Hello fellow Nerds,
I am a 32 year old nerd that has come to the realisation that despite me trying to convince myself otherwise for years, I am unhealthy. While browsing the net a couple of weeks ago I found a Nerd Fitness article about levelling up your life that really hit home for me so I checked out a few other articlesand start reading through the forums. It was like I have finally found a place for my inner Nerd to call home.
Through the years I have put on a few (lot) of extra kilograms that I have been inspired to shed. It was a shock for me to weigh myself and realize I was at 107kg, not sure why it was a shock I drink a lot of coke, eat a lot of chocolate, and after reading up on this website I find out that Lasagne sandwiches are doing me no favours. I have (had) a mantra that
everything tastes better in bread.
I work as an assistant manager at my local pub and my timetable varies widely making it hard for me to get into any sports or scheduled activity, so I will have to get creative with my schedule but I have a dog that would love to be walked more often that he gets now, and a 24 hour gym I can easily get access to.
I have already started making positive steps yesterday my wife and I did the grocery shopping and loaded up on eggs, meat, fish fruit and vegetables. I am planning on eating a diet more in line with a Paleo diet without committing 100% but I am cutting way back on bread, chocolate, coke and pasta.
Also today I managed to get up early and take my dog for a ½ hour walk. I have also made an appointment to go see a doctor for a basic check up and am going to get a referral to get a blood test done so I have a solid base for a base line for when I start the next 6 week challenge.
Anyway I look forward to making some friends and getting healthy
