So, now that I've reached this level of enlightenment, I'm joining an online weight loss challenge called Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. Not because I'd like my jeans to be a bit less tight, although that is admittedly a nice side benefit, but because I want to be healthier, have more energy and protect myself as much as possible from health related problems that run in my family like diabetes and heart disease.
I don't have a specific weight goal I'm trying to reach. My goals will be:
- Eat a healthy breakfast every day.
- Pack a lunch for work (side benefit, more $ for Christmas presents!).
- Avoid all the sweet snacks around the office.
- Exercise a few nights a week at the gym I joined recently, started going and then got sick and never got back on the wagon.
I'll blog my progress weekly - any tips appreciated!
Update: Day One. Not the best start... I did eat a good breakfast and brought my lunch to work, but then someone brought peppermint bark into the office - I didn't pass, and I won't be exercising tonight unless you consider decorating the Christmas tree and then writing a post about Thanksgiving a workout. Ah well. Two out of four. I'm going to go ahead and see the glass half full today.
