Day 1 - new beginnings

After a very mad and crazy few months I have decided to come back to what I love! ’ body for life ‘

My operation left me unable to train and while I tried to train just after it left me in agony and having to return back to the doctors ! I can still hear her words in my head…

" you have just got to be lazy for the next 6 weeks"

And here I am.. Back

I had to weight myself this morning..

99.7 kgs - it’s not 103 as before, but it’s still not great! So theres some motivation for me!

And that’s it! It’s just me - this blog - my home gym and a great book (BFL)

Let’s get on with it!

Day 30

Today is not about me it’s about my boss Steve Jobs… Rest in peace.

You make my working day a joy.
I have a dream job and in 4 years I have never once ‘had a bad day’

I hate the thought of never getting the chance to meet you as one day I always thought I REALLY would.

We at Apple carry your torch now and forever

Thank you x

Day 29

Hello! I jumped straight back into it last night with an upperbody workout!

I had forgotten what was involved so had to take my bible (body for life book) into the garage with me!

I found most of the exercises easy and struggled only with my bicep one! Damn! I need to work harder!!!

I wasn’t sure if I would ‘restart’ may day counter back to ‘day 1’ as it feels like a lifetime away from my workouts!
But I figure that I’m now wearing 34 jeans and not 36” waist jeans and I do feel ‘different’ and believe I should (& you) should always move forward!!

Lots of hard work ahead, keep taking the stairs and drinking the water..

It’s good to be back x


Hello! It’s been a long two weeks!

We last spoke just before I headed off to the U.S (17th sep) it’s now October 3rd! What’s been going on?

The moment I landed in San Francisco I fell ill. Probably due to being so run down, the flight was delayed by 5hrs and let’s not talk about the 11hour flight time. I was awake for 23hrs on the first day :(

On my return (feeling alittle better) I came home to a pre planned operation which has taken me off my feet for the past 6 days!

I’m still in pain when I walk now!

The good news!

I’m now 97.5kgs Down from my initial 103.5kg starting weight

I now fit into 34” jeans down from my 36” !!!

What now?

I am going to try some upperbody stuff tonight but I’m unsure when I’m fit to ‘run’

I’ll keep you posted!

I’m back

Let’s talk tomorrow?

I’m on a train traveling to London - then onto San francisco - im not sure at which point today I’m going to be doing a workout ? My flight is 11 hours! Ekk!

I’m going to keep posting here thou!

See you on the other side of the lake!

Day 27 - Weigh day

Lost 1.1kg (2.43lbs) this week.

Week 4 complete.

That’s 5.7kgs (12.5 lbs) in total so far!

So I was wrong? I’m still dropping it!

Today is my free day and I’m going out with my family tonight as it’s my sons 18th tomorrow! It’s a really nice Indian restaurant. Otherwise I’m being ’ good’ today!

My wife Is being quite vocal now about how I used to look.. This keeps me positive and pushes me forward.

I tried on some old tee’s last night and they (nearly) all fit, which again is awesome.. So I’m going in the right direction.

Day 26

LBWO last night, I really find this a chore now! It’s not as much fun as UBWO at all!! So after I finished I did a few reps on my shoulders and biceps and triceps!!! Then I felt better!!

Legs really hurt today! Damn

Tomorrow is weigh in day, I’m starting to wonder if this will be the end of my big weight loss? I’m feeling ‘chunky’ :)

And of course Saturday is 24 hours of traveling as I head off to the U.S!

Need to keep strong while I’m away! Lots of temptation.

Keep safe x
