Went for a 5km walk this afternoon. I live in a really beautiful area when I'm not on my phone playing Pokémon go

I've gone out again today, but I don't feel happy being out and about with my partner. I feel sluggish and tired.

This will get better as your cardio fitness improves. Keep going.

I'm feeling agitated by the smallest things 😞 I am proud of myself for walking for 1 hour! 4.4km. Hope to do 5km next time though 💪

First step is often the hardest but it's usually alright once you're out there! 😊 Well done, keep going.

Going out shopping with my partner today, finally get to go out of the house. Even though I stated I wanted to go for walks I haven't been walking. I end up falling asleep or its too hot.

I accidentally slept between 4pm - 8pm which means I summed up around 11hours sleep in total.

Super worried, only got 5 hours sleep. Am I starting to go through another manic episode? I really don't want this. I'm scared.

Hi Kathryn, try not to worry about one poor nights sleep. Good luck with exercise tomorrow. If you feel high or restless maybe try some mindfulness exercises. Being recently diagnosed may be a little daunting, but with time you will get better at...

Knowing what to do and when, one or two nights bad sleep is ok and could be down to a lot of things, anxiety being one of them. Try not to jump to conclusions, and challenge any negative thoughts

Thankyou Kristian, I ended up watching/listening to some YouTube videos to relax me and I ended up napping 😅 I hope to go for a nice walk this afternoon as it'll be a lot cooler.

I was recently diagnosed with Bipolar type 1 on the 4th January I was also shocked how I weigh 95kg I was thinking how a mood diary could help me - so I made one #firstpost

Welcome! I lost 30kg in 2018. My tips are high fibre (wholemeal carbs/lots of vegetables) low sugar: 75g daily total max, 25g daily total refined max...and CouchTo5k. If I can do it, you can!

Rosalie G

Thanks John! This is really helpful 🥰

John T

That should read: 75g daily total max (includes fructose/lactose/natural sugars) which includes 25g daily refined max (white/brown/honey). Get reading the nutritional information section on all packets! Sweetners are good if you have a sweet tooth!

I've been looking into purchasing lite and easy, which is a food ordering system for weight loss. They have healthy meals and all the right nutrition!

John T

Personally I'd stick to real foods and the normal way you usually shop. It'll probably be a lot more expensive and less varied if you follow a prescribed system. It's up to you, though.

John T

Exercise was my motivation. Seems the wrong way round, but it gave me the will power to stick to the diet. CouchTo5k is great, highly recommend.

Last tip

Have 12 hours a day where you don't eat anything. Eg. Between 8pm and 8am. This helps with burning fat.

Thankyou for your help~ Im definitely doing to try the couch to 5 k, the 12 hour rule seems really achievable too since I sleep so much

John T

Try to stick to couch to 5k. It'll get you outside 3 times a week. Don't feel bad if you have to repeat a week to build fitness. But I did it at 16 stone+. It gets what you need in your legs and pushes you harder when you are able.
