As you can see from the image, I am just over 11 weeks until I head of to Ibiza for my stag do. What better reason is there to fully commit to a transformation challenge and try to finally achieve that six pack that i have been wishing for as far back as i can remember?
This of course coupled with the fact that I most certainly dont want to look fat for my wedding pics has further fueled my determination to secure this goal. If you have looked at my previous posts, this is not the first time i have looked to do this. I have tried a large number of times over recent years to the point where i feel like i am on some kind of constant diet. Whether i have been training for the boxing or taking part in the No More Bolics challenge I have always given it my best for periods of time only to fall short of what i expected. This isn’t the programs fault of course nor is it any trainer i have used, it has always been down to me and my lack of consistency. I am a sucker for a piece of chocolate, a pastry or some kind of general naughtiness. I have blogged about “moderation” but have also been guilty of letting a treat meal turn into a treat day and then into a treat weekend or at worst, a treat week. NOT ANY MORE!
Well, whats changed? I can hear you say…. It all came to a head recently when I was given a copy of the official fight pictures for my recent charity bout. The best way to describe my reaction was simply, SHOCK! I was convinced i looked better than what was put before me. I know I wasnt the leanest i had been in the past but my god, i didn’t expect that.
Here is an example of what i mean. I know its a good action shot but look at the size of my gut! its close to hanging over the shorts….. this was by no means the worst one either!
Anyway, I cannot, and will not be happy having my photos taken either on my stag, at the wedding or on the honeymoon looking like this! Something has therefore got to change.
From this moment on, at the time of publishing this post, i will be making more of an effort, sticking more to plan and working harder on myself then i ever had done before.
I will be embarking on a journey of transformation and this time its for real!
I am going to set out my goals publicly and really push to make sure I for once, smash them out the park! No more excuses, no more signs of weakness and no more treats!
I would welcome your support, tips and advice – god knows I will need it!
Thanks for reading and wish me luck!
