Default Challenge Yourself for the Week of April 24-30, 2011!

Quote:
Weekly challenges are a great way to stay accountable on your goals over shorter terms. You choose your goal for the week. It may or may not be sustainable over the long term. If a challenge/goal is not working after one week, re-evaluate and modify or move on. If you're thriving and you like it, feel free to reuse goals week to week as you integrate the healthy habits you develop with your routine!

Let us know your goal for this week and be sure to check in along the way and at the end to let us know how you're doing!

Feel free to tell us about how your goal went last week too!
Have a great week!

1) Drink at least 64 oz of water daily
2) Limit my nf plain Greek yogurt to no more than 1 cup per serving per day.
3) Will not buy and bring home any nsa fudge bars!

24 - water, yes; yogurt, yes; fudge bars, yes!
25 - water, yes; yogurt, yes; fudge bars, yes!
26 - water, yes, yogurt, yes; fudge bars, yes!
27 - Yes for all three
28 - Ditto!
29 - water, yes; yogurt, ; fudge bars, yes.

Here's the plan for the week:

4/24 jog/walk 3 miles - check
4/26 Ultimate
4/28 Ultimate
4/30 jog/walk 5.5 miles

This all builds to a larger plan - I am trying for a half marathon in the beginning of August. In order to get there, I need to add about a half mile to my distance each week. Got up to 5 miles jog/walk last week, so . . . here's to trying!

Be well -
