On Tuesday I made a commitment to a healthier lifestyle -- I joined a gym and engaged a personal trainer for 6 months. Michael and I also committed to cutting down on alcohol intake -- we will drink no alcohol after dinner. On Friday I will have my first session with Yvonne and will go at least once a week (aim is twice) more to do cardio exercises on my own (while Michael is with the trainer). This will give us both incentive, I hope.
In the interest of honesty and full disclosure, I am going to post my progress out here for anyone to see. My starting weight is 160# and my starting body fat is 39%. The goals are 34% and 150# -- let's see how I do, eh?
