Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Welcome to all the participants of the April 30 Day challenge!

I have a great post to get us all started!
Still waiting for the last few nutritional commitments so that I can post them, but in the meanwhile this is a great post to get us started!

YOUR FIRST assignment is to look at the list on the post and identify which you already do and pick ONE that you want to try to implement this challenge! Easy as pie, or should I say, easy as a smile. ( no pie on this Challenge, unless it is grain free...for me anyways!)

here is the link.

If you are on social media, please share! thanks!

GO TO IT!!! and remember to REPORT BACK TO ME!

    I do much of what is on the list. But I will say that - You have 1-2 servings of protein with each meal - to be my biggest challenge.

    I'm back at Spark after some time off. many changes in my life in the past two years, and they're all good, but now it's time for me to take better care of me. My goal this month is to exercise 3x a week and get a handle on eating more healthy. baby steps..

    Today, I ate w/in range, stayed away from white carbs and sugar, and did ST for my exercise.

    I emailed regarding the healthy habits post, and I already do 4 things on the list all the time, and a number of things most of the time...not bad.
    For this challenge, I'm going to adhere to adding more servings of veggies to each meal, so I'm eating 2-3 each meal, and I'm going to try not to eat w/in 4 hrs of bedtime. My sched. is so weird, that may be really tricky, but I'm going to try.

    Yay emoticon and Day 2!!!

    Most on the list are already defaults for me, so I need to pick one that would be a challenge :)
    Knowing what foods I am sensitive to.
    I have been testing on The Plan since mid-January and I will keep at it!
    My upcoming trip will be a challenge all in itself..

    So I'm cutting out the white carbs. My new habit - well, I already do push for at least 15 a day. The new habit I would like is to make it to the gym 2 times a week. This is more than just going to workout. This is also getting past the guilt of leaving hubby at home with all the kids. I need to get over the guilt, as it is self created. Of course hubby can handle it for 30 to 45 minutes. After all, I handle it all day long, every day!
    So maybe the habit is working on my guilt, rather than working on getting to the gym!!
