12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 18 Update

A healthier You for 2014

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 is the first of the month and a new challenge is starting.

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.

May’s Focus Area

This month’s focus area will be on getting more sleep. If you are like me, sometimes you might find it hard to stick to a sleeping schedule. Some nights I get to bed on time, others it’s a late night, all leading to a poor sleep pattern for me. But this month is the time to change all of that and get on a regular sleep schedule.

I know I need at least 7 hours of sleep a night. To function well, I just have to get my sleep. So, my goal for this month will be to get to bed by 10:30 each night. I try to hit that time each night, but lately I’ve been staying up much later. I’m hoping to get back to a more reasonable bedtime this month.

My Progress for this week

This week was a good week for getting to bed on time. I hit my bedtime each day this past week. Although it was hot a few nights this week and I didn’t sleep all that well, at least I made it to bed on time.

I also exercised 5 times this week, ate my fruits and vegetables and got most of my water in. I also didn’t overload on sweets, so all in all it was a great week.

How did you do? Did you get more rest?
