A Small Fitness Update

20 Mar

About two weeks ago I had reached a breaking point. I was frustrated with myself, my body and my eating habits. However, instead of shoving those feelings down with a doughnut, I was mad enough to do something about it.

So, I posted this:

If you feel like it, click through and read the comments. You guys are kind of awesome.

So, I decided to make some small sustainable changes to my life. I started eating a little better, but didn’t go total DIET on my life. For example, when I had a work event at Krispy Kreme I ordered one original doughnut and a coffee, instead of one original and one with cream filling. I also decided to try to do some type of work out every single day.

Here is today’s update:


I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m on my way.

    Good for you! Its hard cutting back and developing healthier habits. I had surgery last week so I have the next six weeks off work. I decided to detox from sugar and caffeine while I’m off as I’m tired of not feeling good. its crazy how good I’m feeling although the pain pills are probably helping with the withdrawals :). I can’t wait to be able to add some exercise into my day. Keep up the good work!

    Great job! I am in my early 50s, and in 2011 I decided I had had it and needed to do something. I only needed to lose 20 lbs but knew it would only get worse if I didn’t get rid of it. I kept my calories to 1200 6 days a week, and exercised beginning at 30 min a day and worked up to over an hour from there. It took me 6 months but I did it. Remember to not get discouraged, because it will likely start to come off very slowly, especially at the end, because the difference between what you need to maintain your current and ideal weight will be lower. Also remember to take your measurements to get an accurate gauge of your progress, because muscle is more dense.
