Mission Statement For My 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
I feel like I’ve been running into the wind for too long. Time to run with that shit at my back. No more fucking excuses.
I’ve spent so many days hurting my own progress through a lack of willpower. Now is the time to finally get to the ideal weight for my height. 195lbs.
For the next 30 days I’m gonna use the calorie counter featured inside my Fenix 3 to track calories expended. I will be logging all of my calories eaten each day inside Myfitnesspal and as long as the calories expended is greater than the total taken in then the day will be considered a success.
I am tired of going backwards. I need to accept that I’m at one of my best levels of fitness since I started this blog and to capitalise on that by attempting to even eat halfway right.
At the minute I’m just feeling bloated after over indulging on food on holiday. This is how bad periods start for me. I over indulge and then eat more to feel better.
For a 10lb total weight loss I will need an overall deficit of 35000 kilocalories which comes out at a 1,160 calories deficit per day. I will try to burn those calories running so that I can keep a deficit easily with food.
I will be logging all the foods I eat inside of Myfitnesspal and posting a log of it at the end of each day on this blog.
My first meal. Sausage and pancakes at McDonald’s.
This will be an experiment that will prove that you can lose weight by jogging easily and being accountable with food. From here I’m only moving forwards. If I don’t force this issue now then I’ll be struggling with my weight for the rest of my life.
If you’ve only just started on a New Year’s resolution to lose weight then hopefully this experiment will encourage you to continue running and making better choices.
It’s not really that funny when you’re a weight loss blogger who can’t actually fucking lose weight. It’s like being a mechanic who has an uncanny knack of making the cars he touches spontaneously combust. Good as a party trick but fucking annoying after a while.
Who honestly wants to watch the same person struggle year after year?
There is hope for change and that hope can only ever be transformed into something tangible by putting your plan into action today.
Today I’m going back to basics. I’m counting my calories. I’m not drinking and I am going to achieve what I set out to do this month. 31 days of blogging completed. Closing in on 450 days without booze. Let’s keep this shit rolling.
