12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 21 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. I can’t believe we are almost through the month of May. This year is really flying by fast.

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.

Getting rest is so important, that's why this month's challenge is to get more rest.

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.

My goal for this month will be to be in bed by 10:30 each night. That should ensure I get enough rest each night.

My Progress for this week

This week I hit my goal. I was in bed by 10:30 each night. I didn’t fall asleep right away but at least I made it to bed on time which was an improvement from last week.

I was able to keep up with my exercising getting in all 5 days. I ate my fruits and vegetables each day too. The sugar was a little tricky since I made a new dessert recipe and ate way to much of it. But I did get all my water in for the second week in a row.


How did you do on your fitness goals for this week?

  1. It sounds like you’ve been doing a great job overall, Shelly! I haven’t been getting to bed early, but I have been working on it more lately. My goal is to be in bed around 11:30pm, and I need to try harder to make that happen.

    Good for you for getting in your fruits, vegetables, and water. I know it’s not easy, but by sharing, you’re inspiring others. I especially struggle with drinking enough water, but this year, I’m made a good amount of progress in that area.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    1. Thanks Sandra! Great job on improving your water intake!

      I’ve been really happy with my progress lately with getting enough water. It is really a struggle for me, but I’m making progress.

      I hope you had a great weekend!
