Do you feel as energetic as this fellow?
He looks kind of bored about the whole thing.
How are your new year's resolutions going? How about mine? What do you mean... you want to hear about mine? OK, my two primary resolutions are Diet and Exercise. Here's my plan.

Start Date was Monday, January 7, 2008.
Diet Plan
  • Limit calories to approximately 1600 per day.
  • Eliminate bedtime snacks.
  • Weigh daily. Plot on graph.
  • Put weight loss goals on graph with 3 milestones.
  • Have reward for reaching each milestone.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water per day.
Exercise Plan
  • Do a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio exercise 5 days a week (MTWTF)
    (Elliptical at gym or stationary bike at home)
  • Do weight routine 3 days a week at gym (Mon, Wed, Fri)
    (Weight routine is 3 sets of 10 reps on nine machines at the gym)
Measuring Success
  • Pounds Lost
  • Exercise Points --1 point for each cardio activity and 1 point for each weight session (Max of 8 points per week)
  • Scoreboard on Blog - Each Saturday I will list pounds lost and exercise points in the right hand column of this blog (cumulative).

Jokes of the Day

A man was sitting on a bus chewing gum and staring vacantly into space. Suddenly the old woman sitting opposite him said, "It's no good you talking to me young man, I'm stone deaf."
A woman walked into a bar carrying a duck under her arm. The local drunk saw this and asked, "Say there, whatcha doin' with that pig?" "That's not a pig, stupid!" she said coldly."That's a duck." "I know," replied the drunk. "I was talking to the duck."
