12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 43

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.

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 was able to stay away from chocolate fairly well. It’s been 3 days in a row without chocolate. We do have some in the house but I have refrained from eating it. Today, if I make it will be four. Woohoo!

I’ve been getting to bed on time this past week. I’ve been lax on drinking my water. I kept up on exercising and eating my fruits and vegetables though.

How did you do this week? Did you make any new changes this month?
