I figured that all I needed to do was eat more than I was exercising. This becomes a problem when I am exercising 2-3hrs a day. That equates to A LOT of food... I do not have time to eat that much!
The solution is to increase calorie intake mainly through liquids; flavoured milk, cordial, soft drinks. That way once the channel is over, the liquid calories can be eliminated and I haven't formed too many bad habits with portion control and types of food. This will be the first and last time in my life I will be fist pumping when the numbers on the scales rise.
As well as trying to gain body fat, I have also been busy trying to increase awareness about our Swimming 4 Jess campaign. This morning I attended a Colliers staff meeting in the Brisbane head office and with the support of my mate Joey Dean presented to around 80 staff (although felt like 200) outlining my inspiration, the cause and my training journey so far. Thanks so much for inviting me to speak Joey. Hopefully, my public speaking comfort level increases with my waistline.
As you all know we want to raise money and awareness for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
I also want to inspire people, like Jess has inspired me. To experience all life has to offer by stepping out of comfort zones, chasing dreams, taking risks and just giving it a red hot go. You never know what is around the corner.
