It’s a couple days late but I thought I would recap last week on the Choose Healthy Challenge!
I spent most of last week in the gorgeous cities of Ucluelet and Tofino, British Columbia, at the northern end of Vancouver Island. My boyfriend and I got to go surfing, whale watching, hiking, swimming, and relax in some of the most beautiful scenery I’ve seen!
I started the week off with a juice cleanse. While I had my ups and downs with it (I will tell you all about it this week) there were some noticeable benefits that have carried on to this week.
My goal was to eat a fruit or veggie with every meal, and I think I managed to accomplish that pretty well! It can be hard on vacation, but I brought a big bag of baby carrots with me so I always had a vegetable on hand, and made sure to have fruit with my breakfasts.
Of course, since it was vacation, there was ice cream and candy to be had as well, but definitely not as much as I would normally consume on a vacation!
This week’s goal is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I have a brand new 32 ounce water bottle that I took hiking with me, and I’m aiming to drink three – four of those every day.
Overall I definitely feel better, and I can’t wait to see the results at the end of week four! How are you doing with your healthy planning and goals? Let me know, with the hashtag #choosehealthy.
Summer is for reading. I don’t think anybody can dispute that with me. There are window ledges, beaches, rainy day chair swings, beds, lakeside patios, and hammocks begging to be used as a chair for our favourite activity, reading.
If you haven’t been reading something for pleasure this summer, you should get on that, and fast!
Here are some of the books I still hope to read this summer.
I have already read a couple I can’t wait to share with you. What books do you want to read? Have you read any of these? Any to recommend?
I would also like to congratulate Laurel and Mercedes on winning the giveaway I had a few weeks back in partnership with Team in Training and Fit Approach! Laurel has won free entry into the Nike Women’s Half Marathon and Mercedes has won some team in training swag. I have emailed you both! Congratulations!
