Making my body the Temple it should be

So I mentioned in an earlier post that I am planning on focusing on Weight Lose over the next few years. I wanted to touch on that a little more and get a few things rolling for it as well. On Christmas Eve my wife and I were sitting down before joining some friends for a movie and discussed a few ideas and changes that we felt we needed to make in order to take control of our eating and our bodies. Here is that list
  • We will plan meals in advance
  • Take stock of what we have (Ie. Inventory control so we can shop smarter)
  • Clean out the snack shelf
  • Wear the ankle weights around the house
  • Make a shelf space for our daughter (She has turned 18, has a paying job and is buying more of her own food)
  • Exercise tapes
  • Calorie / Fat counting
  • Go for walks when warm enough (We have since found an Podcast that takes you from walking to running over an 9 week program)
  • Portion Control
  • Healthier snacks
  • More fresh fruits and veggies
  • Drink Water
  • Goal garments and target goals.
Now the next two pictures are not for the weak of heart.

I am not gonna wish you luck, cus I know you can do it.

Drink a glass of water before a meal it will help fill you up and flush out toxins too! :)

much luck and many blessings to you. i am taking my health into high consideration as well. weight loss is a goal as well as other things. it isn't easy to do (after all we still have to eat to live) but we can get it done!
