    And so begins the Journey..

    Ha.. Finally it is here..

    I have been working (thinking and trying) to start my own checking-in thread for a while, but as many of you know procrastination and laziness delayed it till now.
    I have been working with Darebee working since a very long time (the oldest pdf on my phone was from 2016), but it is very recently that I found this amazing hive..
    So here I go (the intro might be quite lengthy)...

    My current condition is, I don't like the way my body looks in mirror. I want to improve that, essentially get a toned body with visible muscles.
    My idea of fitness is to be able to catch that bus/train just in time, go up and down the stairs and be able to breath normally. Atleast thats it for now.

    As for the measurements, I weigh 79Kg @ 5' 4" which is on the border line to being obese. I have always been around 68-70Kg when I felt fitter and ok.

    That known, my plan is to get down to 65 kg while making a habit of working out regularly (eventually make it a part of my everyday routine), then maintain weight below 70kg from there on.

    During the past 3 months I am trying to make a plan that works for me as I travel a lot and that disturbs any schedule. I travel once in every 3 weeks for 3 days during which sleep is not that great as I will be travelling at nights. Due to this I doubt if a continuous streak can be maintained...
    And So I made a couple of rules for my self

    1. Never miss working out for more than 2 days continuously
    2. on the worst case scenario, go for a 5K walk/jog/run or a combination of those three ( this I can do just by walking around in the airport, I hope..)

    My diet as of now (for weight loss) is (based on part intermittent fasting, part warrior diet and something that works for me)

    1. dry fruits, nuts and fruits during the day.
    2. Home cooked good food at night (regular Indian - 1 cup cooked dal, 3-4 roti, 2 cups vegetable curry). The type of dal and vegetables changes every day. Non-Vegetarian twice a week.
    3. Tea with milk and a spoon sugar as and when required (I hate coffee and used to consume a lot of tea, now down to 5-6 cups a day).

    For Workouts, My plan is:
    1. Power up
    2. 90 days of action
    3. Athena's playbook
    4. Back & Core
    1 long run on the weekend - atleast of 10K.

    I do get ample sleep ( weekdays - minimum 6-7 hours, weekends - 8-10 hours) & rest both before and after the workouts.

    My plan is to make the morning workouts a routine after getting up, keep the 90 days of action, power up and back&core to be regular and at evenings athena's playbook, Iron born & Cardio Trim in that order.
    I wish to keep doing power up and back & core programs along with 90 days of action 3 times.

    So bees, wish me luck and any suggestions to change my program is always welcome.
    I'll try and update everyday to make my self accountable. (if I update weekly, I will be trying to do all the workouts on the weekend before updating the thread.. )



      Welcome to the Hive, vrsthe1! I look forward to following your progress: sounds like you mean business!πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌ

        Good luck
        My only suggestion is to do a workout you like and not be afraid to change it and adapt it as you go on


          Day 1:

          Power up - 1/30
          90 Days of Action - 1/90
          Athena's Playbook - 1/30
          Back & Core - 1/30

          Thank You noname, Fremen and especially DorothyMH ..

          Fremen, exactly I have tried multiple combinations of programs on Darebee with varied results about how I feel. mostly it was that I reach a point where I am either completely exhausted, or have to take a break to travel and lost the continuity.

          And now I have finally started this check-in as both accountability and also to motivate and inspire myself by looking at how far have I come and move ahead. This motivation/inspiration was required as, I started 3 challenges in august completed 1 and other 2 I stopped at 26th day.. I mean like it's 4 more days... I could have done 2 per day and finished it, but didn't do, only if I could have looked back at how far I came.

          So, here I am now.. Fresh start with a clear log.

          It is a L.O.N.G. WAY AHEAD..


            Wow, is that FOUR programs you’re starting?!😱πŸ₯³

              yeah I used to run a lot.. and I think I have a lot of free time..
              I am doing power up and 90 days of action in the morning and athena's playbook,Back & core in the evening..

              The thing is after I do morning workouts, I get to sleep pretty well travelling to work for about an hour.. and the same at evening while returning, so I do feel fresh to start the evening with a workout.
              Earlier I tried doing many things without a proper schedule or plan and suffered (basically inconsistency and loss of any gains.. )

              But Yeah, as Fremen said,I will continue to do as long as I feel okay, it is my idea to make the morning workout a routine, make a habit and stick to it. The evening part, lets see how life happens...


                Oh I see; that makes sense. As opposed to adding a bunch of challenges that may or may not happen, you are sticking to the programs at least for the morning piece. I get it. Go for that, then!!πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜Ž
