Fitness – Part 2 (The Revenge)

In one of my previous posts which you can conveniently find (Right Here!), I ramble on about not wanting to be a ‘Fat Dad’ and that ”It’s time for me to get my mind focused the way it was before, all those years ago, get my head down cut out the bad food and hit the gym more than once every 3-4 months.”

Well it’s been 9 months since that post and my son is now just over 6 months old, ‘How is that working out working out for you?’ I hear you all ask in unison! Not well, not well at all! The gym has had my patronage once, or maybe twice in that time. My clean eating has gotten a bit better with a few weeks here and there with no bad foods but I keep falling back into the same old trap so many dieters find themselves in, thinking that I’ll have something ‘bad’ now and start again tomorrow, or ok today is a write off I’ll start back fresh on Monday. It really is a viscous cycle that only I can break.

The problem, well I say problem it’s not really, is that all my spare time now there is one thing and one thing only that I want to do. NO! Not Eat!! Spending time with my boy is my number one priority and I don’t see that changing ever.

My only option is waiting till he goes to bed and then going, that is going to be my plan  now in these coming weeks because early mornings are not an option.Not an early riser me. It’s important not to loose sight of the reason behind all this, to be there for him for a long time and if I continue on this bad health path then who knows how long I will be here for him.

One final thought………………..Pizza is good for you, right?!

Stay Tuned for more failings, I mean updates.
