I'm ready to draw that line in the sand and be a better me.
1). Heading out today to a local community centre to assess their gym/pool setup. Right now I am very inactive. I'm generally comfortable being a couch potato, but there has been an insistent nagging for somewhere in my brain these last few months to give it up and get active. I want to get back into swimming regularly for sure. Maybe some cardio/weights pre-pool session. Anyone have a workout they can share for what strokes I should be doing to get my best pool benefit? Cardio regiment? Help a N00b out. Pm me if it's easier.
2). I love fish, I crave fish, if I have to choose between grilled salmon and a steak it's an easy, no brainer choice. But I live with my boyfriend and we share a lot of meals. He likes fish, but wouldn't want to eat it 3x a week. Help me discover some alternative, healthy dinner and lunch recipes to try out and mix things up a bit. Including portion controlled sizes.
3). I went to talk with my doctor a few days ago, apparently I'm pretty dehydrated. It's going to sound weird, but I don't like the feeling of drinking. I'll have some alcohol with friends, tea, sodas (which I want to minimize to 1 a week) but it always takes me forever to get through it. I can nurse a beer easily for an hour or more. I need to find a regimented way to make sure I'm drinking water and lots of it. Ideas are appreciated.
Looking forward to reading your thoughts!
