Congrats to Courtney Sims for winning the Running Bonus challenge draw for the Whole Life Challenge.  Come down to pick up your prize of 2 weeks free Yoga at Synergy Health and Wellness!

What an extraordinary 7 weeks you’ve had. You’ve learned a LOT about yourself, how you operate, what stops you, and most of all, how to get results out of being ACCOUNTABLE for them day in and day out.

What if you could take all that you’ve learned and apply it to your life afte the challenge is over? What if you could use the structure of community, accountability, and a GAME to make other important things in your life happen?

Your weekly challenge for Week 8 is to create 3 goals to be achieved by this time next year.

What does that mean?

  • Goals can be in any area: Fitness, personal life, professional life, health, food, etc
  • Goals must satisfy the SMART criteria:
    • Specific – They must specify what will be achieved, with whom, where, etc.
    • Measurable – Concrete criteria (like real numbers) for measuring progress and completion
    • Actionable – You must be able to take actions to move them forward
    • Realistic – They must be achievable BY YOU
    • Timely – They must have a BY WHEN date
  • Each goal must have at least one action that you can take immediately to start it moving forward
  • You may use your coach or fellow participants to evaluate your goals by the SMART criteria
  • You must post your goals in the weekly challenge forum to give yourself credit for them.
  • You must complete the goals by Friday. NEXT FRIDAY 11/9 WILL BE THE DAY YOU REPORT THIS BONUS CHALLENGE.
