Tag, You're It: The Salad a Day Challenge

At the end of last year I tagged you in the New Years Goal Tag. I challenged you to list three simple goals. Now I'm tagging you again with another challenge and following up with how I did in January.

I kept up with my goals for January 2011:

1) Organization:
I organized every chance I could. I can't wait to do more!
2) Work: I received an amazing out-of-the blue offer from linked-in and applied for many more.
Antique Store Booth: I made over $100 in gross sales, it's an encouraging start!

Now I Challenge You to Eat a Salad a Day with Me:

One of my resolutions was to eat more vegetables and move more. I remember that last year when I made a point to eat a salad a day, I weighed less and felt better. So now I'm setting up that habit again. I want you to join in.

Print out this calendar and mark a big red X on each day that you eat a salad. By the time you've eaten your 28 salads for February, you may keep up the routine for life!

(If you already eat a salad a day, eat two. Or eat another serving of vegetables for dinner. Challenge yourself!

1. Just eat one salad a day, anytime that is easiest. Make it a big one!
2. No dressing! All you need is a little olive oil or low fat vinaigrette.
3. Make it as colorful as possible by adding a variety of vegetables. Maximize the nutrition.

Bonus Benefit:  I haven't had a cold in a year, I thank my diet full of fruits and veggies.
In High School I was sick monthly from eating fast food and barely any vegetables!

Let's Hit It: Don't let 2011 be yet another year you don't accomplish your goals. I love how everyone seems to be putting their all into truly accomplishing what they set out to accomplish this year. This salad challenge will help you accomplish your weight-loss and healthier-living goals. I'm also starting an Organization Link Share so we can inspire each other to keep organized!

Let's own 2011, Let's accomplish our Goals and Dreams!

  1. Both are challenges I need to get on board with - salads and getting organized.
    I am working on the organizing, and adding exercise to my day.

  2. I love this idea!! I started eating a ton more vegetables recently and can feel the difference, I used to eat salad every day for lunch...I am going to have to pick that habit up again!

  3. ahhhh this is so weird! i just made one! http://www.flickr.com/photos/invormation/5407597789/

  4. I seriously need to eat more veggies in general - not sure if I could eat a salad every day though =) Getting organized is definitely a priority as well!

  5. Dogsmom: I definitely need to find a way to exercise. My only daily exercise is cleaning! Ha!

  6. Cara: Delicious looking salad! Gorgeous photography, too!

  7. A La Modern: If you couldn't eat a salad, perhaps steamed vegetables? It's so hard to get in those 5 servings a day...

  8. I like salads but I get bored with them after a while. my current habit is steamed and/or roasted veggies. this week it is yuca, butternut squash, mushroom, sweet onion, broccoli, zucchini and brussel sprouts. mixed with about 3 oz chicken on top. this, I don't get tired of. yummy. I prepare all of the veggies on Sundays and eat them for lunches during the week. so easy.....

  9. My almost daily salad includes this every time
    salad or coleslaw blend
    a handful of craisins
    and my fav Anchovies
    I know it may sound gross to some but I dont use dressing and this makes it have a lot of flavor

  10. Christine: That sounds delicious! I need to try that!

    CRY: Sounds delicious AND healthy. Yum!

  11. I have been eating daily salads lately...but I have a habit of adding lots of goodies to them! You salad looks so fresh and I'm loving the owl cup! :)

  12. Wow, lots of really good news. :) And the salad looks yummy. We've had one several times this week already.

  13. Michelle: It's healthier to load 'em up with as many colorful vegetables as possible. I simply never have them around. I usually can't get to eating them in time, it's hard!

    (Or, I buy too few and eat them up too quickly...)
