There are days where I just feel terribly unhealthy and I'd like for that to be over with once and for all. I'm 6'3 and 230 pounds, and I've had a build like this for all of my life. I've never really enjoyed lifting weights, etc, and while I enjoy running, I get discouraged from doing it remarkably easy. There were definitely periods of time where I would run several times a week, but I'd inevitably give up each time after promising myself that it would be different.
To make matters worth, I have fairly unhealthy eating habits. This is another thing I've just fallen into and would get out of for several weeks before falling back in. Unfortunately, the options at the campus dining hall, in combination with my inability to cook and my limited funds means my eating habits have done nothing but go downhill. My goal is weight loss and developing a regular routine of exercise.
So to anyone who can even vaguely relate, how did you deal with it? Not only in terms of routines and frugal shopping tips, but inspiration? I desperately want this to be the last time I end up disappointing myself.
