12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge, Week 50

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. The weight loss hasn’t been realized yet, but I do have some healthy habits established!

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 simplifying and saying no.

Saying no, can be really difficult. Saying no, can disappoint people you love or friends you really care about. Saying no, to the less important things, will allow you to have time for the things that are most important to you.


My Goal for December’s Focus Area

Saying no to good things is hard, but must be done to have time for the great things.

I used to have a really hard time saying no to things. I thought people wouldn’t like me, if I said no. People would be offended, if I said no. And sometimes both of those things happen. But when I spend time doing things that are really not that important. Then I may not have time for the things I love.

For this month, I’m going to work on simplifying my days and saying no to things, that just aren’t that important to my family and myself. During the holiday season there is just so many things to do. By keeping my focus on what is most important each week and saying no to the things that just don’t fit, I’m hoping to have a nice and relaxed December.

Will you be joining in the challenge for this month? 

My Progress for this week

This week I simplified my week by staying home. It’s amazing at how much more you can get done by just staying home. We made some good progress on handmade gifts. I made a few candy recipes and we were able to get the house clean too. All because I said no to going out this week.

I was able to keep up with my exercising, drinking water and eating my fruits and vegetables. I did do poorly at cutting back on sweets, since I needed to sample the candy I made for gifts. I was also able to get to bed on time each night. My husband wasn’t feeling well so getting to bed on time was easy.

How did your week go as far as you making healthy choices? What did you say no to this week?

    1. Sandra, I have trouble when I get on Facebook too. It can be a real time suck if you let it. Good for you in finding a way to get more done with such a simple change. I’ll have to try it too.
