Tonight I'm watching the new season of Biggest Loser on Hulu. The scary part? I'm heavier then some of the women on the TV show. Almost 20 years ago I gained weight with my baby and have never lost it. I also added a bunch on through bad eating and a sedentary lifestyle. A couple weeks ago I rededicated myself to a healthier lifestyle. I don't eat lots of really bad stuff - except I skip breakfast and sometimes lunch. OK and I also have a big sweet tooth. I believe that my metabolism is so slow that I hold onto any calories I consume. My first step toward a healthier lifestyle? Eat protein for breakfast every day. I'm giving myself 2 weeks to get this step under my belt consistently and then will move onto the next step - walking everyday. Will my weight loss be as fast as the Biggest Loser? Absolutely not. But I'm making changes for a lifetime not just a TV show. As long as the scale is moving in the right direction I'm happy.
I'm participating in a blog challenge to write about a single topic for 31 days during the month of October. So many of the women committed are writing about amazing topics. My topic will probably be a little boring for those reading my blog. But for me, it will be a tremendous opportunity. I'm writing about completing projects around the home for 31 days. I have a to-do list that is a mile long. This is an opportunity to push myself to start or finish projects that are just lingering.
