I signed up for the Body Fit 7 week weight loss challenge because I needed to make a change in my lifestyle. Over the past few years eating healthy and taking care of my body became less of a priority. I focused more time on other aspects of life and seemed to forget what was really important, my health.
After committing to the program I was both excited and nervous. My nervousness was short lived, after our first personal training session with Christina. Everyone in the group was so friendly, and Christina was so motivating. Each week was an exciting challenge and I could feel myself getting stronger. The group sessions were by far my favourite part of the program. As a group, we worked hard, pushed each other, shared our complaints and tips about the food and had a lot of laughs.
The diet change was the toughest part of the challenge. I am a person who loves to cook, however I found the dietary restrictions very limiting and I quickly became board with the bland taste of the food. The first week was the most challenging. I seemed to always feel hungry and I was craving the forbidden foods such as coffee, salt, and sweets. I eventually adapted and began to enjoy some of the meal plan. I loved the breakfast and snack options, so much so that I will continue to eat these when the challenge is over. The lunch and dinner options were the most difficult part of the diet. Fortunately my husband provided me with enough support to help me get thought the meals (he even ate some with me). I found that towards the end of the challenge we became more creative with the spices to help make the meals more exciting.
I can honestly say that having the support of my husband provided added encouragement towards my progress, as we would often go to the gym together. The Boy Fit 7 week challenge was an educational experience and has taught both my husband and I about healthy eating and the importance of regular exercise. We both have decided to take what we have learned and continue this healthier lifestyle. We have made this commitment to each other and it is a lifestyle we want to continue to live.
I am so happy that I signed up for the 7 week challenge and completed it even though it seemed so daunting at the beginning. I am extremely pleased with the results. I feel stronger, I have more energy, and I am so happy with the way my body looks and feels.
I would like to thank all of the staff at Body Fit for their support throughout the 7-weeks. Thank you to Andy for creating this program and for pushing us every week to challenge ourselves. Thank you to Christina for being such a positive and motivating trainer. I am really going to miss the group workout session and especially my workout buddies. You all made this experience so enjoyable!
