I need to get serious about getting healthy. I feel like if I make this my priority then some of the other things that I'm lacking will start to fall into place. I'm not ready to commit to a gym membership yet, so for now I've set a goal for myself. I want to bike 300 miles on my stationary bike between now and the end of the year. I started this a week ago and so far I've managed to cycle 45 miles. That's a bit less than my goal was for the first week, so I'm going to have to kick it up a notch if I plan to meet my goal. I haven't made any real plans for my food. That's always the hard part for me. I don't want to do weight watchers again, because counting points was just too much of a pain. I know I could and should count calories, but I'm struggling with the motivation to get my poor food habits under control.
I like warm breakfasts. While on weight watchers I ate oatmeal pretty much every day. It was easy then, because I was going into the office so I'd grab a packet of oatmeal and a banana on my way out the door and since that was an easy thing to grab going out the door and by the time I got to work then that was what I had, so that was what I ate. Now that I work from home I always have choices both good and bad. Knowing I have pop tarts or breakfast sandwiches means it's harder to choose that oatmeal that I know I should eat. So, I'm hoping there are those of you out there that can help me make the right decisions. Give me ideas on warm breakfasts or any other lunch, dinner or snack suggestions that you may have. Tell me what you'd normally eat in a day and maybe that can help me set up a food plan for myself and get me on the right track food-wise. I'm looking forward to hearing any suggestions any of you may have.
