For the last week i have been tracking my calorie intake with Lifesum and using the Nike Training Club app with the Start Up Plan to kick start my fitness and get it back on track.
I have never been overweight or really had any weight issues, I am now slightly podgier than i would like and don’t really know what to do about it, as well, i have never been in this situation before. Which causes mayor issues, as my ability to say no to yummy food and motivate myself to exercise are basically non-existent! So lack of experience with dieting or food management or consistent exercise in terms of work outs is a very new and a very steep learning curve for me. So this is my journey, one week down and a hell of a long way to go, but at least i have started.
What i have learned just in this last week:
- Exercise is hard
- I am not very fit
- I am not very flexible
- I snack too much
- I work too much
- I have very little time
- I do not prioritize health
- I live for the sweet things
- I need more leggings
- Progress is slow, well completely nonexistent a week in (no idea how that’s motivational, thanks a bunch body!)
- I do a lot of walking, and don’t do a lot of anything else
- I can’t bet on myself
- I am hungry
- I am lazy
- I am embarrassed to be seen exercising
Ill keep you posted on how my second week of it goes, lets hope i can learn some slightly more positive things and actually start to move the bulge!
