Are you joining us for the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge? If so, it’s the weekend and guess what that means? It’s time for our weekly check-in to post our progress.
We’re focusing on developing the habit of cutting back on sugar. I encourage you to set a simple and doable goal for eating less sugar and to stick with it.

My Goals for Cutting Back on Sugar During April
My goal for April is to cut back on sugar — which is hard for a girl like me who has a strong sweet tooth! I’m going to make it my goal to only eat dessert once a week and to cut back on the sugar I use in my coffee on a daily basis, too.
I’m also hoping to keep up with January’s habit of exercising at least 4-5 times every week, February’s goal of eating a big salad at least six times a week, and March’s goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
This Week’s Progress:
Okay, so I didn’t do so hot this week… so much for saying it was becoming a habit last week. 🙁 I had dessert when we were with friends, then again at Easter, and then I had some ice cream cake today, too. I did hit my water goals five out of the seven days, and ate a salad every day, but I only exercised two times.
I know, I kind of blew it. 🙁 But I decided I’m just going to give myself a pass this week since we were finishing up packing our house for our move next week and we had a lot of extra get-togethers and projects to do because of that. So it was a rather busy week and, sometimes, on weeks like this week, you’ve just got to give yourself grace. 🙂
