So I just got married, and all that chaos is mostly past. I should be able to stick to a schedule now and exercise regularly. I’m planning on drinking Soylent at work and for meals not prepared with my wife, roughly 33% of calories. I don’t know how regularly I’ll update this but I wanted a topic to document my journey towards weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.
Goal #1: No more fast food. Why get junk calories when I can consume good calories from Soylent.
Goal #2: No dining out except for date nights with my wife. I plan on cooking healthy meals that can be eaten over a couple days. I like to cook so this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Hopefully I can convince my SO on this.
Goal #3: I want to exercise every other day, gradually working up intensity to prevent any injury and to acclimatize myself to exercising again.
Goal #4: Get back into running by signing up for a 5K run. That’ll give me a time-frame to work towards and hopefully keep me motivated. I used to run cross-country in high school, and I miss that.
I currently weigh 260 pounds, and I hope to get down to 180 eventually. I’ll be using a couch to 5K app for running sessions three times a week, and doing calisthenics on my fourth days of the week. If anyone can suggest a better weight-loss program that safely builds up in intensity, I’ll consider it.
TL;DR - More exercise, healthier food to include Soylent ~ 33%
