New Year's Resolutions (Part 2 of X) - Improve my health

The last three months of the year were tough on my health and fitness level. Finishing up my last semester of business school (9 credits) along with my day job led to me adding on about 15 pounds of excess weight.

My plan is to workout at least 5 days a week through January to remove as much excess weight as possible.

Right now I'm taking advantage of free classes at the gym.
Sunday: Yoga
Monday: Pilates
Tuesday: Power Yoga
Thursday: Power Yoga

The rest of the days are spent either stationary biking, stairmastering, or running on a treadmill.

I'm also sitting in the sauna three times a week for at least 20 minutes. Besides being relaxing, it also apparently helps detox the body and remove heavy metals. For more information on the benefits of profuse sweating.

I've also cut out regular and diet soda. HFCS is getting more press as being bad for your health. Aspartame apparently isn't good for you as well, so they are both gone. I'll be drinking water, tea (green and regular), and water with Emer'gen-C or TrueLime or TrueLemon added.

cheers
