Several years back, laziness, pies and the occasional beer had resulted in a more than generous waistline and a strain on the bathroom scales. Life has been infinitely better since losing the excess and getting fit resulting in my ultimate challenge to date, completing an Ironman triathlon in my 40th year.
It’s still tough as I love food and a beer and having a desk based job makes for a pretty sedentary lifestyle. But, fill the rest of the time with active pursuits and the rewards are limitless.
