We’re now in the third month of the ReNu Challenge and you’ve probably noticed that some challenges repeat each month: Move Your Body, Drink Water, Eat Veggies, Eat Fruits. These are fundamental parts of a healthy lifestyle and even the most disciplined of us needs reinforcing of these actions from time-to-time. For those of us that don’t have a habit of these actions yet, I know it will take a while before they become regular practices for you. That’s why I repeat them in each challenge. In order to repeat them, I could only have 3 new challenges each month. This month I got some great inspiration for new challenges from Connie Otice, NuSpecies’ Executive Manager, and I wanted to include as many of them as possible. I also thought that if you’ve been following this challenge each month, that maybe you’re ready to try two actions in one day as an extra challenge. That’s why this week you’ll have two days with double actions. Today is the first! I thought Move Your Body and Drink More Water went well together since it’s common practice to have water with you when you exercise, so that’s a good way to get an extra glass of water in today. You can refer back to my suggestions for movement or drinking more water by reading the original posts. Want to get daily text reminders during our ReNu Challenges?

Many of us spend years of our lives living with an all-or-nothing mentality, especially when it comes to taking care of our health and our bodies. We’re either eating the “perfect” diet, following our NuSpecies programs, and exercising every day OR we act destructively, eating anything that is in front of us, not taking our NuSpecies, and not exercising, all while feeling guilty, ashamed, unhappy and unfulfilled. NuSpecies ReNu Challenge is a monthly reminder from Jillian, NuSpecies Co-Founder, that everyday is a new opportunity to make a better choice for your health. Every meal is a new opportunity. Every interaction today is a new opportunity. Just because you ate a bacon, egg and cheese for breakfast, doesn’t mean you can’t have a salad for lunch. Just because someone else isn’t being a decent human, doesn’t mean you should go down to their level. Life isn’t black and white and living on the all-or-nothing roller coaster isn’t sustainable. Each day during the week of NuSpecies’ ReNu Challenge, Jillian will challenge you to take one simple action that protects your health.
