This is probably a standard resolution on everyone's list. I know it's been on mine for probably 20 years! You know it's as simple as exercise and eating right, so why is it so hard? I wish I knew the answer. I'm willing to work at, I know I need to in order to have the life I want.
So last night was the weigh in for the local Biggest Loser contest. 329.4 - The number didn't surprise me, I've been at that number for awhile. The competition is for 10 weeks and the winner gets a cash prize. I'm hoping that will just add to my motivation. Last year's winner lost 17% of their body weight, so my goal is to lose 20% by the last weigh in. All I have to do is exercise and watch what I eat. I saw a nutritionist in the fall and I think she said that my calorie intake should be about 1700 calories. I'm not positive on that but I can't find the paperwork she gave us so I'm going on memory! (yet another thing I want to work on)
Normally I would try to come up with a elaborate exercise schedule and routine and planned out menu. But I'm going to try it a different way this time. I'm going to make a goal of exercising every day and watching what I eat- preferably an hour a day and keeping a food log. But if I don't do both of those every day that's ok. Weekly weight loss goal is 7 lbs to get to the 20% lost. I think if I'm CONSISTENT I can do it. That's the key CONSISTENCY. I just have to remember that.
