Weekly Challenge: Record the amount of fiber that you eat this week.

I think that it’s always nice to have a gage of where we are before we go trying to change things up!  So this week let’s check out our fiber consumption. The way that I would suggest going about this is threefold: 1.       When available,  read the labels of the foods you are eating.  Ex:  If you eat a granola bar and it says there are 3 grams of fiber per serving, and the package has two servings, then you… Read more »


Weekly Challenge: Do not weigh yourself this week.

For some of you, I just gave you the week off from a challenge, since you don’t weigh anyway.  For others, I know you are saying “WHAT!”, but I have to weigh.

For some people it can be monumentally motivating to see what you are accomplishing on a weekly… Read more »


Weekly Challenge: Write a positive affirmation about yourself and post it somewhere that you can read it often.

An affirmation is something that you declare to be true, or something you want to be true.  But by declaring it in the present tense somehow you are helping that reality along.
