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.
3)
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.

 [Click the Calendar thumbnail to get the full-size printable image]

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!

  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.....

  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...)

  16. The claim of the diet is that, by strictly following the protocol a person can lose a
    lot of fat, without loss of muscle. You can use HCG Diet if your Body Mass Index value is not lower than 20.

    HCG diet drops are considered safe plus
    they are produced in a lab where proper hygiene is maintained.
    The HCG protocol for weight loss is one of the hottest fads right now largely due to it being mentioned in a book by a dubious author named Kevin Trudeau.
    Do your research, weigh the risks and benefits, and then decide whether the HCG diet is your best
    option or simply another danger to your health.

    In fact, by the time an individual reaches his or her forties, stress and
    anxiety tend to build up. There are a number of ways that samples are obtained.
    Prenatal diagnosis for Down syndrome can be done in the
    first-trimester and is combined with ultrasonographic nuchal translucency measurement, plasma protein A (PAPP-A) and human chorionic gonadotrophin (free beta-h - CG)
    measurements. It burns the stored fat rather than muscle mass, in accordance with Simeons' research.
    They're both the same - a chain of carbon molecules with a varying numbers of hydrogen bonds.
