Week One was drink more water. The focus was to try to drink a glass of water every hour and a half, until it became habit for me to drink much more water. I'm definitely drinking more than I did before, but I'm still only averaging three or four glasses, and yesterday (after three weeks) I fell off the bandwagon completely and drunk no glasses of water at all. I think a little more effort is required here. I don't think I need to drink 10 glasses a day, that's a bit extreme, but I would aim for about six glasses.
Week Two was to help the children remember to feed the fish before they brush their teeth, morning and evening. They've been doing really well. We're two weeks in, and they've even been reminding me on occasion. Yesterday was the first day that both of them forgot (and me). What happened yesterday?
Week Three was to get the children doing a "ten-minute tidy-up" in the morning before starting to play. We set the timer straight after tooth-brushing, I give them a job to do (hoovering the sitting room, wiping the cupboards, dusting the shelves), set the timer and off we go. This has gone quite well this week. C is enjoying the jobs. Bug needs supervision and support, as she's only two, and very easily distracted, quickly losing interest and playing instead.
