This beautiful lady is my major motivating factor. Supportive, encouraging and prepared to take risks with me. The perfect formula for success
You can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
I have a young protege working with me in my training business and we were talking this morning about how to pursuade people to get fit and reclaim their lives. Now, this kid trains hard eats well and looks great. Everybody tells him so but when he says.."you can too, come to the gym and we'll show you how", they all complain about how it'll cut into their social time.
It seems that the common denominator is - landing with a great big THUD at...rock bottom.
At some stage you will and when that happens getting in shape is simple. Not easy but simple.
It happened to me and all I can say is that, thanks to Adam I found my way back and am well on my way to the best shape of my life.
For those out there who are struggling, keep on searching for that one thing that will motivate you and "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear." The rest will fall into place
It's not how many times you are knocked down, it's the getting up that makes you a hero.
My relationship has also helped me to keep on getting up. All my failed attempts were followed by..." I believe in you, I know you can do it." The question "Are you proud of me" followed by "I always have been." is the key.
Relationships are funny things. My girlfriend and I are very different. She, gregarious, regal, an absolute presence wherever she goes and I, an introvert, and a homebody...but the glue that binds us together is that our goals and dreams are identical and I believe that is the key. We are both risktakers who are committed to makng all our dreams come true.
If you combine someone who likes structure and the safety net of a salary together with with someone who is highly non risk averse but you are both party animals, you can see trouble coming a mile away.
Am back into the swing of training...am training four days a week with two cardio days....and have been eating very clean, and apart from a little soreness am feeling fabulous.
Watch out for my future plans. TOMORROW.
