Tax returns aren’t all bad…

Tax returns aren’t all bad…

It’s that time of the year again for me. When I get to sit down for hours on end and calculate how much money I have to hand over for next to bugger all in return.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that taxes are needed to make the country run, it just sticks in my claw when I see all the potholes in the roads, the hospital cut backs, the unemployed beying hounded about every penny that claim. And yet every year we have to pay more.

I’m pretty sure if I charged more for less in return ALL of my clients would tell me to go forth and multiply and find someone else, and they’d be right to.

But I digress. The point of this email is that doing my tax return gives me a reason to look at my work diary from a year ago…and guess what? I was EXACTLY the same weight the first Monday of this year as I was the first Monday of 2015! To the quarter pound. Not bad eh? I was pretty chuffed, seeing as my weight goal is to maintain the same weight that I used to compete at when I was kick boxing, 161lbs (11st 7lbs).

Now whilst this is good news for me, most people who looked at the scales and found they were the same weight as last January would’ve been gutted. Why? Because one of their goals at the start of last year would’ve been to lose weight. And they might have done, for the first few weeks. Then it all started to slip…no more dry January? I’ll have a few drinks. ..I’ve been good for 4 weeks, I’ll have a bit of chocolate…and that’s where it starts. Before they know it their gaining the pounds and losing their focus.

So how do you stick to the path that you set out for yourself?

You monitor yourself EVERY week. You weight and measure yourself, checking progress, and if you’ve gone in the wrong direction you figure out why and you put it right.

That’s it, that’s all it takes…oh, and having a good plan to follow in the first place.

I’m looking forwards to 2016. I’ve got my goals mapped out, I’ve got a roadmap to get me to them, and if I don’t succeed, it won’t be for the want of trying.

Be the same, me like me (if you’re on social media you’ll get that reference).

The bodyweight Method week 3 results will be out in the next couple of days. I already know that an old schoolmate called Tim has lost 12lbs in 3 weeks. He’s well chuffed, enough so to brag about it on Facebook.

If you think 12 weeks is too much for you, but need a kick in the pants to get things moving, I’m restarting the 10×10 Challenge 10 day plan next Monday. Get on board here (
