My diet was all over the place and the exercise I was doing was a waste of time. Sounds familiar right? I needed help, and fast.
After my first initial consultation with Absolutely Fit, I was motivated and felt for the first time that my ideal body shape was achievable.
I got straight into it. First with my diet, my problem was I was never organised and grabbed food on the go. With a full time job and a horse it is hard to find time to fit everything in, but Absolutely Fit gave me some tips on how to stay on top of this.
I would prepare everything the night before for the following day even down to having the porridge in the bowl ready to add water and put in the microwave and the egg ready in the saucepan to boil. I love sweet things so adding pineapple to my porridge rather than sugar or sweetener was a big advantage to me.
I would then have my mid-morning snack of seeds and kiwi fruit ready at work, my lunch of chicken or fish with veg and depending if on a carb day my sweet potato. Afternoon snacks were cottage cheese and some celery.
I would have cooked my meet the night before so all that needed to be done in the evening was steam my veg. There is so much veg to choose from it never has to get boring, and I started to use different spices and herbs with my chicken or fish.
I was training twice a week with Manjit. I have always been into my running and spinning and giving this up to work my muscles properly, so to give this up was hard, but within a few weeks and seeing the results I got was worth it. I still carry on with my running and my stamina has improved significantly.
I trained on my own or with a gym buddy who was also working with Absolutely Fit and soon my body shape started to change. I loved it. I didn’t have big bulky muscles but nice toned and slender muscles.
As time went on we tweaked my nutrition and workouts to shock my body, so it never became old or boring. I always wanted to do better week on week, become stronger and fitter.
I have suffered with food and food being my enemy for years, so not only has Absolutely Fitmade me look better, gave me more confidence, made me stronger it has also helped me overcome my fear of foods. Food is no longer the enemy but a friend.
I have started a new journey with Manjit and the team at Absolutely Fit now, and I am looking forward to where this journey takes me.
