February Challenge


Image

 

I’m challenging myself for the month of February, and wanted to extend the challenge to you.  Improving my health is one of my goals for 2014 and I need to begin to move my body.  I am tired of starting and stopping and want to stay committed to being healthy and fit for life.  Now, I do not have any unrealistic goals.  I’m not trying to lose 100 pounds in two months, or restrict my calories to 500 calories per day; which is starvation mode for those that didn’t know.  My goals are to eat three healthy meals per day and exercise for at least thirty minutes per day.

 

I want to work out thirty minutes per day to create a habit.  It’s been said that it takes 21 days to create a habit and for this reason February seemed like the ideal month to begin this challenge.  I read an article today in the February 2014 Ebony magazine that discusses eating what you love and lose weight.  You can view the article here.  The article provides a very simple method for each of your meals.

 

I want to live for a long time and refuse to allow bad eating habits and not exercising to limit my lifespan.  I will update you weekly on my progress.  Comment and let me know what your health and fitness goals are for 2014.
