The #Last90Days Challenge

The #Last90Days Challenge starts on Monday! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I have a huge girl crush on Rachel Hollis. I’ve followed her for several years, but it wasn’t until reading her book (Girl, Wash Your Face), listening to her podcasts (Rise, Rise Together), and watching her live streams (Facebook, Instagram, M-F 8am CT), that I’ve reached ultimate fan-girl, drinking the koolaid status.

Rachel Hollis is a #1 NYT best-selling author, motivational speaker and podcast host. She is an adamant believer in that all people are made for more. She believes that we can all dig deeper and strive to be the best versions of ourselves.

What is the #Last90Days Challenge?

Rachel’s annual “Last 90 Days” Challenge kicks off tomorrow, and encourages you to live out your last 90 days of 2018 as strong as you’d likely live out your first 30 days in 2019. What if instead of setting new years resolutions, we got those healthy habits established now? What if instead of a downhill slide into 2019, we decided to ramp up for it?

What Are the Rules?

The #Last90Days Challenge encourages you to adopt five healthy habits over the course of 90 days. Each and every day, you are challenged to do the following:

  1. Get up one hour earlier every day. Spend this hour as a treat to yourself, and do something for you. Squeeze in some exercise, meditation, or enjoy quiet time with coffee and a book.
  2. Drink half your body weight in water (oz). For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 oz of water each day.  Staying hydrated promotes cardiovascular health, healthy muscles and joints, and keeps your skin and body cleansed. Imagine if you commit to this for 90 days?
  3. Move your body for at least 30 minutes. Get up and move. Everyday. Whether it’s a walk with your dog or a full blown Crossfit wod – do it. Even if it’s a rest day, lace up your shoes and go for a brisk walk. Your body will thank you.
  4. Eliminate a food category you know you shouldn’t be eating for 30 days. You can either repeat this three times with three different categories, or eliminate the same category the entire time (i.e alcohol, dairy, processed foods, fried foods, soda). For October, James and I have decided to give up dairy. We’ll see how that first month goes, then either establish a new category or continue on with it.
  5. Write down 10 things you’re grateful for. At the end of each day, write down 10 things you were grateful for. Keep this journal and try to find new things to appreciate each and every day. At the end of 90 days, imagine how good it will feel to flip back through this?
