Wellness Challenge: Week 8

This week our focus is on me time, setting a physical challenge and on snacking. 

MIND

This week our focus is on having ‘me time’ and doing something that nurtures your soul. I am definitely a yes person, I don’t like to disappoint people and I always put myself last. This week I am going to spoil myself, I am going to spend 2 hours doing whatever I want. I’ll keep you updated on Instagram.

BODY

This week we are going to set ourselves a physical challenge. This could be walking 10,000 steps a day or even doing a 30 minute workout every day, the choice is yours. My physical challenge this week is to go for a walk every day, even if it’s only for 15 minutes, just to make sure I am moving regularly.

NUTRITION

I have been sticking to the nutrition challenges but if I’m completely honest, my snacking hasn’t exactly been great. This week no more excuses, I am going to limit myself to healthy snacks only to fill nutrition gaps. If it doesn’t benefit me nutritionally then I shouldn’t be snacking on it. Sarah Moore’s latest post on is snacking healthy? is an absolute must read this week.
