Keeping Health Resolutions in the New Year
Two years ago, Mark Moore made a resolution on New Year's Eve. He promised himself he would work out, eat right and feel better about himself.
“I know where it came from," he says. "I looked in the mirror, that’s where it came from. And I got tired of looking at myself like that.”
He lost 40 lbs over the next two years and 16% of his body fat. But Moore says it's not without challenges.
“The difficult part about it was at first eating because I love food. But once I got over the cravings, cut my portions down and things like that, it just became second nature to me.”
Moore wasn't doing high intensity exercise all the time...he did his exercises, like he ate his meals, in moderation. In fact, trainers recommend low intensity exercise for thirty minutes three times a week for those starting out.
