I resolve to get a new job this year. DONE.
I resolve to sell my house this year. Almost done, close Jan 31.
I resolve to pay off all my debts this year. All I have left is one land payment.
I resolve to lose 20 pounds, and convert 30 pounds to muscle. This is my annual "guaranteed fail" resolution.

I resolve to improve my physical condition to the point that I am able to survive my wife's stress attacks.

LOL!

Mine is fairly simple:

Buy appreciating asset. Done. Closed Dec27th.
Buy another appreciating asset. Still got 354 days to go. :lol:
Do better with the stocks. My current stocks are up 25% for 2013, 401k not quite as good, but I'll move some distribution around to help that.
See if I can survive the T25 workout without getting a heart attack. I start next week when I'll have a day off from work to recover from the hurt. I guess I'll report back in a year. :P

20 pounds to lose is easy, keeping it off will be your challenge.

30 pounds of muscle in a year is optimistic, try 10% of that per year. EVERY YEAR loll but doable.
But the good news is, every pound of muscles added will help keep the fat off. win-win


I use "my Fitness Pal" app to build balanced nutritious menus and reach my daily calorie count.

There's a whole community there to help you.

I need 2400Cal to maintain my weight, I shot for 1800.

I lost 2lbs / week for 5 weeks without hunger pains, just slight discomfort.

The trick is:

6 small meals a day that will total your calorie count for the day.

Eating every 2.5 hours avoids the hunger pains and the need for snack food.
To maximize muscle building, you need PROTEIN with every meal.

Don't laugh this guy knows his stuff:

Drink the right amount of water:

If you really want to be healthy, adopt a vegetarian menu but add fish and chicken.



Remember: if it taste good spit it out! loll

Free yourself of the notion that meals are a social event and a source of pleasure. They are not, they are a bodily function.
Fuel for your BBC. Too much fuel, it will bog down.

And dessert should be an occasional treat like once a week. Not part of every supper!

Discipline and perseverance are key. Once you reach your goal you can ease up but keep up the healthy life style.

Read this carefully:

The Fat Trap



Good luck.
