2013 Weekly Challenge #22: Build a New Healthy Habit

 

Your challenge this week is to create a new healthy habit (or break an old unhealthy one). Here's a great article on the topic:

They help us to reach specific goals, stay focused along the way and keep on pushing when the going gets touch. At the same time, non-supportive habits can keep us from moving forward or even hurt our well-being. As Dr. Andrew Weil says, anything you do with repetition and emotion will become your reality. If you’re not satisfied with your current experience, examine your habits.

Weekly Challenge 2013 #18: Close the Kitchen!  
Late night snacking can sneak up on you when you don't even see it coming. That last bite of something left on the kitchen counter, a few cookies during the evening news, a cup of hot chocolate... Because you are slowing down for the day, late night calories don't get burned off.
