But it turns out that I've got the wrong paddle for the way I paddle (even though others said it's good for me) and despite thinking that I'm doing it right in my head...
I'm actually pretty rubbish at paddling.
To the extent that I was told I won't be able to do the event in one day and that I'd probably be better off going for the 4-dayer event (which was quite disheartening to hear).
But the most valuable bit of advice from the coach was this:
"As a coach, the last thing I want you to do is get 8, 10 or 12 hours in, fail and never try again.
I'd much rather you complete the 4 day event and come back ready go again and then do the one day event'
And you know what's funny about this?
It's the exact same things that I tell the ladies using my Shift Personal Training and Nutrition System.
You see, I get that you want to be back in your favourite dress tomorrow.
But what if instead of failing on another diet...
You built a health eating and exercise plan that fit your lifestyle so you could stick to it and never have to diet again?
Imagine where you could be in 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, and 12 months?
Just by building your confidence, making small wins and riding the 'fat loss ripple effect' as I like to call it.
And I'm not saying it's all slow fat loss.
I mean one of the ladies lost 4 lbs and 6.5cm from their tummy in just 7 days.
But the thing to remember is that FAT loss happens at different rates
and it's why I believe in personalising the plan to YOU.
Because if your diet doesn't fit your lifestyle?
Well, you're going to get to a stage where 'compromise' goes completely out of the window.
You see, work, home life, family, kids etc. will eventually take over when this 'motivation' to do the latest fad diet goes away.
Well, because fitness and health is the easiest thing to give up when life gets hard, especially if its draining your willpower.
It's why I aim to make things super simple and personalise this stuff to you.
Want to see how this works for yourself?
Well, this January I'm on a mission to help as many Ladies as possible stick to their New Year Resolutions, which is why I'm giving away 4 Personal Training Trial Packages to start on Monday..

PS. Just thought I'd finish with this quote that's actually in my book (Shift: Simple Guide To Helping Busy Ladies Think Differently and Get Their Bodies Back):
'he who has their health has 1000 dreams, he who doesn't has 1'
It's something I remind myself of a lot.
As I get its the easiest thing to give up and neglect. Especially because you get more of an instant 'high' from clearing your inbox and putting it off...
It's also easier to ignore it all rather that put yourself in a position that you feel totally uncomfortable about.
But that's why I make things super simple for you.
So you can do it even on your busiest, more stressful day, and even if you haven't exercised in months.
No lycra, no scary gyms, no intimidating weigh ins.
Just like minded ladies, little old me, and a level of support and accountability that will guarantee you don't lose motivation.
