I started training with PT@home and following mp-body to see if I could make sustainable changes to my eating. Most of the time my diet was good; however I have always relied on exercise to fix my food indulgences. Last year I found with entering menopause and a few niggly but persistent injuries I was starting to store weight especially in my middle/stomach, and this had never happened before!!! MP and Carrie taught me that I can't out-train a bad diet. It is just a matter of eating the right things around my exercise.
I wanted to learn how I could change the way I exercise and eat to improve my metabolism, shape and look after my body so I could keep exercising into my golden oldie years. I learnt that more exercise is actually harmful to my poor body. I now give my body time to recover so I can perform at my peak at my next workout.
I have learnt how to reduce my exercise and get better results. No more niggling injuries; and I can't believe I love omelettes!
I am still adjusting and being conscious of trying to eat 5-6 meals a day. This will take a while to become natural to me, but the challenge will be to stick at it and not fall back into old habits. I have really enjoyed the nutrition meetings and mentoring by Carrie and the group. There are lots of laughs, stories and trading recipe ideas. Now to book in for that Tattoo!! Thanks.
