Warning: My Best Man Speech At The Weekend

So was best man on Saturday for my friends wedding…

It’s one of those situations where although it’s an absolute honour to do…

until the speech is done

you’re downing branding on ice and the welcome prosecco (literally…that was me).

Thing is, as people were telling me:

‘you shouldn’t be nervous Matt, you talk for a living”

And that is right…

I talk to groups of ladies on our programme every day

Lecture at Oxford Brookes University

Educate and present to patients just diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes by their GP..

And even go live on Facebook whilst walking in the High Street when an idea comes in my head that I feel may help someone trying to be a better version of themselves…

(funny thing is…people at the wedding even commented on some of my videos…especially the one of me saying that when you put water in front of you, you drink more of it, even if you don’t want any << simple, but effective).

But here’s the thing:

this is my COMFORT ZONE…

taking about diabetes, exercise, changing your thoughts, beliefs about diet, fat loss, and getting you to do the things you know you need to do

That – I believe – is my ‘superpower’. I love it..and the feedback I get gives me sooo much energy for life and do the things I do…

Just reading these stories here from some of the ladies motivates me to work as hard as I do …

But when I’m asked to talk in front of an audience that Im not really sure of..

y’know, what’s their sense of humour like?

how far can I go with the jokes?

what if they think I’m an idiot?

what if I forget to toast the bride and groom?

Literally, all thoughts going through my head…

which – as happens so often – did not come true

in fact, the speech seemed to go well.

And I even kept it short and sweet, straight to the point…with NO tangents..

but it wasn’t just the speech…

I rarely wear a suit…

So the whole:

ironing a shirt thing (It looks just as creased after I iron it…thank goodness for non-iron shirts)

tying a tie (I had to get Mrs Fruci to do…just could not get the length right)

wondering what the square piece of fabric is for (it goes in the front pocket, as I found out)

wondering why there was no pockets in my suit (apparently you have to cut them with scissors ha)

You see, these are all pretty basic things to most people 

but – for me – are pretty foreign..

All because I’ve rarely wore a suit…

^^^ I even have the same shirt I wore at my own wedding (in 2014…I think it was 😉)

and I’ve never had to give a best man speech before…

But my point is that it took actually DOING it to find out these things out…

That I actually CAN speak in front of people and give a best man speech…

Because – like anything – you cannot think your way out of a situation….

And it’s the same when it comes to doing the things you know you need to do with your food, exercise, fitness and eating habits…

sometimes we think that:

* we cannot exercise because of knee, back, hip or joint issues

* there’s no point exercising for 5 minutes as it won’t do anything

* you have to give up your favourite foods to lose fat around the middle

* you have to join a gym and get sweaty to get fit…

* it’s easier to start after Easter because of meals out (forgetting that there will always be meals out if this is going to be sustainable for you…)

Which – when you really challenge – probably aren’t true…

and why we go over why you can’t get motivated and what to do about it so feel better about yourself and have more energy to do the things you know you need to do in a kickstart one to one inside our 4 -Week Kickstart Programme 

(which if you want more info on just email matt@frucifit.com with the subject line ‘4 week’ and I’ll get you the details)

But for now, I’ll leave you with this quote:

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves” – Viktor Frankl

So train your​​ mind and master it…

don’t believe everything you think, today

Matt ‘best man’ Fruci​​​​
