Healthy Habits Monday - Week 5

Update: I am still drowning in paper, but managed to get through Open House and the first day of school with all of the required forms and checks and slips and summer reading lists handed in to the correct person. That has to count for something, right? Schools have to top my list as the worst paper wasters EVER! Why they can't have one form that you fill out per child and then print/save the information they need for each required location (teacher, clinic, office, etc.) instead of making me fill it out on those teensy lines so you can barely read my writing, with six copies of the exact same information? You can almost hear the trees weeping every August. It's a sin, I tell you.

Sorry, on to my meal planning and water. Neither showed stellar results this week between the two trips to the dentist, the long night and day with Divot :c( and another football injury, plus trying to get ready for school to start. I need to kick it up a notch if I'm going to survive the season.

But in the interest of moving forward, I am adding a new habit this week. Now that the kiddos are back in school, I am resolving to exercise at least 2.5 hours/week. Today I did 30 minutes on the treadmill after morning carpool, so I'm off to a good start. This is a critical one for me, and I hope in future weeks to bump up the time.

Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks Monday is a good day to start a new habit. Last week I got this link to Healthy Monday. Check it out for lots of other ideas and resources for your own healthy habits.

What's on your To Do list this week?
