How did I get here again? Well, in reality I didn't let it go too far before jumping back on the healthy train. I was extremely successful on my first attempt so I shouldn't have any problems doing it again, right? The problem is what I am sure will be a shock to all of you: lack of exercise and bad eating habits! No one here knows what I am talking about! :-P I have been putting other things ahead of my health as if anything should be more important・ow can you take care of all of your responsibilities if you can't take care of yourself? The great news is that I have control to modify my situation. Here is my new motto:
My Health.My Life.My Choice
Now all I need is a good theme song. One I mentally hear as I am walking down hallways and corridors. You all know・ike Saturday Night Fever. Stayin' Aliiiiiiive!!!!! That's actually a good one since that it is why we are all here. To stay alive, or at least be the most fit while we are alive.
I am starting off again at 161 and want to get down to a healthy 147. I know what you are thinking, that is such an arbitrary number. Not really. 150 = a bit too big and 145 = a bit too small. That simple.
What you really came here for. Come on, sing along!
"Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I'm a woman's man, no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm.
I've been kicked around since I was born.
And now it's all right, it's O.K.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.
Whether you're a brother
Or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel the city breakin'
And ev'rybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha,
Fresh New Goals
1. Eating Clean! I know it is difficult to do this 100% of the time, but I can certainly accomplish this about 50% of the time and slowly build up to at least 75% of the day
2. Don't use the weekend as an excuse to go all Willy-Nilly! Control portions and content of food regardless of the day and environment.
3. Stop ignoring weight training. I know that the results are fantabulous, so I will stop making excuses. I will be like Nike and "Just Do It"
4. I would like to lose about 13 or 14 lbs.
5. I will encourage someone else to start living a healthier lifestyle based on my results.
I am going clean people! Lean meats and poultry, seafood, and fresh fruits and veggies. I will not always go for coffee in the morning. Sometimes I will sub for green tea or something of the sort. I can't give up coffee, at least not yet. Small steps, young grasshopper! I am already loving whole wheat anything but I need to incorporate more of it in my diet. The main thing will be planning, planning, planning. Cooking 3-4 meals at once and preparing what I will eat for the next day. Also, if I know I will be eating out, I will visit the restaurant's website to pick out a healthy meal beforehand.
I will continue to work out 5 days a week but I need to mix it up a bit.
2 days of weight training including my arms, abs, and legs (I will move this up to 3 days when I can manage 2 days with no problem)
3 days of low impact aerobics (2 days will be the same days as weight training)
2 days of high impact aerobics. This will jar my body into r
Kids: One perfect angel, my BabyCakes!
I love football and my favorite NFL team is the Pittsburgh Steelers (where I am originally from). My personal belief is that Fall is not a season, Football is! I hope to lose a few pounds before the season begins and maintain that loss throughout with the support of everyone on this site. I tried to encourage friends and family to join me in this battle of the bulge but to no avail. So I thought, why don't I find people who are already soldiers in this war! My sister suggested I come to this site and I already love it!
Win by Losing!
