Can I have it all please and can you make it a bit easier? Posted on 09 Jul 10:16 , 0 comments

I am sure that my parents didn't have as hectic a life as I seem to, at least not from my perspective as a six year old.

Since when has life gotten so busy? I don't seem to even have time for the simple things like saying hello to my neighbour! I love training and I mostly enjoy teaching - the first year is so hard that new stats show most NQTs don't make it past five years due to burnout, this crazy balance of work and life just seems so dam hard. 

So with all the plates spinning precariously over my head all of the time I have had many cringe worthy moments as some threaten to hit the floor.

I am not performing the best as work and work is so busy I don't get time to eat as regularly as I should for training, something I'm only really starting to appreciate the importance of now my training is really starting to progress, but I do have some time for myself, with a new training regime I am only training four nights and at work I have a priority list so I can sometimes lure myself into a false sense of actually achieving some progress through the list and take a night off every now and then.

I get asked at work"how do you have the energy to train" the answer is often I don't!

Mentally drained from my job sometimes I just want to go to bed. However not only do I have an awesome training partner I wouldn't want to let down, going to the gym is the only way I cope with my job.

Lifting weights, be it heavy or for reps depending on the program is just plain cathartic. Do I look or sound like a douche sometimes? certainly! do I care when cardio monkeys giggle at us? hell no! They have their sanctuary and I have mine, mine just comes with strength gains and a massive confidence boost.  

All in all I have to say a massive thank you to the boditronics crew as without their products like red mist I can honestly say a lot more plates would have been smashed over the last few months
