Alright, I've got to be completely honest here. The reason I wanted to eat healthier was to get healthier. I suppose that's kind of a given... But it hasn't completely happened yet. I know it's not something that just happens overnight. But, from now on I am coming from a bit of a different angle with the whole approach. :)
So, I've set a goal to not only eat healthier but be healthier. So, I would like to lose 15 pounds by the end of summer. Or otherwise until my sister-in-law's wedding. :) So, not only do I want to lose the weight, but I want to do it in a healthy way. So it will stay off and I will be healthier overall.
Realistically what does that mean for my life? Not too sure yet...but I am going to keep a daily log of what I eat. (Something I've done off and on for digestive reasons...but this time I am going to be loyal to it!) I still want to be able to eat things though. Like, if I am at a birthday party, I don't want to be the one on a "diet" who can't eat the cake. (And proceeds to make a huge deal out of it!) So, again, not too sure what this will actually look like. But I will still make yummies at home, and just eat them in much more moderation. :)
This I know for sure though: I will eat more veggies. I will eat more fruit. I will eat more fiber. (From nature and some Benefiber supplement.) I will do more exercises regularly, including but not limited to: Bike riding, Walking, Hiking and some little free weight-lifting. So again, the goal is not only losing some weight, but getting and being healthier. For real this time. :)
So, yeah....I also put a ticker so you all can keep me accountable for the weight loss too. It's on the left sidebar. :) I will try to update it every day or two. So it stays up-to-date!
Ok, just found a pretty sweet site that has a daily food/exercise log online and it's all free. So here's the link.
PS I am going to probably need some support though. So, feel free to give invisible high-fives and send prayers my way too! :) Thanks!
