Challenge: Week 9
Well my second month of my 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge has come and gone and I have to say, I didn’t do as well as I had hoped. Instead of focusing on eating more fresh fruits and veggies I was trying to eat better all-around by cutting out fast food and focusing more on protein dishes. Well my friends, I failed miserably.
For the month of March the focus is to drink more water. My personal goal is to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day and totally cut soda out of my diet. I don’t ever buy a bottle or can of soda to keep in the house, but I love me some fountain Dr. Pepper. While cutting out the soda I am also going to eat more balanced meals. I am not going to say I will cut one thing out of my diet completely like I am with soda but this month I am going to track what I eat in a little diet diary. In two weeks in will be able to give you an update on how I am doing.
My plan is to continue going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week and hopefully lose 8 pounds by the end of March. I have 3 or 4 weddings to go to this year with the first one this summer and I hope to be down 30 pounds by August. Any healthy meal suggestions anyone?
