Get Strong

Reason to start The Challenge

Approaching fifty and I don’t want to look my age, and I’m very aware of needing to be in good health and fitness as I get older. I also want to inspire others, and as a PT I think it is important to practice what you preach xx

What did you like most about The Challenge?

The discipline, routine and the timeline. It gave me a sense of purpose and having to do it or nit succeed in my goals

What was the hardest thing about your Challenge?

Not succumbing to bad past behaviours, as well as falling to a negative mindset

What impact has The Challenge had on your life?

I can use this as a base to improve on and get better

What would you say to people who are thinking of doing The Challenge?

Just do it!! You will not regret it!

Anything else you would like to tell us about your Challenge?

Those who know me, know I’m not prone to letting the truth get in the way of a good story (I kid you not!)

But when it comes to the challenge, I’m pretty open and blunt with the way it goes. Some days are good, some not so good. Some days I’m convinced I’m smashing it and going to blow it out of the park, but then some days, it’s tears and self doubt in bucketfuls, and absolute devastation that I didn’t do the job I needed to.

But alas, this is my real journey. No airbrush, no filtering or changing shape. Bumpy skin and all. If you were to see me in the street, it would be the same as the pics. I’m super happy with the loss of body fat as this has been by far my best ever challenge to date.

Regardless, I look to the positive…. I get up, put my shoes on, do what I need to do to get my training and steps in, and every day I aim to do my best. Doesn’t always work, but you get the idea. That to me is nit only the challenge, but ongoing life with all of the habits I have learned. Not a shiny perfect diet that lasts a nice 12-16 weeks, but a real hard slog that messes with the mind, that challenges you mentally to be stronger, every day.

So here’s to the jeans that get bigger, the healthy food I get to eat, and the people I so luckily get to help and who actually inspire me every day ❤️😘

Thank you xx
