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
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.
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 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.
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.
It's the halfway point! I'm about 6 weeks into my challenge...so far so good! There's nothing I'm doing that I don't feel I can't continue long term - yes I've cut out (although not completely) sugary foods, but it's not like I had a daily bar of chocolate anyway? Although I could be swayed by … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 6 Half Way!
Week 4 done and dusted. A good week for training and nutrition. Monday is my rest day from cardio so I got a good strength session completed between staff training in Derby and working. At the start of Week 1 of my challenge, Mark introduced me to back squats. I have trouble with progressing many … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 4 Snacks and Lattes
I'm now at the end of the 3rd week of my challenge. Thanks to all of you who are asking how I'm getting on. It's prompting some good discussions, mainly around food! On Monday I was asked if I'm hungry all the time. That's a big fat NO! I'm not on a calorie restricting diet. … Continue reading More Than An End Goal – Week 3
Online coaching has really boomed in the last few years and I do offer both in-house and online coaching myself. With the likes of Skype, Zoom, sharing files online, data sharing and daily communication being so easy, coaching clients is much more manageable and productive. Coaching can work for everyone from a plan based around … Continue reading Coaching is about balance.
