To start the year off right most resolve to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. This time honored resolution is well, time honored and all too often futile.
Around this time you may hear lots of things from people
◦ “I resolve to eat better” This means you will wake up 30 minutes sooner to prepare breakfast and abandon you lunch time haunts. Not everyone is prepared for this.
◦ “I resolve to eat less” Uh... that's the same thing as "I'm going to starve myself to lose weight!"
◦ “I resolve to exercise more” Pretty much this means you have to find time in your schedule to go to the gym for an hour 4 times a week.
This year my husband and I have joined team weight loss. I just want to be more fit and active and he well, he needs to lose all the sympathy baby weight he gained (and is still gaining) when I was pregnant with Kendall.
There are lots of different ways to do this but we are going with the time honored tradition of a gym and eating better. My husband's new work schedule allows him to be home most days by 2pm so he is going to take the dog on a long walk/run then the whole family will hit the gym. Our gym has a child care facility so it's easy for us all to go together.
Regardless of whether you have resolved to lose weight because you want to look good or you want feel great, it can be a resolution that you can keep if you have a little patience and some help. You could be looking good and feeling great by spring – if you get started now.
