I have changed the design of No. Calories Needed. I wanted a site that would better match the look-and-feel of my other sites. I have also decided to ditch the whole “I’m not on a diet – I just want to feel better” thing. The truth is, I need to lose weight. I am 5’8 tall and I weigh 242 pounds. While I like the idea of focusing on the “whole person” – I’m more of a goal-driven type of dude. I need a specific, achievable goal. So, I am going to go old school and create a chart and track my progress.
Introducing The 33 By 33 Project
The Goal: I want to lose 33 pounds before my 33rd birthday, January 13, 2008.
The Diet: I will eat healthy proteins, complex carbohydrates, fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Exercise: I will push myself – I am going to try to go to the gym (at least) five days per week. I will alternate strength training and elliptical work.
Ten pounds per month sounds reasonable. Any adult should be able to push himself for three months. In the past, I’ve set goals based on tables and charts – this time, I simply want to get below 210 and go from there.
If you have advice or feedback, I’d love to hear from you. When I started my debt reduction blog, I found that I was motivated by readers and their comments. Also, if you would like to follow my progress, please subscribe to No. Calories Needed via RSS or via Email.
