I was pretty sick this last week, which is a horrible way to return home for a new semester at school. But whatever. I’m not completely over it, but I’m good enough to start thinking further on my diet/exercise goals.
The main thing I need to do now is add an exercising component. Weight Watchers recommends exercising 30 minutes a day, so I’m going to try and start with that. I have a Wii Fit, so my goal is to get in 30 minutes a day. We’ll see how that goes. Once it starts getting warmer I think I’m going to try and get some regular walking into my schedule, too. Getting outside more will be good for my health.
My goal this weekend is to also sit down and plan out a menu for the week. My eating this week has been fairly sporadic, as my appetite has gone in and out due to being sick. I’d like to start getting in the habit of cooking healthy meals regularly. One of the ways I’m accomplishing this goal is by having a weekly dinner with a group of friends who are all trying to cook more health conscious meals. It wasn’t my idea, but I was glad to jump on board with it. It helps with accountability and also motivation to keep up with the goal. Of course, if I’m going to reach my goals, I need to be thinking healthy every meal, so I really need to start planning things out rather than just coming up with my dinner plans on the fly.
