What you will read below is a super inspiring story of what it took and how it felt for one person to make a healthy lifestyle change. Make no mistake it can be a hard choice! Especially when your lifestyle, job and friends make it difficult for you to look after yourself. It takes courage, strength and determination. I admire this man for how far he has come.
I love that we can talk about “healthy stuff” and educate our friends so they can make healthier choices in their lives. I love that we can share recipes and laugh about how we put agave nectar with asparagus and carrots and ground flax seeds in our smoothies or over our oats. I love that we are both addicted to BodyRock.Tv and have a strange feeling that Zuzana is now part of our “circle of friends”. I love that we are same-same, but different. I love that our same same’s make us super close and our differences makes us even closer.
I am so happy and proud that Robbie has come this far with no thoughts of ever taking a step back to the lifestyle we both lead, not that long ago…
Only a few months ago my life was dictated by booze, drugs and sausage rolls. I worked in hospitality and that made it very easy to get stuck in a lifestyle of working nocturnal hours and partying very hard. I survived on minimal sleep and a diet of alcohol, red bull, cigarettes and fast food.
I have always been slim but while living this way; my body had turned scrawny with a beer gut and I lacked energy and zest for life.
I had been wanting to make some healthy changes in my life, but I never had motivation until a few months ago.
I realised that I had become a product of my surroundings. I knew that if I wanted to make a healthy change, I had to change where I was working and who was influencing me. That was probably the hardest part as many of my friends did not understand why I wanted to make a change and didn’t want to help at all – even though I wanted to change myself for the better!
Two people in particular were instrumental in this process. Jenn and my fiancé Ryan. I had watched Jenn transform in front of me and become the person I was trying to be. Watching her growth and having her support has been invaluable. My fiancé has always been a positive influence and will always inspire me to be a better man. Now I am in the best shape of my life. I quit smoking, have a limited number of drinks per week and exercise daily. I contribute by body transformation largely to BodyRock.Tv. I love Zuzana!!
My advice to anyone wanting to make a healthy lifestyle change is to stick with it! It is so worth it. I have never been happier and I feel like my life has only just begun.
