Gym. To make you feel better?

So I started working out again after many off. My excuse I haven’t got one except just being a lazy so and so. So I managed to get out of bed at 5am and get to the gym for 6am. I know the first week or so you always feel great and start thinking I should’ve done this ages ago etc. This is mainly just a placebo effect. Which is good as exercise is going to help you get fit and make you feel better about yourself. The thing I need help with is the food side. As I live on a tight budget and a family man who doesn’t want to cook seperate foods for everyone. It’s mainly for work where I can prepare it the night before and take it into work the next day for lunch. Has anyone got any good tips that I could try out.

  1. Yes, the starting is the honeymoon phase. It’s the turning-it-into-a-habit thing that’s gonna take more effort. There’s this cookbook that uses ingredients on a small budget and provides alternatives if you don’t have a certain ingredient. You can download a free copy if their first book in https://www.tinybudgetcooking.com/.

    Another thing you can do is make a large batch of something in your free time and store it in portions.

    As for the exercise part you could have a workout buddy and both of you can hold each other accountable when the other one slacks.

    Also, don’t try to do too much at once. You can have a countdown calendar to strike through each day as you go.

    Good luck and as the Chinese say, 加油!(Jia You/fighting!)😁

  2. If you haven’t tried meal prepping your lunches that is always a good place to start. It’s not easy but it’s worth it to have a healthy, hot lunch everyday at work. I still struggle with it but it is a work in progress! Best of luck!
