Week 1- 8 8 ounce glasses of water and 2 cups of fruit

So everyone is asking "What is your New Years Resolution?", well I've decided to try something I read about...rather than setting 1 huge goal that I am unlikely to keep for 365 days I am going to pick 1 new goal each week of the year to add on to the previous weeks goals that all collectively will help make a Happier and Healthier Me. My sweet husband is going to be my partner in this and I've decided to create this blog just for this yearlong (hopefully) adventure. So week 1's goal actually has 2 parts. We probably already drink our recommended daily water most days so we felt like making that our first goal was kinda cheating so we are just going to make sure we actually do each day and also incorporate the recommended daily fruit servings into our daily diets. Here is a website that I am going to use to help get a variety of fruits in the right amount.

If you have suggestions for healthy habits we should add in please feel free to suggest them, I'm sure some weeks we will have a really hard time picking the next weeks goal. Also, if you already do what we are trying to start each week and have tips, bring it on.

This month I would like to try to add habits that will help boost my energy so please feel free to leave suggestions if you have them.

And one final note, by healthy we mean all areas of health, physical, mental, spiritual, relational, or any other area I'm not currently thinking of. And although the year didn't start on Monday we are going to start with our first goal this Monday and pick a new goal each Sunday to begin the following week.

So that's my New Years Resolutions.

LOL I just realized I put the wrong amount of fruit in the title when this was originally fixed, just 2 cups.

  2. I have a few that I'm working on:
    Goal to execute 100 continuous push-ups. I added the 200 squat and sit-up challenges as well. Then I will add pull-ups to my regimen. I've been at for a week, and I feel a whole lot better, physically.
    Bible reading plans.
    You can do B90X and read the whole Bible is 90 days. I'm taking a more measured, balanced approach, though.

  3. i like it. when you are looking for new goals i suggest walking for at least 30 minutes every day. and hugging your spouse for at least 90 seconds every day. :)

  4. What a fabulous idea! I know I don't drink enough water...and when I do try to drink all 8 glasses I always find that I'm less for fruit - I don't like fruit so I either buy the Naked or the Odwalla juices and try to have half of one every day!

  5. i thought i was your tall cool cup of water... :(

  6. How is it possible that you two are even mushy online!!!! :)
