If you know me, you’re a follower of this blog or on some of the other social media platforms, you’ll know I’m into all things pertaining to music, entertainment and lifestyle. It’s an industry I’ve been in for over seven years now and throughout those years I’ve been afforded many incredible opportunities to travel, interview some of the biggest names in the game and to cover many high profile events. It has been great, hard work (contrary to what many might believe) but awesome nonetheless.
My hours are very irregular and an 8-5 quite simply doesn’t apply to me, but it’s the game I chose and I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly. However, in the last two years my priorities have shifted somewhat. Going to every single event you’re asked to attend is impossible and sleep has become a luxury. I’ve also realised that as I get older, I need to take care of me. So I’ve traded all night parties for early morning runs, swims and even cycles. I eat better, I try and avoid the cocktail food at the events and I try and squeeze in as much sleep as I possibly can. In other words I’ve finally found the balance I’ve been longing for.
Recently, I’ve become more interested in triathlons, fitness and nutrition. I’ve invested in some expensive gear, showing how committed I am to testing myself. I recently bought a Suunto Ambit watch, which I’m using more and more now and learning too. I invested in a wetsuit for them triathlons and my Nike running shoes are being put to the test a lot too. “Witness the fitness” huh? Talk about a complete shift, but it’s all for the best I tell you. I realised that I’m getting wiser and so my body is changing. I therefore have become more aware of what’s good to eat and what isn’t It’s interesting how these things go.
I’ve also been a consumer of a brand called FUTURELIFE for quite some time now. It’s delicious and from what I gather, the sporting industry approves too. As long as I’ve been a consumer, I’ve become a follower too and to see how this brand has grown which has been great. A couple of weeks ago I saw an interesting tweet that made me interact with the brand more so than what I usually do. Little did I know that this interaction would lead to a little partnership, which in turn has lead to this… This week I was invited to be a lifestyle ambassador for the brand, and I couldn’t be happier.
As I mentioned, nutrition is a field I’ve become very interested in and so to work with a brand that is arguably at the forefront of all things healthy, is a natural fit. Look, I’m no professional athlete. I’m an average Joe, who works long hours, exercises when I can and eats normal quantities and food groups like you. I participate in many events and outdoor activities across a variety of disciplines. I’ll be sharing my FUTURELIFE journey with you for the next couple of months, trying their new products, speaking to those responsible for ensuring their smart nutrition for life payoff line is exactly that. And who knows, I might even grab some interview time with some of the other ambassadors. I hope through this journey, you too will learn a thing or two. Sharing is caring J
