45 Day Healthy Living Challenge

So I need some motivation to get myself back on track so what better to do that than a challenge! So I'm announcing 

It's simple...6 weeks of making better choices! Here is what the challenge entails:
  • Get moving! Get at least 30 minutes of exercise 5-7 days a week. 
    • You can walk, run, swim, bike, walk your dog slowly, etc.
    • Get out there and try something new!
    • Get your friends and family involved!
  • Make better food choices
    • Cook at home more!
    • Reduce intake of processed foods and fast food
    • Try to choose brown over white
    • Watch your salt and sugar intake (and fake sugar intake!)
    • Limit alcohol
    • Try to remove trigger foods
    • Drink more water
  • Don't be extreme!
    • These 45 days are meant to start and reinforce good habits!
    • On a day that you don't make excellent choices (and there will probably be at least one of these) move on and forget it!
  • Make every effort to get more sleep!
  • No negative self talk!
    • Seriously...I will come to your house and make you apologize to yourself.
  • (optional) Keep a log 
    • A food log, an activity log, or both
    • Here is a great link for a free blank printable CALENDAR to log your exercise
    • My fitness pal is a great electronic food log
  • (optional) Track your progress in some way
    • Weigh in (not too often...maybe on the first and last day or once a week)
    • Take measurements
    • Do a before/after photo 

That's it! Just make good choices for 45 days...that's just a little over 6 weeks! You can do this!

Until later, healthy living!
