Challenge Week #7: Making Habits Stick

WOW! Last week when I visited with you, I was amazed at the progress you have made towards greater health. Over 70 pounds have been lost, there are some new runners on the team, you're finding time to stretch more (and feeling the rewards), and fast food meals are being replaced with healthier snacks.

Some of the goals set last week included:
  • Start drinking more water
  • Get through an entire kickboxing class!
  • Eat a healthy breakfast instead of fast food
  • Continue to make progress in quitting smoking
  • Keep logging meals in MyFitnessPal
  • Stretch or walk for every 60 minutes spent sitting
Do you notice something about these goals? They are not outcome goals, they are habit goals! They each focus on the action to be taken that will lead to the outcome, and that is what makes them so great.

Here are some ways you can ingrain a habit into your life, no matter whether you started the goal back in May or are thinking about it today. If you consistently do the things that make you healthier, you will over time become a healthier person. That's how it works!

29 Ways to Successfully Ingrain a Behavior

Mark your calendars now for Monday, June 30 from 2:30 - 4:30, when we will have our finale event. I can't wait to see you then...stay tuned for more details!

Have a healthy week!
