Two weeks ago I started exercising and watching my eating in earnest. I was so excited because I lost about 3 pounds. Last week was a bust for several reasons. I felt bad and overslept, consequently didn’t exercise most days, and ate too much…And gained all the 3 pounds back. Sigh.
Well, this week is a new beginning. I absolutely have to lost 15 pounds in the next few months, for several reasons. I hoped to have it done by mid-August but that’s not happening, barring a hunger strike. *L* I know I’ll lose it slowly because I don’t diet. I’ve slid into bad lifestyle habits after several years of practicing good ones, and so my goal is not to diet per se as much as it is to regain a healthful lifestyle. I know I’ve posted about it before, but I’m serious this time.
As proof of seriousness, I’m going to post updates here…Not because I think any of you give a rip, but for the accountability. If I have to tell the world how I’ve done each week, maybe it will be more of an incentive to keep on the straight and narrow. Each Monday I’ll just post a general update on whether I’ve met my goals or not. The goals being, exercise 5X, drink at least 2 quarts of water daily, eat only when I’m hungry and only till I’m full, and major on fresh raw fruits and veggies. I’m not going to be legalistic, I just want to generally stay within those guidelines as I develop good habits again.
