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!
