Well it’s been a month since boot camp, have I carried on with the healthy food and exercise or slumped back into everyday life?
I thought I would get home and go back to my old ways but instead I have shocked myself and all those around me that didn’t think I would do it.
Boot Camp has completely changed my life style I feel fit and healthy again and have so much more energy these days, I can honestly say that going to New You Boot Camp was the hardest but most rewarding thing I have ever done. Yes there were tears at times but worth every single drop.
It’s been a month and I have continued to lose weight, in total I have lost 27lbs (almost 2 stone) and so many inches that my wedding dress no longer fits me! I have to have it taken in.
There are NO more excuses and the advice I got from the trainers and nutrition squad always comes back to me. Especially when I grumbled at the nutritionist and said that I found it hard to organise myself to take snacks and lunch to work and that was my excuse for going to the vending machine and eating chocolate and crisps! The nutritionist then directed my response to a question to all the boot campers and asked, how many of us had babies? At least 70% of us raised our hands. She then asked the question, “How many of you would leave the house for a day with your baby and not pack any food or drink for it? We all lowered our hands. It was that moment I realised how little I valued myself, how I always put myself last… so little… that I was making excuses not to look after myself. You will be pleased to know “I am worth it” and now value how important my health and wellbeing are. No more excuses… not from me!
I’m looking forward to my wedding day now in my dress and its thanks to you guys, and that’s everyone from the Boot Camp Managers, the Staff as much as I wasn’t impressed at them getting me up at 5.30 am to run around a field. Now I look back and know that it was thanks to you that I feel as good as I do now. I can’t forget to thank the Chef for the wonderful food that he cooked for us all week. And last of all I must thank all the lovely girls that I met, I couldn’t have asked to share my week with a better group of girls.*
Thanks to you all x
