So now you know a little bit about me I would like to share my background of how I got to where I am now.
I have played rugby for as long as I can remember but I am not playing currently due to work commitments (hopefully I can change this.) Love most sports and will try any sport at least once. So far I have tried all the usual’s; football, rugby, basketball, netball, rounders, cricket, hockey, tennis, badminton, squash and some not so traditional sports; lacrosse, ultimate Frisbee, handball, tchoukball, and goal ball.
As I mentioned health and fitness have always been a passion of mine so after leaving school I completed a BTEC National Diploma in sports science. While doing this I finalised the decision that I wanted to be a teacher and so applied to go to university.
I studied primary teaching at university for a year before changing to children’s physical education and doing that for 2 years. I did not finish my degree as I lost my passion for teaching so left to get a job. It was the right decision for me as I am now much happier.
I am also much happier as a result of the lifestyle change I have experienced since coming back from university. Below is a picture of me in my first week at university.
And me 1 year after this picture was taken.
As you can see there is a rather noticeable change. This was due to decreased physical activity, poor diet habits and drinking. A LOT of drinking. This was binge drinking and resulted in me being ill often.
This lifestyle continued for 2 years after this photo was taken. There was then a 7 month period where I got back to training but my diet didn’t change very much and my drinking didn’t cut down so there was very little noticeable change in my appearance although I did get much stronger.
Now I have moved back home it is time for a change! As I am now an official Herbalife© Independent Distributor I now have an amazing opportunity to change.
