Week 1 – 1 Kgs Weight loss

Its January and now the Christmas and New Year excess of food and drink has finished I decided to start the Fitness and Health kick in earnest.

So after the first week I have lost a whole Kilo in weight, so happy with this. So what I have done so far? The plan is to start slow. not to make any dramatic changes after all the plan is to makes live changes in small steps, this needs to be sustainable not just a quick fix!

The main change this week has been to only eat 3 times a day. This has been a big change for me, as beforehand I tended to snack all day long. I have a light breakfast at around 10 am, lunch at 2 pm and dinner around 7.30 pm and that’s it. If I feel hungry between meals I just drink water and the hunger pain soon goes.

Although this is a fairly small change I’m really pleased with the weight loss for week one, a real boost and definitely helps with the motivation. Exercise wise this week, I’ve only manged one short 2 Km run and daily Plank exercises for around 30 secs.

 

Health

I got brave enough today to weigh myself and I knew i’ve put a few pounds on, but not the amount the scales displayed. I’m slightly embarrassed ┬áto report that I’m 90Kgs! I know 14 Stone, how did that happen?

So today sees the start of the big fitness plan, My goal is to get to 75Kgs in a year, there i’ve said it publicly, set myself a target, by December 2018 I’d like to get to 75Kgs that a loss 15 Kgs or around 3 stone.

Firstly I need to stop eating junk, I eat far to many biscuits, crisps and convenience food, not only that I eat it all the time, grazing all day.

Secondly, I need to get more exercise. Currently I do a little, mostly walking the day twice a day, but that doesn’t really burn the fat. At school I was good at cross country running and I did enjoy it also, so this evenings task is to read up and start running.
