Yesterday while walking my shins started to hurt. I haven't walked any sort of distance for many years. Bad knees will do that to you. Anyway, I looked at the Spark walking program and I think I started out too fast. I did over a mile 3 days in a row. It was just so fun to get outside and do something, I couldn't stop. No big deal, I'll just do the exercise bike for a few days until the shins feel better.
I have to remember it's going to be a long journey. My body fat per cent is in the obese range and my bmi is in the overweight range. Probably this is the worst shape I have ever been in. My wife says there was one other time, I was this overweight. She is awesome she said "You were able to do it then why not now?" I'm thinking yeah she is right why not? What a great partner I have. It took a long time last time, to get really in shape and I was younger then. A little daunting to try to think about the end result. So one step at a time me. Don't try to do it all in one day. I'm not going to give up this time no matter what.
I'm using the food tracker, drinking tons of water, and doing some exercise. So that's going to be my focus, not where I am at or where I am going. Though I think I will buy some new sweats in two weeks as a reward to myself if I do the food tracer and water every day . Good luck to everyone today and keep going even if you fall down for a day. Just get up brush yourself off, shake your head, chuckle at life's challenges and take that next step.
