Did you know that March is national nutrition month? I didn’t even know that when I decided that my focus would be on nutrition this month. For the whole month my goal is to stay on track with my eating for 30 days in a row. So far, week 1 is done and successful. My challenge last week was to only eat when I am hungry and stop when I’m mostly full. I did pretty good with that. I think I need to do that challenge again though, it’s hard since I’m still getting used to the band. The first night I over did it just because I was trying to get my protein requirement met so I drank a protein shake when I really wasn’t hungry and then I was miserable for a while because I was stuffed. So that is a challenge I will have to keep coming back to.
This week, since I struggled last week with drinking enough water, my challenge is to drink at least 96 ounces of water each day.
And now for my smash book update:
I added a page for my picture progress and my measurements. Since this book will only hold about 3 months of fun, I only have my measurements on here for 3 months.
I decided to reward myself with $1 for each work out that’s 40 minutes or more. If it’s 80 minutes, then $2. And I’m glueing the corner to this page, once the month is up then I can take that money and put it towards whatever my reward is for the month. (As long as I have earned that reward.) If I didn’t earn the reward, then I can either roll the money over to the next month or buy myself some little treat for all the great work I put in during the month.
These are my finished week one pages. I added all the pop challenge from the week and filled in all my tracking.
And here is the start of week 2. I might switch out my weekly tracking card at the bottom, it looks too messy. I’m loving the smash book though. I really think it will be a great motivator to look back at and see how far I’ve come as I keep losing and getting healthier. I also need to work on that meal plan. I need to get it done so I can go grocery shopping this weekend.
