Let’s talk about my fitness level and current eating habits
I originally posted this to “So Tired of Me” back last year. I decided that, among my “archived” posts, I think this needs updated.
If you go to my new “About Allie” section, you’ll see I went to 342 pounds. So not safe, so not good.
I bought a new scale: this syncs to the Lose It!, but I prefer MyFitnessPal way more. I just record my weight in MFP. Fantastic scale; I’d stick to Lose It, but it doesn’t have a vast array of calorie countage like MFP. Since it was my first week back again, I lost 7 pounds. I definitely don’t expect that next week.
Thursday mornings are my weigh day, by the way.
My Work & My Weight Loss
I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day; I have an unofficial “lunch” for one hour. However, it’s “frowned” upon if you’re not getting your work done (yes, seriously).
However, I’m able to bring my veggies/chicken with me and eat it at my desk.
Speaking of sitting at a desk 8 hours a day…
My Fitness Level
…is putrid. At an all-time low. I mentioned my love of Nerd Fitness and am kicking myself for not sticking to the “101” body-weight circuit. I can only go for the two rounds and not three, but it’s a start.
I just feel so ugh. What’s holding me back is purely me.
I often asked myself “when will I stop making excuses and let life dictate my calorie intake and physical activity?”
I guess last week is a start, but I really need to move from my desk, even if upper management gets pissy. Humans aren’t made to sit like this! I feel like I’m wasting away.
I need to form a new habit is what I need to do.
Regardless of circumstance, I just need to exercise. It has to go to the highest of priorities. It doesn’t even take me that long to do the body-weight circuit and I enjoy doing it.
- Lose the first 30+ pounds to get back to 300
- Develop a exercise routine
- Continue prepping my own meals
- Use my UP Jawbone to measure my fitness level
I really missed writing this stuff.
