Day 10

We are into wednesday already, and im getting used to world of no sleep again! Despite that, and having the week off working, i’m still trying to get a workout in here and there.

How’s your checklist doing?

Drunk enough water?

Breakfast today?

Snacked in mid-morning and mid-afternoon and healthily?

Eaten a good healthy lunch, but not stuffed yourself so much that you’re tired all afternoon?

What’s on the evening menu? Enough veggies going in and are you consuming enough protein with most meals? It can have a real effect on burning more calories.

What’s your workout plan today? Is it inside or are you hitting some fresh air workouts? Guaranteed to make you feel a lot better!

Have you had any moments of doubt today? Is your self-belief still high or is there someone negative looking to throw you off course? If they are trying to do this, then they haven’t your best interests at heart.

Is the programme becoming more positive for you, and is it a bumpy road due to external factors outside your control?

Are you committed to the programme still, or are you looking for the exit door by making the “same old excuses”?

Are you making some improvements to your workoiuts? By now, your numbers on each exercise should be going up.

Is fresh and more natural food easier to stomach? If it isn’t stick with it and you won’t go back to fatty/sugary foods…ever!

Are you feeling overall better, both physically and mentally? If you have applied yourself, then chances are the answer is very much YES!!

Whatever you have achieved so far, things will only get better so let’s keep building on these strong foundations you have set!


Day 9

How many of you know people who get worked up or even throw a tantrum because they can’t have certain foods? I say they “can’t” have certain foods but isn’t it their choice to change their lifestyle in the first place, they committed themselves to a better life, and like a little child, once they findĀ out they can’t have their “favourite” sugary and fatty foods, the worst kind of tantrums are thrown and i have seen them first hand!

If you are in this group, does it really make sense to put yourself through this process? Should you really be on this programme if you are not really committed to feeling your best, getting more energy in your life, changing things once and for all, the bottom line is do you want to change or not and that’s the challenge i’m putting to you?!!!!!!!!

The process you may be going through is that now you have given up junk for now, are you jealous of other people eating chocolate in front of you? Do you really think that their lifestyle is somehow “exciting”? I think not! Chances are that people are jealous of your lifestyle now, the fact that you’re making the right choices and your life is charging on in a very positive manner at a rate of knots!

So in summing up, the most destructive thing you can do right now is to keep COMPLAINING about the fact you can’t have your junk, your alcohol in excess, that box of chocolates!! Think of it another way, be thankful that you are leaving that old lifestyle behind, yes you REALLY ARE DOING IT!! Appreciate your healthier lifestyle and better quality of life, and you are adjutsting to it steadily, the old days are gone, and good riddance to them!

Your body is not fighting this change at all, it’s your mind, so quit the crying like a baby and throwing the toys out of the pram, focus on the opportunities you now have in your life, now and in the future, and let’s have a great day 9 and get this plan firmly back on track!!


Day 8-get with the programme WEEK 2!

Well day 7 ended pretty well for me. The birth of my baby daughter at 11 o clock was a momentus occasion and she came in at 7″15 so a good weight. Both mother and baby are well, but no definiteĀ names yet! Will let you know and that’s why i’ve been quiet on here today!

A special thank you to midwife Becky who was outstanding, she has recently given up smoking, and i have invited her to get with the programme, up to her and hope she makes the right choice, i’m sure she will do well!

Glad to see most of you are doing well over the first 7 days, most of you say that you haven’t felt so good for a long, long time. For many of you, its been a struggle this week, but you have come through it. Some of you have had good days, some bad, but all of you have realised it’s not about being perfect, its about doing your best with the resources you have.

Those “resources” are pretty powerful as it happens, it’s just that most of you don’t use them enough. I am fortunate to have had a new baby come into the world tonight, and hopefully she makes the right choices most of the time, like i hope her brother does.

How many of you have made choices that you consider “bad”? Well i’ve got news for you, its a pretty big club you’re in and most if not all of us have made choices we are no longer proud of. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and it’s time to realise that it’s not the cards you were dealt, it’s how you play those cards. The past does not equal the future, this means just because something has happened in the past, it doesn’t mean it has to affect your future, so that you never try anything again!

Would i be on here on 0.55am on day 8 after i just got home hospital if i didn’t care and want you all to improve? Before you ask, the hospital wouldn’t let me stay and i go back tomorrow. This is blog that asks for no money, all it asks for all of you to do your best and change your life for the better through eating well, exercising as little more and with more purpose, and allowing this process to really allow the self-belief in your life that has been missing to sky-rocket!! It can really be done and with most of you, the early signs are good!

So you all have the same choices going forward, no matter what has gone on before. Is there any one of you that can’t make their families proud of the physical improvements you are making, and and are about to make? Is there any of you that really can’t do 3 inside workouts this week, and 2-3 outside workouts to make youself so much better inside and out by next sunday? Is there any of you that can’t make a healthy shopping list up and finally get to the supermarket and really commit to eating fresh and healthy foods for the remaining 11 weeks? Or are any of you going to give up on yourself and not reach that potential you always knew existed deep inside of you?

Those who commit right now to another good week will be ten steps forward, those who are dubious about it, need to try it and see if it really works? I stake my reputation on here EVERY DAY to say it does, and i will debate these principles with anyone who cares to ask why this way? It is based on science and tried and tested principles, be consistent, use the resources on the site, and communicate with the valued members on here, IT ALL HELPS!

We are here, week 8, let’s do it!!!!!!!
