Day 33 on the February Lose Weight Easily in 8 Weeks

Part of the You Can Learn Good Health series.

This is my ongoing saga as I try to lose 8 pounds in 8 weeks. Read the things I do to lose weight and see if you can do better. Most people do better than I do. I believe there should be a balance between diet and exercise. I don't believe you should starve yourself or go on total fasting for multiple days. I believe you need to find a new paradigm on what you eat and the amount of exercise you do each day.

I think you should strive to eat healthy. Most people know the good things to eat and will eat right if properly motivated. I also know many people run a very hectic schedule. Some people are raising a young family, working 10 hour days and trying to attend classes at night. You get to class and the only food available is a candy bar out of the snack machine. Not a healthy choice.

But for many it is the only choice, otherwise they will be in pain during class. And I do mean real pain. But the goal of any program is to come up with solutions to this eating dilemma. You are a college student, how do you solve the good eating problem?

Obviously, you can't be preparing green beans in the classroom. But are there other foods, that will provide a healthier choice than candy bars? Can you substitute an apple for the candy bar? It will probably fill you up just as well, even with the same amount of calories. But it is a healthier decision.

Today, I exercised by going for a walk at the forest preserve. I walked for 4 miles. It was clear and beautiful. The temperature was 20 degrees fahrenheit and the wind chill took it to 15 degrees. But the wind was light so it wasn't really a problem. It was the quietest walk I had. There wasn't any man made noise in the air. Sometimes, I hear cars from the highway. Today, all I heard were little sparrow like birds chirping and a woodpecker getting an early start on spring.

When I got home I went to the basement and lifted weights for half an hour. I worked on my chest muscles and triceps. Bench press, inclined bench press, flyes, dips and french curls.

Breakfast was 2 servings of grits, one scrambled egg, butter, orange juice, and milk. Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with green beans and water. Dinner was breaded fish, green beans, broccoli, bread and butter.

Not a bad day for eating healthy and exercising. Good luck eating the good foods and do a little exercising. Have a great day!
