I'm pretty sure I failed this challenge all the way around.
The purpose of the challenge was to set goals for ourselves and work toward making them habits. I was all excited about the challenge because it wasn't focused on weight loss. Due to my recent revelation that I'm freakin awesome if I weigh 120 or 138 I haven't weighed
No more tracking, obsessing, or general foolishness. But this challenge was a great opportunity to focus on healthy habits, not necessarily weight loss.
What did I choose?
- Eating 5 fruits/veggies a day
- Serving 1 veggie with dinner every night
- Picking up the house every night before bedtime.
Each Wednesday I would review the list and put a big FAIL beside each goal because I didn't achieve it.
Until I realized I was falling back into the tracking trap yet again.
Don't get me wrong, its a very useful too.
So without tracking for the past week, how'd I do? Pretty well on the serving one veggie with dinner every night. I never quite hit it on the fruits and veggies, but I am more conscious of what I pair with each meal and snack, as well as being sure to buy plenty at the store. The clean up hasn't worked as well as I'd like, but I've had so much going that when I do get a free moment its just nice to collapse on the couch.
For my final review this challenge was one giant FAIL.
Only not. Because it made me think, consider my choices, and know when give myself a break.
I mean really, I could pick up tonight and they'll just be more empty dip cans, dirty socks, and full spit cups waiting on me tomorrow.
How'd the challenge go for you?
