Week 2

Get busy with pursuing your newly defined dream

Guidelines:
You probably already feel better and more energetic after you decided to take part in this challenge. Now, in order to make your dream come true, you first of all need to learn as much as possible about the subject. Do the research, get at least a general understanding of what exactly you want and what is needed to get there. Nowadays, in the age of IT, there're plenty of resources out there: (e-)books, free on-line trainings, blogs with articles, discussion forums and videos on Youtube where you could get quite a lot of knowledge. My preference - video trainings which are quit easy to do. Many of them are divided into 5-10 minutes sessions. By doing at least this much each day would take you quite far away from where you've been before. Give it a shot and you'll be a mile closer to the desired result.

Week 7

If you like sugar, stop adding it to your tea/coffee

Guidelines:
Good news, it is possible to start drinking hot drinks without sugar (which then leads to autmatic reduction of sodas consumption)! What you do: you stop adding sugar to your tea or coffee for just a week. Exactly this much time your body needs to get used to the new taste. After that, you will automatically avoid adding sugar because everything but a plain water tastes too sweet. You also get a BONUS: sodas will be unbearably sweet, too!
