Feeling Fabulous in February!!

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.

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
