Happy New Year, my friends!
If you know me at all, you know that I absolutely love💙 the beginning of a NEW YEAR. Reflecting on what I’ve accomplished over the previous 12 months and SETTING GOALS for the upcoming year📆 are things that light me up!

And while we’re on the subject of light💡…I live in a part of the world where it’s winter⛄ right now. Daylight hours are shorter, and nighttime seems to drag on. But I’ve noticed that things have started to FLIP 🥞.
Since the winter solstice❄️, my fellow Northern Hemisphere Bs and I are enjoying a few more minutes of SUNSHINE every day until June.
And it’s interesting, because the increase in daylight is hardly perceptible each day. We’re gaining more sunshine, but it’s hard to tell right away🤷. Until one day it dawns on us (you know I had to make a “dawn” joke!) that things are getting BRIGHTER AND SUNNIER🌈.
That’s how it goes with your FITNESS JOURNEY, too! You’re working out moderately and consistently and may not notice any improvements right away. “Am I really making any progress📈?” you ask yourself, until one day, you notice that you have🥳!
A super easy way to start – or continue – your fitness journey is with the FREE weekly Mini Challenge. All of your week’s workouts are planned, and you don’t burn any daylight☀️ trying to decide what to do next!
Here’s how the Mini Challenge works:
- Choose a GOAL – weight loss (for weight loss) or body shaping (for maintaining your weight and improving your fitness)
- Follow the WORKOUTS for your goal – if you’re losing weight, each day’s effort should feel very moderate and consistent (because weight loss over 50 is driven by eating the right number of calories consistently); if you’re shaping your body, one day will be an intense push, two days will be very relaxed and the rest of the days should feel mild to moderate. Changing your intensity is what changes your body.
- The BONUS CONTENT is appropriate for either goal.
