The new year is upon us and it's time once again for that blasted New Year's Resolution. For me, the same one rises to the surface every year--losing weight. Losing weight to fit into those cute summer clothes and, of course, my tan through swimwear is my goal. Unfortunately, I have been a bit more gluttonous and less active this year, so it will be a bigger challenge than usual. So, you say, what will I do to achieve my goal? Okay, since you forced me, I'll tell you.
First off, I intend to get back to my exercise routine. I use aerobic weight training to build muscle and burn fat. I enjoy the HIIT-type workouts. They are very effective for getting into top shape!
Now for the less enjoyable of the ideas. I have to control my eating habits. Since I was small, I have eaten enough to feed a small army, but now that I am middle aged, I must change! Smaller portions and better food choices are my strategy. It's worked before, so I trust it will work again. It has to; I really want to wear my itty-bitty bikinis again!
I definitely intend to drink more water. I find myself chronically dehydrated and I have read that drinking lots of water will help flush my system and help me to lose weight.
