Brent Fit@45: Day 4

From Brent

Brent's Shameless Must Read Plug:

Jill Samter is a dear friend of our family and the author of "Breaking Free: Truths for Healthy Living". Her blog is listed down below in the list of health and fitness links.

I MUST shamelessly plug Jill's book. Go check it out here... hundreds of pages of GREAT health information. I found it so interesting I've read it a couple of times already. It's a well designed, easy to read book that contains a treasure of truths for healthy living. And, thanks to Jill, if you buy her book this month, the proceeds will go towards our adoption. WIN/WIN/WIN for everyone!

My goal is to be "Fit@45". Want to join me?

It doesn't matter how old you are. I'll encourage and support anyone who wants to join me. I'll be putting a daily update on the blog, and you have my permission to absolutely hound me and chew my butt out if I do not stick to my commitments. You'll see some MckLinky lists below that will grow over time and benefit us all. If you have friends and family who need to get healthy, tell them about this post, and invite them to join us on this journey.

Daily Thought:

Learn how to calculate your maximum workout heartbreak. Then calculate the optimal fat burning heartbreak and send your heart rate monitor to that sound. Here's some good links to visit:

Brent,
I started on Jan 12. I use the 'Lose It' app on my iTouch and love it. I keep track of everything on it, my weight, my food, and my exercise. I'd like to lose about 16 pounds...I know that sounds like a strange number but that's the weight on my driver's license :) Does anyone ever change that when they renew their license and they've gained weight? I sure don't.
