ok, i feel kinds of crappy lately. lots of work stress, money stress, car stress, dog stress, etc... and i've been having trouble sleeping, drinking beer too often, eating crappy food, etc... just sliding back into old/ bad habits. so now i want to pull myself out of these bad habits, slowly.
lisa ann sent me a cool website that has a ton of ways to track calories, ask questions, post results, etc... it's called spark people and it's totally free. so far i can't get into it, but i am using it in small ways, like getting ideas on how to make small changes towards a healthy lifestyle. they make a point of easing folks into changes. in the past i went on crazy, strict diets and always jumped right in. i think starting off with smaller changes, and going slow will work much better.
week one goals (july 25- august 1st):
1. research bikes (stationary and road bikes)
2. check out exercise classes available in the area, see what's out there
3. no alcohol for the entire 7 days (golden monkey can kiss my ass!)
4. no fast food for the entire 7 days
5. walk the dogs every day
6. drink at least 64 ounces of water a day (3-4 20 ounce bottles)
by tomorrow, i want to be able to list any exercise classes available in my area.
and of course i'm searching online for a cool pink road bike. something vintage looking, with a basket. that's how i wanna roll!!!!!!!!!! per amazon: bikes are generally broken down into three major categories: road and racing bikes, mountain bikes, comfort/cruiser bikes. funny, there's no mention of unicycles or tandem bikes.... i need to find something with glitter, a basket, and a banana seat!
yes!!!!!!!!!!! dan can do the pedalling and i'll sniff flowers. we just need to add a basket big enough for all 3 dogs....
