My son moves to Texas to live with me on August 12. That's one year since my marriage ended and I moved out of the house. I can't begin to explain how happy that makes me, but it seems like an eternity from now. I've decided to set some self-improvement goals to pass the time until he arrives.
I've made some check-off charts, I've read some books on changing/creating habits, and on Tuesday things begin.
Summer 2013 Goals and Action Steps:
Lose 33 lbs between 5/28/13 and 8/12/13.
-Perform at least 15 minutes cardio (even just walking) everyday for 77 days.
-Lift weights 44 days between 5/28/13 and 8/12/13
-No carb diet/1600 calories per day/One cheat meal after each 6 lbs lost
-Track food on Fitday.com
Cut caffeine out of my diet completely.
-Take an account of all caffeine taken in for 5 days.
-Remove 50 mg every two days until at 0mgs
Read at least 25 pages a night for 77 nights.

Perform some sort of relaxation/meditation daily for 77 days.
Any advice is very welcome. I've been taking caffeine pills for probably 15 years. I drink Coke Zero and drink green tea by the gallon. I took ephedrine with the caffeine until it was banned. Occasionally on the weekend I'll try to cut out the caffeine, but I end up as a lump on the couch. I know I've burned myself out, but I'm scared of being a big lump o crap at work when I cut out the caffeine.
