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
While I kept up with my drinking of water, easy to do when it’s hot out. I did very well at eating my fruits and vegetables, another easy task since we have lots of lettuce coming from our garden. I even got in my exercising this week.
But you know what I didn’t do? I didn’t make any time to read this week. I was just let myself get too busy with our bathroom remodel and it fell by the wayside.
So after such a good week last week, this week I bombed. I’m hoping to do better this week and squeeze in a little reading time.
How did you do on your reading?
