Initial Concerns and the Evolution Fitness App
So I’ve been overweight for some time. Incredibly unfit and eating all the wrong foods.
July 2021 I was 210lbs which is the heaviest I’ve ever been. When I sleep at night I have been getting reflux and waking up choking on it. Last time I went over 208lbs it happened too. So I know what this issue is but this particular time it felt like I couldn’t breath for ages.
That scared me and I know I have to lose weight and eat better.
My eating habits have been poor for years. I love fried food, chocolate, chips and stuff like that.
My path to better living and eating has begun.
Since the beginning of July I haven’t eaten chips or chocolate. I have switched up white bread for protein bread. I eat more fruit and for a snack I’ll eat a couple of strawberries.
Nothing scientific as yet but a simple cut out of crap.
In two weeks I have lost about 2 Lbs which isn’t too shabby.
The next step will be to do some workouts.
I do walk most days with my dogs for about a mile but it’s a slow pace.
So Evolution’s fitness app is going to be my new workout partner. From July 26 I plan to undertake a daily exercise routine.
Will post after my first workout
First week done and I can’t say I feel better physically. I feel happier in that I know I am doing the right thing and my weight is also decreasing.
But my back aches and I feel exhausted. My daily walk pace has decreased from 17 minutes a mile to 20 minutes a mile.
But it’s not supposed to be easy and I will continue and move onto the second weeks workouts. I know this is the right thing to do and I will feel better but it’s just hard getting going and forcing myself to maintain the discipline of doing this each morning.
