January 2014 Challenge | Week 1

Since we rang in the new year on a Wednesday, the first "week" of January was a short one.

I began my monthly challenge for January on Wednesday. Below are the details of my challenge, the goals for the coming week, and my weigh-in from this morning.

Monthly Challenge for January
  1. Take vitamins daily
  2. Log into Healthy Habits e-course daily (
  3. Make meal and exercise plans weekly
  4. Weigh-in weekly with photos for accountability
I'm currently taking a Prenatal Vitamin and Folic Acid (to prepare my body for the future), Vitamin D (to help keep my MS under control) and Vitamin C (to keep myself from getting sick).

Healthy Habits e-course:
I am participating in the Healthy Habits e-course this month. This past week focused on water, and how much we should be drinking. Did you know that we should be drinking half our body weight in ounces? For example, if you weigh 200 lbs, it would be good to aim for a total of 100 ounces of water a day. Until this past week, I was drinking way less water than I should have been.

Dinner Plan for the week:

Sunday - Slow Cooker Vegetable and Wild Rice Soup
Monday - Lemon Butter Shrimp over Pasta with Salad
Tuesday - Chicken Salad
Thursday - Lemon Baked Salmon with Salad
Friday - Mushroom and Cheese Calzone
Saturday - Birthday Party

Max helped me search through cookbooks and meal plan this morning.

Exercise Plan for the week:

Sunday - Walk 3 miles | Strength training
Monday - Zumba
Tuesday - Strength training
Wednesday - Run 1 mile | Walk 2 miles
Thursday - Strength training
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Run 1 mile| Walk 2 miles

(Trying to mix it up each day!)

Weekly Photo Weigh-In:

Down 2.2 lbs. since January 1, 2014.

Today, I am going to get some house work done and go grocery shopping. It may be time for us to take down the Christmas tree, too.
