Happy Monday everyone! Ready for this week’s Healthy Mom Challenge? Here it is!
Limit the Treats
During the first week’s challenge, I started a food journal and tracked everything I ate. This activity confirmed what I had thought – I eat way too many treats. My challenge for this week is to limit this to 1 treat/day. This may be a bit difficult for me 🙂 Case in point, I am currently enjoying my third treat of the day. I got an iced cap from Timmies during lunch, ate some leftover Easter candy when I got home from work and made up some mug cake with ice cream for dessert. Yum! Tomorrow, I start rationing my treats!
Last week’s challenge had me limiting the amount of time I spend on my tech. My goal was to put my phone away when I got home from picking the girls up from daycare and not pick it back up until after they went to bed. While I wasn’t perfect everyday, my usual 15 minutes was cut down to less than 5 on the days that I didn’t put my phone entirely away. I also became more conscious of my habits as a result of this challenge and tried to be more present in what was going on in real time in my surroundings. I would call this one a success!
