What a long 8 weeks! I don't know about you, but I woke up and had 3 ice cream sandwiches to celebrate the end of the challenge. Okay, I didn't, but I thought about it.

Hopefully you have all been able to make at least one of the healthy choices a daily habit. I know flossing has become a regular part of my daily regimen now. Which new habit(s) have you added to YOUR daily routine after doing this challenge?

Don't forget to enter your final points! We will be doing the final random $5 drawings tomorrow, and then announce the main winner.

We will be having a get-together THIS THURSDAY, July 12th at 6 pm. We're holding it at Scera Park in Orem (600 South State Street). There are playgrounds there, so feel free to bring your kids! Bring a treat to share, healthy or not. No biggie!  We will be doing drawings and whatnots, so you won't want to miss it.

Thank you, everyone for participating in this challenge!! I hope you enjoyed it.

Which new habit(s) have you added to YOUR daily routine after doing this challenge?

Almost there...

Hi Everyone!

We made it through another week. I hope you all are still feeling motivated and strong in making your healthier choices. I know it's hard to change certain habits, especially in the summertime. The nights stay sunny longer, BBQ gatherings are abundant, and regular schedules can be thrown off when the kids (or you!) are out of school. But you are all doing so great. I still see plenty of high numbers entered each week!

And don't forget, even if you don't think your numbers are very high, keep entering them on before Tuesday morning! There will be multiple prizes at the end of this challenge, including a couple prizes for those who enter their points on time each week, no matter what the number is.

We'd like to have a get together at the end of the challenge for those who live around here. We can eat, chat, get to know each other better, and just have a grand old time. Maybe we'd even bring out the trampoline! We are thinking of holding a get together on Thursday, July 12th at 6:00 pm. If you'd be able to make it, please comment here or email me to let me know. We will determine a location that is central to those who are coming.

Thank you!

Enter your points!

Meet Rachael

Name: Rachael Langston
Age: 30
Where you live: Orem, UT
What you do for a living: I hang out with Things 1, 2, and 3. I try to stay sane during the hang out.

Favorite Hobbies: 

I enjoy singing; Music has always been important to me. 
If I could, I would constantly be traveling the world. I love to meet new people and learn about different cultures.
I like reading. I love movies. 
I like figuring out how to do things (i.e. prune my own trees, fix my disposal, etc.).

Favorite Food (healthy or not): Mashed potatoes and gravy. I love turkey. Dark chocolate. Cheese. I know, I named more than one, but I really like food,

What is the hardest thing for you to keep up with in this challenge? (sleep, water, exercise, etc):
Exercise. It is hard to fit it into my schedule. I usually end up doing it once I get the baby to sleep at 10pm. 

I also really like chocolate, so the no sugar/sweets rule isn't my favorite, bu it's good for me. I had never given up sweets before these challenges. I will say that it's easier to have none than to say I'll just have a little and stick to that.

Which is the easiest thing for you to keep up with in this challenge? Any tips you'd like to share? 
The free exercise point on Sunday is the easiest. 
2nd place- Drinking the water. Anytime I get the munchies I try to drink a glass of water first. I also keep a large cup by the kitchen sink so I can monitor my ounces. 

Sometimes I mindlessly lose a point because of bad habits, but each of the rules is getting easier the longer I do it. During my first challenge I had a REALLY hard time not eating junk food after 8pm. Now it is easier; I don't sit and think about the junk food. I try to think about all the benefits I am getting from the healthier choices.
