Happy New Years

New Years ResolutionNew Years Resolution

Time to return to my path to better health.

New Years.
New Years.

For a long time, I have the wrong priorities. I have been focusing on short term enjoyment and relaxation instead on my path to better health. I blame it on stress at work and temptations from my family. The fact is that this is all on me.

No More! I am going to focus on my health and less on weight loss. Weight loss is not what I need. If I focus on these 5 things, the rest will happen on its own.

  1. Eating more fiber. Fiber fills you up and lowers nearly all causes of morbidity and mortality.
  2. Less empty calories. Empty calories are terrible for your waistline. In particular, alcohol and sugar are two of my vices.
  3. More exercise. I need to walk and do flexibility exercises more. My body is slowly circling the toilet. I need to pull myself out of the spiral.
  4. More sleep. I need to get better and more sleep. It is nto necessarily about hours or quantity. It is more about quality.
  5. Less eating out. Eat at home more and if I eat out, I need to make better choices. The bane of my existence is Mexican food and Buffalo wings.

The bottom line: I am going back to my success and focusing on health. My weight will go down if I do these tasks and make it a part of my habits, the weight will come off on its own.
