Use the Challenge Calendar to Increase Activity and Healthy Eating

July calendar encourages you to track your steps

Join The Rapides Foundation's Get Healthy Cenla Challenge, a daily challenge designed to encourage people to improve their nutrition and physical activity. Our goal is for everyone to eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day, and get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day, five days a week. 

The July Challenge Calendar encourages participants to track and record their steps throughout the month. The calendar offers daily tips and challenges designed to increase physical activity and healthy eating. You can also explore The Rapides Foundation's Interactive Map of Healthy Activities to find playgrounds, walking trails, fitness stations, and farmers markets near you. Click here to download the July 2019 Challenge Calendar.

In addition to our calendar, we have even more resources to help you meet your health goals. You can click here to see videos about how to eat healthiersimple exercises you can add to your workout, and tips for proper walking techniques on our YouTube channel. Links to all of these resources are also in the "More Links" section below this article. 

The challenges on our calendar are prepared by trained staff in our CMAP Healthy Lifestyle Program. They are designed to be simple and realistic. If you find the challenges too easy, try doubling the amounts. If they are too hard, don't worry. Do what you can, and have fun!

The Get Healthy Cenla Challenge is a component of the Healthy Lifestyle Program. This is a program aimed at fighting obesity in Central Louisiana by providing Cenla residents with resources to lead healthy lifestyles. Talk to your doctor for a referral to the Healthy Lifestyle Program, or call 318-767-3019 for more information. The Healthy Lifestyle Program is funded by The Rapides Foundation and administered by CMAP. Click here to learn more about the Healthy Lifestyle Program.
