6 Weeks to a New Me!!

I don’t normally talk about my diet or workouts on my blog. I am so inconsistent and wonder “who would read about me lifting weights anyway?”  🙂  Yet when the Lord Jesus speaks to you it’s kinda hard to ignore. You see today I had wanted to start a “strictish” 6 week diet. I wanted to lose my last 5lbs and I just needed to get serious and do it. Then when I checked my email this morning I saw:


I thought “wow this would be a great help to me for the next 6 weeks. 5 weeks to do the challenge and the sixth to reinforce it all!!”  So without further ado CHALLENGE #1



Week 1 Challenge:

Name 1 healthy habit that you would like to work on establishing in your life over the next 5 weeks.  It could be cutting back on junk food, fast food, or soda pop.  It could be to exercise more, drink more water, or get more sleep.  Name it in the comments section…often times we are more apt to follow through on committments when we have told someone else!



I find that unless I make a conscious effort to remember, record and take note of how many glasses I drink I only average about 3 or 4 glasses a day. Way to little. And my body tells me that through headaches or gas pains :~ So along with my note book of food logging I also record my water intake. I am picking up my notebook, dusting it off, creaking it open and writing in it   😉  hehe  Today (it is 10:30) I have 1 glass of water. Oh and the other thing I do to drink more water is: I grab a glass for the day that equals 1 cup. Then I fill it up and stick it on the counter by itself so everyone knows that’s my glass. Then when I finish the water, I fill it up again right away and record it. That way I always have water on the counter -no lazy excuses 🙂

Would you care to join me? What would your habit be? Do you drink enough water? 🙂   I’ll keep you  updated. Thanks for reading!! 🙂 🙂

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! You picked a great challenge! I used to drink tons of pop when I was a kid and I hated water. Years ago, I started carrying a water bottle with me (every place I go), with a sports top, and now I drink it all day long. I’ve never actually measured how much I drink, but it’s something I’d like to know. Maybe I’ll start keeping track this week. Good luck!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’ve only been blogging for a few weeks now and I’m loving it! Water is hard for me too. Have you seen those new double insulated cups with straw! I picked up a couple for making my water more appealing and fun to drink. Good luck!

  3. I’m working on the water thing too – I’m on my 4th glass of the day right now as I type :)! I’m working on adding in those veggies and fruit too! Thanks for joining the challenge and I hope you say bye bye to those 5 pounds! You can do this!! Press on!
    Lots of Love,
