Daily Health Challenge (Spark, WW, everyone!)

Recommended Posts

OK so let's get a mini-challenge going! I posted this up on Spark as well. We can then just check in and tell if we did or did not do it! It's small things that we can all do to improve our health, lose weight if you need to, and just get a little motivated (for us who have motivation problems... um like me!):

 

October 8 - Drink 64 oz. of water!

 

October 9 - Do 50 crunches (any type)

 

October 10 - Work out for 30 minutes min. (any type)

 

October 11 - Do 25 leg-lifts (each leg)

 

October 12 - Eat right all day!

 

October 13 - Take a day off!

 

October 14 - Try a new vegetable

 

October 15 - 25 lunges (each leg)

 

October 16 - Don't eat anything with "Added Sugar"

 

October 17 - Do 25 push-ups (real of "girl")

 

October 18 - No refined carbs - Eat only whole grains (fruit, veggies, whole wheat bread, brown rice, wheat pasta)

 

October 19 - Try a new fat free food

 

October 20 - Look up a new healthier recipe for one of your old unhealthy favorites (mac n' cheese, potatoes au gratin, cookies, etc.)

 

October 21 - Add some veggies to your breakfast

 

October 22 - Do 50 jumping jacks (or modify)

 

October 23 - Try a new twist to your normal work-out (intervals, weights, new class, machine, etc.)

 

October 24 - Drink that water again!

 

October 25 - Lift some weights!

 

October 26 - Log everything you eat in drink all day and ALL NIGHT!

 

October 27 - Go for a long walk

 

October 28 - Try a new food

 

October 29 - 50 squats!

 

October 30 - Minimize sodium in your diet (watch out for pre-packaged food!)

Kash - what a great list!!!! And you say you're not motivatedhuh.gif This list sure motivated me. Small, do-able challenges. It's GREAT!!!!

 

Ok, so I'm almost done with the 64oz of water. I have about 20 more to go.

 

Um, still haven't used the new treadmill yet. I know there are no excuses but I did have a busy weekend. I plan on using it tonight for at least 30 minutes. Plus I've been sticking to my target calorie intake all day, and I'm doing good so far. The scale still hasn't moved, but I guess maintaining is better than gaining, righthuh.gif

Oh, and I forgot to mention that today is Day #6 without Diet Coke. I even went to Subway today for lunch and turned down fountain soda (which I LOVE!!!!) But that just means I'll drink more water.

Jen I really want to get that book you were talking about, it sounds really good. So what do they say in the book about DC, I know you've mentioned its bad for you. I have heard that before too that it expands your waistline, if that makes sense?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
