Last year was not good for the plan. In the early part of the year I broke my toe which derailed some of the challenges. Once I recovered, I lost my motivation from the lack of activity and my slow bounce back from the injury.
Those are a bunch of excuses and I’m tired of hearing them myself. So I’m calling last year a loss and calling for a do over. So in 2012, I’m starting the activity year over again. Every challenge will be repeated as if they never existed. Look forward to new posts and hopefully no repeats from last year.
No, no my will hasn’t given out at the end of the year. I’ve been busy working on next years plan and I’m sure you didn’t want to hear me complain about not eating meat again for another month.
Next year I switch things up a bit and focusing on improving the body with physical influences. I will attempt to improve my fitness level in the most common areas measured. Each month will begin and end with an assessment of where I am to see if there has been any improvement. Also at the beginning and end of the year, I will be doing a full assessment to see how I have changed throughout the year.
New this year will be videos, pictures and maybe audio at various times. No one really wants to watch me eat but since this is now a physically challenge, the results can been seen. I will now let you in a little further to see just how my will is tested.
If you’d like to join me this year be my guess. Encourage others to join you, to encourage you or to try it for themselves. See you in January for the assessment.
Readers of Men’s Health (and maybe sister publication Women’s Health also but I’ve never read it) have seen this section featured monthly for years now. Using the graphic above, they simply would tell you "eat this, not that" when eating out. It is a fantastic tool with a wealth of information about what you are putting into your mouth. And for that reason, I share it with you.
