Whole Life Challenge Complete

Well I have to say the sense of complete of this challenge is WONDEROUS!  The Challenge is done although the Whole Life aspect is not over.  I will continue to include all my goals into my daily life. 

I may have some more mini-challenge to come. Or additions at least to this.  I will try to update monthly as to my progress.  Here is the final tally:

  • Eat BREAKFAST every day.  – I have throughly enjoyed all the fun little items that I have had for breakfast.  Yet the best introduction to my morning routine was dusting my coffee maker off.  For the last week I have been enjoying a cup of fresh java.  Also I must provide a second checkmark as I was able to save money as well by drinking my coffee from home.  $1.50/day x 20 days (4 work weeks) = $30 of potential savings!! WoooHooo
  • Take the stairs in the apartment. – I have continue to take the stairs as much as possible.  I do cheat some days when I am super tired.   
  • Take a 30 minute walk each day – Dexter has to be the happiest and well walked dog I know.  He has a internal clock, he will sit and stare at the leash when he knows its walk-time.  Smarty Pants! 
  • No POP!! –  This is still the largest habit I am working dilgently to break.  I can report that my Pop intake is significantly less! I drink 2-3 lt of water everyday. 
  • Drink more water  – YES I do!! (see above)
  • Limit Sugar intake – I have tried to switch to sweetener.  I am not a fan of it.  I have cut as much sugar as possible out.  I drink 1 milk 1 sugar opposed to a double/double now.
  • Eat more fibre (In hopes to ease tummy issues) – I personally consume 1/5 boxes of spinach a week.  Aaron has warmed up to the produce and he is happy when I buy more veggies.  I have also made sure to include the lentils and beans.
  • Pack a lunch everyday! –  Again $$$ saver.  If you would estimate the avgerage good lunch (good=healthy) is about $8/day that is a savings of $160 per month.  I do note that my lunches taste much better as I know what exactly is in my sandwich or soup.
  • Read a book in that time…  –  I did not complete the book.  It is a great book and I plan to have a book review soon!! (Hold me to it)
  • Workout 5 Days a week – I love the gym! I truly enjoy my running on the treadmill.  It is a stress reliever.

Enjoy the Little Things (Check) – Last weekend the girls and I made apple sauce!!!

    Congrats on a Whole Life Challenge finish! I can’t believe it’s come to an end already. I’m not sure if I’ve been as dedicated to the challenge as I should have been, but I do know that overall my habits are changing slowly but surely. I’ll have to create a post today myself about the end of this experience. GO US!
