HABITS

    Bad habits are what got me in this mess of unhealthy blob in the waist region. The two most concerning bad habits I have fallen into are excessive eating of fast food (mostly Chinese takeout) and lack of exercise. This is all a compilation of bad habits leading to bad choices. For example, my morning routine, the way I shop for groceries, what I do when getting home from work, and just about every thing else during the day are all full of bad habit. Getting healthy will begin with taking small steps to better habits. I say "small steps" because trying to change it all at once will only overwhelm me and lead to failure.

    The first small step is to wake up earlier and run on a treadmill for 10 minutes. I will add 2 minutes every morning until I reach 45 minutes of running every morning. I will be including in this step changing my breakfast to a healthy one. Clearly, I will try to eat the healthy breakfast before the run for energy. All other meals for the day will not yet change.

    Since this is the first step, it's a perfect time to go over my starting stats.

32 years old.
230 pounds.
6 feet 4 inches tall.
45 1/2 inch stomach. ( Measuring from belly button wrapping around back until tape reaches back to belly button.)
