I promptly neglected it and neglected working out. So here I am again and I want to figure out how I can get back to where I was when I got out of the Navy. Here are my problems: Motivation - I usually get going for a week or so, then I get sore and stop for a day to recover, but usually end up stopping all together. Food - I love good food, and most good food is fattening. Can anyone point me in the direction of good healthy recipes for a meat and potatoes guy like myself? I'm also looking for something that considers a tight budget. Soda - I'm hopelessly addicted to soda, especially Mountain Dew. So much so that I get headaches if I don't drink one in a day or two. There are other things I wonder about but those are the main concerns. I know how to work out, its the motivation that is killing me. Anyone have any tips, links or any other advice to help me get back on the right path. Every day I'm the heaviest I've ever been and I'm ready to stop the cycle. Thoughts?
