I would like to say a huge Thank You to James. My training is coming to an end soon, James has given me the knowledge and confidence to train in the gym. I am not from here and find it hard to train on my own at the gym. If anyone attends Ystrad gym and wants to meet please message me.
I would still like to attend James’s workout sessions at J2 gym if possible. 🙂
Been with James for 6 weeks, fantastic trainer. James has given me amazing confidence to the point I have sent him pictures of my progression! Being with James allows me to maintain my lifestyle how I want to and gives me an attitude where I can believe in myself. I highly recommend James to anyone, any shape or size.

“I cant look at myself in the mirror..”

Or maybe its not taking pictures with family members.

It can be a tough subject, especially if you have a family that you want to make memories with.

Does it come down to not being comfortable in your own skin?

Or is it the thought of being judged by other people?

Looks and/or abilities maybe.

It can be different for everyone but it seems to be a common problem that people deal with every day.

But life’s hard enough without having to worry about that.

So what would make it easier for you?

Maybe its learning to become more confident.

Maybe its pushing yourself out of your comfort zone in different situation so you can see that people really don’t care much about things that aren’t focused around them.

Maybe it would help to get stronger, and start learning about your own body as well as the gym.

Get comfortable and get chatting to people with similar goals.

There are solutions to making you feel more confident looking in the mirror.

To get you back to taking pictures with your family, and feeling happy about them!

Its just a matter of finding out what your reason for unhappiness is, and what’s going to work for you.

BUT,

No one can take the plunge for you, you have to be ready to make that change.

And if you decide that’s what you want to do.

Be happier.

More confident.

Have the belief you can change your life for the better..

Then maybe its time to finally reach out!

My inbox is always open.

And FYI.. no picture you ever take will be as bad as this one of me, so rest easy with that fact and get the selfie stick out!

Struggling to eat well at work?

Maybe you have to pick up a meal deal when you’re out.

Maybe you don’t get chance to take a break.

There are a lot of reasons why you might struggle when on shift, but the solutions just take a little bit of thinking.

If you buy food from she shop everyday, then where do you usually go?

Sit down and have a think of the options.

Can you get a main with plenty of protein, a snack consisting of fruit, and a drink that has lower calories and sugar?

Theres your meal deal combination.

What if you usually take food into work though?

Are there better steps you could have in place so you can make sure you have well rounded meals and you don’t sniff out the takeaway menu when everyone else is?

Dont get me wrong, now and again, knock yourself out..

But for most of the week we should be looking at getting well rounded meals in on our breaks.

This means either prepping before our shifts, or making sure we have meals ready and easily accessible to go.

You could prep a whole weeks worth of works food and freeze it just to take out the night before you go in.

You could make sure you have some calorie controlled meals in the fridge ready to throw straight in your bag.

A reusable water bottle, and some fruit or yogurts in your weekly shop will make things quick and easy to just throw in.

Make things easy and simple, and you’ll be more likely to stick to it.

You do not have to track your calories to lose weight, but it might be a good idea.

Think of it as a tool, one that we can use to measure our intake.

A bit like if we decided to bake a cake.

Sure we have all of the ingredients and can throw them all together and hope for the best.

But we’d be pi***ng in the wind and trying not to get it on our shoes.

We’d probably get a soggy bottom..

Wouldn’t it be a better idea to measure out a good flour to sugar ratio?

Would we get a better result if we tracked how much we were actually putting in instead of guessing?

Following the recipe to get the best results..

Same with calories.

Sure we can count them up in our head.

Make sure we’re eating more fruit and veg.

Having protein in every meal.

But when weight loss is the goal, wouldn’t it make sense to track how much we’re actually putting in?

Even if its just to see how many calories are in our regular meals and snacks so we get some sort of idea?

We track things every day.

Bank balance.

Hours worked.

Units drunk.

So why the resistance against calories?

“But calorie counting isn’t sustainable”

Its not supposed to be sustainable, its supposed to be a tool we can use in a dieting phase, nothing more.

Stop trying to be different and see it for what it is.

Thats like saying “Antibiotics aren’t sustainable”..

Well enjoy that rash..

Calorie counting is just another tool we can use on your journey, just see it for what it is and not something that’s going to ruin your life.
