The #7daymiracleproject is a 7 day challenge that asks you to commit to 4 things a day, for 7 days. These four things build a personal platform that allows for amazing things to happen in our lives. They include healthy nutrition, exercise, kind acts, and personal focus on each of the 7 life miracles (embrace, connect, create, empower, choose, climb and inspire).

“Kindness for Someone Else”
I took out a random collection of the vegetables in my refrigerator and chopped them up… spinach/organic lettuce, bean sprouts, avocado, tomato, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts. cauliflower… I browned some lean ground turkey, added a handful of finely shredded cheese and a no-oil blueberry dressing. It was amazing. I could eat this everyday!
I took my dogs for a longer walk earlier in the day. This turns into an arm-sculpting workout for me, as one of my pups just stops… about halfway through the walk and refuses to walk anymore. So, I got double the arm workout today!
I bought a bouquet of flowers and gave them to someone, asking them to find someone to give them to to make their day. This was my favorite thing of the day. I loved it so much, I think I will do this more often. It made me feel happy, someone else feel happy, and someone else that they impacted, feel happy. Win-win-win!
MIRACLE 2 – CONNECT
My grandmother is the most special person in the world to me, but I don’t always talk to her as much as I want… sometimes, by the time I think to call her, it’s already past her bedtime. So I made a commitment today to put a reminder in my calendar to call her during a time I know she wouldn’t be busy. I called her and we talked and I promised I’d be up in the next few days to see her. She sounded like she was smiling through the phone. Yay! I love making my gram happy. I need to do this more often. I will put a reminder in my calendar three times a week. What an awesome day!
