Welcome to Wellness Adventure’s Your 30-Day Dedicate Project!
This online program is designed to guide, motivate, and significantly help you attain better health and establish lifelong healthful habits.
Your 30-Day Dedicate Project is a 30-day plan, but you are highly encouraged to make it a priority for 91 days, which is 1/4 of a year, and then re-evaluate. Hopefully, most of it you will want to continue, although a few things might be temporary, like not eating nightshades for 30 days to see if it makes any noticeable difference, then going back to them if they do indeed not seem to bother you. Or maybe to try a temporary bone broth or soup fast.
You are about to embark on an adventure to improve your life in a variety of ways. You will choose 6-12 things that you want to work on. If you follow this plan with dedication, at the end of the 30 days you will be healthier, more productive, more energetic, and more enthused about life, as well as developed a few new good habits.
Manhattan Project Mentality
One of its features is the what I call the Manhattan Project Mentality. The Manhattan Project took place in the 1940’s by the United States, with the help of the UK and Canada, to accomplish the feat of inventing the first nuclear bomb before our enemies did. The following are some elements that are evident or that I supposed were crucial to the success in achieving this goal.
- This is a huge priority
- Apply all available resources
- Be willing to sacrifice time, money, and energy to accomplish
- Take drastic measures
- Think outside the box
- Get great minds involved
- Know and remember your why
- Garner support from others
Now of course you are only going to take this type of thinking so far. But I think it is really important to get away from a lukewarm attitude towards health goals. That just makes it really easy to be inconsistent, half-hearted, and discouraged because you don’t see results fast enough, and forget what you are even doing anyway.

Wellness encompasses so much more than how much you weigh, or how high your cholesterol level is. It includes things like proper sleep, stress management, attitudes, emotional states, and fitness levels, plus much more.
Preparing for Success
There are 4 short videos which I encourage you to watch before beginning Your 30-Day Dedicate Project. There are also 10 handouts that need to be printed and put in a handy folder or notebook for you to write on and reference often.
The handouts in PDF form include:
- List of Possible Focus Items. Choose 6-12 items from the list to focus on during the 30-day program. Also feel free to add your own. After the 30 days are up you can always add more to work on, but only choose 12 at the most for these 30 days.
- Month calendar pages. Print 4, or if you would rather, just 2 for now. Write out the month and fill in the dates. Use one page per month, so your 30 days may cover parts of two pages, like January & February, depending on when you start. Feel to decorate it or use color. Make it your own.
- My Why page. Please do not skip this. You need to have a strong why to carry you through to success. Consider why you spent the money buying this program. Consider why you are willing to spend time and effort on it. What are your goals and why?
- Mindful Eating Defined/Manhattan Project Mentality. Print on card stock if you have it. Cut the two sections out as a cards to put on your refrigerator, bathroom mirror, or put in your purse. Whatever handy spot you put them in, refer to them frequently, especially at first.
- Balanced Life Worksheet
- Assessment Sheet. Fill this out as much as you want. The more the better.
- Motivations & Exhortations sheet. I included some of my favorites that resonate with me. I encourage you to add to them with any others that you run across that speak to you. What motivates and inspires me may be different than what moves you.
- Journal Pages (print 30 of these). Some people like to journal more than others. If you do not like to journal please do it anyway for just 30 days, even if it is just briefly. You may find you like it. But either way, it will prove to be helpful.
- Foods to Enjoy
- Foods to Avoid. Add any other foods that you know that you do not tolerate or that are questionable.
