Springing to Action Challenge - Week Six

Saturday, March 30, 2013

This week's challenge to review my nutrition plan is perfect for me right now. I took a good look at the past few weeks and here's what I noticed:
I rarely drink enough water.
I am often at the high end of my fat range.
I am often at or above the high end of my sodium range.
I also have at least one day a week (sometimes two) when I go nuts on candy or chocolate.
I do really well on the days when I stay away from the sweets.
I am always on track with my fiber intake.

Here's what I'm planning to do to improve things:
Set a reminder on my phone so that I drink at least four extra glasses of water per day.
I use a lot of vegan mayonnaise. I'm going to find a recipe and try making my own...and using less of it.
I will start paying close attention to the sodium amounts on labels.
I will make a batch of healthier treats to snack on when my sweet tooth acts up. I found some good recipes for things sweetened with date paste instead of sugar.

The second part of the challenge was also good for me. I needed a reminder to spend some time stretching. I did it every weekday morning this week and it felt great!

Oh, and I finally lost two pounds! Yay!
