Second week of November, so we’re well into second year of college now. With freshman 15, frequent late night food delivery and fast food runs, inconsistent sleeping schedules and sporadic gym sessions, I just don’t feel like I’m functioning at 100%.
So let’s change that. After all,
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
And of course, starting stats:
CW: 137 lbs.
According to most BMI charts, I’m within the healthy range (pretty much smack in the middle, really). The thing is, having been very active in high school, the sudden lack of activity combined with copious amounts of junk and cafeteria food results in uneven fat distribution.
It’s like that one description of Bridget in Ann Brashares’ Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series - I can’t remember the particular book, but basically the concept was that when Bridget stopped playing soccer, there was fat accumulation on her stomach and thighs, which looked really disproportionate to the rest of her body.
Goal here is to: lose excess fat deposits, gain muscle mass.
So net weight change won’t be that significant. And it’s going to be done through all healthy means -
Exercising more and eating healthier (by incorporating more fruits and vegetables, having more balanced meals at more consistent times, etc.)
Let’s get this started - step one, here we go!
