First week of the 6 week challenge is over already. I ache in places that have never ached before. My diet has never seen such a lack of burgers/chips and Pepsi max shares have fallen as I’m not drinking it either. Water huh? Who knew……
But despite the aches, the hunger and the lack of crisps, chocolate and junk food Im loving it.
I’m aching cos im active using my arms and legs properly not just to walk to the kebab shop (not that I walk there-i drive but you get the gist)
There is a great group of men all doing rhis challenge and all being very supportive throughout the sessions and on the facebook group and its been great for me mentally already.
My head is clearer than its been since I got back from Majorca and it feels great to be in control again.
I will get the results i want because i still have more to give. I’m cautious still, my knee is trying to stop me but I have to push through the pain whilst at the same time trying not to injure myself.
The hardest part so far is the frustration in my head at not being able to physically do what my head expects is possible…yet
I need to remind myself that im closing in on 40 so this will take time. What was easy 20 years ago isnt now. I’m not as active or fit as i was then but week by week i will improve.
This isn’t just about the 6 weeks its about changing 30 years of bad habits.
Food wise im eating smaller portions of better foods and I’ve already lost 7lbs…
Encouraging start but still long way to go and seeing the first result has given me extra motivation and belief in myself that I can do this 20lb target easily….
Big thank you to those supporting me on my Facebook page. Your encouragement really helps. If you haven’t visited me on there look me up, like the page and spread the word. There are some great people on there and I’m certainly more active and visible on Facebook than here….
Week 2 starts tomorrow BRING IT ON!!!!
