For those keeping track

One month in, I’m down two pounds total. This is less than the pound per week I was aiming at, but given the holiday dessert eating I’ve been doing (more than I should) and the amount of exercise I’ve been getting (much less than I should), its pretty impressive. This next month, I’m going to start fitting in a ten- to fifteen-minute walk after my first hour of writing and before I dive into e-mail and forums and the like. It’s not a big change, but the goal here is consistency, and small steps that add up to big changes over time.

  1. Two pounds may not seem like much, but if you sustain it for 12 months, you’ll be down an awesome 24 pounds, which is a big deal. And small changes have the best chance of success. Don’t forget, health and fitness is more than a scale reading. The extra movement will benefit your heart, circulatory system, muscles, and joints. Additionally, it will contribute to your overall sense of accomplishment and mental well-being. Lots of pluses.
