A year ago I got serious about taking control of my finances, made a budget and a lot of changes in our lifestyle. I'm almost half way to paying off all my consumer debt now; that's like a decade of bad financial choices cleared away! I've learned that when something is really important I can do it.
Which brings me to the reason for this post: I want to improve my physical condition; in short, get fit. This past week I worked out five times so that's the benchmark to aim for going forward. What's startling is how much better I feel already; going up the stairs is easier and my body moves a bit more freely simply by waking up the muscles. Food is another issue. I've always been an emotional/comfort eater which is why I'm back up to my high weight. This time I'm going to concentrate on treating food as a fuel and work on making healthy choices. I'll track my intake on livestrong.com. The emphasis is going to be nutrition, not weight loss which will be a new direction.
