I doubt anyone reads here anymore. If so, I’m hoping all (or any) of you will help keep me accountable as I take on my new exercise and healthy eating plan. I’ve added
a few some pounds to my frame over the past couple of years and I need to remove them. My diet isn’t terrible, but my activity level is shameful. I spend all day sitting behind a desk and then come home and do the same.
Keeping myself motivated is going to be my biggest challenge. I am really good about exercising for the first few weeks, then I get busy, sick, tired, or whatever and skip a day or two. A day or two turns into a week and before I know it, I’m right back where I started. So I’m going public in an effort to stick to it this time. I’m taking a ‘vacation of a lifetime’ next fall and I really want to stay on course. I’m hoping that by posting my activity levels weekly, my short and long term weight goals, and current weight every other week, I can stay motivated to reach my goals.
Here’s my beginning info: Current weight: 238.5 lbs
Weight Goals: 199 lbs by December 25, 2013; 170lbs before September 23, 2014
Exercise goals: Short-term – at least 20 minutes of activity 3-4 times a week; Long-term – I’d like to start running, so maybe a 5K by next spring?
