Starting this journal is the next step in my road to becoming a healthier, happier person. Thankfully, I have never had a weight problem. Actually, at 22, I have only gained a few pounds since high school, despite my horrible eating habits and lack of exercise. I am a fast-food addict. Since I live alone and am a full time student, it's much easier to swing by Burger King for dinner than to cook at home. By last spring, I was finding it hard to fit in my clothes. I decided to change.
For 5 months now I've been lifting weights. Although I'm certainly not up in "Arnold's" league, I've made much progress. I also do some form of cardio 3 to 4 times per week. Despite my dedication to these areas, I'm still having trouble with my diet. I need to be held accountable for what I eat. This is why I'm beginning this journal. Suggestions about any part of my program will be appreciated. Note: any comments about the weight-lifting should also be directed at homeyield since he helps me in that area.
