Resolutions in Motion: end of six weeks

So, guys, you remember this post where I was excited to start a lifestyle change? Yeah, I barely remember too, lol.

My goals were:
Drink at least the recommended 8 oz. of water a day
Cut out the every day Mountain Dew drinking
Try to exercise at least 20-30 minutes a day

For the first three weeks I did pretty well. I drank waaayy more water than I have in a long time. Mountain Dew consumption was cut down dramatically. Exercise? No, that didn’t happen, lol, but Thanksgiving happened. We went to my granny’s who always has a surplus of Coke. I drank a lot. Too much. Then, when we returned from my granny’s, we were moving from our home we had been in for 6 years to our first home bought by us =) When I had a chance, I would eat and drank whatever was on hand. We had six packs of Pepsi and Mountain Dew in the fridge that my husband bought. Since the move, I’ve been a bit better. I’ve been drinking more water and have substituted my Dews for Powerades or Gatorades. They’re still sugary drinks but I feel they’re a bit better than a caffeine and sugar induced high that MD’s gave me. I have no one to blame but myself though. I need to be more determined and strict on myself so I’m going to forge ahead and continue to cut out Mountain Dews and Cokes too!

Thanks Covered in Grace, Shaping up to be a Mom, and Ramblings of A Southern Belle for motivating me to try to set goals for myself and even if I fail to keep trying!
