My Personal Struggle With Fitness – Day 10

Max Atlas Year of Change Day Ten

being a winner is harder than being a loser
Mandatory New Think Warning Reg: FO99

After ten days, I am losing weight, which is pretty good progress for just a little over a week. I’m really proud of myself for having done such a good job so far, even if the visual results aren’t really that noticeable just yet. If I keep up the good work, eventually I’ll be looking as good as I feel. For now, though, all I’ve got is the archetypal “dad bod”, and I can’t exactly say I’m proud of that.

I’ve become somewhat accustomed to the food in the diet plan, although I do still get cravings for unhealthy food every now and then. Instead of just ignoring my cravings outright, I’ve been trying out some healthy alternatives that can somewhat approximate the taste. For example, I sometimes buy fizzy water when I feel like drinking a beer or soda, and the other night I made oven-baked potato wedges when I started craving chips. These clearly won’t be able to fully replace the foods I’ve grown accustomed to eating over the years, but at least I can manage my cravings in a better way than before.

Happy overall with progression, day 10 one day one felt miles away, now it’s here and while visibly not great improvement my self-confidence is improving and am less short of breath going upstairs.

As far as my workouts go, I feel that my muscles have readjusted to the stress of rigorous activity, so I’m ready to start lifting a little heavier. This past week or so has mainly been about getting back into a groove but now is when the real work begins. Exercising is going to be a lot tougher from tomorrow, but pushing myself to the limit is necessary for continued growth, so I’m ready for anything.

Day 10 of the Year of Change Wrap Up

Day ten was great, I let my body rest ready for tomorrow but kept up the walk/light jog. Defiantly feeling tired with the early mornings but hoping my body will adjust to this soon enough. Clean eating without waist is something I always thought would be excessively expensive, however by grabbing what’s on offer and being willing to substitute meals along with cutting out vices I am actually not using my credit card for the first time in ages.

Certainly this is going to take time, but the journey is enjoyable so far, and I hope I continue to grow holistically.
