This month I was planning on bumping up some of my July goals. But unfortunately I am back to square one with most of those goals. I haven't fallen off the healthy wagon completely - my hubby and I have incorporated some great healthy habits into our routine and we have been continuing to maintain those quite well. It is just my personal goals that have suffered, namely exercise, tracking calories and drinking water. It is too overwhelming for me to try to get back to where I was, so I'm starting small. I'm starting with the water.
I know that as I continue to put energy into SparkPeople and my health goals I will be able to add in the other ones. But for now I'm focusing on getting my 8 glasses a day of water. The past couple of days I have been doing quite well at it, and I think it makes a big difference.
- Drinking water fills me up so I'm less hungry
- I can drink water instead of snacking when I have a craving
- Drinking water instead of juice or pop cuts out calories and sugar
- I feel better when I'm getting enough water
