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?

Sticking to water is probably the best and easiest way to start getting healthy, fast. In terms of meal suggestions, try making guacamole but mix in some chickpeas to make it a full, healthy meal. Super yummy.
I am usually a water drinker but when I need caffeine I will take it in any form. From now on sticking to coffee if I need a little boost. Thanks for the post. Love your blog.
