I created this 6 Day Nutrition & Fitness Challenge for those who are having trouble finding the motivation to get started.
To get started with reasonable and sustainable healthy habits.
To create momentum for healthy behavior change.
The habits in this challenge are meant to be and become sustainable habits – ones that can last over the long term (think years). This can and should lead to significant changes to one’s health and well-being if you keep doing them.
Now you may be thinking... It's only 6 days long. What could possibly happen in 6 days bro?
Well a lot, actually. You see, most people don't even finish the programs they start let alone begin one.
6 days is all I'm asking for to create the initial momentum necessary to get going.
Most longer challenges (30 day elimination diet, 4-8 week boot camps, etc.) are pretty intense, restrictive, and unreasonable. Those that do finish it see results but they are usually temporary as they fall victim to the habits they were doing before.
The problem is these programs/challenges ask you to change TOO MUCH and EVERYTHING all at ONCE. This is OVERWHELMING and tough. To get anything to stick and become a habit, you need to practice and "learn how to fish."
Skill takes time. Skill requires practice. Skill needs consistency.
Here's a little motivation for you
from Georgie Fear.
You didn't fall off the wagon. THERE IS NO WAGON. No track, no road, you're not "out of the groove" or "off the rails", "up a creek" or any other metaphor we use to say we're struggling.
That’s right! Screw the damn wagon.
That being said, just start where you are. Start now.
Try the 6 Day Nutrition & Fitness Challenge. Are you ready for it?

Your 6 Day Game Plan
After you download your Habit Tracker and Nutrition Guide, scroll below and check out Day 1.
Each additional day has you stacking a habit on top of the previous one. Only do this if you feel confident you can handle it. Otherwise just focus on that day's habit.
*As an example for Day 3... You will be attempting to eat 3 solid meals a day without snacking in between. Each meal you will attempt to eat slowly until you are about 80% full. Lastly, you will attempt to include a vegetable of some sort at each meal or at as many as you can.
Stacking isn't always ideal since we know that working on more than ONE NEW THING at a time is REALLY CHALLENGING but that's why it's a 6 DAY CHALLENGE!
Plus if you want to slow it down, I've got a private Facebook group for that reason. Check it out at the end of the blog.
Are you ready!?
Here is your day-by-day game plan.

These 8 habits make up the CORE HABITS of Strength Unchained. We practice and strive to work on these habits as often as possible.
