i thought i would start a thread where we all got fit together, and were eachothers fitness buddies, inspired from bodybuilders "spring shape up" thread, although this one wont be so tough, or have prizes. really its just for our own sake, and i thought what better place to recieve support than from eachother?
really i just want to get fit, healthy, strengthen my lungs and lose some excess weight.
we can all have our own personal plans, regarding on your goal. you can post in here to recieve support. wether youre having a bad day, or youre doing great!
some people may have different nutrition goals, some may have different fitness goals.
these are mine:
i would like to lose excess weight, as i know its bad for my asthma, and health.
i would like to get fit and become strong, and not tire out as easily from simple things.
i would like to strengthen my lungs especially, and my heart and everything else that comes along with it.
i would like to feed my body the most beneficial food i can afford, and give it the best care i can, as i know it deserves it.
heres my meal plan:
i would like to eat 1200-1500 calories a day, getting enough fiber, and 50 grams or more of protein a day.
i would also like to stay away from refined carbs, like white flour or sugar.
i would like to eat as many whole foods as i can. probably around 2 fruits a day, as many veggies as i can, brown rice, lots of lentils/beans, some tofu and soy products, light on the oils and start eating more nuts/seeds. and also not eat for a few hours before i go to sleep.
i would like to up my intake of raw foods.
and i also think ill allow myself one day on the weekend where i allow myself to eat whatever i want. sort of a "cheat" day. i find it helps me to keep focused on healthy eating the rest of the week and not mess up.
i would like to drink 2 litres of water a day.
but i wont be angry with myself if i dont stick to this everyday, as im sure ill vary it from time to time.
this is my fitness plan:
i would like to get some form of exercise 3-5 times a week, for 20 minutes each time. (i cant handle much more than this due to my asthma) hopefully alot of walking and my exercise videos.
i feel that this is a GREAT time to start, as the flowers are sprouting, the sun is starting to shine and fresh fruits and veggies are out in abundance. (not to mention i will soon live with only my bf, and now have more room to do things)
so who is in with me? we can make it sort of a time limit thing, where we can see where were at in a month, or we can just keep it casual and keep going and keep eachother strong.
feel free to post any rants or raves you may have that day if you messed up or didnt workout, etc. this is a supportive thread!
so anyone who wants to join, maybe post your goals, your meal plan, your exercise plan, and then we'll get started!
