12 Months to a Healthier You: April’s Challenge

As I shared here, I am joining Crystal from Money Saving Mom for this 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge.  At the beginning of the month, she’ll introduce the focus area and encourage you to set a small goal for that specific area and she’ll share her goals.  Then, every Friday, she’ll have a check-in post where she’ll encourage you to share your progress & struggles and she’ll share hers, as well. If you want to blog about your progress, she’ll include a link-up at the end of the post so you can share your blog posts on this challenge.

The challenge for January was to exercise regularly by getting active 5 days a week.  I have kept this up through March so yeah for that!  The February challenge was to eat more fruits and veggies.  The March challenge was to drink more water by drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day.  How did I do?

I hit this goal on most days in March.  Lets be honest, this one wasn’t that hard for me.  I drink water for every meal and in between most times anyways, so this goal just required me to be a little more diligent to make sure I was getting what I needed.  It did cause me to think about it more though, which was great.  This month’s challenge, though, will be way harder for me.  Like even harder than eating more fruits and veggies.

The goal for April is to cut back on sugar.  Ugh, I love my sugar…lets be real.  But I am in this for good or bad, and lets be honest, it is good for me and my weight loss goals to cut back.  So, that being said, I intend to only have something sweet once a week and also think more about cutting back on things I eat that contain lots of sugar (think trail mix, cinnamon crunch bagels, and packaged foods).  So, lets do this thing!
