Hello Everyone! As some of you may know, Impact Chiropractic is halfway through the 30 Day Challenge. If you are joining us, we hope it is going well and would love to hear your half way results. Dr. Elise and Dr. Lara are loving it so far, both having lost over 5 pounds already and their energy levels are sky rocketing. We know that these positive lifestyle changes are vital to our health and well-being.
For those of you who don’t know what our 30 Day Challenge is, let’s dive in to all it’s greatness.
We are aiming to take control of our health and our lives. We will continue to prevent and reverse sickness and disease through healthy lifestyle choices. We are learning a food plan that works, not a diet. We will listen to our bodies and exercise appropriately. We will eliminate toxic exposures which can lead to dis-ease.
Essentials for Succeeding our Challenge:
Mindset: What we needed to do first before starting any diet/lifestyle change is get our minds right. With self-doubt or negative thoughts, nothing will change for the better. Your biggest limitation is yourself, so we need to set goals and empowering beliefs.
Nerve Supply: To simply state it, the health of your nervous system is a reflection on the health of your entire body. If your nervous system is lacking or working improperly, there is no way you can ever reach your full potential. Always get your nervous system checked and tuned up by a chiropractor.
Nutrition: This is a big one during our 30 Day Challenge. The “common” American diet is leading us to more sickness and disease now that ever before. Our “food” is filled with junk (pesticides, chemicals, SUGARS) and is not nourishing our bodies. We’re cutting our process sugars, grains/wheat, alcohol, processed crud and we have been focusing on organic produce, grass-fed meats, and healthy fats. If you can’t read something on the food label, don’t eat it… Better yet, your food shouldn’t have a food label.
Incorporate Exercise: Motion is an essential part to life. For our challenge, we are encouraging High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). We’re doing them in the office on Monday and Wednesday nights, and man they are intense… but fun! We’re elevating our workouts by using our “Vibe Plate,” which is used for neuromuscular re-education. These workouts are quick and effective, so there is no excuse to skip them.
Eliminating Toxins: Going back to chemicals, they are found everywhere in our lives. Whether its in our cleaning products, shampoos, makeup, water, food… it’s nearly impossible to avoid them all. But what we are doing is paying attention to the things we can control: making our own cleaners, going organic, using glassware instead of plastic containers. The less chemicals in your life, the better it will be.
This 30 Day Challenge is a great way to kick of 2017 by losing weight, but it’s so much more than weight loss. If you are already at a healthy weight, but still unsatisfied with something in your life, here are some “non-scale goals” to achieve on the 30 Day Challenge:
- Get rid of headaches
- Improved digestion
- Beat your addiction to sugar
- Balance your hormones
- Improved sleep/less fatigue
- No more brain fog
- Improved mood
- No more anxiety
- Skin improvements
- SO MUCH MORE
As you can see, this challenge can be about much more than weight loss. It’s important to keep your body as healthy as possible, it’s the only one you get.
