just made a new weblog
to help him achieve his fitness and healthy life-style goals. I am going to follow his lead and add a daily log here of what I did each day to further my goals. I guess first I should set down what my goals are:
1. Eat more fruits and veggies, and organic ones at that. At least 5 per day.
2. Exercise at least 30 minutes each day, even if it's just a walk with the baby. I want to do the Zoo Run Run 5K walk
at the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison at the end of September so I need to get walking.
3. Keep avoiding those preservatives and additives! I am pretty good at avoiding the fast food but do have a burger every once in a while. That reminds me...
4. Avoid the red meat.
5. and finally, no more custard. If you don't know what Milwaukee frozen custard is you don't know how hard this is to do around here. I've had quite a few turtle sundaes and root beer floats (made with a local brew, Sprecher's) to relieve the stress since we've been here. This has to stop.
I will not, however, give up my chocolate. I will cut back to just a couple of small pieces of very dark chocolate every day.
I love Mike's extra incentive idea so I'm gonna do that too, mostly because I like to get more stuff. If I stick to my goals until my 36th birthday on Oct. 6 I will get an Ipod Nano Video, the green one, which looks to me like it matches my mixer!
Thank you Mike for the kick in the pants.
