3 Month Shape-Up to the Healthy Living Summit

I was so excited to get tickets to the 2010 Healthy Living Summit. Not only does it sound like a great time with interesting topics being covered but it's being held not to far away from me! After the tickets were bought and I looked over the agenda, I took some time to reflect on how I have been treating my body this last month.

I've been eating bad food, not getting enough water and exercise as well as boozing it up way to often. I enjoy my life and feel like I should celebrate everyday but I need to realize that celebrating doesn't have to be crappy food and booze! Everything in moderation, right!?!

Well, I'm determined to start living a better life and the healthy living summit was the kick in the ass I needed to start.

I have compiled a list below of what I intend to do to live my healthy lifestyle. I'm going to try my hardest to stick to this plan at least until the 2010 HLS.


3 Month Shape-Up

  • Cut back on soda intake
  • Drink 64 ounces of water a day
  • Take out 1 time a week
  • Meal out 1 time a week
  • Cardio 3 times a week
  • Yoga or pilates at least 1 time a week
  • Spend more time outdoors
  • Work on communicating with friends and family
  • Wake up by 8:00am on workdays

I have lots of habits I would like to kick to the curb and some I would love to welcome into my life. I've read multiple theories on how long it takes for something to become a habit. It seems the range is anywhere from 21 days to 8 weeks. So I'm giving myself approximately 10 weeks to (cross my fingers) make some of the above healthy items a habit in my life:)

Added bonus: My husband is going to do this with me so hopefully we can both make some positive changes in our lives!!! It is so much easier to make changes when an important person in your life is willing to make them with you:)

Wish us LUCK!!!

  1. This is a great time of year to try for a change like this as there is so much good produce available in the stores and the street markets. It's also more fun being outside when you don't have to wear boots and mittens. Good luck!
