bet you were worried about me cos it’s been
so quiet here last few days on the doses of Tough Love
Well, I’m on me jollies in my home from home
the beautiful motherland that is Italia.
As it’s ma holidays I’ve had a total media blackout for the last 6 days
email, phone, whats app, facebook, twitter
it’s been a total shut down.
(it also helps that I’m in the Appenini mountains
and connection speed is alla 1991)
For me to truly immerse myself in my holiday I have to cut ties
completely with the world I’m taking a break from.
The reason I do this is that I carry a burden, I’m cursed…
My problem is I’m either all in,
balls to the wall committed…
I’m all out,
I guess you could say it’s a blessing and a curse.
If you look at it from the point of view of daily work tasks
then this is definitely a blessing as I’m all holiday and no work
so I completely relax…
But the caveat and the curse is that this means I’m totally
breaking all the rules when it comes to looking after myself,
my body composition and training in the gym.
For the last 6 days I’ve paid no thought to anything else
but holiday and feeding the monster
I’ve been all out eating for the sake of eating,
drinking for the sake of drinking
and it’s been fun but it has it’s own consequences…
Everything is a bit softer, the shapes and muscles
you can see when you first arrive start to lose their clarity…
There’s only so much of this you can take
before your body goes into full shut down
and the rolling stone starts to build in size
Made me think of how I used to be,
I used to live like this every single day…
At University I didn’t have a care in the world
for my health or my strength.
My choice of evening meal was Chinese, fish and chips
or chicken kebab from Headingley Fisheries
(they used to give me free food cos I returned their
huge outdoor sign in the back of my Rover. Guess I forgot to tell them
I’d found the sign in the front garden of our student house,
likelihood is we stole it but no-one could remember so it was fair game)
So, after the 6 days of fun and overindulgence
the line has been drawn!
I woke this morning to 2 litres of water alkalised with Sodium Bicarbonate
30 minutes mobility circuit followed by 10 sets of explosive wall jumps
Nothing over complicated or too strenuous but a good session nevertheless…
I feel amazing I can have some decent to good food choices and a little bit of what i like
safe in the knowledge I’ve put some ground work in to use the food for good…
I’ve broken media blackout to let you know
that it might be your turn to draw the line
6 days might represent 6 months to you
or 6 years???
The point is you’ve been living without boundaries for too long
Remember the important thing is not what has gone,
But what is to come!
I’m asking thee hombre… When will you draw the line???
We would love to give you the stick but you have to be willing to draw it…
The doors on the Projects will close in 5 days and along with it your opportunity…
