I am SO glad Januweary is over!!!!! Now we can move on to the sweet month of February! 😉
I decided I needed a Challenge or a focus for this month to help me out of the winter blahs. I feel like I have just been going through the motions this last month so I came up with the Feeling Fabulous in February Challenge! 😉 To feel fabulous…..we need to be following the Good Health Guidelines and checking off our list of Health Checks DAILY!!!! I created a checklist that has the Weight Watchers Good Health Guidelines but is similar to the checklist on The Game On Diet we did a couple of years ago – but instead of being in a competition with others like this game encourages – I want it to be a competition with myself. I want to see how much I can improve in the choices I make daily and weekly – because this is all really about becoming our BEST SELF and loving YOURSELF MORE!
To keep it simple the idea each day is:
Eat 5-6 small healthy meals using the Good Health Guidelines (No Bites, Licks, Tastes)
Exercise – try just 20 mins a day
Water – our body needs MORE water!
Sleep – studies show that getting 7+ hours of sleep a night can help tremendously with stress levels, weight loss, etc.
New Habit – pick a new habit you want to work on this month – can be ANYTHING and doesn’t have to be ‘diet’ related
Old Habit – pick a bad habit that you want to kick! Make an effort to NOT do that bad/old habit and you can check it off! 😉
To help me keep track – and since I’m OCD and I love lists and checklists – I threw together a checklist that we can use for this. I plan on printing it off and posting it somewhere so I can check off my things as I do them throughout the day! Click HERE for the link to the checklist that you can print to use. Pick something to reward yourself (non food related 😉 ) at the end of each week and then at the end of the month once you get X number of checks. You will be surprised at how fabulous and how empowering you will feel by being in control of the choices you make each day!! Give it a try!!!
Here’s a cool printable daily planner I found online.
