- Back off of Soda- I confess I drink at least one soda a day. That is a ton of sugar, salt and caffeine and do I really need it?
- Drink more water- I am horrible about drinking water! I can not stand it- but I need to drink more so my goal is to start small and drink at least 8 oz a day and then work up during the course of this journey to drinking more then that.
- quit with the sweets- While I eat healthier I still battle with a sweet tooth- my goal is to park that craving
- exercise more- I am going to come up with an exercise routine and stick to it!
I will keep all of this by keeping a fitness journal. I will keep track of what I eat each day, what exercises I do and how I feel. I will also keep track of my weight during this time. I am 15lbs away from my target weight so hopefully by making these minor adjustments I can reach that by summer time! The main reason I have a set target weight is not so I look good in a swimsuit- but so I can back off on taking hypertension medicine. My biggest goal of this whole thing is to not have to take any BP medicines.
Now for the bad part- This is me back in July- I haven’t changed at all stayed the same weight wise and these are my starting numbers (no laughing now!):
waist- 34 inches
My target weight is 130. I hope by achieving the above 4 goals that I will reach that target weight. Maybe then I can back off on my blood pressure medicine!
