Hope you had a good weekend and a great Monday!
It’s been rainy for the last couple of days around here…makes me want to be lazy…sadly, that hasn’t happened yet. I’m hoping for a chance on Wednesday. 🙂
My challenge to you this week is get yourself a journal (or notebook of some sort) and start writing down what you eat every day. This is piggy backing (probably shouldn’t have used the word “piggy”) on the last two weeks’ challenges: exercising and resting. This is just step number 3 in our quest for better health.
AND find someone you can share the journal with. Someone who can look at it and see what you’ve been up to food-wise. Knowing that someone is going to see what you’re eating makes you a little less likely to scarf down that candy bar. For me, at least, that’s a motivator.
So here’s what we have so far in what is, I guess, a lifestyle change/fitness challenge.
1. Get some exercise 6 days a week.
2. Get some rest during the day and get enough sleep at night.
3. Keep a food journal/diary.
4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
5. Trade unhealthy snacks for healthier, whole food – REAL food – choices.
I had to go to the funeral home tonight and after throwing several outfits on the bed because they have gotten too tight in the last couple of months, I have really gotten motivated to up the exercise ante.
So let’s get to it, shall we?
P.S. Another good thing to do is to take “before” weights and measurements. If you can get your body fat percentage checked, do that, too. And you know I’m a fan of “before” pics.
