Good Morning, Quilters and Fitness Pros!
How’s the stepping going? Have you been more aware of your sedentary time? Have you been moving more?
Keep up the good work! We all want to become great quilters…but nothing is as important as our health! So let’s put that first–even when (especially when) we are busy! (This is me talking to myself…)
THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE
Of course we all know there are two parts to the fitness challenge–
Move More + Eat Less.
This week, move more AND be aware of your eating habits.
Set a nutrition goal for yourself this week. Keep it EASY and SIMPLE–
- “I will drink five glasses of water per day”.
- “I will eat a fruit and a vegetable with every meal and snack.”
- “I will not eat an Oreo every time I open that cabinet.”
We don’t have to change everything in one week…just pick that easy thing–the food you eat, but don’t really care about–for me it’s anything sweet. I don’t really have a sweet tooth, but I will eat it if it’s there…
So my goal this week is to not eat any sweets: candy, cookies, ice cream, doughnuts.
Now Fritos….that’s a challenge for another week! (Salty is my downfall!–that and bread…and rice…and pasta…and …—baby steps, baby steps!)
There are a lot of sources of nutrition information (and misinformation) on the web.
The US Department of Agriculture has a very good website, ChooseMyPlate.gov
If you have a source you recommend, please share a link.
