12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 44

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

Cutting Back on Caffeine for October

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

I did well in the beginning of the week. I didn’t have any chocolate in the house. So, it was easy to avoid it. But then on Wednesday night, I went out to get groceries and bought two bags of Halloween candy. I didn’t open any of it until Thursday afternoon. I ate some chocolate on Thursday and today. But still not bad at all for keeping my caffeine consumption down this week.

I drank all of my water. Got to bed on time all nights, except one night this week. I ate my fruits and vegetables and exercised each morning. I don’t know about you but this time of year is hard for me. When it gets darker out earlier I get so tired. I hoping after the time change I can get adjusted again.

How did you do this week?

  1. It sounds like you did a pretty good job staying away from too much chocolate, Shelly!

    As for the time change, I actually welcome it, because I love the extra hour I get on that one day of the year. 😉

    I hope you can get adjusted to the change soon and your energy level goes up!
