Winter is still in full force, but spring break is just around the corner. Spring break conjures up ideas of a food challenge and many folks have asked us if we have one in the works. Of course!

While a food challenge is a fantastic way to get back on track, create good habits, and learn more about what works for you, it’s also important to remember that we can work to improve our food outside of a challenge. For some, they do better improving their food efforts without the structure and overhead of a food challenge.

I know what some of you are saying – it’s WAY harder to do this than when I’m told what to do. I agree, for some people, a challenge works very well. But for others, baby steps get them the results they want – and I see tons of merit in baby steps.

Over the next month, we challenge you to identify one area of your food that has slid the wrong direction. We want a SMALL thing. Take a moment to give it some thought and when you have it, post to comments. 

Here’s an example. 

I drink Americanos, black, with no cream, everyday. When ski season rolls around I often order an 8oz latte for the car ride up to the mountains. This occasional treat throughout the ski months has always been satisfying, yet something that enters my life for a few short months out of every year. On a rare occasion, I will order a mocha. The feeling of sipping my latte as we drive up the mountains in our snow gear gives me the warm fuzzies and makes me feel good about the world in general – and I never feel guilty about this decision.

Lately, for reasons I am not sure, I started ordering more lattes throughout the week. It’s as if I don’t have control of my lips when I make my order and “latte” just rolls off my tongue. While this may seem like a small thing – it’s not, it adds up, just like any other food decision. My conscious effort is to go back to making lattes my ski ritual, and not my everyday ritual. 

What is your one small thing you can dial back in for the next month? Post to comments.
