Well, folks, we're in the home stretch! The 2014 Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is coming to a close, and it has been an incredible month around here! We are excited to share our "After" photos with you when we take them next week. If you've taken before and after shots you'd like to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of the day Monday, March 3, and we'll include them in our month-ending article!
The Lauren's Hope Health Challenge is well into its third week, and things are going pretty well around here! There's been quite a bit of recipe-sharing and leftovers-swapping happening, which is a lot of fun! We've also been sharing resources, such as smaller, local meat markets and out-of-the-way health food stores with good prices. It's really great seeing everyone working toward their goals and supporting one another in the process!
The first-ever Lauren's Hope Health Challenge started this past Saturday, February 1, and the big topic around the office this Monday was how we all did with our health and fitness goals over the weekend. I was excited to share some Paleo blueberry muffins I made, which were really pretty good, despite the fact that they looked nothing like the original recipe's adorably delicious-looking photo.
Earlier this week, I made a big commitment. I decided to adopt a strict Paleo eating plan for one month to try it out, starting on February 1. I decided to share this decision with all of you here on the Lauren’s Hope blog and invite you to join me in making one health-related change for the month of February. It would be fun, I figured, and it would certainly help me stay accountable. So I went about my business, typing up a fun article, putting together some interesting facts and art, and proofreading my work. I had the whole thing all ready to go. And then I scrapped it. I deleted the whole thing.
