|2020 will be the year...|
December 30, 2019
... that I finally lose weight (for good) and get healthier. I will make it happen.
I have said this every year, especially when I feel like I've gotten worse and not better. I hope the new year will finally be the year that I can do something and stick to it.
My plans for now...
My eating will improve beginning Wednesday, January 1. The first step is to just be aware and try to talk myself away from eating if I'm not really hungry. Then hopefully by Monday, I'll be ready to set a loose schedule of my best times to eat. I will also cut back a lot on the amount of junk I eat (which I've had more of in the past week than I had in the previous month). After that, I'll think of something.
I need more water and less soda. I had been averaging about 400oz of water and one 20oz bottle of diet soda a week, which I thought was okay, but I might've had less water and the equivalent of 2L of diet soda in the past week, which is bad (for me). I need to see if I can take at least a few weeks of drinking just water before treating myself to a carbonated drink. Maybe drink herbal tea if I want flavor.
As for activity, I am so out of shape that I think the first step will be to just move around for at least 5-10 minutes for every 50-55 minutes that I sit. Then to add stairs (once on day 1, up to seven times by day 7). Then maybe after a week, start using the exercise bike in the basement. After that, who knows.
I am not giving up, no matter how many times I have to start over.
