Work Harder at muscle toning.

February 5 2013;
I planned to be at my healthy weight last year but it has not happened yet. After I became overweight I started to take it easy since every metabolic measurement was normal and I was no longer tired, no back pain or knee pain in the mornings. I could walk up the stairs without being out of breath, I took it easy and it shows. For all 2012 I have stayed stagnant between 169-160 lb. I ate health meals 70 % of the time and indulged on baked goods , nuts and breads 30% ...

I planned to be at my healthy weight last year but it has not happened yet. After I became overweight I started to take it easy since every metabolic measurement was normal and I was no longer tired, no back pain or knee pain in the mornings. I could walk up the stairs without being out of breath, I took it easy and it shows. For all 2012 I have stayed stagnant between 169-160 lb. I ate health meals 70 % of the time and indulged on baked goods , nuts and breads 30% of the time and that 30 % have derailed my good intentions of being healthy. This 5% winter challenge, I am going to get off being happy with the over weight BMI and work to get a healthy one. The plan, is to track my food intake, drink water, have a balanced exercise schedule, currently I am a cardio-exercise junkie with little strength training and very little relaxation. I will seek help when needed and offer support to my team throughout this challenge.
I will try to live in the moment ( exercise, eat healthy, drink enough water and get enough sleep one day at a time) and let tomorrow look after itself. I have a physical check up in July I want to be in my healthy weight goal by them ( 145- 135 lb).

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my "Catching Up" blog and for your comments. emoticon
Yesterday I managed to actually complete the "How to Start Exercising - 20 minute Full Length Workout" that was on my morning Spark email. I thought the timing of that email was pretty good. I also completed a Paul Eugene 10 minute chair workout, it was mostly cardio and he's pretty intense. I had to take a few breathers along the way for both but did manage to finish so I think I'm on my way... emoticon
I think the secret (if there is one) is to stop telling myself I should be exercising more and actually start doing it. I know it will get easier as I develop a regular routine again, it's easy to get busy and let the exercise sessions slide, especially this time of year.
