I’m following along with the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge at Money Saving Mom. I started the challenge in January to help keep me motivated to lose weight and help me establish some good healthy habits too.
How the Challenge Works
Each month of the challenge will have an area to focus on, to help improve your health and mine. This week’s challenge is to continue to reduced your sugar intake.
By focusing on one area each month, it should give us time to really get it set as a habit. So it won’t end up being something we just do for one month. I’m hoping I will be able to continue the improvements for a long time.
April’s Focus Area
This month’s focus is on reducing sugar intake. This challenge will probably be the most challenging for me this whole year. I have a terrible sweet tooth so reducing my sugar intake will be hard.
This challenge will be hard for me, especially the first week or two. But I know I felt better and by reducing my sugar intake I will be healthier. I’m committing to reducing my sugar intake for 2 days a week. I know it’s not much but it’s a start.
My Progress for this week
Woo Hoo! I hit my goal for this week. I was able to keep away from the sweets two days this week and it felt so good. Not only that but I also kept up with my exercising. I was also able to fit in my fruits and vegetables too. I was a little short on drinking all of my water this week, but again I was really close. 🙂
I’m really happy with how this week went for me.
How about you? Were you able to reduce the amount of sugar you ate?
