Manic Monday Challenge #4

Sadly, I missed last weeks challenge. First I had a sick child and now I am moving. Moving is a good thing but when it happens quicker then planned things get crazy.

Previous Challenge

The last challenge I posted was– NO fast food for a week. Did you do it? I sadly failed. Yes, I am human and as hard as I try I will not always pass these challenges. Fast food has been a major evil for me that I have been trying to conquer. I am often on the run with small kids and McDonald’s screams my name.  I wrote a entry on how to plan ahead so you do not indulge in the biggest calories out there but sometimes that doesn’t help either. As I mentioned above my 5-year-old, A, was sick for a week. This resulted in 2 doctors visit and an added plus of an ER visit. Fast food just happens sometimes. I would love to say maybe I will do without this week but since I am moving. I doubt it.

This weeks challenge.

This week I want you to have complete a food diary. Logging everything you eat can be an eye opener and help you get healthy. When you realize you had 10 M&Ms this morning at the office, some chips for a pick me up, 3 sodas, 1/2 your kids snack cake, and handful of this or that it makes you pay attention. I personally use MyFitnessPal because it logs calories, sodium, and other information. You don’t have to log all the nutritional information. Send yourself a text or jot it down. Look at everything you are eating for a week and you will start to change your eating habits.

Manic Monday Challenge #3

Sorry I am posting this so late tonight. Not feeling so well but here it goes!

Last Weeks Challenege

Get at least 1 minutes of active yesterday every day. Did you do it! I did every day but Saturday. Dance parties, gyms, and my favorite was Sunday. Some of the shopping centers near by have a play area so we walked the shopping center, took my daughter to play, and had frozen yogurt. So much fun!

Challenge #3

Who is ready for the next challenge? No Fast Food! Thats right no fast food this week! I should be able to do this but I am not sure. I will be running errands all day tomorrow so I better find something. Also my play group always meets at Chick Fi la  or Mcdonalds on Fridays. I can do this! I will pack a lunch or eat before I go.
