Now this is difficult for me to admit but i feel like i need to come clean…
See im a personal trainer & the picture most people have of me (those that don’t know me too well) is that i am some kind of exercising machine that is programmed to go around eating raw broccoli all day but nothing could be further from the truth.
especially at the moment
be honest & when you think of me or any other personal trainers or fitness / fat loss experts you know you probably think its ok for them its easy,
you probably think I stay at home doing burpee’s & eating vegetables all day
The thing is, as a personal trainer & someone who is supposed to set an example & be “perfect” all the time you sometimes feel like you need to put on a bit of a front & under pressure to be “perfect” especially when I’m out & I get the comments like “should you be eating that” & “i thought you were supposed to be a personal trainer”
its true though
sometimes i can’t be bothered to exercise & id rather sit down & put my feet up
sometimes i can’t be bothered to cook & id rather order something in
sometimes i just feel like pigging out
I know this will probably surprise you but I’m no different to most of you when it comes to being healthy, i know exactly what I’m doing & what i need to be doing & while most of the time I’m pretty good with things i can very easy get lost with everything & lose my way from time to time.
Like right now
Heres my excuse(s)
See firstly i was in a car crash on the motorway, i was very lucky & lived to tell the tale but i didn’t feel up to exercising the following week, then 2 weeks later i was rushed to hospital with an umbilical hernia problem & had my stomach cut open to repair it so was unable to exercise even if i wanted too
this was about 2-3 months ago now & I’m fine to exercise but iv put it off & put it off & built it up in my head so much that iv put myself off the idea.
plus I’m living a bit upside down at the moment while were decorating our new place so my head isn’t where it usually is
thankfully my girlfriends pretty handy in the kitchen & not letting things go completely to pot
Also during this time because i was unable to exercise iv also let my diet slide from what i usually do too & allowed some bad habits to creep in
I just wanted to get this off my chest & let you know that i know what its like sometimes to lose your mojo & to fall off the wagon so to speak
the trick is to not stay off the wagon for too long & realise when your heading in the wrong direction & do something about it.
Also i have my 10 “fat loss” commandments (habits) & so long as i don’t veer too far from them then I won’t pack on too many pounds but i do need to watch it, especially at the moment.
ill share them with you soon 🙂
Anyway, theres nothing like booking a holiday to kick you into action so i have about 8 weeks to do something about it because you can’t beat the feeling of feeling fit, energised & confident in your own skin which i don’t at the moment.
I hope this resonates you anyway & id love to know what gets you kick started when you fall off the wagon
