(Me and my granddaughters, Emma and Lacey, making Reindeer Food)
I just read today an article by Dr. Oz, who said we really should chuck the scale and instead go by our girth to determine fitness. Measure yourself around your waist, over the belly button. That number should be half your height. I'm five feet, 60 inches, tall, so my girth should be 30 inches. Yeah, well, I haven't gotten around to measuring the damage there. But I can tell you, I'm no where near 30 inches in the waist....my thighs might be 30 inches....which, btw, I think I read years ago should be half the size of your waist.
So, why am I boring you all with this information? Because I plan to check in on my blog weekly to let you all know how I'm doing. I'll probably do it on Saturday, since I started my excising on Christmas Day, Friday. I will also be trying to change my eating habits, so I'll be discussing that some, too.
Everyone is welcome to check in with me and to share their own stories. Let's see how we can change ourselves together.
