Healthy Habbits

There are all sorts of things you can do to take care of your body and make yourself a healthier person. I just wanted to try and come up with what I felt like were the basics. Nothing to extreme or difficult, just a few things each day that if I did them would make me healthier. And hopefully by the end of the 8 weeks they have become habbits.

Since there are just a few days left I thought I would chime in one last time. Hopefully everyone has gotten into some good habits! Thanks for doing my challenge with me, it sure helps to keep me motivated, and keeps me eating the way I know I should any way but sometimes lack the discipline to do so. Dad you did Awesome! Way to stay strong tot he end. And Ellie, I am so impressed by you, way to go! Just to give you a heads up, when the challenge ends, you can no longer enter points or chat or see people's scores (it kind of just ends abruptly, we are going to fix that in the future) So don't be alarmed when there is no evidence that this ever even happened...:) Hope you all had fun! I'm up for another one anytime so let me know if your interested!

Read my previous post so this one makes sense, but in a nutshell I am changing the water requirement for my kids to 20 ounces per day. I just wanted to quickly add that this will go for Brooklynn as well. Also, I wanted to let Ellie drink less too, just where she is in school all day also 64 ounces might be a bit much for her, so I was thinking that she could cut hersin half and only drink 32 ounces per day. Hopefully everyone else is fine with 64 ounces each day, but if there are any questions or concerns let me know! If not, have fun, and good luck with week 5 :)

Hey Everyone! Hopefully your all having fun! Just a little FYI I am going to change the water requirements for my kids. Both of their teachers asked me not to have them drink so much because they are having to go to the bathroom way to much during school :) So I am only going to have them drink 20 ounces each day.

Wow! Our little family definitely fell of the wagon this week! We had Matt's B-day, friends in town, and conference, and use all of those as an excuse to eat a Ton of JUNK! We are all determined to do better next week :) (but I have a feeling Easter is going to take it's toll too...)

Hopefully everyone's first week was good! I loved mine! This is the first week I have limited the amount of desserts I have eaten in a long time, and I felt great (except for my free day when i binged...) Just wanted to give a little shout out to Everyone...My Mom and Dad who drank 64 ounces of water by 2pm yesterday so they could start a fast and still get their points! The 3 kiddo's doing this challenge, Aspen, Chase, and Brooklynn. these three are constantly faced with treats at school, and in all their extra curicular activities, so way to stay strong! Ellie, who is 12, I am impressed! I definitely didn't have the dicipline to do anything like this when I was 12, and your first week was AWESOME, keep it up! My good friend Merisa who wasn't feeling good, but still let me drag her to the gym anyway. Miss Marci, who had a little hiccup with Golds gym Day care,(darn them!:) but didn't let that stop her! Holli, and her glorious work outs on the beach! And my poor sick hubby who literally spent 2 days in bed due to strep, Way to go everyone you did so good! I hope your having fun! Keep entering your points, and let me know if you have any questions! Good luck with week 2!!

I have gotten a weak start! Floss teeth of all things has gotten me twice! Also, I chose golf over the gym yesterday. Does swingin clubs for 4 hours count as exercise? ;)

Strep hit our house hard and fast this week! Luckily I didn't get it, but me and Lola are the only ones who didn't. CHase and Aspen both got it though so I kept them home from school today and told them to lay in their beds and read. I found them up there doing wall sits, sit ups and push ups so they wouldn't have to doc a point. Pretty impressive right!

I tested postive with Step and spent the entire day asleep, yesterday. So, I didn't exercise, floss, or eat fruits and vegetables. Weak!

Girl scout cookies are a worth it though right :) You might just have to hide them though to make it through the rest of the week. Good Luck Miss! You can do it :)

It was a bad day to get our Girl Scout cookies. I am using my free be today cause we had friends over and they were bringing dessert. So I ate a cookie too since I knew I would lose the point today. Oh well. Looks like I am going to have to be dedicated the rest of the week.

My kids both waited until the end of the day to drink most of their water. I have a feeling they are going to be up a lot in the night, or that I might be washing sheets tomorrow :( Oops! I'll have to pack them a water bottle to take to school with them tomorrow so they candrink more during the day. By the way, I am cutting the water in half for them so instead of having them drink 64ounces I am only having them drink 32ounces. Just because their bodies are so tiny, I feel like 64 ounces would be way to much for them! Hope everyone is okay with that :)
