New Year’s Challenge

6 Weeks, 7 Habits, 1 Better You

(Starts January 19th)

What is the Whole Life Challenge?

The Whole Life Challenge is a 6-week lifestyle journey, dedicated to improving your health, fitness, and overall well-being — one habit at a time.

How it Works

Each day for the duration of the 6-week Challenge, you'll get points for completing each of the 7 Daily Habits.

The 7 Daily Habits work together to create an effect in your life that’s hard to overstate — after a few weeks, you’ll feel rested, energetic, present, strong, healthy (and perhaps even happier).

Even better, you’ll have a base knowledge about health and wellness that will last long after the Challenge ends, giving you the tools you need to build a healthier lifestyle for years to come.

Learn About the Habits


You can play the Whole Life Challenge by yourself or on a team with friends, family or co-workers and you’ll climb the scoreboard as you make progress.

Entering your score is super simple —

you can use the iOS app, Android app, or the WLC website.

The Best Part—
We Don’t expect you to be perfect.

While the Whole Life Challenge provides rules and guidelines for best results, we still want you to experience life. This means you’ll sometimes give up a point or two doing the things you love — and that’s okay. Read the Philosophy of Imperfection.

2 Food Sayings I Hate (And Why “Nourishment” Is a Better Philosophy)

| Nutrition | No Comments
There are two common sayings about health and fitness that I cannot stand: Eat less and move more. Food is fuel. I think these phrases, while not incorrect, belittle the process of becoming healthy. And, as a consequence, these sayings belittle each of us and also our triumphs and challenges when it comes to our nutrition choices. “Food as fuel” is only one part of what food does for us. It provides calories and energy, yes, but it also gives…

Once I make a pot, I have something tasty at the ready and it’s freezeable, too. So if you live on your own, you can package up…

How to Reset Your Life (and Have a Happier Year Than Last Year)

| Self-Improvement | No Comments
Some people are steady-as-they-go types. I’m prone to trying new things. And the power of making my own choices somehow made it all feel less risky — until the day it didn’t. Twice, my husband and I left our jobs and home to spend a year traversing the globe. In 2010, we moved to Colombia and ended up spending four amazing years there. And when we returned to the States, I jumped right back into the flow, working on a…
