So having gone into Boots today for a weigh in I've discovered some quite startling facts! It's a kick up the arse and now after years of eating crap outside and on off gym I've decided to take the plunge and do it properly!
So welcome to my new fitness blog! I'll be posting daily exercise and food logs, my regular weigh in results and the occasional pic for good measure! (I'm not ashamed, I'm improving myself)
I'm only 19 yet I have the beergut of a 40 year old and not as much strength as I would like to have. So here's to a new year of more muscle, more stamina and more strength (more fat loss too!)
Let's kickstart today off with the facts
Height: 5'6.5" (1.69m)
Weight: 13st 5lb (85.0kg)
Body Fat %: 29.6
Body Fat Mass: 25.1kg
Date of Measure: Saturday 1st May 2014
Pics, daily food and exercise log entries for today to follow.
Breakfast: Chicken Tikka Panini (don't ask, I never actually wanted it)
Lunch: Bacon and Brie Panini and a cake. (Was entertaining someone today and there wasn't much choice where I was)
Dinner: Filled pasta and pork.
EXERCISE QUOTA FOR THE DAY:
I haven't been to the gym at the point of writing this but I will do some sort of exercise at home today if i do not go to the gym immediately soon around this time, as it has been a very tough going day.
I might dig up some insanity workout for 45 minutes or do some pushups (about time I learnt these)
Hopefully tomorrow will be a lot more quality in terms of food and exercise!!! Will keep this updated with what I've done tonight.
So you never actually logged those entries promised in the first post, disappeared for the next 3 days or so, and are back today to inform us your food today has been pretty poor and that at 8:30 pm you still haven't done any exercise, probably can't be bothered to go to the gym, that you might do some at-home exercise today and of course that tomorrow will hopefully be better in terms of diet and exercise.
I don't mean to be harsh, but this smells exactly like 95% of other wishy-washy goal-less (besides general fitness) blogs that crop up and have been forgotten about within a week...
For your own sake set some real, tangible goals and get working towards them methodically immediately! (I.e 1-2lbs fatloss per week, 20 pushups, a chinup/pullup/whatever you want to achieve).
