60 day fitness challenge
Today I started my 60 Day Fitness Challenge… My challenge is to walk for 40 minutes 6 days a week. I am also turning vegan for 60 days. The combination of both, I hope, will lose me 30 lbs …
Lighthouse Media Group (my employer) is very proactive in wellness/health/fitness. There is always something going on to encourage a heathier lifestyle…
Being proactive means making changes before problems occur rather than making changes after problems occur. If we all made some fundamental changes to our lifestyles by increasing exercise, increasing consumption of fresh vegetables and fruit, reducing consumption of dairy, meat and saturated fats and stopped eating junk food and smoking, there would be a significant decrease in diabetes, coronary heart disease and cancer, just to name a few.
I’m not sure why it has taken me 45 years to truly realize this…. I guess when we are younger we suspect we are immortal.
So I am going to keep my daily food diary here online, it will help me focus on eating healthily and follow improvement on my fitness.
I’ll also do a weekly weigh in and B/P check
I think it’s a great initiative and a great experiment!
