Work Harder at muscle toning.

February 5 2013;
I planned to be at my healthy weight last year but it has not happened yet. After I became overweight I started to take it easy since every metabolic measurement was normal and I was no longer tired, no back pain or knee pain in the mornings. I could walk up the stairs without being out of breath, I took it easy and it shows. For all 2012 I have stayed stagnant between 169-160 lb.

I planned to be at my healthy weight last year but it has not happened yet. After I became overweight I started to take it easy since every metabolic measurement was normal and I was no longer tired, no back pain or knee pain in the mornings. I could walk up the stairs without being out of breath, I took it easy and it shows. For all 2012 I have stayed stagnant between 169-160 lb. I ate health meals 70 % of the time and indulged on baked goods , nuts and breads 30% of the time and that 30 % have derailed my good intentions of being healthy. This 5% winter challenge, I am going to get off being happy with the over weight BMI and work to get a healthy one. The plan, is to track my food intake, drink water, have a balanced exercise schedule, currently I am a cardio-exercise junkie with little strength training and very little relaxation. I will seek help when needed and offer support to my team throughout this challenge.
I will try to live in the moment ( exercise, eat healthy, drink enough water and get enough sleep one day at a time) and let tomorrow look after itself. I have a physical check up in July I want to be in my healthy weight goal by them ( 145- 135 lb).

We Californians can watch the Weather Channel for images of winter's brutality unleashed upon our fellow Americans and thank our lucky stars we don't have to contend with it.
