20 Week “Basal Evolution Challenge”…Making healthy “practices” a “lifestyle”

As the sun sets…putting this day to rest…beautiful, vibrant colors emerge…reflecting a hope for the wonderful things to come.

What?

A 20 week “Basal Evolution Challenge” with weekly practice ideas to begin evolving into a healthier, cleaner life. 

Why?

I have recently discovered a new passion for health.

It is a deep, unstoppable desire to learn and experience new, healthier ways of living.

It is an ever evolving journey…in all aspects of life.

When I began reading and learning about all of the “health stuff,” I felt overwhelmed, lost, and confused. I felt as if there was an abundance of information available, but it was all scattered in multiple books, websites, etc. It was hard to come by one source…full of information…full of ways… to carry out transformative health ideas.

As we all know, time is precious. Sometimes it is easier to grab a meal from McDonalds than it is to learn about the ingredients.

Sometimes it is easier to “not know” than to truly “know.”

So I decided to slowly research the information, break it down, and record it… post by post…for me..and whoever else is listening/reading/watching.

To become aware of the decisions out there.

To begin my Basal Evolution.

To slowly evolve into a healthier lifestyle… together…in community. The accountability of community makes a huge difference in carrying out new practices.

What if we made time for one or two simple practices a week? Then, once practiced, your lifestyle can evolve.  It will then become easier to make the “practice” a “lifestyle.”

20 weeks of practicing a healthier, cleaner lifestyle… ironing out the kinks, getting the questions answered, and evolving into a healthier you.

The best part?

You can pick and choose what you want to participate in! No strings attached. And if you participate in a “challenge” and don’t like it? Throw it out the window and never do it again!

The beauty of it all is in the journey of self-discovery. Do what works for you and your family.

When?

The first week of the challenge starts today (Monday, August 20th)!

The last week of the challenge is the first week of the New Year…the perfect way to start 2013. The challenge will officially end on Monday, January 7th.

How? 

The fun part.

The challenge of the week will be posted on this blog (and Basal Evolution facebook page) every Monday.  Feel free to pick and choose whichever challenges sound appealing to you. Listed in the post will be a description of the challenge and the reasoning behind it.

There are 2 ways to participate. A is the easiest. Pick and choose as you go. B is the path to the prize.

A) Read the post and put the suggested practice into action! Pick the ones you want to use and ignore the ones you don’t!

If you would like to participate for the “final prize” you will need to start racking up the points through your use of…

“likes. shares. posts” 

B) 1.”like” (+1) the “Basal Challenge” of the week on facebook to encourage others to try it as well.

2. “share” (+1) the “Basal Challenge” of the week on facebook to encourage others to try it as well.

3. post a picture (+1)  and a  few words (+1) about your “challenge” experience (on facebook). For example, if the challenge was to “cook more vegetables for dinner this week,” a picture of your dinner plate that has “more vegetables” and a brief summary would count as +2! Individually, a picture or a few words is +1 a piece. You CAN post multiple pictures and/or descriptions during the week (i.e. one weekly challenge can earn you more than 4 points if you post multiple pictures for one challenge. Be sure to relate each picture to the challenge in some way).

If you don’t want to post on facebook, an email with a few words about the challenge (to basalevolution@gmail.com) will be fine and count (+1), as well!

Option B confirms that you participated in the challenge and helps spread the news to others.

The person that likedshared, and posted the most challenges…and ultimately has the most points… will win “the prize!”

(“The Prize” is still in the works…it will for sure include an awesome “basal evolution” t-shirt. I  have also received numerous donations from awesome, whole, fresh, organic companies! “The Prize” will consist of these products and be revealed in it’s entirety in the next two weeks.)

The winner of the challenge will be announced on Monday, January 7th.

Summary of options:

A) Do and go as you please!

B) Rack up the points! “Like” and “Share” the Weekly Challenge…and post a picture (+2) of your “Basal Challenge” proof… once a week. That is it! Just one time a week- for a total of 20 pictures!

What are the highest points possible?

If you share, like, and post a picture, and description for each challenge, you can earn up to 80 points. However, you can also post multiple pictures and descriptions, that can earn you an unlimited amount of points. It is all up to you!

When is the latest that I can like.share.post?

Never! But if you are in the challenge for “the prize”, you need to like.share.post. before I post the next week’s challenge (so you have one week)!

Who will keep track of my points?

I will!

Please let me know if you have any questions!!  May the biggest “evolver” win 🙂

Cheers and happy evolving!
