Healthy life means healthy choices

The healthiest way to loss weight is a combination of getting enough sleep, eating the right foods, drinking enough water, and exercising your ass off... Literally.

Step one- sleep

Right now I get about 6-7hrs of sleep a night and I need to average 8hrs a night.
New lights out time!

Step-2 food

So I chose to try the 21 day No Junk Food Challenge because my biggest downfall is my love of chocolate, peanut butter, and cheese. Everything else is just something I can put one of these three on. I need to break the Junk Food addiction.

Step-3 drinking

Unfortunately I mean water not alcohol. The body need about eight 8oz glasses of water a day. If it's hot or your exercising the number increases. I plain to drink 10-11 glasses a day sence it is both hotter then  hell here in SC and I will be exercising.

Step-4 exercise

This is the hard part, working my ass off. I have already switched to parking farther away from the store and taking the stairs. I even made a routine of a mile walk in 15-25 min.s four days a week. Now I need to ramp up the action. For the next three weeks I will walk at least 11miles per week and weight train every other day.

Stop Eating Crap

Words to live by.

Step one to my new life is Stop Eating Crap!

In October of 2014 I weighed in my heaviest, 285 lbs. I set myself a goal of 165 lbs. By June of 2015 I had dropped to 188 lbs, but that is when I  screwed up. After 2 months of stress eating I climbed back to 195 and I decided to try the 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge to get back on track. Starting July 31, no junk food for 21 days.
