AgentP Posted January 13, 2015 Report Share Posted January 13, 2015 So...new to forums but hope by saying it out loud or in this case typing it, I will keep motivated to keep doing it. 42, overweight and out of shape!! And just signed up to coach my daughters football (soccer) team. I used to play but haven't been fit enough for a long time. So I started the Atkins diet a few weeks ago and feel great. Started walking 5kms with a friend a few weeks ago too. Have lost 2 kgs of the necessary 20 and feeling positive for the first time in ages. Now have some self belief I will be able to run around with a bunch of 12 year old girls!!! Then I discovered this app and tried day one and I actually did it (with some serious puffing and panting!!) Even managed day 2 a few days later with a few 5km walks in between. I have just talked my friend into doing it too. So she has done day one and me day three but I will repeat a couple and hopefully pant a little less! Dreading week 2 even though it's only 30seconds more!! But I'm telling myself I can do it and that I want to be a real (read active and participating) coach not just one who yells at training. It might take more than 8 weeks but I currently believe I think i can do it! I needed to type this so it is real. As a first time forumist it feels a bit self indulgent but I guess readers might well have given up reading at paragraph one lol!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
