Don’t you wish salad was more like pizza? I would eat so much more salad. Pizza is my favorite food. I could literally eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday. Constant consumption of pizza is probably one of the reasons for my post-college weight gain. It doesn’t help that I sit all day long at work either.
I’m at the point in my life now where if I don’t take responsibility for my health and fitness I probably never will . I don’t want to keep saying that I’ll eventually workout or I’ll start eating better next week. Why keep pushing it off? Why not do it now? So that’s what I’m doing.
Aside from my pizza addiction, I usually eat pretty well. Austin and I love cooking and making our own food, which gives us a lot more control over what actually goes into our bodies. Where we really need to make improvements is with our physical activity. We go to work, come home, make dinner, clean, and then we are exhausted. That can’t be an excuse anymore.
As motivation to take control of my life I wanted to set some goals to work towards, both short term and long term.
Short Term Goals
~ Meal Planning. We’ve actually been doing this for a few weeks but I really want to stick with it. It saves money and assures that we eat well.
~ Going to the gym 3 times a week. I would eventually like to go more often and derive more value out of my membership, but for now I don’t want to burn myself out. My body is sore and I need to give it an adjustment period.
~ Loose jeans. I know loosing weight and getting fit is tough. I won’t be broken-hearted if I don’t drop a pant size right off the bat, but it would be nice if I could feel my pants getting looser. That would be great motivation.
~ Take advantage of ClassPass. I would love to take a selection of classes to diversity and keep interest in my routine and ClassPass allows me to do that by giving me access to fitness classes at studios all over the Baltimore area.
Long Term Goals
~ Feel good. Look good. My ultimate long term goal is to feel great inside and out. I’m never going to be super thin and I’m never giving up my pizza, but I think with hard work and dedication and can feel healthier and get my body looking damn sexy.
