New Start

Saturday, July 21, 2012

I have spent the last two weeks sick and it has taken a poll on my journey to a better me. I plan on doing cardio and strength training 5 days a week. I hoping to start training for half marathon and find one to run in after the first of the year. I need to develop better eating habits. Since I have been sick the only thing that has tasted good is Doctor Pepper. I tried to limit to one a day but some days it was hard. I plan to limit my sodas for the next few weeks then cut them out completely.
There is a group of us that is in a weight loss contest to see who can lose the most body fat before Thanksgiving. The pot is $240. Its a great motivation to get back on track and become a better me.

    If you find something that tastes good to replace pop let me know. I can't seem to get off the Mountain Dew.
    Your exercise plan makes me tired just reading. Keep it up. I just joined a gym and It's a challenge to just keep going. Sorry you have been sick. Being sick seems to derail me from any changes I'm trying to make and I end up starting over.
    Keep up the good work.

    What I am eating now compared to when I started is so different but to get there the changes have been a series of minuscule ones. Make fractional changes each day and these results will be MASSIVE over the course of just one month,

    You can do it - I know you can

    Good Luck! Try eating a well balanced diet rich in fruit and veggies, your desire for soda will probably diminish.
