I've now got under three weeks until my deadline of August 10th, and the 95kg goal is looking like a massively tall order, unless I adopt some bodybuilding style dehydration scheme, but that's not going to happen- it's about health too, not just weight. So I'm going to keep plugging away at the nutrition as best I can, keep doing kettlebell and bodyweight exercises each day, and see how far I get.
Even if I don't reach that 95kg goal by 10th August, I won't be annoyed. This lifestyle switch, although I did have fixed waypoints in mind, was never just about shedding kilos. It's been about getting back to a body I can be proud of, and that I don't feel like hiding (much to the annoyance of anybody that has to share a mirror with me!). Within the next couple of days I'll be uploading another progress post that I prepared just before I left Hamburg; the last report before the 10th August. I didn't post it at the time because I hoped to improve further before a report was due!
Quick Situation Update
So, for those that haven't found out through other means, I have left my previous job at Runner's World, Men's Health & Women's Health, have temporarily returned to the UK, and am now working on becoming self employed, pursuing a few of my own projects. My goal with this is to be able to work wherever I am, and thereby bring in money whilst travelling.
I'll be in the UK for July & September, in August I'll be travelling with my girlfriend, Georgia, and in October hopefully spending a month with her in Australia.
As of November? Watch this space.
