Dear all followers (just two then)
My second year of university is getting ever closer, which means the start of Project ‘eat clean train dirty’ is creeping up on me.
The summer has been awesome, had an amazing holiday (get to that in a minute) worked like crazy trying to earn some money, and just chilled the fuck out for a couple of months. Its what I needed after a hectic first year.
However this means I have let my self go, ALOT.
I went to portugal on the 1st of july for 10 days, amazing holiday beautiful weather etc etc. Being the vein self conscious idiot that i am, i decide to spend the 4 weeks before had getting really fit and lean so that i didn’t look like a slob around the pool and that i looked ok in any potential holiday profile pictures.
This plan went so well, I got down to just under 87 kg and for me thats a good weight, not skinny at all, not ripped, but toned and defined. In a nutshell i did this by doing varied high and low cardio workouts 6 days a week, and eating 6 smaller nutritious meals a day. So when i got to portugal I was well and truly chuffed. Then the beer found me.
Long story story short, in 2 weeks i put on a good 5 kilos in beer and bad food, and when I came home i shot up to a lazy 97 kg’s. Which brings us to the present.
I am not going to start my training until the day i move back to uni on the first of September. Till then I intend to carry on eating how I am and do little to no exercise. I will be spending most of my time working late shifts, and in the day doing various other bits. I will be devoting some time to putting together meal plans, exercise routines that should start to feature on this blog, if anyone will read it.
So I’ll say chow for now, next time i write to you I will have moved in, bought some decent food, set up my new room, and started to put the miles in to getting rid of my petite belly.
After hearing about the death of someone you know that is your age you realise how short life really is. We can all moan about lads or girls or people that fuck us off, but then you have to realise to look at all of the positives that we all have in our lives. I’m not trying to preach here but really we all have to appreciate what we have before it’s too late.
Just to let you all know.
I am no fitness professional. I am not a personal trainer. I have no formal qualifications. All techniques opinions ideas, etc, I share and use I have collected over my short time in sport. I do not wish to preach or profess what little knowledge I have. If you do use my advice or techniques it is at your own risk, and is only a guide.
Written by an amateur to amateurs. Thats the whole idea. No air brushed mens health cover model 6 week instant 6 pack bull shit. Just trial and error, basic, see what happens, jump in at the deep end stuff.
You should always see a doctor or GP before commencing at training regime.
Firstly I offer my apologies, If you think this is a how-to guide, you will be some what disappointed. At the moment at least.
So the whole idea for this blog is to share some light and follow my relatively unexciting journey, as i attempt to regain the level of fitness i had before i started university. But there is a lot of work to do between now and then.
So this is how it’s going to work.
- I am going to set my self a series of fitness related goals i want to achieve in a given time period, and will work towards them.
- Along the way i will update the blog on my progress (or inevitably my lack of progress), my training regime, techniques, methods work out, Diet ( Unfortunately this is an important aspect) tips, cheats, amusing anecdotes, advice ( If I’m feeling particularly wise) and general university survival help. I know, I am that kind.
- I will update this blog as often as I can, as another purpose of the blog is to keep me motivated. However it will not be hourly, or even daily, I will blog sporadically, when ever I feel like I’ve got something useful to share, or to update you with.
So it begins, it don’t know how this all works, but I’m sure ill work it out along the way.
