I'm new on here, and kinda just stumbled accross the site afta trying to find some encouragement to lose weight. I'm just finishing my degree as a registered nurse, and as any of you who have studied might know, you tend to put on a lot of weight and lack exercise when you hit the books. Just 3 years ago I was a thin fit little chicky, but sadly I found it was easier to eat takeouts while I study for an upcomming exam than to eat a carrot and go for a run (lol).
Anywho, now that it all feels like it's comming to an end, I'm feeling a bit more motivated and have even thought of training for a half marathon! As you might imagine, I'm rather unfit and so running/walking for 21km would be suicide if I decided to do it tomorrow! This is why I have given myself a year to train for this. Yes I know it's a long time to stick to the training, but hopefully by the time it rolls around I'll be in tip top shape and look HOT for next summer. Hopefully, I'll also lose that 30kg that I've managed to put on over the last 3 years.. creepy little buggers those extra kgs!
I'd very much appreciate any support or tips any one has. Basically all I plan to do is eat a lot more healthily (a lot of salads and lean meat with only a few carbs, and NO comfort eating!) and do 30 - 40 minutes cardio exercise every day.
