    What motivates you? Is it how you look? Is it what you can achieve? Health reasons? The “fat to fit” story? Helps you manage your nutrition? Socialising? Peer pressure? A combination of all these things? Some people exercise purely for aesthetics, and superficial reasons. Not for me personally but it is okay, as it’s your life and what motivates you. The road to happiness is long, especially when you are not happy with your body. Then somebody with a perfect physique comes along and you die a little inside. We have all been there. The usual defensive reaction to this is: “It’s okay how I look! I don’t want to look like that anyway, I am a normal human being not some pin up object.” Most of the time people, when presented with a picture or some information, think about how it pertains to their life and experiences. So we formulate an opinion based up on how it affects our immediate situation. This is normal because your perception of the world, is through your own two eyes, but remember there are more people in the world than you, what doesn’t motivate you might motivate somebody else. Pride feels no pain in the world of fitness, you will be more respected if you say “argh I wish my body looked something like that” rather than commenting negatively. “People aren’t supposed to look like that!” is common. We all need inspiration right? 
Having a Shapley, or curvy body is ok, so is being skinny as long as you are healthy. Being overweight can have repercussions on your health, but if you don’t want to exercise that is also okay. It is your life, your opinion, your perception. Although getting out of breath walking upstairs can’t be fun. However you look, whatever you want to do, it’s your journey. 
In order to improve you have to feel uncomfortable. Fitness begins on the edge of your comfort zone. 
You will feel embarrassed, silly at times, there is always someone better looking, fitter, stronger, faster. 
You shouldn’t compare yourself to anybody else for they are not you, and could never be you. Be the best you, if you want to improve you, this is what you have to do. Be happy and confident with yourself. It starts with you. Respect.#spartanfam

    I am at the #londonyouthgames  #proudtobecompeting coaching with my kids. Where are all the coaches from the athletics clubs in Westminster… Your kids are here so why aren’t you? You shouldn’t care about getting paid. 
If you are only doing this for the money, stop doing it. 
This really vexes me, not only do you charge the kids for training but you don’t turn up to the competitions when they need you the most! 
What I want to know is: Why at sporting events, do they always serve terrible food to the people. 
Why does the sports industry pay little attention to health… Lucozade as advertised by athletes which has as much sugar as coca cola who sponsor everything even though it dehydrates you. Macdonalds building their biggest ever restaurant right next to the Olympic stadium at London 2012. 
I know they have money but who cares if they are negatively tarnishing the image of sports with rubbish-health destroying products…
On a positive note we have a 200m and a 100m finalist. They are doing really well, they drank #vitacocokids #famfoods #spartanfam
