I’ve done it! All obsolete emails, gone. All unfinished blogs and unused accounts, gone. I have chosen a focus, I’m not sure why I didn’t think about this before. I have always had a love of fitness, well, in between bouts of depression. This blog is a great way to keep me motivated and accountable. Fitness helps my mood to stabilize and I feel all around wonderful when I am taking care of my body, mind and soul.
This blog is my home base. My diary. As someone suffering from bipolar disorder it helps me to write down my thoughts and to have a regular plan and schedule. Taking care of my mind and spirit through meditation (and other means that are yet to be explored throughout this journey) and my body through a fitness plan. I am posting my plan, my goals and my progress here, good or bad.
I have decided to start with a 30 day challenge. I have already posted my starting photo (It was hard for me to do because I am not happy with my weight right now, but I am devoted to the plan). There, I will also post my weekly workouts with a starting photo for the week on each page. Calorie intake for the days will also be included. I have written my goal calorie intake for now, but will update my actual intake which I will track using “My Fitness Pal“, an app for Android or iPhone.
My starting date for this plan is December 26, 2014. Wish me luck!
