Exercise - Ed's journal
Well, it still seems to be working - this working out thing. The scales ticks gradually lower each day (on average :/)
Getting gradually better on the nutrition balance, although my food intake does seem to end up a bit odd (quite a lot of fruit, some nuts, and a sandwich in the evening sort of way).
Don't end up feeling hungry though, so that's good.

Been going to the Gym mornings this week - getting up in the mornings gets easier I've found, and I'm now at a point where I managed (just) to row 9km in 40 minutes this morning. Which I'm quite pleased with. Even if that did mean my heart rate was a bit above the 70-80% max heart rate range that I've been trying to sustain. (11m at 90%+ MHR, which is ... erm. I'm not sure that's good or bad actually. It's quite a lot though)

And been going for a walk at lunchtime, and so have managed to be well above my 'daily steps' targets for the last few days.

Well, anyway. I'm generally noticing energy levels being better (getting to the gym basically every work day for the last month is something of a minor miracle) and I'm sleeping better. I think I'm also snoring less. (which would presumably be why).

All to the good. But never the less, despite all the scales information, the one thing that keeps the enthusiasm going is people noticing. And they have been, which is good. I'm coming up on the point where my rate of weight loss is starting to plateau I think, which is going to be the next challenge.

But we'll see if the enthusiasm persists.

Well done for making the effort.

As a second note, it is worth making the effort when you are young as it gets harder when you get older. The body is less tolerant of sprains and you get less result for your exercise.
