Oh man, this post was supposed to go up January 2, not January 23. Sorry for being 3 weeks late!
Lori of Recipe Girl is organizing Ten in 10: Healthy Challenge. Do something healthy for 10 weeks in the first 10 weeks of 2010!
My goals are:
1. Lose 10 pounds
2. Stop eating food from the vending machine at work
3. Exercise with a heart rate monitor so I can improve my cardio health
Normally, I eat lots of fruits and veggies - probably about 80% of my diet. However, it's the other 20%...
So far, I've stayed away from the vending machine, found my heart rate monitor (um, no, I haven't used it yet... :), and lost 3 pounds by tracking my food and increasing my exercise. This past week was hard because it rained like CRAZY in Los Angeles (yes, there was a canoe in Long Beach).
Here is a bloglisting of the group of people who are in the 10 in 10. I hope to post some recipes for foods and snacks that are healthy and easy to make. Here's to a more healthy 2010!
