My weekend at CentreParcs has shown me 2 things.
1) Longleat CentreParcs is hilly, and I am desperately unfit! I spent most the time wandering around knackered from all the hills and steps
2) Some clothes I bought only a year ago, no longer fit properly.
Now, i'm not huge by any means, but this weekend has hit home that I'm not getting any younger, and I can't just eat whatever I want and get away with it anymore.
I did a BMI test this morning, and i'm in the overweight section for the first time, and I don't like it, so today starts the long road to a better Trooper...
I know BMI isn't the be all and end all of tests, but for someone who wants to lose weight, tone up and get fitter, it seems the right thing to track, or is it?
My plan is to join the gym as I have done many times before, but this time actually go. Before I've only ever thought I should go, rather than need to go, so hopefully I might stick to it a bit more. Plus i'm writing this post so it can get bumped in the future as a reminder if need be
and track my progress.
I have logged in to my fitocracy, for the first time in forever and have added all the beexers in the beex group.http://www.fitocracy.com/profile/trooperlooper/
