Default "Forming new habits "- 21 Day Challenge

It works like this: you will challenge yourself with ONE new habit for 21 days straight, every single day, something you need to work on for your dieting success. Then you count ....one through 21.....and if you flub it, you MUST go back to zero and start over again. Everyone will be on different days. You can start anytime. At the beginning of the challenge you declare what level it is -- Level 1, 2, or 3. Level 1 means you feel it's a relatively easy challenge for you and means you only give yourself ONE pause day (see explanation of pause days below). Level 2 would give you two pause days and so on...

With a pause day you pause in your counting and continue the next day with the number you left off with. Pause days are NOT substitutes for days, i.e. Day 12 -- Day 13 -- Pause Day -- Day 14.....

In any case, the trick is to keep going. The momentum builds and it's great incentive to stick to your guns, cause if you don't.........back to START you go. And the really great thing about this challenge is that you are forming new habits that will wipe out the old! AND, you get to do it with a great bunch of really supportive people to whom you are accountable!

There is NO shame in starting over. Remember, it's not over till you give up. And our motto around here is:

NEVER GIVE UP!!...Just start OVER!!

This thread is a variation of an old thread called "Every Day" 21 Day Challenge 2013.

One of my greatest challenges is p.m. snacking. I eat for entertainment, boredom, I think I'm hungry, I want a treat, etc........ So NO p.m. snacking with 2 pause days possible, starting TONIGHT!

I just want to mention a book about changing habits. Its called Let Go by Martine Batchelor, a mindfulness meditation teacher. People might pick up some great new insights and ideas from it. I think i might be about ready to read it again myself.

This whole article called "8 Clever Tips for the Body You Want" was very good, and the last tip pertains to this thread. Thought it was worth sharing.

"Make one change.
Our final piece of advice for getting the body you want as effortlessly as possible? Pick one easy diet- or exercise-related change that you know you can make, and start there. Says Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, RD, author of The SuperFoodsRx Diet, Small steps and strategies do add up.

Homework: Consider the habitual things you do every day, since they ultimately shape your health and fitness. Pick one unhealthy habit and trade it in for a healthier one. For example, do you drink a high-fat, high-sugar coffee drink every day? If so, start ordering a plain coffee with low-fat milk. Or, if you donít exercise enough, start taking a daily walk. Youíll be surprised to see the difference one simple change can make. Once youíve mastered your first healthy change, you can move on to others."

Day 4 - Yesterday was a breeze for me, too. Maybe it's because we're doing this together!

In calorie range
Took an aerobics class.

Today: In range so far, and planning on staying there!
Going to Sweat to the Oldies this afternoon. (If it's good enough for Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyer's Club, it's good enough for me. LOL) - Just finished.
