Back to Fitness
Monday, April 06, 2020
As I've mentioned in previous blogs, I seem to seesaw back and forth between being obsessed about fitness and being obsessed about writing. I'll go for a few months doing almost nothing but writing, and then I'll go for a few months doing almost nothing but working out and tracking my food. So I seem to be switching back to fitness again now, as writing and fitness are my two main passions. So I'm back to weighing myself daily and keeping track of all of my stats and whatnot. So I will be focusing more on health and fitness in my blogs again now for a while.
The main thing I am focusing on is fitness. I have come up with a good fitness plan and have set a goal to workout 5-6 times a week. This morning I did an easy chair workout and chair stretches and also did some cleaning in our bedroom plus organized our fridge and kitchen cupboard. So I got a pretty good amount of activity in. Plus I got around 2000 steps which isn't too bad considering I've been pretty sedentary lately. My ribs are really sore now from all the exercise but I am feeling motivated nonetheless. I am glad to be back on track and back to working out again. I am looking forward to the progress I will be making in the next few months.
I am also focusing on nutrition pretty heavily. I am making an effort to choose some healthier foods so I have added some more fruits and veggies and whole grains to my meal plan. I have also started tracking my food again. This time I have been good about staying within calorie range. I have actually been under my calorie range this time. Here are my calorie stats for today compared to my calorie stats from January:
So you can see I'm a lot lower on calories. I've been doing well with tracking again, as well, and seeing good progress with my weight loss in the past few weeks.
So I'm going to move forward from here and see what progress I can make. More later.
