Also as I mentioned earlier in a blog, I learned I swapped the sweets for other things, mainly chips. But I now know, I can't get the big bag of chips. At my local grocery store, they have a nice size bag for .50 cents, and also a size bigger for $1.00. I allow myself one a week.
Then there is the bag of sugar free chocolate. That I will not do again (see earlier post! LOL) I get myself one serving, instead of the bagful. It works for me.
But anyway as I completed my third day of walking for the week, I decided I WAS READY to make some more challenges for me. They are not huge ones, but things I can add to on this No Sugar, No Soda challenge. Are you game? I know others are doing this on Kathy's Blog, and they have three challenges, but I was not ready to make those challenges when they did. To be a little different we are going with four. Remember this is YOUR CHALLENGE, so no matter what you feel you need to do YOU CAN DO IT!!! If you want to do three instead of four, you can. Also, we can do these till Valentine's Day -- which by the way is SEVENTEEN DAYS AWAY!!!
Here are my new challenges:
1) Still sticking with my No Sugar and No Soda (sweets and pop)
2) Walk three times a week
3) Write down what I eat 3 times a week (I see a pattern there)
4) Eat in my car ONLY once a week. If you ever saw the inside of my car, you would understand this one! LOL
Okay see those are silly ones, especially the last two. But if I can get in a habit of doing it, I can increase the days and make a bigger change to my lifestyle. And that is what we are really striving to do. You all have done so well, but I want to hear from you.....good or bad. Tell me what your thoughts are? Did your moods change? What did you learn? Are you ready for another one after Valentine's Day?
Sorry I have been so bad at blogging this week, but I am still here and want to hear from all of you!!!! Oh maybe that should be my FIFTH CHALLENGE!!!
