I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks.
The first ever National (international really because it included New Zealand)
I went into it with my mind open and ready for change.
To my Mind & Body.
Here is what happened…
It was an awesome 6 weeks, I learnt so much about making better choices, being prepared and how I am healthier and happier when I put in just a teeny bit of effort.
Between the fantastic group of coaches checking in every day with mindset, workouts and nutrition tips and the encouragement of everyone in the challenge I didn’t want the 6 weeks to end.
Don’t think it was all sunshine and roses.
I fell down… HARD… On more than 1 occasion.
What do I mean by this..
I skipped workouts, sometimes days in a row.
I ate naughty food sometimes daily
I ate processed foods… yes sometimes daily
I got right back into it and did my best NOT to repeat those mistakes.
What I learnt from the 6 weeks.
That I really do react to bread, pasta, rice & other processed carbs. (Even the multi-grain that we have in our house makes me bloat a little)
That I have a serious love of potatoes and need to swap white for sweet because the sweet are lower GI and don’t make me feel bloated.
That even just a little planning of my day and my food for the day makes a HUGE difference to my wellbeing and results.(‘m not even talking about a full meal plan, just making sure I have plenty of MY “good” foods on hand for my meals and snacks.)
It’s OK to be boring and have the same breakfast every day. I just love my brekkie shake so much, same thing every day, Vanilla or Choc shake with Peanut butter and Psyllium Husks
