I’ve spent the week thus far working down my sizable to-do list. I’ve managed to complete about 2/3rds of it, which is pretty good for me. With my work habits, though, it will be December before I finish everything on there.
One of the things I’m trying to do this semester is to finally lose some weight. Over the last 3-4 years I’ve fluctuated between 185-195 pounds when I should really be down around 165-175. So, my goal is to get down to 170 between now and Thanksgiving, which means losing 20 pounds. I think this is doable with some modest changes in lifestyle:
- No cokes – during the summer I was drinking way too many cokes, which translated to lots of empty calories. I’m currently trying to kick the habit.
- Working out – I’m terrible about working out, and I need to be more consistent if I’m going to shed the weight.
- No fast food – See comments about cokes, this is easier to accomplish in Boston because we aren’t near any fast food restaurants
- Cut down on beer – This is the hardest one, though I’ve done it before. I’m trying not to drink on weekdays and to limit myself to about a 6-pack on weekends. (Thanks to Dave, I’m already behind on this one… ;)
By the way, I wrote and posted this via MS Word, which is pretty convenient relative to logging into blogger. Also, FireFox never played nicely with blogger, so I think this will work for me.
