Road to Fitness

Hey guys and girls, hopefully this'll be a diary of success and inspire anyone who reads it to keep going.

I'm currently 22 and fast-approaching my 23rd birthday. As of today I weigh 86kg (13.5st, 189.5lbs), and I'm hoping to drop down to 67/68kg, at least, by the end of February/beginning of March. My ideal would be 55-60kgs; but that'll come later.

My 'smaller' goal is to lose 28lbs by Christmas.

I alternate my cardio and strength days, taking Sundays off to recover, with a decent dinner to spike my calorie intake and hopefully prevent a plateau.

I make a mile-long walk to my local supermarket 4/5 times a week to buy groceries, and walk my dog for 30 minutes every morning and night. Sometimes jogging with the dog, if the weather is right.

Eating is generally a 'whatever is in the house' kinda thing. I always have skinless chicken breasts, pasta, beans and veg on-hand for a quick & easy healthy meal.

I'll be updating the day's activities the morning after or late at night, when the day is done. It'll help me keep track of things.
