8 weeks of healthy habits week 7

8 Weeks of Healthy Habits!

Welcome to week 7 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 7:

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: It's dance party time again! Since the reunion is just a few weeks away, how about the Cotton eye Joe, or the Boot Scootin' boogie?

Tuesday: Green smoothie day again! Today I made a green smoothie with all of my leftover fruits, strawberries, bananas, peaches, and some kale. Yum.

Wednesday: Go for a walk today during lunch or after work. Give it 10 minutes. Then see if you want to do more!

Thursday:  Choose a healthy snack. Mia makes this awesome black bean dip which is basically just mashed black beans, lime juice, and garlic powder. Great for celery and carrot dipping!

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: Meditate for 10 minutes

Monday: 145 crunches, 145 squats, 5 sets of 15-19 push-ups each
