12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge: Week 1 Update


12-Months-to-a-Healthier-You-5-500x800Earlier this week Crystal over at Money Saving Mom issued a challenge:  complete twelve healthy habits, spaced over the course of the year, which would help bring about a new, improved and healthier you.

And since I’m not doing my own habits this year I thought this would be an awesome challenge to take part of.  A few of my 2014 goals center around becoming more healthy.  Plus this challenge has built in accountability!  What’s not to love?

January’s Challenge:  developing the habit of exercising more

My Exercise Goals for January:  

  • 1,500 (or more) fitness minutes
  • at least 15 minutes exercise daily

This Week’s Progress:

Since January 1st I’ve done about 250 fitness minutes.  I’ve definitely done at least a little something each day.  In fact, the least amount of minutes so far has been on the 1st when I only did 29 minutes.  (Apparently I couldn’t make it that one extra minute!)

I do need to amp it up a bit though.  The trickiest days will be Sundays since I’m at church (primarily sitting), at my parent’s house (primarily sitting and eating) or driving (while sitting, funnily enough) for the majority of the day.  I will just have to make an effort to get moving before I have to leave or after I get home.  Preferably both!
