For the foreseeable future, i'll be posting writing prompts every day and answering them.
On a scale from one to ten, how healthy are you?
Starting off strong here, so let's get into it.
About 14 months ago I lost my job, fell into a semi-depression, and started to punish myself by withholding snacks and soda. I stuck with it for about six months when a good friend suggested I check out a local gym a few people I knew had started. I resisted, joining a gym sounded like the worst idea in the world. Don't get me wrong, I'd been a member of a gym before, found out that I got quite addicted to it, but ended up hurting my knee and retreating to my couch. But I found out that this gym was different. NerdStrong... yep, that's the name.
Eight months and about 40 pounds later, i'm healthier, but no where near in shape. I work out about 5 times a week, see a nutritionist, starting to eat clean for the next six weeks and hopefully will drop another 10 pounds. It's hard, but satisfying to see the changes.
How healthy am i? I'd give it a 7 on the way to a 10.
