June Challenges

Happy Monday everyone 🙂 Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, I sure did.

I cannot believe it it already June! 2009 is flying by me. That’s how you can tell you are getting old, right? Ha. Its also the start of a new week, which over here means it is time for a new Weekly Challenge!

The weigh in challenge from last week was a huge success. I was only tempted once, yesterday, and since I had put the scale up in the closet that kept me from doing it. This morning I woke up and until I started thinking about my weekly challenges, I hadn’t even thought about my weight! So I think this is working 😉

Unfortunately, I had kind of a caffeine “binge” this weekend (by which I mean I had two cups of coffee Saturday morning, a soda and dark chocolate Saturday night and 1 cup of coffee yesterday morning) but I’m drinking tea today and I’m back to monitoring my intake so its no big deal whatsoever.

However, my weekly dinners at home have been planned (even some lunches!) and I haven’t counted a single calorie, so in most respects, the challenges/changes are going quite well.

So, what’s going to happen in June?

Well, starting today, I’m going to READ MORE!

I like adding stuff as opposed to taking stuff away, so this one should be really fun. I have FOUR library books at home right now that have already been renewed once, two of which are due back this week, so I’d better get on it. I’m also a few months behind on all my magazine reading, I have a subscription to Health, Fitness, Shape and Women’s Health, so they are piling up quickly 🙂

The plan is that every day this week, I need to devote (at least) 30 minutes to reading! Reading is a healthy behavior because it gets you away from the kitchen/food, away from the television and for me, its a great way to wind down and relax before going to sleep. In fact, I do most of my reading in bed 🙂

Tonight, I’m going to try and get through a good chunk of “French Women For All Seasons” which I finally started a couple of weeks ago, it is due back on Thursday night so lets see if I can finish it!

Hope you all have a great day 😉

    The only time I can fit in time to read is right before bed and it helps me fall asleep to boot. Good luck with your challenge!
