They say you are twice as likely to get to your goals if you right them down so here goes!
I am doing this for my health so that I can be around for my kids.
I am a 41 year old father of three young kids and business owner. Over the last few years I have made an effort to train and had been training in the gym consistently up until late March when a series of lockdowns in Melbourne due to covid19 not only closed my business down but also my PT. I have fallen into bad habits and haven’t been training and have been eating and drinking way too much which has resulted in significant weight gain. I am alarmed by this as if I continue on the path I am on, I will be a prime candidate for heart attack if I am not already.
Further to this I have been struggling with a strained piriformis that occurred 18 months ago in the gym which has led to sciatica which has become so bad in recent weeks that I am struggling to sit and stand! I Saw an amazing clip on Youtube with a young couple in a camper-van who decided that the waterfast would be a good option to try to fix the young man’s chronic back issues. After a 21 day water fast he had healed his back and I am keen to give it a go to see if I can fix my back too.
I am probably somewhere in the vicinity of 30kg’s above what I would call a healthy weight having put on close to 20kg’s since March. Whether or not I can get close to that is up to me but I intend to put my head down and grit my teeth and see how far I can go. Ideally somewhere around 28-35 days would be a great start. I have juice fasted before for 14 days as my max.
I’ll weigh in on Friday morning. Don’t be afraid to jump in with any advice.
