I started my 12 Week Challenge on Monday 14th January. It ended on Sunday 7th April. It's been a journey! Lots of ups and downs and much learning along the way. I'm was 'up North' for the final weekend which was a good opportunity for some down time and to review the last 12 weeks... … Continue reading More Than An End Goal Week 12 – What next?
My week didn't start well! On Monday it took me 2.5hrs to get to Darley Abbey. I was there 45mins before heading back to work 🤨. Before the evening sessions started, I managed to fit in a 45min gym session - better than doing nothing! I completed 4 sets of lat pull down & incline … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 8 Time Out.
I love this SxxT. Week #4 and I no longer need to keep a food diary, I know, how cool is that?! And here is the WHY: I know what meals I am having and when, I know the quantities per meal so as long as I stay on the plan I don't need to … Continue reading Week #4
Week #3 is easy to review and show how building routine and habits brings a much easier way of life. 3 weeks ago I shook my diet on it's head, was it a good time to do this? No but to be honest, Week #2 or #3 was not ideal either. I want to … Continue reading Week #3
So here goes, it's Week #2. 1% second, minute, hour, mile, watt, rpm, bpm, kg, body fat, ascent, decent, rep, set, cm, time, distance, carbs, protein, fat, water, energy, pace.

TO CHANGE WE MUST CHALLENGE: So what's it all about? Firstly it's easy to be complacent, blame everything around us but never look closer to home. It's easy to wish to achieve or hope it will just happen. It's easy to talk about it but never do it. I am not going to fluff this … Continue reading Time For Change – Mark’s 12 week journey.
Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you.
Last week was challenging in terms of daily life, training and nutrition. Which is reflected in my food diary! Even with forward planning, my calorie intake was too low on certain days. This saw a slight weight loss - nothing major but I could tell I was back to 48.5-49kg. Maintaining a certain body weight … Continue reading More Than An End Goal Week 10 – On catch up.
Another week done - time fly's when you're having fun! I was asked this week again, what I am training for? Nothing! My goal is to maintain what I'm putting into practice over this 12 weeks - to keep on keeping on. Which is: consistent and regular training, enjoying my training, building some strength and … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 9 Keep on keeping on.
My weeks at the moment start with an early Monday morning trip to Darley Abbey, Derby - leaving the studio at 6.30am for a 2hr 'drive' - generally a slow crawl in traffic. Thankfully the lighter mornings are on their way and I'm now able to enjoy the sunrise for part of my journey rather … Continue reading More Than An End Goal: Week 7 Do what works for you.
