Well here we are #transformationtuesday and I’ve just hit the big 4 0!
I made a promise that I wanted to be in the best shape of my life when I hit 40. What I didn’t realise is how out of shape I was. Running around with my 6 year old is easier, taking a walk with my wife and family is easier...I didn’t realize they got hard.
What has changed is my outlook on food and exercise. Now let me tell you I never say no to a beer and I will go out every weekend at the moment to have a few pints, kick a ball around with my son and enjoy this wonderful summer we have had.
I don’t have a six pack and that’s what I promised myself but I soon realised that a six pack was not as important as living my life, seeing my friends, spending time with my family, eating a bloody pizza or curry without making excuses so actually in a nutshell, being happy.
Man I’m happy with how I look here but I’ve also learned that I can relax and let go but get back to this without starving myself. Do not be scared of the weight going up and down, real life happens.
Ultimately I had to listen to someone who knows more than me and Christ this guy @coach_james_smith is half my age and now turns out to be one of my best friends. He had educated me, groaned at me, taught me to turn up to a session with a hangover on more than one occasion, but ultimately knew my goal and how to get me to where I am, NOT absolutely shredded how I thought I wanted to be, because I don’t, but I didn’t know that.
I’m off on holiday to drink lots, eat lots, put weight on and not care, because that’s what holidays are for.
Finally I’m not bloody training to compete @coach_james_smith no way 😳😬
