To be honest I’m disappointed with myself.
Yesterday I started this mission to get a six pack. Tomorrow I fly to Greece and I’m not ready.
I guess the lesson is ‘Don’t set unrealistic goals’
But my mission is serious and I fully intend to be ready next time. Unless I slip another holiday in within the next couple of months then I’ll settle for being better than I am now.
And that’s what it’s all about – PROGRESS
The destination stays the same the aim is on target I may miss every now and again but I will get there. I will succeed.
This holiday will be a wake up call. It is the first one abroad with my new girlfriend so I aim to use it as motivation. My girlfriend is a lot younger than me so I need to get in shape, be healthy and fit because I want to be with her for the rest of my life.
I don’t want her to slow down because of me. Or miss out because I’m unfit and can’t keep up.
I want to carry her up the mountain and have enough energy to hold her tight and never let her go.
So this holiday I will check out the guys on the beach. Not out of jealousy but out of curiosity.
What are they eating?
How are they training?
How often do they train?
These are the things I need to work out. I need to set myself a training goal and an eating goal.
If I get my plan right and stick to it then I will get what I want.
So tomorrow when on the plane, I’ll think about that and post what I will be doing when I’m away and when I’m back.
Whilst I’m away I’ll eat well and make my mission to come back a bit lighter.
Ill excercise mainly in the pool and long walks. I don’t intend to train as such. Just be active.
I was going to do a last minute spin class tonight but it’s sunny in Felixstowe UK and this is my view so a brisk walk will do to get the heat rate up and catch some rays.
Then home to pack.
Being over 40 isn’t going to stop me getting Abs
I will have the body of my former twenty year old self and I will improve.
And if you took the time to read this and your on the same mission as me I wish you well.
