the 20 in 30 monthly goal challenge recap & ideas |

If you saw my post a couple days ago, I introduced the concept of making monthly goals that you can accomplish 20 out of the 30 (or 31 or 28 or 29) days of the month.

Some of you may be still going strong on your new year's resolutions, while others may have already fallen off the wagon just 1 month into the year. The great thing is that whatever group you fall into, this plan can work for you.

I wanted to recap all the challenges I have done since December of 2014. This should give you lots of ideas of what you could do for a 20 in 30 challenge.

December 2014 - Green Smoothies
January 2015 - Green Salads
February 2015 - Liver Support - no alcohol; turmeric, milk thistle, and dandelion
March 2015 - Smoothie Bowls
April 2015 - Yoga
May 2015 - Simple Healthy Toast
June 2015 - 10,000 steps
July 2015 - 7 cups of fruits & veggies per day
August 2015 - Wheat free/gluten free
September 2015 - Wake up at 6am and do core
October 2015 - No sugar
November 2015 - Water
December 2015 - Exercise
January 2016 - No wine

Hope this will inspire you to do your own 20 in 30 challenge this month and all year!

The 20 in 30 monthly goal challenge will turn your New Year's resolutions into whole year resolutions.

It is already February! I am sure many of you have made resolutions and at this point many of you might have already broke your resolutions. It happens, apparently ALL. THE. TIME. If you look at any article talking about resolutions you will see something like an 8% success rate. Not the best.

So last year I changed things up. Instead of doing my usual 10-15 resolutions (yes, I love making resolutions) I decided to pick one thing a month and focus on that. I chose a healthy habit that I would do 20 out of the 30 days of the month. It worked really well. Although there are other things I did during the year to stay healthy, I stuck with one thing a month that I would be sure to do each month to be successful.

I think this is such a great plan because even if you have a bad month, you can continually make goals all throughout the year to get back on track. And with the 20 in 30 plan, you have a few days built in (think weekends) where you can "cheat" and still make your goal.

How to do the 20 in 30 plan

Pick ONE healthy thing you would like to do for the month.
Share, share share! With friends and family, on instagram, on facebook, in the suzyandco facebook group. When you make a goal public and share you are more likely to do it.

That's it! It really is not that hard, but making healthy goals into habits takes a bit of time, consistency and drive.
