Streaking it GREAT – I Do It – Do You?

Streak 1: Out of bed BEFORE 6:00 am Streak 2: Track Sodium Intake

07/07/10 – 7,561 Steps
5 glasses of water
Streak 1: Met: 5:45 am
Streak 2: Stay Tuned

I have a partner now and she is from the great state of Texas! The hard part of all this is that what I do will affect her score too, so if I do not make my goals, it will affect her too! Yikes! I am doing it anyway. The second part of this streak is to track a nutrient. I decided to track my sodium intake – I am not putting a value on it – I am just going to track it.

This is where you find Sodium and what it does for our bodies

Sodium is found mainly in blood plasma and in the fluids outside the body cells. It helps regulate the movement of body fluids in and out of the body cells. Sodium helps your muscles and heart to relax. It is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and helps to regulate blood pressure.

This streak idea is a good one. It is easier to get some successes under your belt because they are small; these successes propel you towards forming healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Is there a streak that you would like to start?

AffirMINTion: I love to start my day before 6 am!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

My mom says that it is good to step out of our comfort zone and explore our world, and I like that!

Life is Minty Fresh!

  1. Hey Mint! Exercise must be more common place for you now as you forgot to list that you walked yesterday too! lol! Love the focus on sodium – I just recently decreased my sodium, sugars and carbs and my blood pressure went from 149/114 to 129/90! (which it hasn’t been that good in over a year!) Looks like we are both on a winning streak! NOTE TO MINTY: Practice real good walking with your Mom and you can come with us on our early am walk!

    1. Wow! Congratulations, Becky on reducing your blood pressure! That is awesome! I will see you tomorrow morning bright and early!

    2. Thanks Deb! Last weekly check-up was even better! It was down to 124 over 80! woohoo! You are certainly part of my good health journey! Thanks Deb!
