Week 4 Goal!

Hi Health Challengers!

It's hard to believe that it is almost the start of week 4 which means we are almost half way done with the Challenge!  But before we jump ahead of ourselves, we do have to get through this week.

New Goal : Add a new goal to your checklist that has nothing to do with food.  

Ideas Include:

  • Meditation.
  • Sleep at least 8 hours a night or get an additional 15-30 minutes per night.
  • Floss daily.
  • No tv/phone in bed!
  • No tv/phone/magazines while you eat.
  • Daily prayer.
  • Stretch daily.
  • Repeat a daily mantra.  

I'll be adding in meditation daily (which I've kind of started doing lately but not consistently).  I've been reading an section from Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life by Jon Kabat-Zinn every morning (no its not quite as cheesy as it sounds..but its close).

One of the biggest things I work on with my clients is getting them to see beyond a set diet plan and more about the habits and emotions behind their food choices to create a less stressful lifestyle.  Creating small goals towards health is incredibly important!


  1. My goal is no iPad on bed. Im not crazy connected to it but can get sucked into Facebook checking, news reading, and solitaire before falling asleep. Needs to be substituted for a good book instead!

  2. I like that idea...hopefully you'll be getting more sleep/getting to sleep sooner :)
