Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
This cold weather has got me feeling a little down, but I am thinking sunny, bright, happy thoughts and I hope that you are too! I want to start documenting my weight loss journey so that I can keep my goals and progress in plain sight.
At the beginning of the year I thought I would take a different approach and focus solely on nutrition before adding in exercise, but I am starting to see that I need to exercise if I want to function properly. I have been an active person my entire life and being sedentary does not work for me.
Without exercise I am:
- experience numbing in my hand every night
Some people are fine with being sedentary and have enough will-power to focus on clean nutrition. I think that I need exercise to exist.
With exercise I am:
I want to find a balance point where I can maintain a habit of clean eating and exercise. I did notice that when I added exercise into my routine it increased my appetite. I just need to make sure that I am feeding my appetite with the right kind of fuel.
In my 1st “Transform Your Life Project 2.0” post of the year I asked you, my readers if you thought I should post weekly progress photos. Many people said yes. I am nervous about this because I am currently at my heaviest weight and I do not feel comfortable in my skin. I feel self-conscious and want to hide, but I am going to do it!
I am going to post progress photos and keep you all updated. I cannot promise that I am going to post them every single week, but I will do what I can!
Current Weight: 187
Energy Level: Lethargic
Activity Level: Sedentary
Current Mood: Down and Depressed
So there it is! My starting point. My heaviest. My fluffiest.
There is Always hope and I am looking forward to the future!
I absolutely love my classes at school!!! There is a lot of focus on health, fitness, and well-being. It definitely provides me with lots of motivation to get active and healthy.
