New Year, New Me
Thursday, January 20, 2011
Today I am taking charge. I am making a new committment to a healthy lifestyle. I am determined to reach my goal this time, after making it halfway at one time, only to gain it all back after beginning a new relationship and a couple of very stressful semesters in college. I reset my goals on here today, and in this blog I will outlne a couple of short-term goals I will strive for to help me accomplish my long term goal of losing about 25 pounds initially. If my body lets me, I will aim for 30 or 35 after I reach the goal of 25. I know I can do it, because I've done so well in the past. The biggest obstacle is my lack of a routine. I can't keep a regular sleep, meal, or exercise schedule because my work schedule is all over the place. But I will take the following steps to get me back on track:
1. Commit at least 10 minutes a day to exercise. (I will increase this when I get accustomed to fitting this in my schedule.
2. Track my nutrition every day.
3. Drink at least 64 ounces of water daily.
I am also going to try to replace some of the carbs in my diet with fruits and veggies. This will be hard because my favorite foods are breads, pastas, and potatos!
Thank you to my SparkFriends for your support, and I hope that I can do the same for you. Here's to a healthy 2011!
