12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 28

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 month’s focus will be on reading more.

I really like to read but can’t always find time in my day to read. The challenge for this month should help me get into the habit of finding time to read each week.

My Goal for July’s Focus Area

I’m sure some of you read quite a bit, much more than myself. If you include all the reading I do, to learn new things on the internet, then I would say I read a lot. But if you are talking about sitting down with my Kindle or a book, that’s a little harder for me to find time to do.

Right now, I try to read one chapter a week in a book I’m working on. I usually have two or three books I’m reading at a time, so getting all the way through one book can take me a little while.

For this month, I’m going to set a goal of reading two chapters a week. I’m doubling my usual reading amount to give me more of a challenge and to help me really think about setting time aside to do some reading.

My Progress for this week

I really made some time for reading this week. I read four chapters, instead of the two I had for a goal. After last week, when I missed my goal, I’m so happy I was able to get a few extra chapters in. If I keep this up, I might finish my books this month. WooHoo!

How did you do on your reading?

  1. Hey Shelly, I love to read and have started using audio books as well so that I can “read” on my commute into work. I haven’t set goals for reading, but one of the things that I haven’t been as consistent on is my Bible/devotional reading. So I think that’s going to be my goal to carve out a set time to read daily no matter what. Maybe I can use the audio in my car too to accomplish this.

    1. That is such a great way to read more Shellylori! I use audio books in our homeschool but have never really thought to get audio books for me. We have a Bible audio book and the kids and myself listen to it at breakfast. It’s such a nice way to start the day.
