“Following the challenge guidelines gave me the excuse I needed to form healthy habits over the 30day challenge – more sleep, eating breakfast, balanced nutrition, replacing drive-thru with packed lunches, daily exercise, reduced soda/alcohol consumption.  Very happy with the results!  Looking forward to continuing to use some of the new grocery shopping and cooking improvements I discovered along the way.”
