For those who are not aware, I am embarking on a 12-month Happiness Project, with a different challenge each month designed to brighten my mood. My challenge for February is to work on my health and fitness. That’s not necessarily to say I intend to lose loads of weight or run a marathon or start lifting massive weights; I just want to be more active and eat a more healthy diet.
That said, I will track my weight and measurements throughout the month, to track any progress made.
Here are my starting figures… *deep breath*
Weight: 12 st 2lb
Rather worryingly, according to the NHS BMI Calculator, this gives me a BMI of 30.1 and makes me obese.
This handy chart shows the situation a little more clearly:
Clearly I have a fair bit of work to do, and it won’t be finished by the end of February! A few people have suggested I should carry this challenge on for two months so as to ensure I’ve really got back into the habit of eating properly and being more active. I’m as yet undecided about that to be honest.
For the moment, I plan to keep plodding along. I will publish an update like this once a week to track my progress. I’m not sure I’m feeling brave enough to post any pictures just yet, but hopefully I will get to that point.
