>>16646187 It's couch to 5k. Part of the program is you take breaks like every other day at first. Also, I'm not trying to build muscle (I've got enough of that because of my job), I'm trying to lose fat
I'm 195 cm, 75 kg so I'm normal in European terms and skinny in USA.
It's 15:30 and I'm starving myself at the moment while drinking tea to cover it up. For lunch I'll have a salad, some chicken and a piece of potato. I'll dine a bit before going to sleep, a banana/apple or a piece of bread.
The point is that right now you have a twisted view on food, you think that what you eat is normal when in fact it could feed a family of three.
>>16646190 Take walks on your rest days. The biggest thing is to be consistent until working out becomes a habit instead of occasional. I hope you have your diet in order because that's more important than a workout routine.
>>16646182 Stick it out for a month or two, and you'll probably become addicted. It takes willpower at first. I did it before, and the first two months were suffering, but afterward I was so happy to workout that I actually overdid it.
Don't forget to gradually introduce changes to your diet, as well.
>>16646182 You need to make it a habit. For the first week do it every day. Even if you don't feel like it just do it for five minutes. Once you have done it consistently for a number of days it'll become part of your lifestyle. You won't have to force it.
>>16647065 Not getting injured is a big part of it. I developed tendinitis and it fucked with my workout regime. Also all the running on concrete fucked my knee up too. Always run on something somewhat soft like a track or grass.
>>16646182 Make it enjoyable. Make sure you have lots of good music to listen to on your iPod or MP3. I actually listen to podcasts like Joe Rogan or Anthony Cumia. Half the time on my walks im trying not to laugh my ass off like a crazy person.
Pick a spot that you like. Maybe walking down the sidewalk is a bit boring. Hit the local boardwalk where you will see hot chicks and street performers etc. Makes it a bit interesting.
>>16647223 Don't know if you're serious, but I doubt an overweight beginner could do 3.1 miles on their first day. I used to weigh 360 (now 180) and I could barely run for like a minute when I started.
>>16647630 Because running speeds up the process. I've also done working out before and it's really good for your self esteem. Plus, it never hurts to be able to run.
>>16647223 It's just a popular running routine. You start off by running for like 5, 90 second intervals of running cut between 30 seconds of brisk walking in between a warm up walk and cool down walk
>because you're more than capable of doing 5k nonstop in your first run
You can't just go 0 to 100 out of nowhere as >>16647223 mentioned. It would be too much of a shock to your system. I could do 5k but it would be extremely painful. It would be running into a wall.
>>16647245 I've already cut out most refined sugars. Snacking is still a bit of an issue though. I stopped going to the store which means I don't buy chips anymore but I live with my parents and they keep a shit ton of unhealthy shit in the pantry and it's a little difficult to resist. I don't pig out but I eat more than i'd like to
>>16648338 >>16648190 talking from personal experience, i certainly did. it took a week to get my cardio in shape, then a couple more weeks for the irritation to fade. but then again i didn't weigh 360 pounds
>>16648403 Yeah, not many people get as big as I was so I guess it's different. As long as OP isn't going overboard with exercise then that's good. Hopefully I wasn't coming off rude or anything, just didn't want OP to think he has to go crazy to lose weight.
Well it depends if you like the Cardio that you do right now. If its fun to you you will most likely stick to it. If its boring finds something else like jogging cycling or sports like soccer oh and also do it everyday for atleast 30-40 mins but 60 min are perfect
>>16646182 I just do a random julian micheals video on YouTube at least every other day. (I only don't do one if I had a long day at work, like 8 hours on my feet, but if I feel like it after those days I still do)
I also radically changed my diet.
Since August I've only lost like 35 pounds, but I feel better at least, it's a slow process.
