I have gained 15 lbs in the last year... I seriously want to make some changes for the better in my life - not just to lose the weight but also live a healthier lifestyle.
I am a notorious junk food junkie. My biggest problem is I'll be good for a while (exercising and eating better) and then I'll fall off the wagon (binge on the couch with a bag of cookies, tub of icecream and raft of potato chips)
I think I need a little support and maybe if I log it on here, it will keep me motivated. Feel free to play along and we can all get healthier together... (Mom I need your help to make a button)
My goal is:
To exercise at least 20-30 minutes everyday - To start I'm using Jeopardy.
While Jeopardy is on, I am going to walk (briskly) in place with my weights and on the commercials I am going to jog. This way I exercise my body and mind.
On the weekends I will take part in some sort of active activity, be it hiking, biking or even just an hour walking around the mall shopping. I also have several fitness videos (Tony Little is scary but puts together a good workout) that I'd like to do more often, but I think I'll stick with the Jeopardy walk and see how it goes
Drink more water: This will also help with another goal of mine - drink less pop
Eat better: I've already started this, eating a better lunch at work, but I have to stay away from the candy machine. I am no longer going to keep goodies (such as chips, cookies, chocolate etc.) in the house. Instead I am going to go out every Saturday and buy one small treat - just enough for that day - as a reward for being good
Things I've done good: Not been to McDonald's (or any other fast food restaurant) for a week
Things I've done bad: eaten half a bag of cookies in one sitting and chased it with some sour cream and onion chips.
So 35 lbs and 12 inches to go
Now.. does anyone have any ideas how to get this guy to lose some weight?
