Go Geo Lifestyle to Turn Life Around by 40 — Day 7

Today marks a full week since I first started the fitness regime–a small milestone, but a notable milestone nonetheless. I’m encouraged by my progress thus far, but as far as my ultimate goals are concerned, I’m still far from satisfied.

warning, caution, beware

It was tough getting adjusted to this new lifestyle (especially after an extended period of inactivity and unhealthy eating), but I’m ready to move past this initial adjustment phase and look to really start pushing myself to do better.

My precious lucky white shorts, never let you be washed again. So one week down the track and it the big way in, when I looked at today photo VS day zero I didn’t really see any changes. However, as I couldn’t wait anymore have done my weekly way in which even though it does not show I am pleased with.

For instance, I know that I need to be more diligent if I’m going to have any lasting success. I started to ease into a routine during this first week, but I ended up ignoring some bad habits that were developing, particularly my inadequate method of dealing with cravings. There will certainly be more issues I’ll have to address moving forward, and I need to be prepared for whatever comes my way. After all, I wouldn’t want all my progress to go to waste if I mess up a couple of months in. Still, I’m confident that I’ll be able to overcome any new obstacle as long as I keep my goals in mind.

Even though it’s only been a week, and I haven’t noticed a whole lot of improvement in my body composition, I definitely feel a lot better than I did a week before. Don’t get me wrong, I still fully intend to get back in shape and build a little muscle along the way, but I’m very excited about how rewarding it is to take care of yourself. The fact that I’ll feel even better as I continue the regime is what really motivates me to keep going.

Here’s to another week of positive growth (and many more after that).

Daily Planner of Geo Life Accountability Day 7

Day off today so it’s ok to chill a bit? Right? I have to say I am enjoying down periods less and less, however, I think through a lifetime of habit draw to them. I had plans today but my wife wanted to go to the beach as is her weekend off, so that took up some time. I by being accountable am noticing more when I am doing nothing, and there is a growing itch to undertake a task that adds value rather than mindless tasks that detract value.

I think for sure I can get up a little earlier especially on a day off, as the bone-deep exhaustion just is not there. While the unexpected trip to the beach was not expected ended up enjoying it, and while there got my exercises in. I am feeling a little less give a fucks now in public which is new for me and a great feeling. Making time to make time for exercise is not natural yet, but because I am being mindful of my time then it just seems to happen.

One week of exercise, years ago late twenties I did a few months, however this is the first time in a decade i have made a concerted effort for a full 7 days in a row and it feels great.
