First of all I’d like to apologize for the lack of posting – it’s been incredibly busy and I have totally lacked any kind of motivation. However, after having a break over the holidays and having some much needed downtime, this last point leads me to my goals for 2019. I’m attempting to start a New Years resolution or more aptly a challenge for 2019. My hope is to make small (<- key word) changes or to begin forming some “new” habits. My end result is to hopefully end 2019 in an overall healthier spot and to create small habits so I can continue for years to come 😁. I’m also doing this as I go, so here we go.
I began this challenge a week ago and already with one small change I’ve noticed changes. My first challenge was to start drinking enough water in the day. Believe it or not I have been able to go a whole day without drinking very little or nothing (apparently hereditary as my mom was the same way😩). Anyways this is a horrible habit, I know. BUT, you guys…. I am happy to report I’ve done a whole week of drinking my 6 large glasses per day (apparently what I need to drink for my weight). I truly believe the key to my success on this was the app -> plantnanny.
This app calculates how much water you should be drinking in a day, sets reminders on your phone and tracks daily and weekly your progress. You also get to help “grow” the cutest little plants for your “garden”. I have to say I’ve tried other ways in the past and this has kept me on track the longest. ( 1 week I know, but 2 more weeks and it’s a habit right?).
Here is my first little plant, so cute right?
Like I said, I already have felt some positive changes of drinking enough water daily, my skin looks healthier, I feel more awake and I definitely have more energy.
My next small changes for week 2: eat more veggies and fruit daily (This week I’ll be focusing mostly on incorporating more veggies and fruit into my breakfasts) and read one chapter of a self-development book each morning before getting out of bed. I’ve downloaded Yummly to help with the first task and goodreads to track my second (add me if you have goodreads 😁: Kimberly Chiarelli). The first book I’m reading is – You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. I will update on the progress next Sunday. 😘
Thanks guys! Xoxo
