I was telling Freck the other day...you can knock out 3-4 servings of fruit/veggies in a smoothie! Smoothies are usually fruit, but I've seen recipes which include kale, spinach, or some other green to add a little boost of nutrients. You can put whatever you want in a smoothie! That's the beauty! Throw a bunch of stuff in a blender or food processor and VOILA! Half of your freggie servings for the day! Even though I'm a veggie I sometimes have a hard time getting my freggie servings in for the day, so I try to keep the rule that half my plate is veggies, 1/3 is grains, and 1/6 is protein.

You can also go into "track others" and add a fruit/veggie tracker that works the same as the water tracker. It's great! I'd also suggest, even if you're not a vegetarian, to maybe get some veggie cookbooks to get some fun and interesting new recipes to try instead of having boring boiled veggies all the time. emoticon

I was at 15 for yesterday. My low scores were for sleep and freggies. Something to work on. Thanks Willow, this is a neat way to track daily progress.

0-4 Unhealthy Direction
Is everything alright? After all the hard work you've put in to improve your life, it would be a shame to take too many steps backward. If you're having trouble sticking to most of your goals, regroup and think about what may be holding you back. This might be a good opportunity to get some help from the support message boards. Stick with it!



5-9 Veering Off Track
Hey, everyone has off days. But it's not the end of the world. If everything didn't go right for you today, make a plan for improving just a little bit tomorrow. You can make it happen, but it'll take some focus to keep yourself from falling back into old, bad habits. Keep your chin up and keep a positive attitude -- you'll get there.



10-14 On Your Way
Good work. You're probably doing really well in some areas, but may be having some trouble in other areas. Nobody's perfect, and hopefully this gives you a quick look at where you might need to focus tomorrow. Try to stay as consistent as possible and good things will start to happen.




15-19 Healthy
Way to go! You're doing the right things and making good decisions. No matter what the scale says, you're making progress. If you can turn your high scores into habits, there's nothing standing in the way of your ultimate weight loss goals. It's just a matter of time.



20-24 Very Healthy
What a great day! You should be proud of yourself; this is exactly what a healthy lifestyle is all about. Can you tell the difference it makes when you make just a few healthy choices? Whenever you start to feel down or get discouraged, remember today and know that you're on the right path.
