I desire to LIVE HEALTHY, not only for myself, but for my family. I want to model a healthy lifestyle for my children, so they can grow up and know what it is to live healthy and already have those habits formed in them. So, I have decided I am going to let you all in on the journey :) Sometimes I look at myself and see so many things that I want to change, but I have come to realize that I do much better working on one thing at a time. (And I am able to stick with it!) I’ve heard it said a few times that it takes around 3 weeks to change a habit. So I am going to be working in three week increments. I will be working on a habit for three weeks, checking in on Mondays to let you know how I did (accountability is a good thing!). After the three weeks I will move on to the next habit that I would like to change, keeping up with the previous ones. First off I am going to change what I drink. I like sugar. I love sweet tea and soda. :( And I definitely don’t drink enough water. So my goal for the next three weeks, (and forever) is to seriously change what I drink. Here’s what it will look like:
- one glass of juice in the morning mixed in with my liquid vitamin
- one - two cups of hot tea a day (breakfast and/or evening)
- one cup of coffee (during my Bible Study)
- 8 glasses of water
And that’s it! That’s what I will be working on these next few weeks. How about you? Are there any unhealthy habits you want to work on in the next three weeks?
