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.

The world is full of mostly nice people.

I believe that, even when people say how much they prefer dogs to humans.

Take a look at what happened to the England squad…

All that hate, that was then squashed by all of the love that they received after.

Tenfold.

There will always be people in this world who will try to bring you down.

Make fun of you.

Try and get a reaction.

It happens in health and fitness as much as it does in other parts of the world.

People who think they don’t belong because of their body shape.

Or because they don’t fit into the social stereotype that pops into your head when you think about the gym.

But this world should be inclusive to everyone.

And for every one of those people who try to bring you down, I guarantee there’s 10 on the other side of the fence.

The ones who will lift you up.

Support you.

Show you that in a world of hate there are more people who want to see you succeed and smile.

Don’t put off that gym trip just because you feel like you don’t belong there.

It’s for everyone.

Like the pub đź‘€

The sun and hiding yourself away.

Are you worrying about what others will think about your outfit?

Thinking about it to the point where you decide to change?

Then please don’t.

Its 25 degrees and I can literally feel the sweat dripping down my back, down my arse cheek and to my foot.

TMI?

Who cares.

Its too warm to be worrying about other peoples opinions.

Think you look good?

Then you look good.

F**k what other people think.

People will judge you whatever you do.

You could be the nicest and most selfless person on the planet and people will still find something to complain and judge you about.

But f**k those people.

They’re so unhappy in their own skin the try to project that onto others.

Wear that summer dress.

Wear those shorts.

And don’t let other peoples opinions make you question yourself.

The only opinions you should be worried about are those who are close to you, and your own.

Everyone else is just fluff, so who cares.

Get ya legs out legends.

Fast vs slow results.

Everyone wants them fast.

But not everyone is willing to put in the amount of work required.

What would fast results mean?

Being more strict with food intake.

Not being able to eat or drink as much as usual.

More thought about your gym schedule.

Making sure we’re moving more.

You may get hangry.

More irritated.

Start seeing it as a chore more than a process.

But what if we chose a slower route?

It would mean not having to make so many sacrifices with your diet.

Being more lenient and able to eat a little more.

Enjoy those nights out.

Not having to hit such a hight step count.

Not having to go to the gym so much.

Having a beer and not beating yourself up.

Some people prefer to sprint first and then slow down.

Some people prefer to take the race at their own pace and enjoy the run.

Only you can decide that for yourself.

Come on Usain.

“I might workout Wednesday..”

No.

Stop giving yourself a pass.

Don’t give yourself chance to skip it.

If we start telling ourselves we may do something, or we may not, its a recipe for disaster.

Give yourself a set day.

And a set time.

I know this isn’t always possible to stick to.

But give yourself a good chance by looking at your week.

When will you have a spare bit of time that will probably be uninterrupted?

When are you usually free for half an hour?

Before or after work maybe.

What about in the evenings?

Once you find when your free time lies, then its easy to start scheduling in those workouts.

Or maybe its just a walk.

I don’t care, as long as you start doing what you say you’ll do.

Start moving more.

Leading to being happier.

Living longer.

Stopping making excuses.

Excuses don’t create results.

They kill them.

Go look at your diary.

Clean eating is not a thing.

Im sorry.

Being led to believe that we should only eat freshly grown food.

Straight from the ground.

If it comes from a freezer its bad.

Ready meals are the devil.

Chocolate and crisps are a no go.,

Don’t get me started with bread and pasta.

But this is not the case.

Yes we should be lowering our processed food intake.

We should be eating more plants.

But having ready meals now and again isn’t going to lower your life expectancy.

Food doesn’t instantly become bad for us if its prepared up front and frozen.

Sold as a meal.

Or has gluten in it.

It doesn’t make it any healthier for us just because its natural either.

Know what else I natural?

Kidney stones.

Go eat a few of them if your thinking like that.

Being held accountable for what happens in your week.

Does the thought of that scare you?

Or is it exciting?

If you feel scared then maybe you’re feeling like that because you want to change something but just aren’t ready to do it yet.

If it excites you then maybe you’re ready to make the plunge.

Being held accountable means you have to explain what’s gone well, and what’s gone t**s up.

Its the time where you find out if you’ve been able to do what you said you would do.

Where you reflect on what went well, and what didn’t quite go to plan.

If you aren’t ready for that then that’s fine.

But if you feel like you are, then it might be time to find someone to be accountable to.

Whether its your partner.

A friend.

A Personal Trainer…

Someone who wants to watch you succeed.

Someone who will be in your corner every step of the way.

Someone that will offer advice when you need it.

Accountability = Success.

Thats why its so important.

Thats why its probably the missing link.

Stop blaming the world and start taking some responsibility.

Stop comparing yourself to love island contestants.

“I’VE GOT A TEXT”…

F**k off.

I’ve got a text for you..

Those contestants are chosen for their perfect looks.

Scouted out on instagram for the model looks.

Get told months before they go in there so they can make sure they are in shape before the walk in.

Hire trainers to perfect their days for their summer in the sun.

Have their hair done so it looks perfect on tv.

Make sure they have their best clothes on 24/7.

Have you seen their PJs?

Not being funny but everyone in my house looks like back up dancers for Flavor Flav when we dress for bed.

Dont compare yourself to someone else’s perfect.

This is their highlight reel.

The series is basically a live instagram production.

You are watching a live instagram feed play out in front of your eyes.

Dont put your eggs in one basket, chuck them in my frying pan and we’ll have a laugh about it over some egg on toast.

Red or brown sauce?

“My big problem is bread”

No it isn’t.

Your big problem is eating too many highly palatable foods.

Blaming one food group on the problems you’re having is over simplifying it.

Its dismissing the complex behaviours we have.

Its dismissing how much comes into play when we find ourselves overindulging.

The stresses of life.

The social and family aspects that come into play.

Theres a lot more going on than just toast.

It aint toasties that are disrupting your plans to become mr/mrs universe.

Its the stress of work.

Its when we constantly forget to take food and need something quick.

Its when we can’t get our steps in because you’ve been working all day and have to be back up at 5 for another 12 hour shift.

Our lives are complex, and so are our normal behaviours and the way we deal with day to day life.

We narrow it down to carbs because its easier than thinking about everything else we have going on.

Do we want to think about how stressful family life can be sometimes or is it easier to pass the blame onto crusts?

Bread for PM.
