I'm posting here as a newbie as my way of committing to starting this plan when i wake up tomorrow morning.
I'm always one for saying 'Next week i'll...' and I never seem to get around to doing what I say, always seems that there will be some distant time that will be better to begin but I realise I need to start taking care of my health now and stop putting it off. I was at the upper end of the healthy bmi for my weight last summer but over the winter seem to have put on quite a lot and now i'm definitely in the overweight sector. I would first like to return to my summer weight and then take it from there.
With this in mind i've joined this forum, written down my starting weight (need to take measurements too) and plan to do a food shop tomorrow afternoon to plan healthier meals for the week. I've decided to focus on three things first...
1. Bigger healthier breakfasts to stop myself eating sugary unplanned snacks.
2. Get outside and do some exercise - snowy walk tomorrow morning to kick things off
3. Start counting calories to keep track.
Please could i have a newbie badge?
P.s i found the c25k forum for running super helpful so i'm looking forward to being part of this one too.
