As I'm careening towards the big 5-0 it's starting to look like this is a very bad choice. I've always been a "vigorous" person. By that I mean that even if I'm fat I can keep up with others on a long walk or a bicycle ride. Something in my personal style makes admitting to weakness just about impossible, so I can always push myself through the activity. Or I could. At 47 it's getting a little tougher. And I'm tired of my BMI slowly creaping up and up.
So, no big and intimidating resolutions. Starting off seems like the right thing to do and it seems like writing it down here should help. So, a few resolutions to start with:
- Drink coffee black
- Weigh in everyday
- Pick low fat when grocery shopping (lean meats, less cream/cheese based dishes)
- Walk the dog more often
I think that's a starting point. I've been kicking around some more drastic ideas - Alli, gym membership, biking to work... But those are the big resoolutions that seem to overwhelm me.
Any suggestions welcome.
