Blogging is definitely not the perfect ‘job’ when you are trying to watch your weight. My weight has gotten up to about a steady 215, but ideally 180 is my target. I’ve tried fasting, with the Master Cleanse Diet, however since then I’ve gained the weight back. I’ve also cut down drastically on soda and began drinking tons of water. However, it hasn’t been enough.
The past few days I have started morning walks with my girlfriend and son (2 yrs old). Our method has been to get moving early (wake up earlier) and exercise.
We walk several blocks to the store and buy fruit each day. On the way home we all share it (or give little Matthew). It’s a way to get moving and to eat a healthy light breakfast. It doesn’t hurt to get the little guy up and moving as well.
Make it Work for You
Routine and consistency is the key for a workout like this. I have been trying to do everything else to be healthier, but walking and exercise was missing. I believe that it is my last key to begin losing weight again.
You have to make it work for you. We enjoy taking our son out for a walk. The healthy snack for breakfast is plus as well. Since I enjoy it, I am definitely more likely to continue this routine. It’s more an enjoying trip rather than a “workout”.
Not everyone has the luxury of doing this every morning. Be creative with physical activity. Maybe for lunch grab a quick filler and take a walk.
Most importantly, do what works best for you.
