I know my blog has been quiet for over a month. There's a good reason for that. During the month of May, I realized I wasn't consistently meeting my health goals. In fact, I was only meeting them about half the month. My chart, which was meant to be a tool to keep me on track, was stressing me out and I was bored with walking and eating salads. As a result, I'm modifying my goals. My new goals will be much less rigid. I'm still aiming for 10 minutes of intense activity during the day. But, this can include a walk with Steve and the kids, playing on a playground with the kids, yoga, Zumba or anything else I please. For water, I'm striving to finish two of my water bottles at work and drink water with supper. My water bottle contains 24 ounces so if I finish two at work, I have a good start on drinking water. As for my diet, I have a new goal to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. If I have a piece of fruit with breakfast and a fruit and a vegetable with lunch and supper, I should be able to meet this goal. I don't plan to add any new goals until these goals become a daily habit.
