Fitbit Healthy Habits Challenge

I’ve never been great at the whole ‘being healthy’ thing. I usually don’t drink enough water, I don’t exercise consistently–pretty much the closest thing I am to athletic is the fact that I wear running leggings instead of normal ones because they’re thicker. But who says I have to stay like that?

Four weeks, a healthy habit every day. Take on the challenge with me.

Fitbit recently released a Healthy Habits challenge on their blog, focusing on four categories: stress, nutrition, sleep, and fitness. Instead of following the challenges all in order like they did, I’ve assigned myself a mix of the four for each week, starting today and ending July 21st.


  • Meditate for ten minutes
  • Add an extra vegetable to your plate
  • Wake up earlier and get a head start to the day
  • Add 1,000 steps to your daily goal
  • Go for a fifteen minute walk outside
  • Stock up on healthy snacks
  • Go to bed fifteen minutes earlier


  • Drink a cup of tea
  • Drink a glass of water before each meal
  • Avoid eating for 2 hours before bed
  • Exercise for fifteen minutes
  • Listen to music that makes you happy
  • Put your meals on a smaller plate
  • Lower the temperature before sleeping


  • Do an equal breathing exercise
  • Keep half of your plate green
  • Do yoga before bed
  • Walk/bike two miles
  • Write about your day in a journal
  • Replace candy/sugar with fruit
  • Drink 64 ounces of water


  • Take the time to socialize
  • Do 50 crunches in the morning
  • Take note of portion sizes
  • Exercise for a half hour
  • Stretch at your desk
  • Skip all screen time for one hour before bed
  • Go for a walk on your lunch break

I’ll be sharing results after each week and telling you if I succeeded, failed, liked it, disliked it, and so on. There’s enough days in this challenge that if I stay consistent, I can do this rotation again throughout the summer and finish right before I move in for college. Wish me luck!
