Since starting the John Barban's Venus Factor diet and fitness program, I've missed one day because I hurt a muscle going into the reverse lunge too quickly the first time I did them. I'm learning and adjusting. I do all of the workouts at home. I'm one of those people who doesn't feel comfortable at gyms. But I've been buying and setting up a little workout room, and I really love that I can "hit the gym" anytime within minutes. This does work for me.
I rarely have time for breakfast. The program is so simple (not easy). I'm using MYFitnessPal to help keep track of my calories. I am measuring and weighing most everything still because I feel better doing that.
Two reasons: First because I've been so tired for so long. Partly, I'm sure, due to weight, and probably also due to depression. The second reason was that I felt I had to get going first, and see some results before I was feeling motivated to get moving. The first time I worked out… YIKES! I was so sore for days. I could barely sit down on the toilet…lol. But, three days after my first time I did the second workout. I've been slowly working my way through the podcasts, and I'm learning so much from them, this program is not a scam. I deeply recommend them to anyone who hasn't been listening to them, especially the ones on emotional eating. I certainly fall into that category. I had a relationship fall apart three years ago, and everyone knows that can be hard. But he made it even worse by saying horrible things about me I decided I wanted to be fat and gross so no one would ever look at me again. I wanted to hide from the world, and I have been.
But this is dumb. I'm not living my life. I'm just getting through my life. Being overweight is not just aesthetically unpleasing, it's painful. My knees hurt, my ankles hurt, and my back hurts. Not only with the weight, but also the tools to feel happy with me, and not what I think others see in me.
