Just One Week

We had a temporary leader for our meeting last week, who suggested we think of one thing we can try and do for just one week. Just to see if we can. This could be addressing a bad habit, or trying to pick up a good habit. it could be increasing excercise or decreasing food. It could be swapping something bad for something good. it could be anything at all, as long as it would help you on your weight loss journey. All you had to do was commit to doing that thing for one week. Not for a month or a year, or forever, a week. 7 days. How hard can that be?
Various commitments were made to keeping within points, tracking everything, working out everyday, eating more fruit and veg, etc. I chose to drink 2L water every day(I managed 5 out of 7 days which im counting as a bit of a victory for me).

Anyway I thought that would be a nice little challenge type thing to do on here.
So come on, one weeks commitment to something-what will it be? Try something new? or get back into the groove with an old habit thats fallen by the wayside?

Post what youre going to do on here so we can all get inspiration from it!

For this week I am committing myself to snacking solely on fruit and veg. I've been very snacky this last week and havent been able to stay away from bread and butter and biscuits. I'm expecting quite the gain at WI tonight.

So when I went to do my weekly shop today I bypassed the crisps and cereal bars- all the carby things which I can get a hit of for a couple of points, but which send the cravings soaring. Instead I got strawberries and apples and peaches and nectarines and plums and pomegranates and bananas and a pineapple. 


Lets see how many just one weeks I can string together...


  1. Great Idea!!! I commit to watching my portion sizes! As I always struggle with this, and it's always the first WW rule I break...I stop measuring my portions....So for this week, I am going to try and measure it all...even if it's just a small snack of mixed nuts or whatever. No more mindless eating. :)

  2. Sounds like a plan orange kitteh :D
    See you this time next week and we'll see how we've fared...
