My Fitness Journey | Before I start

It feels so weird writing this blog post for the first time. I never thought that I would ever want to do it. I'm not the type of person that's into my fitness or healthy eating. I love food (unhealthy food more so), exercise just sounds so difficult to me. I have been complaining about my body for so long. So enough is enough! I need to make a change. I have decided that I had enough of being unhappy about my body. I said to myself, why are you always complaining and not doing anything about it?
I have never been the skinniest girl or the biggest. But I have been overweight for a long time. In primary school, I used to do so much exercise. Then I had massive problems with my asthma when I was about 12/13 - due to this I didn't want to run again. It put me off massively. Then my body started to get used to me not doing anything. Now when I try to do exercise my body hates me and I really struggle to keep it up.

Pictures of me a year ago, the same weight as I am now. It's the latest pictures I have of my full-length body

The before I start part of this title might have confused you a bit. So this is what it's all about... It's before I start doing the exercise properly. Before I start with my personal trainer and before I start learning what healthy eating is. It's basically me starting from the beginning with no knowledge at all.  

My fitness goals
  • Lose weight 
  • Get rid of unwanted fat
  • Learn how to eat a nutritious diet 
  • Be able to do a press up or maybe even 10
  • Gain arm strength 
  • Do workouts at least 3 times a week
These are my fitness goals for starting out. Now I know that some of them will take longer time than others, but it's always good to set goals for yourself to achieve. For me, this helps me to keep going. I'm hoping to achieve just one of these in a couple of months time. I want to be realistic whilst at the same time not feeling bad about myself if I don't reach them. It's all about starting somewhere.
I'm looking forward to looking back on this blog post to see how far I have come in a years time. It'll really show my journey and progression. 

See you next time for another.
