INSANITY and SMALL CHANGES plus OCTOBERFEST

You all know the definition of INSANITY is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That's pretty much been the YO-YO for me the past few month; have a good week or two and drop 3 pounds and then have a bad week and gain 5 pounds. Can't go one step forward and two back and EVER get anywhere.

A few observations and goals for Oktoberfest; some are very simple but important.

A. Parking - Why is it that everyone always tries to find the closest parking stall to the door, weather it be at the office, at the mall or at the grocery store. I paced it off yesterday from my normal spot at the office (as close as I can get to the door) its about 82 paces to my office. This morning I parked at the furthest spot from the front door and its 220 paces to my office. That's 270% more walking than before. 3 Trips each day was 246 paces and is now 660 paces NO BRAINER...

B. Working out with both weights and cardio a minimum of 3 times a week and doing something a little extra on "non workout" days such as a lap around the building or a couple of laps at the mall.

C. 2000 Good calories a day is IT for now as well as a lot of good old fashion water and ONE pop a day at the MAX (if any).

D. I plan to be accountable to the FTF blog and most importantly myself. Remembering that MIND OVER MATTER is the key for me as well as making better choices.

E. No more talk, time to work, if it was easy everyone would be slim.

FTF and Keep the Faith... B
