Well tomorrow is my 32nd birthday, happy birthday to me! The last 4-5 years I’ve gained a bunch of weight, I’m around 20kg over weight and seeing as I’m getting married in August, and also Cath has started her ‘Bride-to-Be Boot(y) Camp‘ I figured I should get serious as well and try to get and drop a few kilograms and maybe even get a little fitter as well.
So how am I going to do this? Well the hub of my activities will focus around the Wii Fit. While I have been playing it a little since we got it a few weeks ago I’ve also been pretty busy with work and haven’t kept up my activities on it. I’m going to start a new Mii character and track my progress throughout, I’ll also do a daily blog entry with photos as well so you guys can get on my back if I’m not making any progress and keep me motivated!
As well as doing the Wii Fit activities I’ll also be playing a bit of golf. Most days in my lunch break I get out to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls, and while this is not the most strenuous activity it does get me up and out of the office. I’m going to try and play a round of golf, the full 18 holes, once a week too though this will depend on the weather.
We all know that the best way to lose weight is to monitor what you eat, if you’re not doing loads of exercise then don’t eat loads of calories. It’s that simple really, so I’m going to continue on with Lite n Easy as I’ve lost around 10 kilograms since I started back on it back in February and while I should’ve lost more I blame it on beer. My weakness is beer, not McDonalds or KFC or chocolate, but beer. I love a beer or two after work most days but the problem with that is that beer is loaded with calories and when you’re on a weight loss diet you just dont want to be stuffing yourself with more calories. So no more beer during the week, maybe a couple on the weekend is ok but that’s it.
So there you have it, Matt’s version of Cath’s Boot(y) Camp. I’m hoping you guys can help me out and push me to stick to it!
