Weekly check-in, July 11-18

I'm still working from the same exercise plan, tweaked here and there to accommodate other commitments. It works well for me to have a default plan with some flexibility.

This week, my husband and I are officially starting our new healthy-habits game. You earn points for things like getting adequate sleep, drinking water and eating vegetables. Points aren't tied to outcomes, they are tied to behaviors. Eating more fruits and veggies and drinking more water leaves less room for the bad stuff. If there is some interest, I can share the score sheet he created to track our progress. We are not playing against each other, instead, we are shooting for specific team goals. We tested it out for the last few days and it made me a lot more mindful.

Any new tips and tricks you are trying out? What is working well for you right now?

  1. I like that idea! Working for common goals instead of competing! Nice exercise schedule too!
