12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 30

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 met my reading goal for this week and read an extra chapter too. So much better than last week!

I was able to get all my water, fruit and vegetables in this week. I did my exercising too. I did overdo the sweets a little but it was my birthday, so I think that was probably alight. All in all it was a really good week.

Did you fit in some reading time this week?

  1. Yes, I’ve been reading two books at a time and love it. I’m reading so much more this year…when it comes to actually physical books or ebooks…as opposed to blog posts ( 😉 ) than I was last year.

    I’m actually about to start reading three books at once, and for the first time in forever, I’m going to read a fiction book. I’m looking forward to it!

    Great job on getting your reading in last week, Shelly!

    1. I have so many ebooks to read. I love having my Kindle since I can take it with me to read anywhere and if I get bored with one book I can switch to another. I have been loading some of my PDF ebooks onto the Kindle so I can read them too. I hope you enjoy the fiction book you have picked out to read.
