🙏 Thankful Thursday: Joy & Jubilation! 😀

Hi fitness family! Today on the trail in the 28˚C heat i started thinking about how far i’d ventured along my health and fitness journey after 2 years, and how i’m managing to walk around this trail every day in this intense heat, with no hay fever and wearing my medium clothes…I instantly started giving thanks for everything! 🙏 😀

🤧 No Hay Fever…

I can’t tell you how much easier it’s been this summer without suffering from the constant streaming eyes, dripping nose and ferocious sneezing! My mind still hasn’t adapted to the new body work yet (even after 2 years) and i still walk around expecting the effects…But nothing comes, yay! 😀  

☀️ The Sun & The Heat…

I’ve never been comfortable in the sun and always hated the heat, i’d always try and find shade or find some other way out of it. Simply walking the trail, sitting outside a coffee shop or in my own back garden seriously felt like my bones were being steamed in a cauldron of boiling water, whilst my skin was being attacked by a million angry wasps with mini switchblades  cutting into me! 

BUT…🤔

Now i’ve lost 4 stone (56 pounds) over 2 years, i have the energy and fitness levels to enjoy stomping around on the trail for hours…Ii sit out with Sarah everyday in our garden (when the sun is out anyway) and i’m always the one wanting to stay out longer. I also have to think about being out too long and getting sun burnt…This is something i’ve neve had to think about before! 💪🏼   

The sun actually feels nice now and i can finally enjoy it. Now i understand why my lovely wife Sarah enjoys and loves to be out in the hot sun…And it feels fantastic!!    

Size XXL to Medium…😲

Since losing 4 stone over 2 years, and going from a size XXL t-shirt to a size medium. I have never been a medium throughout my whole adult life. I’m loving having to get a new wardrobe and ordering a medium size and it fitting like a glove…Not much beats this feeling! ❤️

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼
