I am not a fan of diets. I am not good at them - mostly because I have no patience. So, when I don't get results right away - I give up. Not to mention, they focus way too much on losing weight, and not nearly enough on getting healthy.
I once lost a lot of weight - in a very unhealthy way. I cut almost all fat out of my diet, and very strictly watched my calories every day. At the same time, I started working out several times of day. I managed to lose a lot of weight - but never improved my health at all. Not to mention - I gained the weight back the minute my work and school schedule changed and I could no longer stick to the work-out schedule.
That said, I know I need to do something. So, I've decided I'm not setting a weight-loss goal. Which works out, since last year I "accidentally" got my scale wet while washing my tub, so I can't weigh myself anyway. But I am going to set a fitness goal.
My current goal? Total beginner. I'm challenging myself to go to the gym a minimum of 4 times a week - and, you know, actually exercise while I'm there. That will be my fitness challenge for March.
I'm putting it here, so that you can all feel free to keep me honest.
