Summer is the time of year that I start to really focus on things that I let slide during the school year when I am really busy. Last year I scrapbooked every picture in the house and painted some wall art for our dining room. The year before I made myself a weekly cleaning schedule after reading several housekeeping books and sewed curtains for the dining room. After a month of not working, I get a little stir crazy. I'm kind of at that point this summer. My training is coming along great, I'm not speedy but I am fit and can easily handle the distances that I want to go. However, since I have time and energy to focus on one area of my life, this summer I am picking nutrition. I have said in past posts that I would like to do a little better in that area. The foods that I eat are good, healthy foods, but maybe too much and not at good times... I KNOW what to do, I just don't always do it because I have family or work as a handy excuse.
Hence, THE 6 WEEK CHALLENGE, yes all capital letters! For 6 weeks I will do my best to have perfect nutrition in the hopes that once school starts again, I will have ingrained those habits and it will be easier to keep up. They say it only takes 21 days to make a habit and I have 6 weeks until my next triathlon, so why not??? This will be an experiment of 1 to see how much my nutrition plays a role in my training and results. It should be interesting and I will post weekly updates, so come back often to see how it's going!
