We’re coming to the end of week 6, in White Collar DXB and I’m scared.
My fight is on October 16, and I’m fighting in front of a crowd – but that’s not what I’m scared about.
I’m scared because I don’t want it to end. I’ve found a new lease on life, I’m saying a happy ‘no thanks’ to brunch invitations, I’m waking up at 7am on weekends, and I’m feeling the best I have in my life – eating well, nourishing my body and working out around 10 times per week.
It’s easy-done really, (even getting up at 5am is easier) because I have a team and a coach to account to, a nutritionist, and a group of people supporting me, (plus unlimited access to the martial arts gym which helps).
I’ve realised the importance of having a healthy support network – the interests you share with friends are generally the past-times you’ll enjoy together, so boozy friends – you’ll party with, running friends – you’ll run with, and foodie friends – you’ll eat with.
How will I stay in shape? I’m not sure, but my god, I swear I will make sure I do.
How do you keep a healthy lifestyle? I need suggestions!
