Keeping You Motivated

We are six days into the Whole Life Challenge, Fall 2013!  It’s in full swing and on like Donkey Kong.  You’re posting pictures of compliant dishes, searching for good places to eat out, and of course, rocking the workouts here at Merge.  But how can you prevent that midpoint slide, when the initial excitement has worn off and you just can’t eat anymore eggs for breakfast?

I know how it goes…you have a pretty crummy day around day 34…you forget to log your score…you don’t even remember what the lifestyle challenge is…and you’re pretty much one step away from just throwing in the towel and making a run to In ‘N’ Out Burger.  That’s no fun.

To prevent the above scenario, we’re planning weekly outings and events to keep you engaged with your fellow Whole Lifers.  What better way to see this thing through for the entire eight weeks than to hang out with like minded peeps and take advantage of the community support here?  

Our first weekly outing is Lobsterfest, this Saturday, September 14th at the Port of Call Los Angeles.  Justin is the Event Captain and has the information here.  Read up and I hope you can join us.

Yes, Kat.  You just thrustered that weight.  Atta way!
