Taking Stock

Another year older today. 34. But compared to how I felt a year ago I feel 10 years younger.

Last January I was drinking too much beer, eating too much curry and take-away, and generally wallowing on my ample backside. As a consequence I weighed 101 kg (220 lbs), to give that perspective I’m 6ft tall (1.82m).

Now I weigh 81.8 kg (180 lbs), look athletic, and carry much more lean mass. I can run again, work out with weights at a high intensity, monster press ups (I could barely do one a year ago), have more flexibility, better balance, and best of all I have far more energy and confidence. I even feel smarter! And I’m immeasurably happier.

So its been a hell of a year for me. Its hurt at times and has been hard work both mentally and physically but I’ve loved it and can’t wait to see the progress I’ve made when I reach 35.
