Healthy habits challenge - End of week two

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Week two's challenge was to take one negative behavior and find a positive solution to it. I chose to correct my habit of leaving my lunch making until the last minute. It worked! I did it all five applicable days last week (read: work days). I stayed within calories every day except Friday when I went a little less than 100 cals over. I'm continuing with that this week

The challenge for week three is to really focus on one habit only and then develop a plan on how you are going make this work for you. emoticon My one habit to work on this week is: resist temptation during times of stress.

Thankfully, stress has been good to me in that I haven't had much but my first reaction when it does happen is to eat junk. I'm going to fight that urge with chewing gum. I figure if I can give up XL double/double by drinking Carnation light and regular coffee then I can do this, too.

Hurrah for healthy habits!

    I have the same problem of waiting until I'm ready to run out the door and grab whatever I can find fast! Thanks so much for sharing your success with it. You gave me something to work on, too. I'm gonna check it out on the motivational section and see if I can get in on it, too. See you there and keep it up, girl!

    Kate, I found this challenge in the motivational section of SP. Coach Nancy is leading this one. Last month, Coach Jen lead the Plateau Buster challenge and I was part of that, too. It's good for me to have something to focus on and these mini-challenges are just perfect.

    So Penny, is this a book you are reading or are you making these up on your own? I am intrigued and would like to "start at the beginning" on my own.

    Focusing on ONE goal per week seems so sensible, and it's working for you! Great job! emoticon
