“We are all in this together.” 

I heard about Thrive from a few wellness committees and started my challenge in March. I needed to do a better job being present and cherishing my time with family. It’s going great. We’ve gone on lots of family walks and bike rides. We started a vegetable garden and we’re singing and playing instruments for music time. I feel thankful for being able to focus on my relationship with family. I’m most proud of starting a rainbow hunt in Muskegon. We made rainbows, hung them in front of our house and asked others to do the same. It was shared across our community and it’s a symbol of hope during such an unusual time. We are all in this together.

“I feel proud of setting goals and accomplishing them.”

When I started the Thrive Challenge, I wanted to be more active and spend more time with my family. I bought an exercise bike and my whole family has been using it. I’m walking outside and targeting 10,000 steps a day. As a family, we’ve been doing more game nights and going for walks together. We’ve also been saving money by not eating out. Since January, we’ve saved $5,000! I feel proud of setting goals and accomplishing them. I’m spending more time with family, saving money and quitting smoking. To me, Thrive is a reminder to keep yourself on track. It is really easy and it holds you accountable.

“Taking those first smaller steps helps you achieve the bigger things you want to accomplish.”

Thrive has really helped me keep up with saving money and being more positive with family. I’ve been eating less and I have noticed I’m craving healthy foods. By not shopping as often, I’ve saved $200 in the last 21 days! I’ve been doing weight training at home in my living room and going for walks. A year ago, I had surgery on my left hip. Now my leg is getting a lot stronger. My mood and strength have all improved. Getting closer to my family has been a great added bonus. Taking those first smaller steps helps you achieve the bigger things you want to accomplish.

“I became conscious of the impact my choices have in all areas of my life.”

Thrive works as a daily reminder to spend more time with family and stay busy with fitness. I’m on the college softball team and we travel a lot. With being active with sports, the family and food categories stood out more to me. I’ve been planning out my food for the week and staying away from sugar and sweets. I’ve been developing a closer bond with my family too. We go on walks together and it’s been a really enjoyable time to talk. With Thrive, I became conscious of the impact my choices have in all areas of my life. You will be surprised what can change.

“The only person who can make that right change is you.”

I first heard about Thrive from my gym teacher. Before, I used to do a lot of fast food. Now, after using Thrive for gym class, I’ve switched my diet. I meal prep and eat a lot of chicken, brown rice and vegetables. One of the biggest things I’ve noticed is that my energy levels are 100% better since switching my food. I also saved $600 last month from not eating out. I have started to work out every day. Getting proper calories helped me put on 20 pounds of muscle! Thrive is an easy way to motivate yourself. The only person who can make that right change is you.
