MY PERSONAL HEALTH PROGRAMME
Today I am really excited to share with you a health and exercise programme that I have been using. You may have picked up by now that I am quite health conscious and am mindful of what I eat and of doing daily exercise and addressing all aspects of my life in order to gain maximum wellbeing. But since the beginning of the year I put together a few different things that I have been doing on and off and followed it rigorously as a programme. It includes diet and exercise and certain lifestyle modifications.
So let me tell you where I’m coming from. I’ve been fortunate when it comes to weight and body shape, because all my life I could literally eat anything and as much as I liked and not put on any weight. My friends were NOT impressed. When I was expecting my first baby one of my friends said ‘oh thank goodness, maybe now you’ll put on weight and be fat like me’. Much to her disgust, I lost all my pregnancy weight. So, you get the picture. But in recent years I have been putting on weight. It’s to do with that horrible thing called ‘getting older’. It was okay at first because the weight was evenly distributed, so I still looked fine. But, in the last year or so, I started putting on weight on my tummy. And I hated it. It was noticeable and I just couldn’t lose it! Beside it being unhealthy because visceral fat is one of the worse for heart health.
So I tried a few things but nothing worked. But last December was crunch time! I indulged in delicious food which was as fattening as it was delicious and I saw the results on my tummy. That’s when I said ‘enough is enough!’ and decided to try something different and be very disciplined and serious about it. I sat down at my desk and did some research – which is probably the only time you should be sitting down for long (sitting for long is not good). And I went through all the stuff I had learnt and researched over the years and what I’d taught to my clients and I juggled a few things around and then came up with something. I devised a programme and decided to follow it rigorously. Through bad days and tired days and busy days and craving days. I stuck to it. And guess what? Two things. It’s a simple plan, not complicated at all, because I knew that with my busy lifestyle I did not want anything complicated to follow and, it turned out to be really doable and easy to follow. It stuck to it, the diet, not just what I ate but when I ate, the exercise, and the few lifestyle practices. And…..the results have been phenomenal! My tummy has gone down, yay! I feel more toned, healthier, fitter and more energized.
I am in the process of starting my clients on this and a few friends as well. I don’t want to tell you anything more about it now, because it’s different for everyone and it depends on where you’re at in your life and health status as well. For people who have specific health challenges or diseases, we will have to work with your doctor. But, if you are on my page and want to bring about some change in your life with regard to health and wellness, I’d love to see if I can help you. Contact me for a free session.
