12 Months to a Healthier You: March 2014

12 Months to a Healthier You is a monthly challenge I’ve decided to take on. By taking on small challenges every month I’m hoping to make lifelong changes in the way I live.

Wow, another month has already passed!  Hard to believe time is going by so quickly.  I really hope that I can focus on eating healthier around Purim time!  Luckily I won’t have to cut back on sugar until next month ;).

As a reminder, here are this year’s focus areas:

January Review: Exercise Regularly

Although I haven’t gone on the eliptical at all and I haven’t done my planks (sorry to let you all down), I have been walking a ton more than I used to.  It’s about the only positive thing to come out of my longer commute.  As the weather gets warmer I hope to walk even more!

February Review: Eat More Fresh Fruits and Veggies

I’ve been doing better with this one than I thought!  I’ve been bringing at least 2-3  salads for lunch a week.  I try to bring at least 1-2 fresh fruits to work with me and I started roasting more veggies.  This is something I definitely want to continue doing.

March Goal: Drink More Water

I suppose I’ve already begun doing this one… but I really should be drinking even more water.  My plan is to buy a water bottle for work and to drink it!  I want to cut out some of the soda/iced tea I drink and hope that by drinking more water I can save some $$ too.

How do you make sure you drink enough water daily?  Any tips you can offer me?

Until next time,
