I want to stop digging my grave with my own knife and fork…🍽
Hi, i’m Steve.
People who already know me (from my other blogs) know I’ve been struggling to beat all kinds of obstacles since I was registered blind 20 years ago, at age 24….. BUT now it’s time to face my nemesis… Health & Fitness and it’s many enemies – overeating, obesity, excuses not to exercise and many more…
This year (2020) I finally said “enough is enough” and I’m arming myself with the knowledge about the right nutrition, exercise and learning how, as a blind man, I can break free from what feels like inescapable immobility – So that I’m ready to stand up and fight back for my health…AND i’ve never felt better and more energised …..despite being on beta-blockers that slow me down but help keep my blood pressure low enough not to cause more health problems and further sight loss.I know from personal experience that any “diet” is often short lived. I’ve always enjoyed eating super processed, high calorie foods and my love of burgers, bacon, kebabs and pizza is well known amongst my friends and family …this has continued and my seemingly endless attempts at dieting over the numerous years I’ve tried and failed to lose weight, have resulted in me often putting on more weight than I lost!
So why this blog?
After I worked hard and earned my 70 lb weight loss badge, using my new found knowledge, determination and my Fitbit app, I thought it would be a great idea to start this blog and try to help (in my own small way) inform, motivate and inspire more people to reach their own health and fitness goals by letting you know…”If I can do this…You can too!” 💪🏼
I’m now trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and learning even more about health, fitness, weight training, nutrition and If you want to follow my blog, I’d like to share my adventures with you – So that we can lose weight and get fitter and stronger Together. 😀
Application of new found knowledge…
I’ve learned that what you eat and drink, how much you weigh and how physically active you are can all make life changing transformations… and the fact that I’ve had my blood pressure tablets reduced and yet feel stronger and more able to lead a happier healthier life really does let me know there are benefits to giving up the lazy excuses and junk food. But I’m not a winner every day and I am a true believer in the fact that you need to stop beating yourself up when things get hard and you lapse… “You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.”
I believe that the greatest gift you can give your loved ones and the world Is a healthier you! ❤️ 💪🏼 😀
