Weight loss, Urgh, how hard is that?! I'm 25 and 8 months ago I got a new job. A job where I spend a lot of time on my bum, which of course has become larger! I've gained around a stone in that time and my Bmi has crept up to an unhealthy number.
I used to spend my whole day on my feet working up to 16 hours. Eating meals filled with vegetables. Now I spend 8 hours majority on my bum, I avoid snacks but if you could see how many coffees I drink you'd be shocked!
So as I say I have gained around a stone, which is silly because I wasn't happy with my weight as it was! I will be aiming to loose 2 stone, currently 11 stone 8 (ish) the scales at home and the hospital are very different.. They reckon I'm 11 stone 5 but my scales are adamant that it's not the case! Haha
I have downloaded a 7 minutes A day workout app as well as training with dasi which I found online. They both focus on muscles as apposed to cardiovascular which I enjoy.
I have an exercise bike which I will be using daily for half an hour, I will keep increasing the resistance but never allow myself to feel uncomfortable.
My friends and I enjoy hiking. We regularly partake in 10-15 mile hikes, some rather difficult in regards to the incline. I have asthma and have used this as an excuse previously but I am working through it! Our next hike is 15 miles in the peak district ready for our Ben nevis climb in June. I am hoping to be have a comfortable and enjoyable hike, a lifestyle change should assist.
Dawn my sweet tooth.
Any tips, any meal ideas are all welcome. As I said I am a vegetarian, and a fussy one at that, I don't eat quorn, mushrooms or tofu as I dont enjoy it. Imagine sating out with me eh?
