12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge: Week 25 Update

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 working on sticking with it.

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:

So I still have a long way to go when it comes to my morning routine, but I’m encouraged at the progress I’m making. And I have good news to share: I went to bed at 10:15 p.m. last night and got up at 5:15 a.m. this morning.

Yay!! Let’s hope this is the start of new good habits for me. 🙂

I didn’t do that great at getting 7.5 hours of sleep every night last week, but I’m determined to keep working on it! I hit my water goals six of the days, exercised four days, ate a salad five of the days, and had dessert twice.

    I only ate dessert twice yesterday 🙂 It is birthday week at our house 3 birthdays in 6 days. My goal is to only have a piece of their cake the day of and stay away from the leftovers. Yesterday though we had cake with the birthday gal at lunch and then took her out after dinner for ice cream. I think I might have to alter my goal just a little.

  • I did get to bed early enough most nights last week, but am still very tired. We decided for our summer schedule to change our alarm clock from 6 am to 7 am since my husband doesn’t have to leave so early in the summer. Hopefully I will figure out how much sleep I need soon – apparently much more than most people.

    I already posted my update on your morning routine post. 🙂 Doing pretty well so far, adding some more exercise and a healthy breakfast to my routine this week.

    My week’s been going really well, I think. Things I’ve been understanding; the system I’m using to read the Bible in a year is very skewed; some days it takes a few minutes to read, other times it can take over 30. I have to adjust that to the days that I work and have less time to read. I’ve also been taking less time to shower and dress, which makes me wonder how much time I’ve been dawdling/stalling in attempts to get more time to myself before my kids interrupt. My husband and I have been taking full advantage of the kids being away, mainly by going to the movie theater, so I’m not hitting my bedtime goal. I think, overall, I’m meeting my goals pretty well.

  • Shelly says:

    I did a lot better this week with limiting my sugar. I’m making good progress on getting a summer morning routine set up. So this past week wasn’t too bad for me.

    It good to hear you were able to get to bed on time and get up a little early. I hope it’s a start of a good routine for you.
