In the next few days, I will begin a new chapter in my career. This comes after a sad and emotional closure to the previous chapter, which was filled with achievement and success – professionally speaking, but also filled with stress, emotional imbalance and unhealthy habits. I have spent the past few weeks at home, taking stock of all of my fortune (no, I don't mean money), my mistakes and my expectations. I somehow landed on the SP website and got really excited. I had a few glasses of water, weighed myself (105 kg), bought a bamboo steamer and told my wife and daughters (ages 46, 10 & 7) that I want their collective permission to make some changes in our family behavior. It was when I brought home the Wii Fit Plus that we all really got excited…
I have goals:
I want to feel good again.
I want to have energy.
I want to enjoy not just eating, but tasting too.
I want to cook food, not just heat it up.
I want to run.
I want to sweat away 25 kilos of unnecessary body mass at the rate of 1 kilo per week.
I want to distance myself from the chances of diabetes and heart attack.
I want to enjoy my daughters with them, not at them (think about how that was phrased!).
I want to live long enough to do the same with my grandchildren.
I want to be responsible for my health.
I have methods:
I will consume between 1,510 and 1,860 calories per day.
I will monitor, manage and maintain planned levels of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
I will alternate cardiovascular activity with strength training.
I will take comfort and seek motivation in myself, my family and my friends.
You will become my friends and you will help me too.
I will succeed.
Stress is my only enemy.
