8 weeks of healthy habits week 4 overview

8 Weeks of Healthy Habits!

Welcome to week 4 of our #8weeksofhealthyhabits.  Each week, I will post an overview of the upcoming week's goals with some helpful links and info. The purpose of this challenge is not to be stressful, preachy, or overbearing, just a fun way to incorporate some new ideas.  If you like something that we do, please feel free to incorporate it into your daily/weekly schedule and really make it a new habit. If you're looking to really up your game, try the #DaisyDukeStrong challenge at the bottom of this post.

The fun part about these challenges is the sharing.  See if you can post a thought or a selfie each day to the facebook page about what you're doing.  If you're an Instagram user, you can also post there, using the hashtags #PIG and #8weeksofhealthyhabits

Week 4:

Sunday: Take some time to reflect on your day & the last week. Write in a journal, or share to your blog.  Journaling on a regular basis can help you gain insight to your own humanity.

Monday: Add 1000 steps to your planned activities today. This is about half of a mile, or 10 minutes of walking.

Tuesday: Eat fresh fruit for dessert! Try Banana nice-cream! Blend 2-3 frozen bananas with a date and a couple of drops of vanilla! Yum!

Wednesday:  Play outside for 10 minutes! Go play catch with the kids, the dogs, with yourself! Skip and jump! Run like Phoebe in Friends!

Thursday: Try going without caffeine for the day, kids, try to cut out sugarey sweets. C'mon, just try it. Instead of a cup of coffee in the morning, have some orange juice! This isn't so tough.

Friday: Free Fitness! Post a selfie of you doing your favorite activity to the facebook page! Each Friday will be Free Fitness Friday. You get to choose the activity- just get up and do something and share it with the rest of us! If you post to Instagram, don't forget your hashtags, #PIG and #8weeksofhealthyhabits

Saturday: Try some PM yoga before bed tonight! Haven't tried legs-up-the-wall yet? Now's your chance!
