The Journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. One aspect of fitness I shyed away from was weight training because I wasn't sure if I could. It's intimidating to walk into a gym and see buddy benching 225 while you struggle to do 10 reps with a 20 lb dumbbell. Most of my adult life I have been an average build and I often get comments on how "I need to eat a cheeseburger to put on some weight". Well I've been down that road also. I grew up as a fat kid and I'd never put myself through that again so may as well gain weight the better way. So I basically said fuck it I'm going to go in and start with what I can do and go from there. I've been doing it for about 2 weeks (every second day with cardio on off days) and I've noticed improvements already with how much I'm able to lift. As far as dieting goes I am not counting calories because that's too much math for me. I just cut out all unnatural sugars, no pop, fruit juice (just coffee and water) and started eating more fruits and vegetables into my diet. Cut out some frozen food and opted to cook meals instead and only ate till I was satisfied. Here's to constantly improving! #fitness#gym#edmonton#yeg#780#587#selfie#progresspic
