How does a beer lover lose his beer belly?
That's a very good question and one we are about to find out the answer to.
How am I going to do it?
First and foremost, eating better. I am going to meal plan every week and stick to it. I will drink more water and less sugary drinks.
The goal is to win small battles every day by making healthy choices. These everyday healthy choices will help win the overall battle of losing the belly.
Eating in moderation and controlling portion sizes is the other part of the healthy eating equation. No counting calories, just better choices. For the first two weeks, I will track my eating to get a better idea of how I am stuffing my face.
Now don't think all these healthy choices means there won't be any beer drinking. There absolutely will still be beer.
Obviously being active is also a big deal as well. In my previous attempts I was always searching for the perfect plan, but this time I am being a little bit more strategic about it. There is no perfect plan. There is no one size fits all. Well maybe there is, but I haven't found it. It's about just getting out and doing something. Anything.
In order for me to be successful, I have to be consistent. I also have to be accountable. The hard part of is me, and that is my biggest challenge, defeating the voice inside my head telling me it's ok to just skip today. We can pick it up tomorrow. Yeah, that won't work.
Each and every Tuesday I hope to post an update about my journey.
Here's to a new beginning.
Until next time.
