2014 Weekly Challenge #1: An Attitude of Gratitude

2014 Weekly Challenge #1:  An Attitude of Gratitude

Happy New Year!

The year is spread out in front of you like a book of empty pages, ready to be filled.  We at Mama Bootcamp want to help you make this your very best year ever by helping you find your MOJO in every way you can. We hope you will join us by participating in our weekly challenges, getting to Bootcamp and working toward all your goals. 

Challenge #1: An Attitude of Gratitude
Start off the year by actively being thankful for all the good things in your life. Remembering to be thankful for the good stuff - big and small - can help you get your "attitude on right." Whatever you focus on gets bigger and more important. So instead of focusing on the less positive (something you are angry about, negative feelings about a job, etc.) and making those things more important, take a minute to feel thankful for the positives in your life.

 

2013 Weekly Challenge #52: Annual Wrap Up and S.M.A.R.T. Goals

2013 Weekly Challenge #52:  Annual Wrap Up and S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Its hard to believe we're at week 52 and that the year is almost over.

The New Year is often a time for reflection, and for making goals, and that's what we're working on this week.

Take a little quiet time to yourself to reflect back on the last year. What did you do that you are really happy about or proud of? Give yourself some credit for those things and remember what you did to make yourself successful and to meet your goals.

Next, think about the upcoming year. There are 52 fresh new glorious weeks spread out before you and YOU get to decide what you're going to do with them!

2013 Weekly Challenge #51: Give YOURSELF a Gift

2013 Weekly Challenge #51: Give YOURSELF a Gift

Is it just me, or have you spent the last few weeks scouring the planet for gifts?  Gifts for the kids, your best friend, family, coworkers - even the dog gets a gift this time of year.  It is fun to give, and picking out just the right thing is rewarding but...what about YOU?

This might be one of my favorite challenges because this week I want you to give a gift to YOURSELF!

 

2013 Weekly Challenge #50: Hydration

2013 Weekly Challenge #50:  Hydration

Yep, back up on my soap box again...This weeks' challenge is all about HYDRATION.

Living where we do, it is almost impossible to forget to drink water in the summer.  Those triple digit days make it pretty easy to remember our water bottles when we leave the house, and all that sweating reminds us we need to restore our body's balance.

In the winter...well, the winter is a different story. 

2013 Weekly Challenge #46: What have you learned?

2013 Weekly Challenge #46:  What have you learned?

Life is about learning and growing.  When you know better, you can do better, right?  This week, we are thinking about lessons learned.

Think about the important lessons YOU have learned this year, and how it has changed how you think, how you act, how you feel and then...
 

2013 Weekly Challenge #43: An Apple a Day

2013 Weekly Challenge #43:  An Apple a Day

You know that old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Turns out it might be more true than you thought!

Apples are the perfect snack food. They are crunchy, sweet (but not too sweet) and delicious and also chock full of nutrition. Apples are low on the glycemic index which helps stabilize your blood sugar. They are also high in fiber which is not only good for your digestive system, but also helps you feel satisfied. As an extra bonus, apples don't need to be refrigerated and come in their own "wrapping" making them the epitome of a "grab and go" snack.
