I used to work 9 - 5, get home, watch tv, order in, stay up late, wake up tired, rinse and repeat.

When I got engaged, I knew that the pictures from our wedding day would be the ones we showed our children years from now and I did not want that image to be what it was I saw in the mirror. I knew I had some work to do (and bless my wife, she encouraged me to be healthier and start walking).
订婚以后我知道多年以后我们会给孩子看婚礼当天的照片,我不想到那时孩子们看到的是我现在在镜子里看到的样子,我知道自己有事做了(还要感谢我妻子,是她鼓励我要更健康并开始散步的)。

So what was the one small life change that improved my health? I set up rules. I set up two rules specifically:
那么我改善健康的生活小改变是什么呢?我设定规则。我具体制定了两条规则:

1.No matter what, you are going for a walk today.
1.无论什么情况,今天都要去散步。

2.No drinking or eating out during the week.
2.一周不出去喝酒或吃饭。

Regarding the first rule, rain or shine, morning or night, I was going to go outside and walk around the neighborhood. Sure there were days where I meant to go but didn’t, and days where something came up and I couldn’t find the hour or two I needed to hit my goal. But by setting that goal to walk every day, I ended up walking around 22–25 days a month.
说到第一条规则,无论下雨或晴天、早上或晚上,我都会出去到周围散散步。当然有些天我本打算散步但没去,还有时有事了抽不出一两个小时完成当天的散步目标。但通过每天设定散步目标,最终一个月我走了大约22–25天。

Regarding the second rule, I enjoy drinking socially. So I defined the week as Monday through Friday day. Those 4.5 days I was going to eat healthy. Make my own breakfast daily, prep lunches for the work week, and cook my own food at home.

Then come Friday night, I could go out and have a few beers with my buddies, or stay in and share a bottle of wine with my fiancee, and I would go out to eat on Saturdays and Sundays, basically all rules were off for about 56 hours.
然后就到周五晚上了,我会出去和哥们儿喝点啤酒,或者在家和未婚妻喝一瓶红酒,周六周日晚上出去吃,这56个小时基本把所有规则都抛诸脑后了。

While this probably slowed my progress down significantly, I found it incredibly easy to stick to. And since I still stuck to my daily walks, they helped as a reminder to rein in my weekend consumption just a little bit and as my walking progressed, so too did my calorie deficits (at least during the week).

The end result was a daily calorie deficit of about 1,500 calories during the week and a gain of about 500 - 1,000 calories on the weekends. That worked out to about a pound and a half of weight lost per week.
最终结果是周一至周五每天减少约1,500卡热量,周末又增加500 - 1,000卡,算下来每周减掉了约一磅半的体重。
