Feels like the proper first day

Wow. Yesterday was full of good things. Not only did Germany beat Brazil 7-1 ( Wut?! ) but I got some great advice and an offer of help from my friend.

He’s given me a number of small exercises to do, each morning, to start building up strength and core muscles. He’s also offered to train me and give encouragement. Which is more than I could have hoped for.

3 reps of:

  • 10 Push ups (from the knees, my little arms aren’t up to the task yet!)
  • 10 Sit ups
  • 10 Squats

It probably sounds terrible to anyone reading this, but I did it and felt quite good about it. It will take me time but starting is part of the journey.

I also completed the first walk run this week, and I’ll go again on Friday and Sunday. Just to document, I walked for 4 and a half minutes then jogged for 30 seconds. Each week the jog is increased by 30 seconds. 

The result of the walk/run (or W/R) is I realise how heavy I am. Everything is moving, my moobs, my cheeks, my belly. It is not a pleasant feeling.

But after nearly a week of eating better and moving more I weigh 104kg.

It’s going to be a long road.
