The All Day Blog: Part 2: Losing Weight
For the past year or so, basically since after my wedding, I have been packing on weight like I was getting ready to hibernate through a nuclear winter. Since the wedding, I've gained about 20 to 25 lbs I'm guessing (I have to guess, I have no scale). All my cloths still fit, remarkably, but do feel a little tighter.
This has been a real Achilles heel for me, all my life really. I'm not a weight lifter, I hate the repetitiveness of the gym, and I haven't been really associated with any sort of sports organization worth a damn. My life, as it is, is not inclined to being active. My eating habits are likely going to kill me, if I do not actually do my best to try and change things.
So today is the day. I've started some things over the past week that can really go a long way to getting better at this. I drink 10 571ml bottles of water a day. I don't hedge when it comes to doing anything particularly active. I still haven't been able to kick the bad eating habits yet, but today for lunch there's fruit and vegetables waiting with my name on them.
I honestly don't know how to do it right though. I have to admit, I just do not like healthier foods as much as my favorite "ketchup-cheese-and-bacon" combos. I can figure out being active, but that is all for not if I don't couple it with better eating habits.
I'll update this topic over the next week or so.
