I'm new to this community and quite nervous. I downloaded week 1 of the weightloss plan and I decided to do it as although I'm only just over my BMI, I'm about 21lb over my ideal weight for my height (5ft 4in) and I have really bad eating and exercise habits. I'm only 23 but I have that cocky mentality that I'm just about getting away with eating what I want so don't need to worry and I'm actually heavier than most people think I look. So I'm here to kick these habits and make sure I can have a healthy relationship with food and exercise, feel better in myself and get rid of some of that hidden fat and pounds.
I started my first day of the couch to 5k podcast yesterday and although I found it a bit difficult as I've never been a runner, I managed to last the half hour and am keen to do it again.
I struggle most when I'm sat at my desk at work (in my job I'm either really busy running about and have to catch a quick lunch or can be sat at a desk for hours!) I'm a savoury person and love snacking on crisps and lots of people in my job like to go to drive through McDonalds or KFC if they're having a bit of a stressful day and like the comfort food. I have gone to McDonalds 3/4 times in a week before when I've had a busy one and have to eat in my car on the way to my next task.
I can also be really fussy with food and sometimes don't like things unless they've been made by supermarket e.g. i prefer the taste of a tesco cajun chicken wrap that if I was to make my own, which is not great for the waist or the purse!
So this is my first day on health unlocked and I'm looking forward to using this to boost my willpower and get sopme useful tips!
