I have a fitness goal, and this will help my reach it.
So, I’m on a quest. A health quest, really.
I’ve been lifting weights with my brother for almost two years now, and I have made some gains in the muscle department, I know. But I still don’t feel healthy.
Because I eat a LOT of crap food.
Runza. McDonald’s. Runza. Chinese. Runza. Noodles & Co. Runza. Noodles. Runza. Yia Yia’s Pizza… see a pattern? And that’s not even counting the six to eight Dr. Peppers I’ll have in a day.
This can’t continue. BOTH of my grandpa’s had multiple heart attacks. My dad has had at least one. So, really, I’m holding my fate in my fingers with each greasy french fry.
Now I think I’m a horrible cook, but frozen vegetables pretty much destroy any real excuse I might have.
I tried giving up pop. Lasted a week.
Told myself I was going to eat healthier. Lasted a day… maybe.
I needed some sort of accountability, and, well, we live in the world of Facebook anyway, so why not make the Internet my accountability… or Accountabilibuddy - to steal a South Park phrase.
So this is me. Yep. I’m shirtless. I’m bearing it all… almost. No photoshopping. No fancy photo tricks. Just me. (Don’t worry… there aren’t going to be any more shirtless Brady pics on here.) But this is my beginning - and I figured the month of March is as good as any.
And I’m going to be honest with you - well, really, I’m going to be honest with myself. I’m going to list everything I ate each day, so that it’s there, staring me in the face. A sort of reverse encouragement or tough-love approach to my health - hopefully.
But this isn’t just an exercise or experiment in physical health. I believe health is a three-pronged (at least!) beast: physical, mental AND spiritual. So not only will I list everything I ate each day, I also plan to give at least ONE thing I’ve learned each day AND some sort of spiritual lesson, be it a Bible verse, another spiritual saying/proverb, or an interesting quote.
Still with me? Wow. I’m impressed. I would have stopped after the first paragraph. Well, if you’re with me, great. If not, oh, well. Frankly, I don’t care if anyone or everyone reads this. This is more for my own self-improvement and personal betterment. If it helps someone else along the way, FANTASTIC! :D
So here we go. March 1 - we’re going in like a lion!
