But that doesn't work. Making big sweeping changes doesn't work. So my goal is to try something different...a hybrid of sort. I will focus on one big change and one small change. The big change will be a 1-2 month short term goal and the smaill change will be a week by week goal. I will not move on to the next change until I have mastered the 1st change. (The definitition of master will be consistency). My health related changes:
Weight Traine 3x/week
Increase Protein intake
Track Calories and Nutrients
Drink More liquids
Eat 1-2 fruit/day
Eat 1-2 vegetables/day
So for the next 2 months I will focus on weight training 3x/week no matter what. I will not add cardio. I will not track my calories. JUST WEIGHT TRAINING. I put the scale away so that I would not get distracted by the weight thing (up or down). I choose to focus on weight training first because I know from previous weight loss attempts that exercise is a KEY component of my weight loss. I want to establish a good base of muscle and a good routine before I try to worry about calories.
For the next week, I will get AT LEAST 64oz. of fluids per day mostly in the form of water and tea (with a little decaf coffee thrown in).
