The final stretch
- Aug 12th, 2019 at 1:05PM
I was OK this week but wobbled a bit on diet as we had a 4 day long weekend in Singapore. Too many meals out for me to navigate :) Exercise was good though and I have been working back into my road cycling so managed to get some decent rides in on top of the cycling I am doing for the substitute cardio.
I think that when I started I doubted in my ability to see the program out. I think I said that you would all be my superheroes if you managed to keep me on track. I haven't been perfect with work trips, holidays, date nights with my wife and so on - but I have been pretty good on the whole, and an awful lot better than I would otherwise have been. I certainly thought about throwing in the towel when I was on holiday but your posts kept me going - seeing all your enthusiasm and hearing about your progress. So thank you all for that.
So now in the final week, I think the main mental change is that I can see that I can improve my condition and I have improved my understanding in how to do so - particularly with my diet. Also - for me, an abiding image is the mule and how you need to be as stubborn as one to make real changes. How true.....
