ParylPanda Posted July 1, 2022 Report Share Posted July 1, 2022 01 July 2022 Let's start with the brutal truth, shall we? At 35 years of age: I weigh in at 83kg/183lbs - around 23kg overweight I have very little mental and physical energy I basically never cook and we eat some form of take-out every day (partially because I don't particularly like cooking) Aside from the past 2 weeks or so, I have been completely sedentary for the past few years I don't like where I am anymore. I want to have the energy to get important things done (my house is such a mess and desperately need a declutter [just burning it down is more tempting tbh], but I just don't have the energy). but more importantly, be there for my daughter. Currently, I am a horrible role model and I don't want to see her growing into what I am. Change is needed and I feel like I am in a place where I am ready for it. Especially since I am also in a place where I can accept that the most important changes will take a while. Most times I want to go from someone who doesn't cook to someone who cooks most days and have it all planned out. No more. Small changes that will become habits. Because habits stick. I've started working through the Academy and have the following identity goals: I weigh in at a healthy weight I have mental and physical energy I cook bulk meals for lunches and healthy dinners 3-4 times a week I work out regularly and have investigating the wonders of powerlifting I journal regularly I am struggling to visualise timelines, which I know is one of the most important parts of effectively working towards a goal. For the moment, I am not going to let the lack stop me - I can either spend days or weeks trying to come up with the perfect path to these goals, or I can get started and then re-evaluate. I will make my start by setting goals for a month at a time - post for June to have more details. 1 Quote Link to comment
