The second half of last year did not go according to plan. Whilst in the first half i did a decent job of getting my weight down to 115kg, after july i lost all motivation to go to the gym (or for much to do with healthy living - as evidenced by my absence from the Rebellion). My 'new' job became incredibly stressful and i don't think i realised how much i relied upon my support/encouragement network of friends at my old work. Christmas hit in all its boozy, delicious glory, as did an ear infection and impacted molar tooth, both on the same side, leaving me feeling very sorry for myself.
All of which is to say that instead of losing 15kg, i gained them, ballooning up to 130kg. I have since dropped down to 127kg (the inevitable due to mice pies not being readily offered at every turn), but it's not anywhere close to enough. I need to get back on it. I have one simple goal for this first challenge of the year:
Get down to 124kg
It's not a simple goal and 3kg is not a big number to drop. But i know i don't want to set myself too lofty a goal first up. This is all about getting back into good habits. If i can do this, it's a good starting point. In order to get there i will
Visit the gym 3 times a week
I need to get moving again, having been far too sedentary recently. Squats, deadlifts, bench press, KB swings, sled pushes, all will be bought back into the routine.
No takeaways or fizzy drinks
Simple and obvious, with little explanation needed.
One of my big issues is snacks. I like to have a mid morning and mid afternoon snack. If i have done my prep properly, it'll be a pot of porridge, some fruit, or something thats at least healthy. If I haven't done my prep, it'll be whatever takes my fancy from the vending machine. Surprise surprise, i have been awful at getting my snacks prepped.
Note: there's no theme for this challenge. This is all about...
