Wishing you all the luck in your venture!! The best ideas I can give you, one's you've probably read before, that have been helping me:
- Water, drink lots of it! And tea, green tea/white tea! Has helped me so much with feeling fuller despite eating a hell of a lot less than I was!
- Invest in some really good jogger/running shoes! I started off using my skater/everyday shoes and after week two my feet were killing! Bought a pair of Nikes and a pair of ADIDAS runners and that was the best thing I ever did!
- Also buy some good lycra shorts, good for stopping chaffing and a hell of alot more comfortable than just shorts - i wear my lyric shorts under regular shorts.
- Another investment
Buy a heartrate monitor/calorie counter. I've just got around to buying one because not knowing exact amunts of how much i've burnt off or whether i was in the best 'heart rate zone' was driving me nuts!
- Record what you eat, somewhere, anywhere. Writing it down makes me think about whether the food is 'worth it' and become accountable for it!
Anyway they're the best things i've found out so far
