A Little Less Of Me

My quest to become thinner and healthier

Goals 2 January 2009

I want to use this page to list my goals for becoming a healthier person.  They’ll change, but they’ll never be removed from here, I’ll cross them out, or mark them as complete as I work towards a better me.  So, without further ado, here they are!

  • Get down to 155 pounds.  I think 155 is appropriate for me, I feel as though the recommended weight for me is a little too small, I constantly felt hungry at 145, so I can’t imagine how I’d feel at 125.  I’ll revise the weight as I get smaller.
  • Make one completely new meal per month.  I’m not a great cook, and I think it’s important to have variety in your diet, which I don’t have.  So, I’m going to try and pick out a new recipe from one of my million cook books every month and make it.  If we like it, I’ll add it to the rotation.  If not, at least we tried!
  • Drink at least 100 oz of water per day.  It’s going to take me a while to get back to this, but I was drinking around 100-150 oz of water per day before Liam.   That was good for me, and I’d like to get back to it.
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes, at least 3 times per week.  This one’s going to be hard, but I’m going to give it a good try.
  • Get on the scale every morning.  There will obviously be exceptions, but for the most part, I’m going to stick to this.
  • One “cheat” day every other week.  I’m going to allow myself to have an off-day every other week and see how that goes.  If it goes well, it stays.  If it doesn’t, we’ll try once a month and see how that works.
  • Work towards eating more natural foods.  I want to get to a point where the ingredients on foods I buy are all ones that I can read and understand.  I’d like to get to a point where I’m baking my own bread and making my own ice cream, but let’s make one improvement at a time.

    Wish me luck!
