consistency is key
Its great to see that lockdown is slowly easing, as now I feel like I can get control again back into adopting a new lifestyle, make these changes, implement them without the ups and downs of lockdown. One of these issues in the past was going to the gym, I love going there, that is the place where I feel happy. The feeling I get when I leave is great, and I feel like I can take on various challenges in the future, come what may.
When the gyms were closed I started doing long walks, tracking my progress. At the beginning I had to admit it was very difficult, because my legs were constantly hurting at the end of the walk, as my body was not used to it. Then over the next few weeks I became fitter and those long walks became easier. The key here is consistency. I was determined to challenge myself and keep walking. Looking back I was proud of myself , as times like that when things are hard I do tend to give up. But this time I changed my thought process, it was lockdown, my mental health was in jeopardy, I had to do this, and keep walking, to really get through this challenging time.
So you can see from this post that I am happy that I can go to the gym again, with a new challenge, to improve my fitness, my mental health, my lifestyle. I have done this by recording my current weight, waist, hip, bicep and stomach measurements. I will then re record this a couple of months later, just to see if there has been any progress. I have also started making changes food wise, including drinking more water, reducing my portion sizes, better snacking amongst other changes.
So here are the stats:
It would be interesting to find out the new stats in a couple of months.
