Tough week! Been busy volunteering for charity fashion shows and haven’t had the energy to go bust out some exercises in the gym. I promise to do better this week team. Help me out!

New post! 1 (and a half week) Health Month review

<p>Well well well! It has been going great so far this month! Only one life point lost and 1,651 points at the moment. This week just gone has been hectic with volunteering for charity but I have managed to follow most of my rules in the little free time I have had. I seem to be getting good wildcards on a daily basis at the moment and that is boosting my points up. I also seem to be doing well with my breakfast rule and it is just habit to have breakfast now so it isn't too much of an issue anymore. I'm happy that I am getting into the routine of having breakfast as it is extremely important to function for the rest of the day and Health Month has been a good way to motivate me to keep having breakfast!</p> <p>I need my team to keep being strong and working hard as I know they will!&nbsp;</p> <p>Go Team!</p>

New post! March's Health Month and General Life Rules

<p>The beginning of another Health Month already! Last month seemed to absolutely fly by! After moderate failure (in my eyes) last month, I have started this month very well and I am pleased with my progress. I have increased from 7 rules to 9 rules this month thus making things more challenging.</p> <p>My rules this month are as follows:</p> <p>1). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">List things you're grateful for one day a week</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre; font-weight: bold;"> </span>This rule worked well for me last month so I see no need to change it therefore I'll keep a <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>laissez-faire attitude towards this one.</p> <p>2). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Drink at least 23 glasses of water a week</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>Upped from last month as I found drinking 20 glasses a week fairly simple. This was what the <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>automated system at health month suggested for me to try, so I have!</p> <p>3). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Eat raw fruit every day</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>Simple yet effective and worked great last month. Something as a student that I feel is vitally <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>important due to lack of a good diet at university. I try the best I can of course but this keeps me <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>reaching for fruit instead of a packet of crisps or other junk food.</p> <p>4). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Practice guitar at least 4 days a week</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre; font-weight: bold;"> </span>Just to make sure I still make time to play :)</p> <p>5). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Do weight training at least 3 days a week</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre; font-weight: bold;"> </span>The main reason I use health month. This being to keep healthy and monitor bulking up at the <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>same time. 4 times a week was a little hard to achieve last month so I will stick to 3 times a <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>week!</p> <p>6). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Drink 2 protein shakes a day at least 4 days a week</span></strong></p> <p><strong></strong>&nbsp;<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>This rule was my achilles heel last month and therefore I have reduced the frequency from <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>everyday to at least 4 days a week which I think I will find much more manageable.</p> <p>7). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Eat breakfast every day</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>Yes, I was one of those, I couldn't stomach breakfast early and if I could I usually would rather <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>sleep and rush than have breakfast. Recently I have become much better at having breakfast <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>and this is just that extra incentive to keep it up.</p> <p>8). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Get at least 8 hours sleep every night</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>This is important for 2 reasons. Reason 1 being that if I want to bulk up, the sports scientist in <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>me tells me that I have to have significant sleep otherwise work in the gym may actually be <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>counter productive to my gains. 8 hours sleep is a good benchmark and gives the body and the <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>mind a rest from daily activities. Reason 2 is that I can be grouchy without enough sleep and I <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>want to be able to focus during my 9am lectures.</p> <p>9). <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Volunteer at least 3 hours a week</span></strong></p> <p><span style="white-space: pre; font-weight: bold;"> </span>This isn't a biggy for me but I thought I'd add it as I have begun working at a charity shop on a <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>Friday doing volunteer work as they are always looking for help so I thought as Friday is my day <span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>off it gives me something constructive to do for people in need.</p> <p>There it is. My 9 rules for this month. Let's see how I do!&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Update soon!</p>

New post! Health Month - End Of February Review

<p>The end of another month on Health Month! Much more difficult this time round than during January. Somehow, thanks to my amazing team, I finished the month with 10 life points and 3,271 points! I got a lot of help from those guys and they helped me to get through the month!</p> <p>From my summary which can be found here,</p> <p><a href="http://healthmonth.com/learn/26673">http://healthmonth.com/learn/26673</a></p> <p>It is clear that the rule I failed on (literally got an 'F' like back in School!) was having 2 protein shakes a day every day. Every other rule was 'B' and above! Therefore, I think I will make a few changes to my rules for March's game.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
