My Personal Fitness Project
I’m planning a major lifestyle change. Currently my eating and exercise habits are not where they need to be in order to achieve my goals. The results have shown in the fact that I don’t have the physical stature that I’d like to have.
Remember that thing that you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t gotten around to doing? Well, this is mine.
I’ve made all kinds of excuses for myself. Now, it’s time for me to suck it up, spend the time, and the energy that it takes to create real results.
I am a firm believer in Practice What You Preach. I not only want to help others through my writing, but I also want to help myself. And this is a medium for doing it.
Over the next year (I know, weight-loss New Year’s Resolutions are trite and overdone), I plan to undergo a complete physical transformation. I will document and record everything that I do. Each week, I will post a recap of everything that I have done, complete with, charts, graphs, and a daily diary. I will also post new information that I find out through research, trial, and error.
I believe that numbers do not lie. I also believe that if you wish for improvement you must record you actions to identify trends and make changes accordingly.
Remarks and Reasons for Doing This
I’ve been in great shape before, during my younger days (which wasn’t that long ago). I’ve since adopted bad habits because of a few reasons:
- I did not maintain the correct mindset
- I lost my will to improve and became lazy
- I did not cultivate the proper emotions to keep me going
- Bad Influences
- I quit (making a habit of) doing to right things
Due to the reasons stated above, I have experienced:
- Lower Energy Levels
- Problems Sleeping
- Tension in my back
- High Stress Levels
In examining myself, I feel strongly that this is the most important thing for me to do for myself right now. I’m telling you about it, because it will hold me accountable.
I will post the details of this project in the coming weeks, as I am currently in the planning stages.
Questions and comments are welcomed. Until then, stay tuned. Thank you for reading.
Is there something in your life that you’ve been putting off or making excuses for? I’d like to know what it is and what you plan to do about it.
