12 Months to a Healthier You: July 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.  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.  The April challenge was to cut back on sugar.  The May challenge was to get more rest.  The June challenge was to create a morning routine.  The July challenge is to read more.

So how I am doing with all of these?  Truthfully, not great.  I was doing great even through this summer in NYC, but since finding out I am pregnant, being so tired, and coming back to a little more lax everyday schedule, it has been hard to get in the groove.  I am hoping that changes in the next few weeks.  I still really want to do this challenge and cultivate a habit of being healthier, having good habits, and having more self-discipline so I am determined not to qive up yet.  I have read more this month so I am encouraged by that and I have gotten more rest (but because of being pregnant and having to, not because I am being self-disciplined!).  Anyhow, thanks for encouraging me to stick with it and feel free to ask me how its going.

And if you are doing this challenge too, I would love to hear how you are doing with it all!
