I would LOVE to resurrect this community, if only because I need a safe place to talk about health and diet and fitness and stress, and everywhere else seems to be populated with anorexic teenagers and weird cleansing diet advocates.

Also, weight watchers was NOT for me, for so many reasons....

So, I will spew my confessions here and if anyone wants to take part, please do!

I posted in my own journal early this week about how disgusted I am with myself lately, being at a whole new level of fatness and unfitness... this week didn't work out so well though - personal stress and work stress just about did me in, and trashed my efforts to do better. With further exertion of will, though, I might just stand a chance.

So -
1) Drink lots of water (8glass per day at least).
2) Exercise - every morning. This involves the other goal of waking up on time and getting to work on time.
3) Avoid junk food - The term "junk" has to be highly flexible here, as we do eat some processed food at home, but if I can avoid eating at the greasy cafeteria or buying chips, I'll consider it a success for now. This involves the goal of:
4) bring yer damn lunch to work, and actually eat it.

Oh, and I will be joining my dear friend's weight training community, which is about useful, strength-giving, osteoperosis-fighting, gentle weight training, not the scary androgenous kind: smartgirlsdo

I highly recommend it.
  • I recently took another look at the scale and was shocked by what I saw. I keep telling myself that I'm getting older and these little aches and pains that have been cropping up are to be expected, but I'm worried that I'm doing at least part of it to myself through neglect.

    So, yay for renewed resolve. I'm going to concentrate on just making it to the gym four times a week and drinking water in place of alcohol. If I can say I've managed that much, next week I'll add something else.
  • lifestyle changes are best done in small steps. don't get discouraged! those are excellent goals you've written up.
