Hello friends and happy wondrous Wednesday. I’m back with an update on my February 30-day challenge and my new challenges for March.
No eating after 10pm – This is working, although there have been 2 nights where I’ve had a light snack because if I eat my dinner to early in the evening I’m hungry later at night. This also helps my blood-sugar from being out of whack. CONTINUE THIS CHALLENGE | Yes with modifications.
7k Steps 5 Days a Week – This challenge somewhat steady, with the exception of working from home. When I work from home … getting those steps into my schedule is more challenging. Here is a quick glance.
I’m happy with my progress because on most days I’m getting it in, but I know there is still work to be done so I will continue this challenge but at 7.5K steps on Mon-Fri. CONTINUE THIS CHALLENGE | Yes
Save $100 – I don’t want to say I failed this one, but let’s just say I didn’t quite meet my goal, and although showing you proof would be great, I don’t think it’s a great idea to snapshot my banking info … [lol], this doesn’t mean that I can’t do it, it just means that I need to be more disciplined. I do have an overall goal that I want to reach at the end of the year. CONTINUE THIS CHALLENGE | Yes
Minimum 7 hours of sleep on weeknights – I’m still only averaging about 5-6 hours of sleep per night which is crazy, and all of the lines and spikes identify how much I’m tossing and turning, and how long I’m awake in between, so let’s just say that I’m really struggling. I’ve even started taking something at night to help me stay asleep. I also rotate listening to sleep sounds, meditation, sleep balm, yoga for better sleep, and a Night Sky program on Amazon Prime. I get sleepy, but once I turn everything off, I’m wide awake, and I’m having trouble staying asleep. A pill is not the solution, and it’s not the way I want to continue, but until I can train my body, this is what’s working. I am averaging more on the weekends and that’s because … it’s a weekend, so at this point, I’m not just going to except that 6 hours is all I can get. I still want to add this to my March list. CONTINUE THIS CHALLENGE | Yes
Basically, I’m keeping everything on my list with just a few modifications, and praying that this makes a difference in my blood-work in March. This month I’m adding in some fun things because it can’t be all work and no play. Everything highlighted I’m carrying forward.
Here is my March 30-Day Challenge …
- No eating after 10pm
- 7K Steps 5-days a week
- Save $100 dollars
- Min 7 hours of sleep on week-nights
- No take-out of any kind (updated with healthy choices)
- No Starbucks
- No soda or juice
- Yoga 3-times per week (no exceptions)
I’m trying to set the foundations to carry these goals with me throughout the year. If I feel that my overall health and happiness are going to benefit then it’s worth it.
