12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge: Week 23 Check-in

Are you joining us for the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge? If so, it’s time for our weekly check-in to post our progress.

June’s Challenge:

We’re focusing on developing the habit of a better morning routine. I encourage you to create a simple and doable morning routine and to stick with it.

New to this challenge? Read more details on the plan for this year here.

My Morning Routine Challenge for June

I created a new morning routine (see it here) and am blogging daily about how it’s going for me. See Friday’s update on my morning routine here.

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, March’s goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day, April’s goal of cutting back on sugar, and May’s goal of getting at least 7.5 hours of sleep every night.

This Week’s Progress:

I’m making some good headway on my morning routine. And it’s making SUCH a difference!

Also: I slept at least 7.5 hours five nights. I hit my water goals five days, exercised four days, ate a salad five of the days, and had dessert just once. Progress!

  • Thank you for the link-up; I would like to share that from all of the research I have done, not eating a sensible, low-calorie dessert can be just as big an issue as not doing so. By depriving your body of the sweets it craves, it triggers cravings for carbs that are even less ept at helping you. Also, desserts rich in dark chocolate, fructose, Greek yogurt and fruit, or the like reap much bigger cardiovascular benefits that many supplements on the market. I try to have a dessert daily, before seven pm, and I also find that it staves off late night cravings as well. Just my two cents! 🙂

    Now that we are done with homeschooling and trying to get into a summer routine I really needed to adapt my morning routine a little. I did well most of the week. But one day last week I lost the whole morning by getting sidetracked. This week is off to a good start.

  • Maria says:

    This week’s been gone to the wind for the morning routine. The whole week will be crazy since we have VBS which means lots of late nights. I’m setting up goals and things to get me back on track next week.

  • so far I am sticking up with my 6.30 wake up. I am so happy about this. But I plan to do it just for this month while I am working on the project and then go back to my later wake ups, since I have teens and they are out of school.

    We take long walks with my daughter and a dog every evening and I try to visit gym every other day. Today I was super tired from a long day but still went to the gym.
