The last two weeks have been about Health and Fitness.
I started the year off on a high, I sure as hell don't want to end on a low.
Week 33: Move your Body
Remember when I used to be fit? Then I kind of just feel off the radar. I didn’t really enjoy it anymore. But I don’t actually think I didn’t enjoy going to the gym, I think I just didn’t enjoy the pressure of trying to achieve too much.
But here I am probably 4 months on and I don’t feel good about it. Thankfully I’ve got a girlfriend whose joined the gym and is kicking my butt. She’s making me commit, she won’t accept excuses. So off I go.
I have decided to make this work I don’t want to set unrealistic goals. My goal is to attend the gym twice a week. Because I am so unfit I will spend the first couple of week’s power walking and finishing with weights. Then hopefully I’ll get back into the running.
Week 34: Food Habits
This is the weakest link in my life right now!
I started the year on the Food Patrol 90 Day Challenge and did really well. I lost 8 kilos, but sadly I must admit I’ve put half of that back on.
I do like to think ‘at least I’ve still essentially lost 4 kilos’ but then the voice in the back of head says ‘where will you be by Christmas’
And the reality of it is, it’s not even about the weight, if I told you what I’ve been eating, you’d cringe. Maccas, yeap. Hot chips, chocolate, excessive coke, then I have sugar cravings and can pretty much polish off a packet of jube lollies.
I do it and then I feel like crap.
Where did my will power go?
I feel sluggish, that just makes me want to eat more crap, its like a vicious cycle. Tomorrow, I keep telling myself. So here I am, confessing my sins, hoping that by being honest and putting it out there, I’ll make the change I need to.
I’m not going to go on about what I need to do, I’ve done it before. We all know how to be healthy.
So there we have it, so much for me, personally, to ponder. Here’s hoping as we move into spring, I (we?) find the motivation we need to put a spring in our step.
