Archive for the ‘Diet’ Category

I don’t know why I did it but yesterday I hopped on the scale, the most evil household device known to woman (note I didn’t say known to man because we all know most men don’t care about their weight).  It told me I weighed 207lbs, UGH!  So I decided I had to do something about it.

I’ve tried tons of diets and they work as long as I follow them to the letter.  Unfortunately they are also boring so I tend not to follow them that strictly for long and then they stop being so effective.  I don’t eat a ton of bad foods so changing what I eat isn’t going to do much for me.  My main issue is that my life style is very sedentary.  I either sit in front of my torch, sit in front of my easel, or sit at the table making jewelry.  So getting off my butt more is going to be my main focus.

I am hoping that having total strangers read about my efforts will help me keep up my exercising.  I own an eliptical and spent 20 min on it yesterday and 20 min on it today.  I will try to blog at least once a week on my current efforts and how many days I spent time on the eliptical or in spring/summer on some other exercise activity.  I am in Wisconsin so this time of year outdoor activities aren’t fun for me as I don’t like skiing, sledding, or other winter activities.

Wish me luck!  And if anyone else is working on losing weight or getting fit and tracking it via a blog please put a link to your blog in a comment so we can all keep track of each others efforts.
