Today it begins, my healthy mid-life crisis.
I’m going to spend 100 days getting fit. So here are the rules:
- I will be tracking what I eat – everything.
- I will be doing at least 30 minutes exercise a day.
Now my current situation:
Weight: 16st 7lb
Exercise: I have no idea – I don’t exercise!
To be clear, I’m too young to have a mid-life crisis, I’m only 35. But I’ve been inspired to write this blog by a Youtube series called 100 days (see here). If you’ve never come across John Green and the vlogbrothers, you’re welcome, your life just got better. In the series they had ‘a healthy midlife crisis’ where they exercised, ate well and supported each other. But they had dietitians, personal trainers and lots of help. Not to mention that John is a professional youtuber, meaning he can justify spending that long each day exercising.
I have a busy job, a young family and no help. But I do need to get fit, so I’m asking you all to help me by keeping me accountable. I will share each week how it’s going.
Last note – my wife, Carole, is also going to join me in doing this. She has not given me permission to share her weight, so I won’t be!
