I was facing some health challenges and decided I would use the Thrive to hold myself accountable to making Better Choices. I started by replacing unhealthy foods with veggies and lean proteins. I had so much more energy that I began exercising regularly, setting a daily goal of 10- to 17,000 steps a day. I lift weights at the gym and when I’m at home, I get on my elliptical. No excuses. Having a regular exercise routine has totally changed my sleep. I used to have trouble sleeping through the night. Now I wake up refreshed and renewed each day.
- I pick one day a week to meal plan.
- By not dining out or stopping for coffee I have saved over $2,200!
- I cut out drinking sweet tea and try to drink a gallon of water a day.
- Remember you’re not alone. Reading others’ success stories will keep you on track.
Before the Thrive Challenge, I was never a person that liked to run, but now my daughter and I go for runs. We can share that experience together — it’s amazing. You never know what you can accomplish. Thrive has shown me that you can change anything, at any time. I really do believe people can do anything they set their minds to.
