Hello there! I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed their weekend. Today, I’m recapping week 2 of Elf for Health – I can’t believe the challenge is halfway over already!
read my week 1 recap here.
So, I’m two weeks in and still completing all the challenges. Monday’s challenge happened a day late, but I’m still counting it.
So, a quick recap:
Monday: Send a handwritten note.
I didn’t get a chance to send them out on Monday, but on Tuesday I dropped a Christmas card or two in the mail. I only sent out a couple this year, but this is a habit I definitely want to get into – no one really sends snail mail anymore, so I think people appreciate cards or handwritten letters that much more.
Tuesday: Eat the rainbow.
As summed up in my WIAW last week – I did my best to eat fresh produce and veggies throughout the day. I didn’t cover blue or purple, but I think I ate enough green and orange to make up for it!
Wednesday: Go makeup free today!
I didn’t capture a picture, but it basically looked liked this, except I put in contacts at some point:
Thursday: Workout with a buddy.
On Thursday, I roped Eric into taking a walk with me and the pug. It wasn’t exactly the best day to do it – we had a few random 10 (50) degree days, so all the snow we got a few weeks ago melted. This led to a TON of mud everywhere – Atti definitely needed a bath when we got home. At least we all got some fresh air though!
Leave an Operation Beautiful note.
Someone would have stumbled across this in the ladies room at the gym on Friday night!
Saturday: Clean your fridge and pantry.
Considering that we’ve only been in our apartment for about 3 months, I haven’t had a chance to truly muck up the fridge or the pantry yet. I did do some organizing though:
Sunday: Make a list of 20 things you’re grateful for.
Also included on my list: being in a loving relationship, a cute apartment keeping a roof over my head; my strong sense of self, my physical health and abilities, chocolate…the list goes on. It’s always nice to sit back and reflect about all the great things you have, isn’t it?
And that covers week 2…bring on week 3!
My elf for the first two weeks was Clara from Southern Thintellect, and my buddy to round out the challenge is Nicole from Fruit n Fitness. I’m sure we’ll be pushing and motivating each other through the final two weeks of the challenge!
Have a great Monday!
