to help others believe in the relative companies products and services.
But I kind of think that we’ve all become a bit bored of them…
Of course, a picture can paint a 1000 words etc..
But you can’t beat a STORY, right?
Lisa did our kickstart programme in December 2017 and then joined our Fit For Life programme in January last year
She had tried other stuff in the past – the usual things
And came across my website first before reading my daily blog. It took a couple of months before starting as she wanted to be sure this was the right route to lose weight and keep it off.
By week 10, Lisa had lost over a stone and 5 inches from her waist.
“This is now a way of life for me and not another diet. There are short daily exercise sessions which really help to tone you up and one of Matt’s phrases is “it’s you verses you” this really helps. “
But there’s always the worry of whether it’s just the ‘honeymoon’ period of the diet…so it was lovely to get this update from Lisa as I always want to hear how the ladies are doing after going through the programme:
it works out
at only 0.8 pounds per week on average….which most people would give up on after a while…
Consistent positive weekly habits regarding nutrition and exercise.
We provide a personalised and totally flexible nutrition system to help out…
So you can still eat the foods you and your family love – even with a sweet tooth.
Now as much as losing this weight and dropping a couple of dress sizes is great…
The knock on effect, as Lisa mentions, is her fitness levels:
Confidence, fitness and energy.
It’s an amazing feeling.
And – for sure – everything is just easier when you have more energy..
Lisa also mentions a about the short, simple workouts…
Unfortunately, most ladies come to me with the ‘experience’ of exercise is something that is boring
Classes can be monotonous and you can easily get lost amongst a large group where no one even knows your name and checks up on you if you don’t turn up or go through a hard time.
And we’ve all felt the eye balls staring at the back of our heads when walking into
a brand new gym…not really knowing where anything is.
To summarise then.
Here’s what Lisa did differently:
To summarise then.
What I believe to be the key ingredients to success to any transformation:
👍Commit to being a little bit better with your exercise habits (these can be as short as 5 minutes on our Fit For Life Programme)
👍Commit to making positive changes to nutrition without giving up the things you love
👍 Do something that is FUN.
👍 Do something where you feel comfortable
👍 Don’t try and figure this stuff out yourself – choose something where you are supported / encouraged and can get questions answered.
👍 Set a goal but focus more on the daily habits that will help you achieve that goal (this is what we do inside our Fit For Life Programme with the areas of Food, Fitness and Focus)
You DO NOT have to be special.
There is nothing heroic about the above.
Anyone can do it – if they want to.
Lisa definitely wanted to.
A year later she is a completely different…with her fitness and her body.
Her story is inspirational.
Which is why I am sharing it on here.
