HEAVENLY TREATS

JUMP-START

 

Sometimes we just need a little nudge in the right direction – a jump-start, and that can apply to just about anything in life can’t it?

I believe Epicurious is on to something here –  Doable Challenges:   Together, taking on one little change at a time, we’ll be on the path to our more energetic and healthy selves!

Just one change each month – I can do that, and so can you!  So I’m “throwing down the gauntlet” , inviting (and challenging) you to join me on this monthly adventure!  Goin’ it alone is no fun, and as Tecumseh, a Shawnee Indian chief once said:  ”A single twig breaks easily, but a bundle of twigs is strong”.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  • I’ll provide links to Epi’s challenge each month. Choose a recipe from their suggestions or one of your own that follow the theme of that month for your post.
  • You will also receive a link code each month to connect your blog to the hop.
  • Our first post is scheduled for Friday, February 1st – 12:00 p.m. CST (the link will open at midnight on 2/1)  Subsequent months we will publish our posts on the LAST Friday of each month but being short on time this go round I wanted to give everyone an extra day.   If you can’t make this timeline, you can post up until 12:00 p.m. the following Monday if necessary (we’re flexible!).  Be sure to share any ideas or suggestions that have helped you – we’re in this together for support and encouragement!
  • Please add a link in your post back to this post (not my blog’s home page) so that more people might be able to join us!
  • Don’t forget to grab your blog hop code located below, and add it to the end of your post (you must be in HTML mode for it to work).
  • You can jump in at any time, and don’t feel like you have to commit to every month.  Post when you can if every month isn’t doable for you.
  • Ask your blogging friends to join us – the more the merrier!

 

THIS MONTH’S CHALLENGE:  Eat Breakfast!

Are you a breakfast skipper?  It’s time to rethink that…especially if you’re trying to lose weight.   Hard to believe I know, but studies show folks who eat breakfast weigh less than those who skip it.    Not only that, breakfast means to break the fast – literally.  You haven’t eaten since the night before, your blood sugar is low, and you need some fuel (aka glucose) in your tank to perform your best every day.

Below are your codes for our first blog hop. Copy and paste them at the end of your post (you must be in HTML  mode for this to work).

Remember:  

  • Publish your post on Friday, February 1 by 12:00 p.m. CST (the link will be active beginning at midnight on 2/1).
  • Don’t forget to add your photo to the links.
  • The link will be open until Monday, February 4 at 12:00 p.m. CST in the event you can’t make the 2/1 timeline.

Can’t wait to see what delicious breakfast recipes you come up with!  Have Fun!
