This week started as the last one ended with one focus, that was on my food and my training, the first 2-3 weeks are always the hardest and that never changes, once you get over the first few weeks you start to see that change and it starts to get easier to stick to the routine that you are in, you have fully detoxed from the shitty food you have been eating for weeks the 2/3 litres of water I am drinking a day has begun to flush me out and I am feeling much better and again this is only after a full 7 days.
As I said before I am training just 3 days a week with Ronan but I am playing hurling and I am training with the club also 3 days a week with the last 2/3 weeks so that is obviously a big help to me as well. The training with Ronan has gone well throughout this week, but make no mistake it is tough, no shortcuts until you get it done and that is what you get when you sign up with Victory, you will be pushed to your limits but I do believe that it isn’t until you push yourself to your limits that you will begin to see change.
I would be lying that when I weighed in on Saturday I was very disappointed, I was down to 90.2 Kg but I really wanted to get under the 90Kg this week and was very disappointed not to have hit that target, but Ronan has reassured me not to worry, I do have 14 weeks left so maybe I am being hard on myself, I still lost over 1Kg and like Ronan said if I did that every week for the next 13/14 weeks I would be well under 80Kg, so I do see his point.
I am going to keep the head up and not worry about the weight too much for now once is keeps moving in the right direction I am happy, but there will always be ups and downs on a journey but no good complaining about it, as Ronan always says “Trust the process”, he hasn’t failed me in the past so I don’t see reason to doubt him now.
The game went well felt fit, so much so that I felt I could have played another hour, but its back to the gym, onto the next step, the weight is coming down nicely and time to start shaping it, time to hit the iron !!!
I cannot wait to up the weights and bring this body into shape coming into the Christmas period.
After seeing my weight on Thursday, instead of doing exactly what Ronan told me to do which was not to worry, because the weight is only a number, he said “your body is changing so there is not need to worry, keep in contact with me throughout the day and you will be fine” what did I do in my infinite wisdom, I shut off, from Ronan and anything gym related, I was upset, I wasn’t happy with myself and I was trying to find something to blame instead of looking at the real problem which was and is myself only and my eating habits which have to stop, that night in the space of 15 minutes, I had a bag of popcorn, 2 bags of Doritos with melted cheese and 3 cans of Fanta, now even when I’m looking at that I am thinking to myself “what the fuck is wrong with you”.
