Gettin’ the HEALTH groove on…

People struggle with a lot of things. Money, Love, Health. So, since it’s a triptic, Kathie and I decided a few months ago (6 months actually), to try and improve all three. And we’ve been pretty successful so far. But there’s one area that’s really done well, and that’s health.

6 months ago I weighed 168. That’s too much for a 6’9″ dood like me, being used to being a string bean. Kathie was at a whopping 134. That was a lot for her, too. And we decided to count our calories and work out. And this is what happened…

I began running. A little every day like I used to, then more. We joined a gym. Took classes and did the circuit. Small steps, peeps. Always small steps.

The average person burns about 2000 calories a day. Without exercise. With heavy exercise, it’s about 2500. So, we started making sure we ate less calories. That didn’t mean eat less, it meant ate less calories. We’re both vegetarian, so that helps because your insides are as important as your outsides. If you’re not, it just comes down to looking at the label and writing it down. It’s ok to have that danish if… it keeps you under the 2000 for the day. Just don’t go all hog wild…

6 months later? As in, now. We’ve been averaging between 1400-1600 calories a day, just by paying attention. It’s not hard…. unless you’re just plain lazy.

I’m at 156. Kathie’s at 122. That’s a whopping 12 pounds each! DING!

24 lbs = That’s a small doggie! 5 bricks! A sack a taters! A load of horse doo!

Do the experiment. – 2000 Daily Calorie Limit. 1500 intake = lose weight. Get healthy. Period. My ultimate goal?

155. I’ll have it by Friday. 🙂 Shwing!
