy for many reasons.

Originally at the beginning of the month I just figured I would do something Paleo because I have had success with that and I feel good eating that way, but I felt directionless and wanted more. Voila! Mark Sisson from Mark’s Daily Apple recently announced the 21 Day Challenge that begins on Monday January 12th.

I have participated in this challenge 3 or 4 times.  They previously have taken place in September, and I was so bummed this past September when it did not launch.  I was informed when I inquired about it via email that 21 Day Challenge was being postponed until January to hitch onto the New Year’s resolution energy and momentum.  Good idea!

So I am inviting you to join me. It is interesting, a lot of fun, and a good way to get healthy changes going.  The challenge involves eating life-giving food, increasing fitness levels, developing better sleep habits, reducing stress, and much more, all with a spirit of fun and encouragement.

Go to the 21 Day Challenge to check it out and sign up.  There are so many things that you will find for free. I really think you will enjoy this and benefit from it. I would love to hear your success stories at the end of the 3 weeks and what you thought of the challenge.

I challenge YOU!
