But back to this Weigh-In Wednesday post about challenges.
Challenges ...do you like them? Or do you tend to stay in your comfort zone?
I have to admit that I find it easy to continue doing the things I normally do. I make my plan and I stick with it. But I want to begin to change things up a bit. So when Kim of At Home with Kim posted about a weekly challenge, I thought to myself 'you can do this Debbie. Yes you can!'.
We have two challenges this week:
- Do at least two planks every day.
- Drink at least 48 ounces of water a day.
So in case you don't know what a plank is, check out this short video. I started doing them in addition to my daily treadmill exercise.
My routine is to immediately head to my treadmill when I get home from work. My husband knows not to distract me and has my water ready. Thank you Greg!
Our second challenge is one I need to work on. You'd think that since I live in Arizona, I would automatically drink lots of water. In the summer season I drink lots of water but I tend to forget when the weather is cooler. When I get home I start drinking water but then I have to wake up at night a few times. I need to drink more water earlier in the day so I get a good night's sleep.
I wrote about creating habits last week. In case you missed it, you can read all about it here.
Creating healthy habits is so important. But it takes 21 days to form a new habit. I'm working through those 21 days so it becomes automatic.
It's not too late to join in. Be challenged and be accountable. It's actually fun. I'll be writing about my progress each Wednesday so stay tuned. Here's to good health!
Blessings and love,
