Except, y'know, like, my waistline...
It's not like I've gained a million pounds or anything, but, my weight just hasn't been my main focus lately. Which is fine. I'm young and life is short and if my weight were always my main priority than I'd probably be a pretty unhappy person.
However, it has been on my brain lately. Reflecting back on last summer, reading through my blog (here), and thinking about my brother's rapidly approaching wedding have prompted me to start my "healthy lifestyle" lifestyle back up again. I felt so much healthier when I took time to be mindful, eat wholesome foods, and exercise. Plus, I felt so confident watching the pounds melt away!
This summer, I want to focus more on the exercise portion of the weight loss system. I was all about diet last year, strictly limiting myself to 1200 calories a day. I exercised, too, six days a week, but only about 30 minutes on a typical day. Here are my ideas for this year:
- Run around the block or around the lake 5 days a week
- Do an exercise class or spend 45 minutes on an exercise machine 6 days a week
- Eat 1400 calories a day
Like last year, I plan on blogging every day. You can click on the links to see some examples from my blog last year!
