Who would have thunk this?

Not walking 4 miles a day and doing very little exercise, basically means you put on weight.

No I couldn’t believe it either, but that is exactly what has happened to me. One problem is that I am not sure how much I have put on, because I don’t own a set of scales. But I know I am bigger.

I also am well aware I am very unfit, so Tuesday I started doing exercise, just some very simple things, like sit ups and star jumps. To give you an idea on how unfit I am at the moment, I struggled to do 10 sit ups.

My plan is to start off slowly and then work my way up to at least 50 and beyond, not sure how long that is going to take, but I really need to get into some sort of shape. I am also struggling to get to and from the school, by the time we get back I am breathing heavily and while I wish I could put it all down to my anxiety, that would be sticking my head in the sand and pushing a mountain on top.

This, is me taking accountability for the fact that 4 months of doing bugger all, has fucked my body over quite a bit. I am going to now take steps to remedy this. I may measure my stomach and see how big it is, and then hopefully watch it go down. I can honestly say most of it is due to me being inactive rather than my diet, although cutting down my drinking is also going to happen as well. Because guess what that has gone up as well.

    I saw from afar how you organized the Lego bit by bit until it was done. I believe you can do the same for your exercise plan. I need one too! Must move da body!
