Good Health Guideline Challenge

After my Holiday binge, I decided that the best way to feel better and get back to success was going to be focusing on Weight Watchers’ Good Health Guidelines.  Each week I will focus on integrating these fundamental changes in to my every day life, to let me gain more control over my decisions.

Week one [12.29-01.04]: Drink at least 6 8-ounce glasses of liquid a day. Water is the best choice.

Week two [01.05-01.11]: Choose whole-grain foods, such as brown rice and oats, whenever possible.

Week three [01.12-01.18]: Include two servings of milk products – low fat (1%) or fat-free – each day.

Week four [01.19-01.25]: Have 2 teaspoons of healthy oils (olive oil, canola, sunflower, safflower or flaxseed) each day.

Week five [01.26-02.01]:  Ensure that you are getting enough protein by choosing at least a serving or two of lean meats, skinless poultry, fish, beans, soy products, and lentils.

Week six [02.02-02.08]: Limit added sugar and alcohol. <— my biggest challenge

Week seven [02.09-02.15]: Eat at least five servings of vegetables and fruits each day.

Week eight [02.16-02.22]: Take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement each day.
