Here we go again! Yup I’m writing a new blog post which will no doubt include plans for the year ahead which will quite easily be forgotten about within a few weeks as life takes over and the joy of eating a deep fried chicken leg overtakes the feeling of pain from doing 20 press ups at 6am in the morning.
I say this but this time I will stick to it… I will … I promise. I intend to sue this blog to ensure I stick at it, to ensure I loose some weight. I recently hit the grand old age of 45 and I am ever increasingly aware that I’m at least half way through my life, and if I want to ensure I have another 44 years I have to improve my health and overall fitness. I used to work on my feet all day in retail however during the past 5 years I’ve became a desk jockey, looking at a screen and answering phone calls. I’ve turned into a couch potato in all aspects of my life which I know isn’t healthy or good for me.
So what are my goals and plans?
Exercise- I will lay out a 6 month exercise plan using a fitness tracking booklet (on its way from the wonderful Amazon) where I will note calories and exercises done each day along with measurement’s on my body monthly. I hope to see changes here.
Reading- I don’t read. Simple! so any reading I do is an improvement, I at a minimum want to rad a book a month so 12 books a year. I will use the Goodreads reading challenge to show this which I will link here once setup. I feel this will help my chill and reduce any stress from work or life.
Support- I’d love to see the readers of this page work along with me as I follow this journey. I will be putting up how I’ve done and what I’ve done to achieve any results I get (or what I have to change should those results not happen). If your working alongside me then shout out. Get in contact or use the hashtag #grumpfitness on twitter.
So let’s see how we do with updates every Sunday starting 8th January 2023. Wish me luck!
