In the past few months, I have gained some weight. My larger sized dress pants now fit a little snug. I knew something needed to be done.
When my sister called suggesting a weight loss challenge, I enthusiastically said yes! We have done this before, and I enjoyed it. I like to have a good challenge that I can overcome. I have a few goals in mind for this weight loss challenge:
My first goal is not to come in last. From that sentence alone you can figure out what happened the last time we did this.
With the exception of Zumba classes, I have never liked exercising. While I still love them, I frequently find excuses not to go. I am also attempting to save money on gym memberships and try doing more cardio at home.
In the past, my neurologist recommended not doing anything too radical. Someone I know made the simple observation that I don’t eat many vegetables. When I was attempting to come up with a strategy, I thought that would be a good place to start. I am also going to eat more healthy fats such as the ones in avocados, sardines, and salmon. I have found an exercise plan online. I want to follow it for 30 days.
My first day was yesterday and I need to report in on Fridays. Maybe this would be a good blog theme on Fridays for the next few weeks. Do you have any good weight loss suggestions?
