Hello and welcome to my health and fitness blog – every_third_day. I am Toby and the first thing I need to tell you is that I am not a personal trainer. From 8am on Monday to 6pm on Friday I am an Account Director for a leading multichannel marketing agency. The reason for telling you this is because this blog is all about me sharing my journey to becoming a healthier and fitter individual whilst still maintaining a busy working life.
I have always been someone who loves being active, as a child I played every sport going. I often chose being on the sports pitch over schoolwork, much to the annoyance of my parents and teachers. As I have got older the passion for being active remains strong but I have discovered another, marketing. I love what I do and wouldn’t swap my job for anything, however it can make it hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Long hours, lots of travelling and an office with a limitless supply of sugary drinks/snacks means that there is temptation everywhere.
Right now I do an OK job of resisting temptation, however I believe that I have the potential to significantly improve my health and fitness level. This is why I am starting a blog, I am going to document my journey as I become a healthier and fitter person. I really want to see just how much better I can become and whether, now that I am in my thirties, I can actually be fitter than I was in my twenties.
every_third_day is a place for me to share everything I learn about living a healthier lifestyle. Whether that is a healthy recipe I discover, tips shared with me to improve my training or ways to maintain motivation. Integrity is really important to me so I promise you that my blogs will always be honest and written with the sole purpose of sharing my knowledge and experiences.
I hope that my journey will be a truly rewarding experience, however if every_third_day inspires someone to make their life a little bit healthier or helps keep them motivated as they pursue their fitness goals then this blog will have exceed my expectations.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and joining me on this journey.
