I have been letting myself go. Here’s what I plan to do about it.
Finally on May 1st I decided to get serious about getting into shape.
First item: I put “going to the gym” back into my morning schedule. I go 5 days a week before work. No matter what the weather, the gym is open and pleasant.
I’m starting with the recumbent bike and Dr. Oz’s 7-minute work-out.
Second item: I must reduce my food intake. My main meal of the day is lunch which is provided at work. We have a personal chef. I was reluctant to tell him that I needed a more minceur meal. But he has been very accommodating.
My soup portion has been cut in half.
The entre which is usually salad and a side of something hearty is also pared down.
Finally just a few tastes of something sweet for dessert. For all this I’m very grateful.
Third item: After some research I found that allowing time for one’s brain to live on stored energy (ketones) will help to ward off memory diseases so I plan to stop eating at 6 p.m. each day and not have anything until 8 the next morning. That is a 14-hour daily fast.
Are you consistent with a fitness plan?
