Almost 3 weeks ago several friends of mine and I stormed the Bastille. What that means is it was high time we got back to our program of eating right, exercising and taking care of ourselves body and soul. For me it meant taking charge of my diet which as been heavy on fat and carbs. It is not easy to cut the fat because I am a meat eater. It also means coming up with meals that fit into my eating plans but also satisfy Neil.
Notice I said eating plan and not diet. I am not going on a diet because I know from past experience it will not work. And if I want pizza...I want pizza even though it gave me terrible heart burn yesterday.
For exercise I am using the treadmill. I am up to 60 minutes at 3 MPH with the incline set on 2 what ever that means. I have also added some upper body training with weights and some core work. Today my core is very sore so it must be working. I listen to audio books for the first 30-40 minutes of my walk. Right now it is The Chase by Clive Cussler. Music gets me through to the end. I have included a few of my favorite walking songs. Hope you enjoy them. If nothing else my tasts are eclectic.
If you wish to follow my progress, the stats are to the right. I have by the way lost 4.5 puunds and an ince in the waist. Yea for me.
