About Me: My Journey – Part Two
Welcome back! Let’s continue with the rest of the story of my personal journey back to health and fitness.
To briefly recap – I’ve been pretty fit throughout most of my life, and I it was mu full time job for many years.
My interest in nutrition and strength training though, have really only developed in the last ten years.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS COMMIT TO ONE SIMPLE NEW DAILY HABIT.
I had a pretty nomadic lifestyle from the mid 1990’s until 2009.
I lived in a few different places in Australia, and then Jayson and I lived and worked in the UK for several years.
It wasn’t until we settled in my home town of Geelong in 2011 that I made an effort to improve my eating habits and get fit again.
I said before that it was a great learning experience because I don’t think that I would be where I am today without the first hand experience of losing my own fitness, gaining weight and being unhappy with my body and my health.
In just a few years I went from looking and feeling fantastic everyday to feeling tired and drained of energy, being disgusted with my flabby arms and thighs and wearing clothes to hide my body shape.
“Change is really hard, it does take effort, but wouldn’t it be worse to do nothing?”
Now let me tell you something else – I fully understand the feelings of self loathing and unhappiness. I remember feeling that way all too clearly.
But there is a very simple truth in one of my favourite motivational sayings “you can’t expect anything to change unless you’re willing to do something different.”
And if you’re in that place right now, I know that it can feel impossible to take the first step and begin making changes, but do you know what would be worse?
To continue feeling sad, tired, angry, depressed and hating your body. Change is really hard, it does take effort, but wouldn’t it be worse to do nothing?
Obviously I am very happy with where I’m at now. I’m not as fit as I used to be and that’s okay because I’m at a different point in my life now; I’m a big believer in ‘never say never’ but for now I’m finished with competing in triathlons and half marathons. I run two to three times per week and I’m continuing to build my strength in my PT sessions at at the gym. I am very happy with my diet and I feel very fortunate to be in a position to be able to help others on their health and fitness journeys. If you think that I can be of any help to you, then please get in touch so that we can have a chat – don’t stay in a place that you don’t want to be.
