I was on the Indiana DNRÂ website today, looking up the regulationsÂ for fishing licenses.Â Â Santa brought Josh a Rocket Fishing Rod, and he’s driving all of us nuts,Â asking to go fishing.Â So anyway, after determining that Josh doesn’t need a license until he’s 17, I found a little Flash video of Peyton Manning promoting the governor’s fitness initiative.
I’m always a little behind.Â The program, INshape Indiana, ran from January to March 25,Â the “10 in 10 Challenge.”Â The idea being, make small lifestyle changes in nutrition, activity level, and smoking (if applicable) and lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks.Â Even though the Challenge officially ended last week, all the resources are still available if you sign up.Â Each week you receive an email with that week’s suggestions.Â If you started right now, your 10 week challenge would run until June 8.Â
I started getting serious about a healthier lifestyle last fall.Â Since September, I’m down fromÂ about 190 pounds (and you have no idea how hard it is for me to blog that number)Â to about 175 now.Â I feel 110% better than I did last summer.Â However, I’ve “plateaued” at 175-178 for the last two or three weeks.Â And my real goal is to lose another 10-20 pounds.Â
So Chris and I teamed up yesterday.Â He cleaned out the fridge (including washing the shelves–YAY CHRIS!) and I went to Wal-Mart (which is in the middle of moving every frickin’ thing in the store… grrr… ) and bought plenty of healthy, tasty food for all of us.Â We’re making a commitment to walking outdoors and being more active as a family.Â Â
