Weeks 1 to 6

OPTIONAL: Add your own goal

What else do YOU want to achieve by the end of the challenge? It could be a new habit, like 'no snacking after dinner', or drinking water. Or a specific goal, like fitting into an item of clothing, or losing a certain number of pounds. This mini-challenge is completely optional, and can be anything YOU want, but make it something achievable. You can set yourself a different goal each week if you want.
