My Fitness and Diet

New Year's Diet Time


I want to improve my fitness level this year and lower my body mass index.  I'm not that concerned with the number on the scale, but it has gotten too high over the past few years.  I have gotten into some really bad eating habits and I need to change this.  It is time for me to take control of my life and do things differently.  If I am going to lose weight it is up to me.  If I don't do it then it is my fault--no one else's. 


It has taken me a while to get to this point of personal responsibility.  I used to blame everyone else for my ever-growing body and bad habits.  No more of this.  Yes, I have had some problems in life--who hasn't?  Yes, I am busy--who isn't?  Yes, I am not the most physically or genetically gifted person in the world.  Are you hearing me?  I can give you a hundred reasons why I can't lose weight or get in better shape.  But none of these excuses will get me anywhere.  None of them will make me happy.  It's time for me to get off my duff and do something.


So I'm taking this no excuse approach and I'm going to try something I've never done before: a crash diet.  I need to start this thing off with some ferocity and I will do an aggressive diet.  I have decided to dedicate one month to losing as much fat as possible.  I will try this approach:


This will just be the beginning for a healthier year.  After I have dropped some serious weight then I'll shift to some other kind of program that involves healthy eating and regular gym sessions.  I plan to train a minimum of 3-4 times a week, increase my protein intake, and cut back on junk carbs.


But first things first--it's time for me to start off with some serious weight loss and a more radical approach.
