My 30 day challenge


Last night I was reading one of my fave blogs Milkteef which recommended I read this blog. This lead me to read the entire blog from start to finish and leave feeling completely inspired afterwards. I really feel like Rose has this whole life balance thing sorted out and made me want to persevere to achieve my goals this year.

So for 30 days I am concentrating on being kind to my body. I developed some pretty good habits in 2011 in relation to eating better and exercising regularly but after my trip to America it all started to go a little down hill so for the next 30 days I am aiming to:
♥ Only have one coffee and one diet coke a day (I failed this today...)
♥ Eat 2 serves of fruit & 5 serves of veggies (5 serves of veggies is tough, check out this guide)
♥ Exercise six times a week
♥ Get at least seven hours of sleep
♥ Four alcohol free nights a week
♥ Drink eight glasses (approx) of water a day
♥ Limit carbs after 4pm

I am not going to weigh or measure myself, I just want to concentrate on forming better habits and feeling good! Feel free to join me if you need to get back on track after the holiday season or maybe you could set your own 30 day challenge if there is something else you want to achieve. Lets all report back in 30 days....


Oh and by the way after 30 days I am rewarding myself with this....... its all about balance!

  2. Is it bad that I just want the slutty brownies without a challenge?? he he. I want to start cutting back on all the junk I've been eating lately..... I might cut soft drink all together, I did that for months before.

  7. Good luck with your challenge. Four alcohol free nights for me would be so tough. I pretty much have a wine cellar in my house :)

  8. These are great goals! Good luck!

    After a few weeks of very bad eating (like, an entire giant bag of Doritos for lunch...), I'm trying to have lots of fresh fruits and homecooked dinners for the rest of the month!

    I drink a lot of water and I find it helps just to have it right there, so I always try to keep a big glass or a bottle next to me :)

  11. What a great challenge. And I can see that it's for forming better habits. This I need to change too. So I've been trying to bring my own healthier snacks to work to avoid buying chocolate and chips from the social club.
