Today was waaay easier than day 1. My body legs aren’t sore anymore. I completed 1 mile in 21 minutes. I never went above 3.5 mph on my treadmill (its a cheap $200 treadmill and I put it together). If I’m able to truly invest myself into changing my life style after so many months then I might purchase a real heavy duty treadmill from Sears.com that’s put together by a real professional and they can carry this one out but that’s in the back burner for now until I see I can truly commit to this.
I know this is going to sound weird but during this point of my journey I am not going to weigh myself. I decided this while working out. The reason why I don’t want to weigh myself is because for one my objective is not to lose weight right now. My objective is to implement exercising into my daily life for the rest of my life and strengthening my body. This time around I just want everything to be natural. It needs to be apart of my daily schedule and once that has happened then I’ll start intentionally targeting weight loss and then I’ll weigh myself. But for those who are curious, the last time I weighed myself I was 253 lbs the heaviest I’d ever been and this was about 2 weeks ago.
The second reason why I am not weighing myself right now is because I’m one of those people that will stress themselves out until no end. If I see my weight or progress whether its gain, loss or the same. I’ll keep pushing myself to work out, not eat or I’ll tell myself, “oh you can eat, you lost weight”. I’ve done this in the past many many times and it always results in me giving up. In the end I’m okay with it because I’ve pushed myself too much. This early in the game I don’t want to do that. The only obligation I have right now is to just exercise. Get that one mile in for the next two weeks and then we’ll start cooking.
