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:
Believe it or not, this eating less sugar thing is becoming a HABIT for me… which is something I never thought I’d say. I look forward to eating dessert once a week, but I’m not craving it every day like I used to. That’s a pretty massive shift for me! I’m also noticing that our family as a whole is eating healthier as a result of this challenge.
In other news, I hit my water goals four out of the seven days, exercised four times, and ate a salad at least every day.
