I went to the gym yesterday for a free consultation with a physical trainer, and I found out that my BMI (body mass index) is 50%!!!! WHAT?!
After I heard that all I could think was, how could I let it get this bad? SO.
I decided to make some changes, and post my progress on my not so well known blog. Here I can keep accountability for myself, without posting this vulnerable time on my social media sites. I personally get tired of seeing people’s “transformations” and I didn’t want to show anyone the progress until I reach my final goal!
So what am I going to do?
I know for a fact thatmy body doesn’t hang on to dairy well…in fact I know that I’m a little lactose-intolerant, but ice cream man! I was also told by the physical trainer that ifyour body doesn’t like it, it sticks to you more when you eat it.
2. Cut out carbs.
I did this once before and MAN did I SEE RESULTS! Bread and yeast really make my belly expand, so I know cutting this out of my diet will allow my to shred some pounds fast. Now don’t get me wrong, this transformation isn’t JUST about loosing weight. It’s about getting healthy, but to be healthy I need to loose this weight.
I’ve come to a point in my life where I just hate to exercise, and it’s only because I’m so out of shape. It’s not enjoyable because it’s hard. I want to be able to love running, to enjoy dancing and to do that I need to exercise daily. To help me with this I plan on doing Insanity with Shaun T. They provide a workout calendar for you to know what you’re doing each day.
4. Drink more water
I know I don’t drink enough water or anything for that matter throughout the day. So I’m going to track my H2O intake and have around 120 oz of water a day AT LEAST.
I’m not giving myself any more goals, but these four things. Too many unrealistic goals can really set someone back and be intimidating. But I know I can do this! I’m starting with a weight of 229 lbs and would like to get down to around 150. I always tell myself I want to loose weight, and then never stick with my plans. But this time it HAS to change. I’m thinking of my future right now, if I want kids I can’t have my health be this way. My family also has a history of heart disease and I don’t want that to affect my life either. It’s now or never. So come on the journey with me as I take control of my life. Pray that I find motivation EVERY DAY to keep going, and finally
LET’S DO THIS.
