🍁A virtual challenge is where you pick something you want to personally work on for set period of time, set a goal, & choose a reward for yourself. 🍁If you are on Weight Watchers Connect, site, Use the challenge hashtag, #40DayFallFix, when you post (if you choose to post) and then we can all follow along during the challenge.  You could choose to use this hashtag on other social media sites if you so desire.  My friend, Ingrid (@ingridalifetime on Connect) and I just finished hosting a #90daySummerSizzle and we are ready for some fresh fall goals to ease our way into a successful autumn.

🍁Start date is whenever you choose to start the challenge.  Today is September 2nd, so the beginning of a month is always a good time to start something new.  Here is an article about why a 40-day challenge can be helpful in breaking a habit.

🍁We were thinking that working on PORTION CONTROL might be an excellent use of this #40DayFallFix 🍂challenge as it is a challenge with #Freestyle’s current method of tracking. We’ve come up with some participation options for you to choose from:

🛠Option A:  Choose 1 or more foods that you have ‘trouble’ managing the portions for & decide to work on finding & practicing portion control of those specific foods for the next 40 days.

🛠Option B:  Make it a properly-portioned-plate-kind-of challenge for yourself.  Review visual cues for managing portion sizes, make a chart for either each meal or each day that you ‘manage your portions’ or ‘exercise portion control’.

✳️Links for portion sizes review:

Video about portion sizes only using your hands to build your plate

or a quick primer from Weight Watchers on using your hands as measuring devices

or for another image (I saved it on my Pinterest account) on using your hands as portion control guides

🛠Option C:  Combine Option A & B

🛠Option D:  Pick another habit that you’d like to personally ‘fix’ or work on over the next 40 days.

😄😄That’s it.

➡️Remember to make your goals ‘SMART’ goals.

Just trying to live my life as mindfully as I can. We only get one shot at this life & I do not want to miss a thing! I lost almost 50 pounds in 2016 (and I am still an active Weight Watchers Member) and I feel great...and this feeling is not about what I lost, it is about all the perspective I have gained. My journey is always evolving, so I decided that blogging about it would be a great way to share the joy. Writing about my journey keeps me mindful! Thanks for coming along! Live Life Mindfully
