Max Atlas Year of Change Day Fourteen
Here we are, a whole fourteen days into my journey of getting back in shape. The past two weeks have definitely been full of ups and downs, but I’ve still made it to this point a lot better off than when I first started. That fact alone is plenty of reason for me to be excited about what the next two weeks will bring.
Moving forward, I’m going to place a greater emphasis on the mental aspect of my growth, which is equally as important as improving my physical health. I’ve already done some work in this respect, but up until this point it’s only been supplemental to my dieting and exercise. If my failures have taught me anything, it’s that a strong mind can be the difference between a triumph and a disaster. Strengthening the mind will not only help me reach my goals faster and more efficiently, but it will also lead to a more fulfilling life beyond my current ambitions.
Crazy excited and we have the body weight revel today at the end of week two.
Daily Image Year of Change Day 14 #YOC
Two weeks in and I think when compare back to Day Zero I am seeing some change now, have a look and let me know what you think.
As I reflect on my journey so far, I find it amazing how overcoming adversity always results in me growing in some way. Whether it’s mishaps with my children, cheat fast food meals, or bad days at work, whenever I fall, I get right back on my feet even stronger than before. I suppose I have nothing to fear then, because misfortunes like these are an inevitable part of any journey, and as long as I keep this fact in mind, there’s no obstacle that can deter me for good.
Geo Life Meal Plan for Day 14
Meal planning is becoming a bit of an art form and I am really enjoying it. Having made the extra time I have undertaken a bucket load of research and come up with new Protein shake recipes that I will be doing some meal replacement with.

Daily Planner of Geo Life Accountability Day 14
Sunday would usually be a rest day with a hangover, having a clear head have been able to get up earlier and get the most out of the day. The philosophical side of wellness is something of equal interest to me than the actual physical side. The transformation is really in 3 parts, body, mind and soul, and each one must be in place for the other to succeed.

Day 14 of the Year of Change Wrap Up
400 gram weight loss for a weeks work, felt a little be upset, as was expecting more. First thought was what’s the point, may as well just quit. The decided that was a bad idea and will save that for tomorrow. I am feeling better in myself and my clothes are a little less tight so I guess something is happening. This if anything has motivated me to go harder next week and make sure this happens. Go hard or go home.
