WEEK THREE HAS passed and yet again another astonishing 11 pounds have been taken off the body. I am absolutely over the moon with the results I am getting from Rahan Fitness and I can really start to see the results.
My fitness levels are increasing day by day, which is a massive plus and the inches are starting to go off my body.
I decided to do a bit of spring cleaning today in the house and managed to stumble on the very first t-shirt I wore on RTÉ’s Operation Transformation and it’s only now that I can actually see the results.
People always say to me, look what you have achieved and look at how much weight you have lost, but I normally just nod and thank them and never take much notice of it. But today really opened my eyes to what I have achieved and what I can do to achieve my goals.
It’s been a busy week for me as I have been doing a lot of motivational talks around the country and it’s always good to hear other people’s stories as well as my own.
I particularly had the pleasure of meeting Minister James Reilly the other night at one of my talks. Some people say it’s difficult to have a working life and keep up your fitness.
For me, I have to make sure I can get to the gym each morning and night to make sure I’m keeping up my own personal standard.
I have my own business at the moment doing fuel and yes, it is very physical at times, but it’s burning the calories all the same.
It’s a busy weekend ahead for me as I am heading to England, but exercise and clean eating cannot stop just because it’s a holiday. That running gear and shoes are packed into the bag to keep the body ticking over.
My diet has also been incredibly good so the first stop will be to a local supermarket to make sure I have everything I need and I suppose a change of scenery is always good for the head.
You know, you think it’s bad with weight problems, but one of my good friend’s mam was diagnosed with breast cancer before Christmas. She is an absolute gem. Her family was very worried about her, but she didn’t let this affect her for some reason and stayed strong and active through the whole lot.
It’s not two months that have passed since her diagnosis and we have our own local Operation Transformation walk in our local town of Clara every Monday and Wednesday and she, without doubt, never misses it.
That’s determination and that’s what I call willpower. She could have laid down and tried to make sure that everyone felt sorry for her, but no, she took the bull by the horns and just drove on. A person like this makes me drive on to know if they can do it I can do it.
