What a difference a couple of years can make.
The picture on the left is when I first started working in a gym and was chasing a six pack (2012).
The picture on the right was last October when I was chasing the ability to link toes to bar in a workout.
Don't get me wrong, I always look after my nutrition and eat as well as I can to fuel my performance. But in comparison to then, I eat more, I train less and I am far happier with my appearance and proud at what I can do.
Whilst confidence is a big part of self happiness, I believe it is important to set goals away from the mirror.
Build confidence through performance capabilities and accomplishments. I can't wait for the qualifiers of Battle of the Beasts this year and see how far I have come compared to last year.
