I know this isn’t food related. When I went vegetarian 2 1/2 years ago I weighted 210 pounds, I lost 20 but I couldn’t lose anymore with just diet. So I started trying to work out, got down to about 180. When the weather got hot I got lazy and didn’t do it anymore. I got back up to 195.
After I did a large project and gained some extra money I decided to gift myself some kickboxing classes. I’ve learned a lot and it’s kick started me back into it.
My issue now is to find something I can stick with. So for the last month every morning after I wake up I do 20 minutes of what I learned at kickboxing. When it warms up we go hiking and walking, but I want those to be extra and keep the 20 minutes every morning to at least do some kinda of activity.
I started the squat challenge because doing a bob and weave in kickboxing proves that my legs can’t take it. I’m on day 5 so far. And the other one my teacher gave me, and said just do what I can. Which is only 15 crunches instead of 50, and about half of everything else. But eventually if I keep at it I’ll get it!
I’m back down to 185, and once the snow melts I should be back outside to hike and walk as well. Food is just one part of feeling better, for me finding the right routine will insure I stick with it.
