Hi, I recently decided after months of putting it off and a lot of "I'll start next week"s, I finally am going to start getting more fit.
I'm currently 21 (near enough 22) and about 12stone, I have a bit of a belly but I wouldn't consider myself 'big' as such, like puppy fat that never went away that not eating or exercising enough isn't go away and is just getting 'added to'. I don't quickly get tired of things, thus I can have the same meal for a few weeks straight without really getting bored of it.
Anyways, after finishing college and still job hunting, most of my days are the same daily routine; wake up around midday, have a shower & get dressed, grab lunch (which is 99% a couple of sausage rolls from a multi pack), then spend most of the day on my computer job searching and other stuff. For my dinners around 6/7pm I usually stick to some form of chicken or other meat like turkey and something made from the only vegetable I've ever really like, potato, which could be fries, potato waffles, etc. I also drink a lot of Dr Pepper and Monster Energy at the moment too, trying to cut back on that though.
So in short I'm just asking for a bit of help getting a new daily routine down and more specifically a new diet. I'm a bit of a picky eater, it's just who I am, but I know for a fact that I don't like 99% of vegetables, or any soups/liquidy foods, or any 'foreign' foods like curries or chinese food, so this obviously makes it a bit harder. I'm planning to start doing a daily walk in the morning, gradually making it longer each week and start exercising at home until I can get a job then start going the gym again.
Anyway, thanks for ready all this and any & help/advice is really appreciated.
My name is Emily, I have a couple of suggestions. I have recently started getting my self in shape, I have been a vegetarian for 7 years and a vegan for about a year, so I completely understand the whole, being a pick eater. Although most people assume automatically that being a vegan means your healthy it does not. I unfortunately didn't focus at all on the nutrients I am getting. I have been working in an office environment for the past four years and finally became fed up with the couch potato I became.
I understand that it can be difficult to be disciplined in excercise and taking supplements and eating properly, but in the end, if what you want is to be healthier and feel better about yourself, then you will achieve that.
When you start on this road to a healthier you, I have found great supplements.
Anyways, I started taking these supplements myself as well, For me personally gaining energy is a priority, after about three days taking these products I started getting up about two hours earlier, and its not a sugar high jittery type of energy, its a more awake focused feeling.
I hope this helps, and if you need more advice on what products you may want to take let me know
