Healthy Habits Challenge - End of Week One

Monday, May 10, 2010

Last week's challenge was to choose healthy goals for this month. I picked:
1) no more hitting the snooze button - it just gives me a broken sleep resulting in crankiness.
2) no "away" coffee. I figured my Tim Horton's habit is equal to 8400 calories a month. I don't need that. I'll just have coffee at home with light hot chocolate mixed in if I need a fix - it's only 45 cals.

I made it through week one meeting BOTH of my goals!!

This week's challenge is to take one negative behavior and find a positive solution to it.
~ ok, I can do this ~ I have a really bad habit of leaving making my lunches until the very last second in the morning. This leads to throwing "whatever" into my lunch kit. Starting tonight, I'm going to put everything together the night before. Not only will this ensure that I make healthier choices BUT it'll also give me more "relax" time in the morning.

    The lunch thing is awesome...did that when my kids were growing up and it helped getting them the nutrious meals they needed. I try to track everything I want to eat the night before and try sticking to it and that seems to be helping me...planning ahead...as for the little goals, you are doing fantastic...week two should be a breeze! emoticon

    Great work on your goals! I love them - simple, specific to you and your needs and habits, and very obtainable. You are making me think about some simple changes I can and ought to make myself!
