Habit One: Add More Variety to My Meals
Today I two things for lunch that I had not had in a very long time. Does adding to mini (very mini) cheesecakes and a cream soda to your meal constitute adding variety to your diet? I did a CPR workshop today and lunch was provided. I don't feel too bad about the cheesecake but the cream soda is bugging me. I could have had water. I did eat another grapple today.

Habit Two: Exercise Earlier in the Day
I got 15 hard minutes on the treadmill in this morning before I had to go to the CPR class. I'm doing another 15 before I go home today. So not too bad in the exercise department.

New Habit Three: Better Quality Sleep
I had a good sleep again last night. I think the coffee reduction is doing the trick!

Bonus Habit Improvement: 8 Glasses a Day
So far I've only had 3 glasses of water today but I plan to address that before I got to bed tonight.

As a wind up to a pretty good week today was a little disappointing but not terrible. I just have to make sure I make good choices food and drink wise for the rest of the night.

Hope you all have an amazing Spark-filled weekend!

    You covered all the basics. I find that if I get a generous amount of sleep, everything else falls into place.

    You really should be quite pleased with yourself. You focused on your goals, came up with strategies to meet them, and the one time you didn't (soda vs water), you realized what you could have done. I see it as a light-bulb moment that will help you make a better choice next time. You are doing great!
