Healthy Living (Week 4)

Over the next few months I have a goal of dropping 40lbs (195lbs goal weight) and then maintaining a healthy lifestyle from this point forward. I need to do this. I need to do it for myself, my family, and ultimately to be a good steward for my Lord. I had this same goal last year and it never materialized. No regrets. I just need to move forward!

I still do not believe I am going all out but I did lose another pound this week. One is better than none but I still want to step it up! Steady plodding does work though!

Starting Weight: 235

I had a little bit better week this past week. I ate better for the most part but only hit two of my workouts. As a result, I did lose one pound this week. It was a start and  I know what needs to happen to step it up!

I struggled to get going this past week. I did not eat well and only hit two of my workouts. As a result, I did not lose any weight this week. It’s certainly not what I wanted but I know what needs to change.

Continuing The Journey To Healthy Living

It has almost been 1 month since I last posted about healthy living. I have only lost 2 pounds over the last several weeks but have made some important strides towards a more healthy lifestyle.

Starting Weight: 227lbs

Current Weight: 225lbs

Goal Weight: 190lbs

Positive Steps

1. I found a running partner. This was something that I knew that I needed to do for a while but finding someone to run with you at 6:15am is not easy! Over the past few weeks we have increased our mileage from 1.6 miles three days each week to 3.5 miles. It doesn’t feel good yet (sore muscles and shortness of breath) but we are getting there!

2. I have started counting calories again. Even though I picked up my exercise over the past several weeks, I did not eat well. Most people will tell you that losing weight is all about calories in vs. calories out. This is so true.

The Journey To Healthy Living

A phrase keeps running through my mind: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” I guess that sums up where I am now in my journey to healthy living. At first, I thought posting my progress on this blog would push me to eat well and exercise on a consistent basis. The problem I have realized is that there must be a deeper motivation. I think I have begun to tap into that motivation and I thought I would begin posting about my weekly progress once again. Here are my numbers for today.

Current Weight: 227lbs

Goal Weight: 195lbs

Weight To Lose: 32lbs
