OK so this post starts off on a negative note and I want it to be a positive one. This year I want to continue to be better than the last so I have made a few resolutions that I am going to share with you.
- 1. Do what I can to make the people around me lives better.
- 2. Be more positive and focus on the good things.
- 3. Work on being healthier and taking care of myself.
This month I am going to share several posts on how I am working towards these goals. My main focus though is going to by #3 getting healthy. I have been severely overweight for the past 10 years or so and am tired of literally sitting on my fat but and doing nothing about it.
I have made several changes like almost giving up soda, reducing the amount of fast food I eat, exercising more, and eating more vegetables but so far these have only been band aids. I decided that this month I am really going to focus on getting healthy, eating better, and exercising more. My goal is to lose 10 pounds by the end of the month, do a major workout at least every other day (alternating with a minor workout), and cook more healthy meals at home.
As I go on my journey and share my experiences please remember that everyone is different what works for me may not work for you and what works for you may not work for me. I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. What I will be sharing is my own personal experiences based upon my life style and my research. I encourage you to do your own research and find what works for you.
My first recommendation is to go to your doctor and get a check- up. Find out what your basic health and possible limitations are.I recently did have a check-up and am actually pretty healthy, I am just out of shape and fat. I am lucky that my blood pressure and cholesterol is naturally low (thanks Mom) sadly my butt and gut is unnaturally big and that is what I plan on working on. I am going to focus on the small goals, the small accomplishments that in the end will add up to major accomplishments.
I hope you will join me on my journey and together we will accomplish big things together!
