Lifestyle Change Pt 3: Having a plan

It's Wednesday and I have been making adjustments to my personal dietary lifestyle for the past 2+ weeks. I have observed that the longer I stay with this new approach the better it gets. I love having a plan, no matter what I am doing. Here are some of the things for which I have a plan:

1. Bible Reading -

2. Cardio workout - ask me.

3. Bike riding plan - I have certain routes that work depending on wind direction and the amount of time I have to ride.

4. Weight training plan - I use the Body for Life plan. I love it!

5. Eating plan.

6. Halftime Plan - what will I do with the second half of my life.

What are some plans you have?

Lifestyle Change Pt 2

Yesterday I talked about some lifestyle choices I am making to be a healthier me so that I will still be around for my grandkids, AND be able to kick their butts on a bike ride. I'm not going on some RADICAL diet, but rather trying to do things that will help me be healthier in the long haul.

Today I want to share about some of the things I am NOT doing in order to be healthier:

1. No red meat - exception: when at Outback Steakhouse once a year.

2. Low to no saturated fats - I've been doing this for a while anyhow.

3. Ice cream? - nope. Maybe once or twice a month for a treat.

4. Sweets - anything that is high in sugar is off the list.

That's it for now. Would love to hear what is going on in your "dietary" lifestyle. Tye out.

Lifestyle Change

Back in February I had a physical that revealed high cholesterol. HIGH. Well, the good doctor put me on Zocar and I put me on 10 pounds and became lethargic. Not good for me.

Two weeks ago I quit taking the Zocar and I am doing some things that will help me become more "heart healthy." Here are some of the changes I have made:

What I am doing:

1. Carrot juice from a juicer - someone gave me a Jack Lalane juicer. My goal is 3-4x a week.

2. Flax seed - bought the powder kind at Sam's Club and stir it into my cereal or oatmeal. Goal - 7 days a week.

3. Oatmeal - Plain and simple. Goal - 4-5x a week.

4. Salmon - Frozen fillets are easy to bake. Goal 2-3x a week.

Tomorrow I will share some of the things I will NOT be doing.

Tye out.

Where in the world is Tye?

Welp, I have been missing in action for a while now in the blogosphere. A busy life squeezed the blog out of my grip. I'm sorta single parenting right now with a wife who works seconds so I fulfill two roles now: primary wage earner and Mr. Mom.

That's it for now. Leave a comment and let me know you read this.
