12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 41

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 cutting back on caffeine.

This challenge should be fairly easy for me. I don’t consume much caffeine at all, so cutting back a little more should be fairly easy.

My Goal for October’s Focus Area

October's Focus Area, Cutting Back on Caffeine

Are you ready to cut back on some caffeine with me this month? I’ll tell you a secret, I don’t drink coffee at all. I don’t drink any tea with caffeine either. I love the smell of coffee it just something about the taste of it, that just repels me.

So this month’s focus area should be fairly easy for me. I think the only food or drink I consume with caffeine is soda on rare occasions and chocolate. I’m going to limit my chocolate intake.

Maybe this will be a little harder than I think. I don’t think I’ll totally give up chocolate for the month but I’ll do my best. After all, it’s October and all that Halloween candy will be calling my name.

My Progress for this week

This week I picked up some chocolate at the store. I know I should have left it at the store but I purchased it. So I had a little chocolate this week but not too much. I did better with it than I would have, so I’m going to call it a win. 🙂

I didn’t get all my exercising in this week, but I did do some. I ate my fruits and veggies. After having veggies coming from our garden all summer long, I’m back to purchasing more at the store. I was able to get enough sleep this week and did well on my water intake. So not too bad of a week at all.

How did you do on cutting back a little on caffeine?
